Talking in general you have to connect the "line out" from the cd/receiver at the "line in" of the amplifier and the "sub out" from the amplifier at the subwoofer. In case you need detailed informations provide me the model for the amplifier & subwoofer (I assume that the cd/receiver is a kenwood kdc-139)

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply.
If you are satisfied, accept my solution.

Thanks and regards

How to wire the Amplifier to sub-woofer and then to receiver(HEAD UNIT) :-- 1) Gather your equipment (Amp, Subs, Stereo, and wiring). You can find wiring kits at most stores, ~$40 for 4 gauge wiring and In-line fuse, you won't need anything larger than 4 gauge. 2) Run your amp wires (battery, ground). Figure out where you're going to place the amp, put the beginning of your power (red) wire there and give it about a foot of wire extra, then begin to hide and run the power wire to under the hood. If you need to drill a hole in the fire wall, be careful not to hit anything on the other side. Make sure this wire is safe from any moving objects. 3) Detach the power cable from the battery and attach your sub's power wire to the power cable for your vehicle; leave it unattached. If you bought a kit it comes with an inline fuse, if you didn't you need to get an inline fuse. Just cut the power wire, insert the inline fuse and reattach. 4) Place the amp where you want it, then attach the ground (black or brown) wire to the amp. Ground it to a piece of bare metal (not painted); most people unscrew a bolt from a seat attach the wire and screw it on. 5) Now for the RCA jacks, if you're going to use your stock stereo and run the amp from there you want to buy a LOC (Line Out Converter) ~$20. with the LOC you get a small box with 2 RCA's coming out and 4 speaker wires out the other, you want to take out a door speaker and run 2 of the 4 speaker wires to it, pay attention to the pos. and neg. You don't need the other 2 speaker wires, from here secure the loc out of sight and run the RCA's to the amp, plug them into the "IN" RCA jacks. If your using a after market stereo on the back there is 2 RCA jacks, just run the RCA from there to the "IN" on your amp. 6) Soldering 12v power and ground connectors to the wires will reduce circuit resistance and make your power cleaner, giving you better sound.
Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

On the back of the deck, there is RCA jacks. Use the ones that say REAR output. The cables go from the Rear output jacks on the deck to your amp rca jacks.

Also on the back of the deck, is a blue wire that says Remote wire. The wire gets connected to the REM on the amp.
(that way amp turns on when you turn your key on)

The RED positive (+) wire on amp goes directly to your battery.

The BLACK negative (-) wire from amp gets directly connected to your trunk. Find a bolt to remove, scrape a bit of pain off the surface, put cable on it and tighten it down.

Then there is the sub. If you are using 1 sub. Put Red positive (+) wire on Left channel ( + ) of amp and the black negative (-) wire on the Right channel negative ( - ) on amp

If you hare using two subs, then one sub goes on left channel and one sub goes on right channel on amp.

I install these for a living as part of my business so let me know if there is anything you need help with

Hi

ghostride90,

1st have the bLAUPUNKT amp, electrical connections set

be sure it turns on properly.


2nd If it turns on properly , then you have a choice to use " Bridge "

( lot louder ) or a single amp .( for speaker connections )


• Connect the positive side to the positive out of the amp

• Same with the negative ( Pioneer Subwoofer )


Connect either L or R output of your Kenwood CD Receiver to the

Audio IN of your amp respectively.


Let me know , if you need more assistance , so I can post

further to help you resolve your connection problem.


Regards

    Does the Kenwood Receiver turns on?

    If it does , then you need the wires that need to " turn on " a separate amp.( like yours )

    On most , it is Blue /White


    you may need to have these






    How
    to test for Continuity











    How to use a multimeter






    To confirm

    I'll post further

  • Rommel Cana
    Rommel Cana Jul 10, 2010



    On your Kenwood KDC 139




    • At the back of the unit








    Here is your option A, if there is a corresponding input in your amp ( RCA input )


    If, there is none on your amp, then we may need to connect it through the speaker out

    of your Kenwood CD Receiver ( Option B )


    I'll post for more

  • Rommel Cana
    Rommel Cana Jul 10, 2010




    the manual for the above can be downloaded here :



    http://manual.kenwood.com/en_contents/at...


    http://ae.kenwood.com/Car_Entertainment/...





    • And these would possibly matched ( Option A ) with these kind of amp VA1400






    While I still look for more possible solution , Is that harness OEM or aftermarket?


    Can you be able to look inside the unit?

