Any sub will need an external amp - a head unit amp doesn't have the suds to drive it. You can try it with the deck but you'll only get a whisper out of 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.

How do you wire sub speakers to change omes


if you have a 4ohm sub you can series it with another to make a 2ohm load. this is done by + from amp to + on one sub then take the - of that same sub and run it to the+ of the other sub then you only need to run a wire from - of that sub to the - on the amp. NOTE IF YOUR AMP IS BRIGED THIS IS A 1 OHM LOAD!! IF THE TOO SUBS ARE ON ONE CHANNEL THIS IS A Two OHM LOAD IF YOU ARE RUNNING 8 OHM SUBS THEN YOUR AT 4OHM PER CHANNEL AND 2 OHM BRIGED

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.

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.

Remote wire


If it is one sub with one amp, one remote needs to be hooked up. Not familar with your exact set up, but should stay constant for all. The remote signals the amp to turn on power when the deck is turned on thats it.

No Sound from Subwoofer


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.
