Okay you will not find a wire to splice into. Assuming that you have an aftermarket Head unit, your gonna need to hook those rca cables in the back of the head unit (the red and white female inlets) and run those to the amplifier, afterwhich can you run at least 6 to 4 guage wire (available at walmart) from the amp to the subwoofer. Now make sure you buy a power compacitor to handle the extra juice needed to run that amp, which is alot cheeper than buying an extra battery and running that off your alternator (not a good idea by the way).

2ooo Ford Mustang,Got MP538U TUNER work. cd look like it was playin no sound though.Exchanged it for MP638u.SAME BULL. cAR GOT ripped out mach system. Carstereo wires without harness


Hi,

If you are wiring a Kenwood KDC-MP638U to a 2000 Ford Mustang, then below information may be of help:
  • to my knowledge, the original stereo unit uses 2 8pin connector and a single 7 pin connector;
  • if the connector with the harness has been cut, then wire splicing may have to be used based below;

  • If you are using external amplifiers, then it is possible to trigger/switch them with the blue/white wire and their RCA INputs connected to the appropriate RCA OUTputs of the Kenwood;

  • Additionally, the KDC-MP638U has built-in USB port/interface.
  • Incidentally, if what was previously installed is a full Mach system, pls be informed that there are seven (7) versions from Mach 1000.0 to Mach 1000.7, which one was installed?
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Factory subwoofer 2005 subaru, the after market head unit I got dont have the connectors for it.


try to get a "speakerwire to rca cable" connector. hook it into your back speaker wire and run your amp off of that. then hook the sub up to the amp as usual. without an amp, just splice into your closest speaker wire

Where is the amp on a mach 460 system in a 2002 mustang gt convertible. Want to add some subs but cannot locate a wiring diagram.


there are three amps. One is in the front in the dash board. The other two can be accessed through the trunk in the very back. You have to remove the two side panels first and then there are screws or some kind of bolts on the top of the back panel holding the back panel in place. Remove that you'll see in the center your motor to your convertible top and on the side your two amps.

if you have any questions just email me... blnich0@uky.edu

good luck,

Hi,
I don't think you can do that if your system was not designed for the additional speakers and a subwoofer. Your system is not a Home Theater surround sound system.
You could add the additional speakers by splicing the speaker wires but I wouldn't recommend it and it would not work like a true surround sound system.

Without knowing which system you have (460 or 1000) I can only suggest going to this web site for more info:

Intermittent problem no sound


Double and triple check your connections. I soldered my connections on a speaker a little while ago and I found out that it only looked soldered and it was alittle loose and would cut out. Also you could check a site out, installdr.com. You should be able to find out the wire colors for you speakers there. Although I don't think that, that will cause a big problem. If you are listening to music at loud volumes, I would also recomend an aftermarket amplifier. It adds so much more that a factory amp can. Just food for thought. Good luck.

That particular stereo system have self powered speakers. The speakers amplify themselves. You may have one of the speakers amp go out.