    • And try to look for the biggest capacitor that you can see inside the amp,

    ( If can , the positive of that capacitor goes to the + side of your Battery , the second one

    could be any among the wires )


    Of course the body ( amp ) is to be connected on the chassis of the car ( negative )


    • If your amp is similar to the above ( which might not be ) , then try to find the Model number


    • If your amp differs ( which probably is ) , then once it turns on , there will be voltages on each

    output ( going to speakers ) at about +6V , if it is having bridge type Audio IC inside


    • If it is not , then the output is coupled via a series capacitor ( less likely )





    Still looking!

    here is an image of a sample Blaupunkt T harness





    The Blaupunkt system uses a vehicle-specific Plug'N'Play T-harness


    that connects between your radio and factory plug. The harness contains all the power,

    signal, and speaker wiring necessary to connect the Blaupunkt amplifier to your factory


    stereo. Once the T-harness is connected













    However,

    The Plug'N'Play system works only with select vehicles

    and should not be use in factory systems that include external amplifiers.

  • Rommel Cana
    Rommel Cana Jul 10, 2010



    here , another sample image:







  • Rommel Cana
    Rommel Cana Jul 11, 2010



    Basing on the data above, The harness is very specific to car specifications.


    So, if you need to connect the said amplifier, Color Coding of the wire, will be just a display

    for a moment.

    I cannot guarantee it will work, unless you may have to open the Unit and check for the things

    I have mentioned above.


    First , you need to power the amp ON, then connecting your input and speaker will be later.


    If these step is not followed, connecting anything will possibly damaged either/ or both

    of the two units.


    Have the Kenwood wired and working?

    have you found the " remote ON " ?


    These may be a long shot, but these is how it works!

  • Rommel Cana
    Rommel Cana Jul 11, 2010


    These is an image of a sample capacitor:





    • Find the one that the positive terminal ( capacitor ) is connected to wires going out of the Amp

    And the negative going to the chassis.


    • that would be your Main +12 ( to be connected on the battery +12V )


    • Most of the wires , will go to an output and input stage, but there is one wire that would be

    the " Remote IN " to turn on your Unit ( Amp ).


    And these is your secondary objective.

  • Rommel Cana
    Rommel Cana Jul 11, 2010



    On the group :

    " then from the other side,in a bunch of wires."

    8 wires

    red
    red and black

    white
    white and black

    • These are possibly your Input ( But we will check these later )


    " then theres a "


    yellow,

    brown,

    green

    and purple.


    • Either of these last four, could be your remote IN or main B+ 12V

    • Use a multimeter to verify, But do not connect it to battery supply yet.


    Is there a connector that looks like any of these?









  • Rommel Cana
    Rommel Cana Jul 11, 2010



    • To find the " Ground " , negative of the Amp,

    Set the Multimeter to continuity

    Look and find for the four colors

    namely

    yellow,

    brown,

    green

    and purple.


    Either of these , could be connected to the chassis of the Amp.

    Once these is done , other wire will lead us to the supply and post back what you find .

    Include the resistance value ( also in reverse of the Multimeter probe )

  • Rommel Cana

    • Not knowing the Model of your Car Amp and having a very little details on your unit , would be

    hard to find, and may not be available for download.


    • To have the complete details , you may need to specify which car , it has been formerly

    connected , these would at least narrow down our search.

    • You are looking for a data that is very specified for a certain specific car.And transferring it to

    another car, would void the unit warranty and may damage the unit , if not done properly.

    Here is a link for example:

    http://www.holden.com.au/owners-info/tec...

    • Have someone to help you trace and look inside the unit, These could be a more sure thing to do.

    once you have identify the ground ( negative ) then more to follow next.


    You can post images, if you want to, so I can encircle , and give you more possible solutions.


    Regards!

    • These unit can only be successfully connected once it powers up.

    But you might be having a Compatibility Problem connecting your Kenwood Unit.

    We will never know till the unit power up, Once it powers up, we will try to find

    a suitable input source for your Blaupunkt Amp ( which I feel do not have RCA input ).

  • Rommel Cana
    Rommel Cana Jul 16, 2010



    For whatever data you can download, you can never be sure , It is really right, till you open the unit

    and cross check it with a



    Multimeter



  • Rommel Cana
    Rommel Cana Jul 16, 2010



    While we are still looking for your Wiring guide,

    • Have the Kenwood Unit powered , and check if it can run separately.

    Meaning it can drive speakers,

    • You will be needing that output terminals to drive your Blaupunkt Amp

    • Once it does , connecting your Blaupunkt Car Amp will be to follow.

    ( If the Amp , is powering up ).

