Wired My Stock Sub w/New Kenwood HU!
I just got my SVTF 4 months ago and was getting around to doing this. I finally did it today and it works great! Only thing is that I cut the wrong white/black wire and was getting a humming sound when connecting the sub. When I realized my mistake and used the right white/black wire, all was good. I mounted a Kenwood KDC-BT755HD HU if anyone would like to know. Thanks for the write up!

|PlaneCarBoat||Okay so the wiring looks fairly simple. The only question I have is where do I plug the RCA cable into on my head unit? Here is my HU.|

|kevinw1797||I got it. It was my head unit. I had another Kenwood and it is fine. Works great.|

|Stlsinger||Mine was solid blue and thick. And I had to cut it out of the harness. Use a test light with the key on|

Yeah I checked. My unit has a specific blue/white wire for sub output. I am wondering if it is not my head unit. I have another unit I am going to hook up and try.

|Stlsinger||Make sure you use the right blue wire for power.|

I just wanted to say that I have an 03 ZTS with the audiophile system. I have read through ALL of this plus the other posts. I am very clear with all of the pictures, descriptions and discussions and I am 100 percent sure that I have everything hooked up correctly. I have triple checked my connections which are soldered in. The only thing I am not certain of is my head unit. It is a Blaupunkt Memphis MP66 and it does have a sub output along with the ability to turn it on and to adjust it. The problem is that I get NO sound out of my amp or sub. It worked perfectly a couple of days ago before I attempted the switch. Its got me really scratching my head. Any ideas?

So I have an issue I haven't seen in here yet. I have no issue with the blue /white wire from the hu, however I have an RCA cable with a white/black grey black wire attached to it. Ive traced these wire and they are in with the vehicle harness. Are these the wires I should be using or do they go to something else? I took a photo but it's not letting me and it from my phone.
Also what port in the head unit is this RCA supposed to plug into?
