Question about Kenwood KSC-WA100 Car Subwoofer

1 Answer

No Sound from Subwoofer

I bought my KSC-WA100 used but still in great condition a few months ago. It was professionaly installed and worked great for about a month. I had it up really loud one day, and it stopped working a day or two after that. It has power because the light in the back is on. I brought it back to the guy who installed it and he said there was a problem with the subwoofer itself because the hook up was fine. Any ideas what to do or where I can have it looked at? This would be a huge help!

    I took your advice, and I also double checked all the connections as well as the fuse... and once I plugged it back in it started working again!!! Amazing! Thanks so much for your help, its been a long time since I've had some decent sound. Thanks again!

    I've had the same problem with my kenwood subwoofer as well. I changed the fuse, and I still do not see the LED light up indicating that it's on.

You should be able to check this yourself pretty easily, Just connect the power and turn it on. Connect an audio cable to the input. Make sure the level control on the sub is turned about halfway up or more. Now, touch your finger to the tip of the plug on the other end of the audio cable. You should get a nice hum out of the subwoofer. If not, then the sub is bad - if it has a user-replaceable fuse you might check that first. If you do get a hum out of it, then the sub is ok, and the problem is elsewhere. Might be a simple as a bad cable or an option on your amp/receiver is set wrong.

Is this the only way to run this is in a car can I put in a home.


I have mine running in my room with just a small 12v - 8amp battery (dies quickly) but if you get a power converter for 120/220v - 12v with at least 12-15amps you could run in your home easily

I just got a kenwood subwoofer KSC SW2000 with electric wires but has been cut. can you please provide me a picture or an installation manual if possible for proper connection. Thank you


Hello mikealtre,

Hopefully there's enough of the wires left to see their colors.

Here's a link to the manual. Other than the speaker level inputs, there's only 3 wires you need to be concerned with. Yellow is main power, black is ground, and blue is remote.

Hope this helps.

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.

Power wire


You should run a new power wire to the battery or fuse box from the Sub. For safety there should be a fuse on the cable at the battery or fusebox end.