  • Rommel Cana
    Rommel Cana Jul 28, 2010



    Have you tried opening your Amp?, I can help you further if you can give me details.

  • Rommel Cana
    Rommel Cana Aug 04, 2010



    • have you opened up your Amp? and see what is inside?

    Even a low cost analog multimeter can detect which is which.

Hi,Things You'll Need:

  • Amplifier
  • Subwoofer
  • Power Wire (~17ft: 8 AWG or lower)
  • Ground Wire (~3ft: 8 AWG or lower)
  • Remote Turn On Wire (~17ft: 18-14 AWG)
  • Speaker Wire (~3ft: 14 AWG or lower)
  • RCA Cable (~17ft)
  • Fuse and fuse holder
  • Phillips Head Screwdriver

First, under the hood of your vehicle, disconnect the cable from the Negative (-) terminal of the battery. This will prevent any accidental short circuits from happening while installing your amplifier.
Locate an area under the hood where you can mount your fuse holder. Be sure to find an area that is as close to the battery as possible since the fuse can only protect against a short circuit if the fuse is within the short circuit. Once you have located an area, drill and screw your fuse holder in place.

Once you have pushed the power wire through the grommet, find the power wire under the hood and pull enough slack to connect the wire to the fuse holder. At this point, you may place the fuse in the fuse holder and attach the power wire that has been fed through the firewall to the fuse holder. You may also connect a short power wire from the positive terminal of the battery to the other side of your fuse holder.

Generally, a good place for routing the power wire is along the drivers side edge of the carpet. This is usually held on with plastic fasteners that can easily be pried loose and refastened. Removing the rear seat will also give easy access to the trunk. The rear seat is usually held in place with two clips that are located under each 'bucket' seat. Sometimes there is also a bolt the holds the seat in place.

    RCA and Wire Routing

    Gain access to your aftermarket CD receiver or stereo headunit with RCA outputs and remote wire hookup. Once you have access, connect your RCA cables to the Subwoofer Output (SUB OUT) and also attach the remote turn on wire to the 'RMT' or 'REMOTE' wire on your CD headunit (usually a blue wire). Run these wires back to the trunk to the amplifier location as you did with the power wire. To prevent noise from entering the system, run signal and speaker wires down the passenger side of the vehicle and keep them separate from the power wire.

    Connect the Power Wire to the '+12V' or 'PWR' connection terminal on your amplifier, connect the remote turn on wire to the 'RMT' or 'REMOTE' connection terminal on the amp, and also connect the RCA connectors to the RCA Input on your amp.

    Crimp a ring terminal to one end of your ground wire. Find an existing bolt in your trunk that you can attach the ground wire ring terminal to. If one does not exist, find an area that will be covered by carpet where you can drill a whole and place your own bolt. Be sure to scrape away some of the paint to achieve good conductivity for the ground wire. Now, attach the ground wire to the 'GND' or 'Ground' connection terminal of your amplifier.




    Connect the subwoofer to the amplifier with your speaker wire. Make sure that the positive (+) terminal on the subwoofer is connected to the positive (+) terminal on the amplifier or your subwoofer will be out of phase 180º.

    Now, reconnect the negative terminal of your battery and check to see that the amplifier turns on and that the subwoofer is audible. Once you have ensured that everything is properly connected, reassemble your car and enjoy the bump!




    Tips & Warnings

    *
    When choosing your power, ground, and speaker wire, make sure that you are using a gauge of wire which is suitable for the amount of power that it will be delivering.
    *
    Select a fuse that will be only slightly larger than the current that your system intends to draw. Selecting a fuse that is far too large can cause the wire to heat up and cause melted insulation and possibly catch fire.
    *
    Anytime your are working with electricity there is always the potential for danger.
    *
    Make certain that the negative terminal of the battery is disconnected while working on anything electronic with your vehicle. This will prevent a lot of accidents.

Which terminals to use


if your amplifier is 2 ohm mono stable - you can wire them in parallel.
Put a piece of wire from one + terminal to the other + terminal on the subwoofer.
Then do the same to the -.
Now pick one pair of teminals from the subwoofer and wire it to the amplifier. (one set of subwoofer terminals will have 2 wires each).
If you reply with your amplifier make/model, I can tell you the best usage.

Amp is on, Subwoofer works, but no sound.


here is a short test you can try, remove the rca audio cable from the amp & connect a diskman or toher audio o/p device that you can hook up with the same rca wires, turn on the amp & see if you have sound. you can also remove the speaker wires from the sub & using multi meter read the ohm's of the sub, most subs are 4 ohm. Hope this help locate your problem
