Wiring a Kenwood KSC-WD250 Subwoofer

HI, I have a Kenwood KSC-WD250 Powered Sub but do not have the 10 pin power wiring harness or the remote control unit. My question is- does anyone out there know the connections for power, gnd, and switched remote power (blue/white wire)? I using the RCA level inputs. Also, will the unit work w/o the remote control (I can use the head unit control)? Thanks!

    I have the same problem but I have the power lead. I can control the sub from the head but is it as good as the remote?

    So your saying you can use the rca cables instead of the wire harness if you dont have it...What about if you don't have the remote as well?

    I too am missing the wiring harness for my Kenwood KSC-WD250. (It was left in my old car when I removed the sub.) My new vehicle is already wired with RCA cables for a sub-woofer. I can purchase a new wiring harness online but a replacement remote is too expensive. Do I have to install the wired remote to make this sub work or can I just use the car's head unit to control the bass? Thanks!

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

    That is incorrect. The 10 pin connector has power and ground connections, not just speaker connections. The rca cables are for audio input.

How to disconnect Kenwood KSC-WD250 Powered Subwoofer from my car stereo


There should be RCA's power and ground connections. the rca's run behind the stero, the ground runs somewhere to the frame of the car and power runs to the positive post on the battery.

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.
