Only if the AMP's output section has a sub woofer connection point.

What color is the wire for the subwoofer on the Kenwood KDC-400U


The sub-woofer isn't connected to the wiring harness of the KDC-400U. It has to be wired separately. Then the sub-woofer input gets connected to the KDC-400U sub-woofer out using R/L audio wires as show on page 13 of the Quick Start Guide. The direct link to the Quick Start Guide is http://manual.kenwood.com/files/4fd9a24acb9fa.pdf . You may be able to use the wiring information on pages 12-13 to help you determine which wires aren't going to the sub-woofer.

Most Kenwood Car audio manuals are available here: http://manual.kenwood.com/en_contents/search/ .

I wish that I could give you more information.

Hi friends i am using kenwood subwoofer sw-300 its not working from two days, i observer relay triping sound from inside the amp relay omron g5r 2232p-kw 48vdc has continue tripping while power on,


Short circuit protection energizes. Check for any external short circuit with connecting sires to sub woofer. If it found OK, the sub-woofer output amplifier section circuit inside the set is fault. Short circuited component/s. Check and replace them. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.

I want to connect kenwood woofer sw-07 to pioneer amplifier vsx-d859tx. i am unable to connect please guide me.


Hello,

I don't recall correctly if your Pioneer has a sub out RCA connector, and if the Kenwood SW-07 has a low level input. So the usual way is to connect it using the speaker wires.
You connect either the FL or the FR to the sub and it should work.

Good luck

Subwoofer is not playing


It is hard to say. The sub-woofer has its own amplifier, although it is supplied the sound data from the main amplifier. It could have a problem with the battery power circuit (Sub-Woofer Amplifier Connector Pin 6, LIGHT GREEN/VIOLET) or it could have a problem with the GROUND circuit (Pin 2, BLACK/LIGHT GREEN) Or it could possibly not be receiving the signal from the main amplifier (Pin 7, BROWN/ORANGE "+"), (Pin 8, RED/BLACK "-"). Or it could be that either the sub-woofer speaker is blown, or the sub-woofer amplifier is defective.
There is also a "High Audio Mute" circuit that connects between the main amplifier and the sub-woofer amplifier.

Can i power 2 12 subs a rockford punch z and a xplode with this amp i found all this **** in my garage and i need to know if it will power all this


First of all. Using two different kinds of sub woofers, is not an option, as these two sub woofers have different specifications and you should never mix sub woofers. Now the better choice from the 2, would probably be the Rockford. (cant be sure without knowing the models, power handling is also a factor in how well either of the sub woofers will play, but Rockford as a rule makes better sub woofers than Sony does) In my opinion, both the sub woofers deserve a better amplifier than what Boss has to offer. However to connect either of these sub woofers, you would need to determine how many voice coils it has and how many OHM the voice coil/s are. If it is a DVC (dual voice coil) and each voice coil is 4 OHM or 2 OHM, then you can connect one voice coil to one channel of the amplifier and the other voice coil to the other channel of the amplifier. If it is a DVC 2OHM you can also connect it wired in Series/Series to give a 4OHM load and should be connected to the BRIDGE dedicated speaker outputs of your amplifier. If it is a SVC (single voice coil) and it is 4 OHM, then you can connect the sub woofer to the designated speaker outputs of your amplifier that states BRIDGE. DO NOT run the amplifier in BRIDGE mode at 2 OHM as this will probably damage the amplifier. dreamsystems

I have 3 10" clarion


If your sub woofers are DVC 4OHM: Connecting three together in Parallel/Parallel would make your amplifier run a 0.67OHM load or if connected Series/Parallel then you would have a 2.67OHM load. If your sub woofers are DVC 2OHM: Connecting three together in Parallel/Parallel would make your amplifier run a 0.36OHM load or if connected Seies/Parallel then you would have a 1.67OHM load and Series/Series a 12OHM load. So if your sub woofers are really DVC, it would be impossible that your amp would be playing 4OHM. The numbers just don't add up. There are amplifiers out there that can deal with 0.50OHM loads but expect them to be on the pricey side, but fairly so, because mostly higher end brands tend to manufacture them and are usually pretty good. Remove 1 of the sub woofers. If i knew what the subs where 4 or 2 OHM DVC and what amplifier you are using i would tell you how to connect them for the best possible result. hope this helps dreamsystems

Connecting a car stereo to an amplifier


you have to connect your 4 speakers to 4 speakers output direct to your car stereo no need of amplifier to 4 speaker but speakers should be small not like a woofer, and you have to connect your sub woofer by using amplifier don't connect direct. connect the output of your car stereo (using 2 RCA) to the 2 RCA inputs of amplifier. If u connect your 4 speakers to your amplifier then your car stereo does not support Left Right channel.
You can also connect your laptop or iPod direct to your amplifier.
Good Luck

Subwoofer Dual voicecoil wiring


1 ohm will draw too much current.those are designed for a 2 channel 2 ohm drive for each sub.running 4 ohms will be easier on the amplifier and since impedance is not constant it may run 3 ohms at some frequencies anyway. another solution if your power amp is bridgeable....put the coils in series on each woofer making 4 ohms.then parallel the two 4 ohms to make 2 ohms and run the amp in bridge mode at 2 ohms.since bass is omnidirectional,you can do it

Which jacks to wire the subwoofer to?


Your receiver should have an RCA connector on the back panel that will be marked "sub woofer" or "LFE out". That connects to your sub woofer with a standard RCA type cable. Also, some powered subs have left and right speaker level inputs and outputs in which you would indeed run the sub woofer through the speaker outputs. The down side of that type of connection is that the line level converter inside the sub woofer will take a slight amount of your receiver's output power, although that is rarely detectable. Also, if you have a Dolby Digital receiver, using this connection method will take away systems ability to accurately control the low frequency effects of a soundtrack.

Good Luck,

Amp light is on but no power to my subs!


Hi There.

When you say the 40 Amp fuse blew. Was it your mains battery fuse or was it the fuse on the amplifier? If it was the fuse on the amplifier then you may have hurt the amplifier. The Kenwood KAC-8101D is a 1000 Watt monoblock amplifier. Therefore if you say that 1 of your woofers is not playing, then it is almost certainly blown if you are sure it is connected correctly. Try disconnecting it and only running the woofer that tries to play. If this woofer is still working correctly, you will notice a drastic drop if the sound of your bass. The reason for this is because you have changed the impedance load on your amplifier due to the fact that the other woofer is not working. Have your working woofer checked and replace the faulty woofer then you should be banging again.

Hope this helps!!
