YES.... to prevent cutting of any factory wiring (this use to be the old install method and requires much more time and expense) and potential electrical fires, you can now buy quite cheaply, what is called a Radio adapter harness.
As you wish to install a Kenwood radio to your Toyota Scion, simply buy an adapter loom which has a 2005 Toyota Plug on one end, with a Kenwood plug on the other (this essentially replaces the wiring loom that came with your Kenwood unit).
So, it's that easy .... Plug and Play.
And... if you sell your Toyota and wish to put your old Toyota radio back in, the original radio just plugs back in. PRESTO !
There should be a diagram entitled "adding and amplifier to a factory stereo" in the owner/install manual of the high to low convertor. You need to signal tap some audio signal from your front or rear stock speakers in the car and those wires need hook up to the high to low convertor's input side. From the convertor you connect RCAs that go to your amp. In other words find your rear speaker wires and hook them to your adapter then hook up the rca wires
Try radio shack, or stereo sales/installation place for ready to go plug adapter. For a few bucks, it saves headaches, and butchering the wiring in case you want to re-install old one later when trading in or selling the car.
