Hooking up kenwood cd player in a 2000 silverado but the wires aren't labeled coming out of the cd player. Pls help


If you use a wire harness adapter, you just have to match the colors from the Kenwood plug to the wires in the adapter. No guesswork.

Kenwood uses the CEA standard for car audio wiring:

Yellow: 12VDC constant power
Red: 12VDC key-switched power
Black: Ground
Orange/White: Illumination
Blue/White: Remote output for amp turn-on
Blue: Power antenna activation

White: Left front speaker (+)
Gray: Right front speaker (+)
Green: Left rear speaker (+)
Violet: Right rear speaker (+)

Each wire with a black stripe is a negative speaker output.

You can download owners' manuals from Kenwood's web site.

Hi Lo Adapters
Hi/Low adapters are devices that installers use to convert a speaker level stereo to RCA levels so it can be hooked to an external car stereo amplifier. You can cut the speaker wires and hook the hi/lo adapter right up or you can tap onto existing speaker wires without cutting them so the speakers still play while the tap gives you a connection to the hi/lo device for adding something like a subwoofer amp to the existing speakers.... We have hi lo converters in TWO CHANNEL and FOUR CHANNEL configurations and we have them WITH and WITHOUT adjustments.. The adjustable hi/lo converters allow you to fine tune the hi/lo device to match other levels in the car or to make sure the match between your stereo and amplifier is a good match.. The adjustable line converters are the most popular.. We also have some specialty hi lo converters that have special radio plugs on them that may plug right into your factory stereo.
Now you can install an amplifier with your factory radio or install a new radio with your factory amplifier!

Can i hook X-530 to a laptop?if so how.


Yes , you can hook X-530 to a laptop.
I have the same speakers and they come with a 'game adapter'; one side of it accommodates the three plugs and the other side has two plugs for an RCA cable adapter. All you need now is a 2xRCA plug to 1x3.5mm stereo plug which you can buy for $5-$10 from JB Hi-fi and hey presto, you can plug it all into the single headphone slot on your laptop.


Thanks for using Fixya.

Hi there,

All speaker cables go into the surround sound system, they should be colour coded, then phono cables into the TV or just the the normal green audio cable into the green audio hole on the computer

Stereo wiring chart


If you go to anyplace that installs car stereos you can purchase an installation harness that will connect directly to your factory harness in your car. That way you would only need to wire your Kenwood harness to the instllation harness and that is just a matter of matching colors from the Kenwood harness to the installation harness. All you need to do after that is plug it in.

The wiring on the Kenwood harness is as follows:

yellow = constant 12 volts
red = ingnition (12 volts when key is turned on)
black = ground
white = front left speaker positive
white w/black stripe = front left speaker negative
grey = front right speaker positive
grey w/black stripe = front right speaker negative
green = rear left speaker positive
green w/black stripe = rear left speaker negative
purple = rear right speaker positive
purple w/blackk stripe = rear right speaker negative
blue = power antenna
blue w/white stripe = remote amp turn on
brown = phone
orange w/white stripe = illumination

No Sound Through Speakers


Hi Jake,

If you haven't done so already, I'd try double checking the speaker wiring, you may have some exposed or badly kinked wires behind the unit.

Cheers,

Audio Output problems


Currently you have the blue wire from your Kenwood head unit connected to the blue wire in the Chrysler wire harness adapter. You need to disconnect this wire, and reconnect it to the blue/white wire coming from your Kenwood head unit instead. You probably already have the remote wire from your subwoofer amp connected there; both wires need to be attached to the blue/white Kenwood remote output. Your LHS is equipped with a factory amp. The blue wire in the Chrysler harness activates the amplifier, but it's connected to your Kenwood's power antenna activation output; therefore it's only being turned on when the tuner is selected.
