Yes blue/white is for remote on/off from radio or you can use 12 volt switched behind the radio or from car fuse block .The 10PIN connector on sub is just for speaker level inputs.Since you are using RCA you wont need to use it

How do you hook up a sub and amp to a stock radio with NO RCA outputs?

you can splice into the wires for your rear speakers and install some of your owns rca's and just use the low pass filter on your amplifier to eliminate the mids and highs from the frequency to your subs.

I just got the Kenwood Sub KSC WA100 from my cousin with no electric wires or nothing so pretty much what all do i need and where can i find it i will be putting it in a 07 nissan sentra 2.0

Subs are subs, they come with no wiring. You need an amp and all necessary wiring to get it bumping. What type of deck do you have? Where will the sub be placed? In the trunk? Amp install is easy. Also suggest purchasing one of those amp kits for $20-$30, makes it a bit easier.

Where do you buy the 10 pin connector

I used a computer power cable (the one that plugs into your IDE HDD) and soldered the male end onto the circuit board. Sorted :)

Installing self amplified sub to factory stereo

Hello Jax GS300,

Yes, you can use RCA cables. Just wire in a "low-level" converter.

Using RCA's is really the best way, allowing you to run shielded wiring to the sub, making it less likely that the wiring will pick up electrical interference. I'd install the converter on the rear speaker wires behind the dash.

If you do not want to convert the speaker output, you can drive the Kenwood directly from the speaker wires. The diagram in the install manual shows the connections coming off the rear speakers.

Here's a link to one output converter. This one will convert all 4 speakers.

Hope this helps.

Kenwood receiver/sub problem

The amp's remote turn-on wire is probably connected to the blue wire coming from the back of the stereo - this is intended for a power antenna, which is why it only works when listening to the radio. Disconnect it from the blue wire and connect it to the blue/white wire coming from the back of the receiver and you should be good to go.
