JVC SP-PWA-235 has one input and I'm hooking it up to a Kenwood Stereo System. The receiver has 3 inputs for the sub-woofer, red/white & black. I just need to know if I use the red or the white...

The 3 RCA type connectors (red, white,black) are all pre-amp outputs, not inputs. (Cut the girl some slack) the black is for the subwoofer. The red and white are pre-amp outputs for either up converting from a 5.1 to a 7.1 system, or for running a X.2 (2 subwoofers L &R). If you are running 2 subs, be sure on one of them to reverse the polarity.

Ive got a kenwood kvt-512 n im tryin to hook an amp n subs up but dnt know where to plug my RCA jacks from the amp 2 the radio!

Your unit should have 2 plugs in the back...one for the audio and power wires to connect to your factory connections and the other plug is just RCA connections for your video, subs and front speakers. If you have a 4 channel amp and a amp for your subs, you will have to split the 4 channel amp down to 2 and run them to your front RCA connections. Subs will connect to the sub connections. If yours are not listed then you may have to track down a wiring diagram. Hope this helps.

Kenwood KVT-512 iphone compatibility

Just ignore the airplane mode prompt and if your wiring is correct everything should work.
With my BMW I had to connect both the solid blue (pwr ant) wire and the blue with white stripe (p conn) to the solid blue wire from the factory harness.

It isn't obvious that either of these are needed as the KVT-512 has it's own power supply but the way most factory power amps are installed the power from the KVT-512 is not used and the car manufacturers power amp needs to be turned on.

If you are listening to the radio the pwr ant wire will turn on the power amp, this didn't seem obvious because the BMW doesn't have a power antenna. And when you are using the DVD player or the iPod connection you need the P Conn wire to turn on the car power amp as the ant pwr is disabled because you are no longer using the radio and Kenwood assumes you will not need the antenna so no power to this lead.

Solder all three wires together and you should have sound all the time.

Cant get bass, fuse is fine

You don't say if you've configured the Receiver to know you have a subwoofer (under Multicontrol - SUBW YES). Unless it knows about the Sub it won't send anything out that single "preout". You can get an RCA splitter to run that single output to both inputs in the Sub.

Just as an experiment, temporarily run one a pair of cables from the REC OUT to the Sub's inputs and tune an FM station to prove the Sub amplifier is alive. If it's still silent, it's dead. If there is sound (muffled) you need to go back to the Receiver to figure out why the Sub Preout is signal-starved.
