    help on audio for dvd

    I have a kenwood cd deck, front outputs go to a two channel amp for my
    speakers and rear outputs go to a mono amp for sub.

    I got a car dvd player that I put under the passenger seat. How
    should I hook this up to my car stereo?

    You should check the specs on the kendwood deck. There's a good possibility that there's an AUX / cd changerconnection on the back. This would be the choice way to connect into your system.

    I don't have an aux, I have a cd changer control which looks like a plug at the end of a pc keyboard only bigger. Only kenwood cd changers use that plug.

    You should be able to find an adapter cable that plugs into the Kenwood head unit which will give you a RCA Aux input.

    I don't know what model HU you have, but here is a an example of an aux-in adapter cable I found for Kenwoods:
