I cant really assist in this matter but I can let you know that I have a system in my 2006 Chevy Cobalt and that I have an aftermarket cd player installed. I had to pay $130 for a special adapter for it to be wired into the system because GM's newest idea of installing the stereo and airbags on the same wire scheme, is kind of a dumb idea.

You can grab a switchable power line from the fuse box for a remote lead. Just make sure you use one from something that only turns on when the ignition is on or else you will kill your battery.

I just got through hooking up a converter that i got from best buy in my wife's cobalt, i got in the trunk and spliced them directly into the speaker wires and i got it to work that way. Now im having trouble figuring out how to hook the remote wire from the amp to god knows where on the factory head unit. Good luck

How to install aftermarket radio in 2009 mazda 6


The smartest thing is spend the money and purchase vechial adapter pigtail made specially for your brand of head unit and presided connector for a easy plug and play, from crutchfield.com. No guess work no schematics or wiring diagrams to follow plug in connector to vehicle harness and back of your aftermarket stereo put the couple plastic pieces of trim and your done. The support side of crutchfield.com is a very good resource. But if you don\'t want to spend the cash for pigtail, you can create account on auto zone.com and go to vehical repair guides and click locations. Why electrical schematics are in the tab labeled, locations, is beyond me. Print it and it will give you the speaker color codes and wire functions with connect pin location numbers. Just remember the industry standard, except for couple exotics, is that first color listed is the main color separated by a /, forward slash, and followed by the color of the strips. And japain cars occasionally use a stopped lines. Same color codes as if solid stripe. Auto zone also has the manufactures service procedure of how to properly remove old stereo unit with out damage. If your car is too new for auto zone listing then I suggest pay $20 to alldatadiy.com as a mechanic the shop pays $1500 a year subscription for alldatapro.com which has all the manufacture procedures, tsb\'s, schematis, and locations, but for twenty a year per vehicle you have access to all the same information as the mechanic in all non dealership associated shops.

When doing wiring always use soldering iron, pencil snapped, not a wiring gun. Gun gets too hot unless your building battery cables. Walmart got one for something like eleven bucks. And use double walled heatshring for 16-22gauge wire. Double wall has heat activated glue that makes water tight seal.any corrosion from water corrosion will be noticed as distortion or noise in stereo system. Are you installing amplifiers or subwoofers? For the pound chest felt thump? Are you using factory speakers? What wattage are speakers? And measure resistance with digital multimeter or use speaker impedence Value. Head units only produce up to a 4 volt constant variable frequency and current to transmit signal. The 50watts x 4 channel is not 50watts per speaker its true my 50 watts peak and 1/2of peak watts of RMS WATTS AT 25. AND DEVIDED BY FOUR SPEAKERS IS TRUELY SOMETHING LIKE 6.5WATTS OR SO. NO IM NOT GRABBING CALCULATOR, 6*4=24 SO A FUZZ OVER. I HAVE FOUR SIX BY NINES RUNNING OFF A 4 CHANNEL 600 WATT RMS 1200 WATT PEAK DUAL MONOBLOCK AMP RUNNING AT 4 OHMS PER SPEAKER WIRED IN PARALLELD EQUALS 2 OHMS OHMS PER BLOCK AND TOTAL OF 4 OHM TOTAL CIRCT LOAD OHM WITH ALL FOUR SPEAKERS USING BOTH BLOCKS. THE 600 WATTS IS RMS OR HALF OF PEAK AND WHILE USING DUAL MOMOBLOCK MEANS ONLY 300 WATTS PER EVERY 2 CHANNELS AT 2 OHMS. BUT IM WIRED AT FOUR OHMS AND OHMS LAW SAYS TO DOUBLE IMPEADANCE OR MEASURED CIRCUT RESISTANCE YOU NEED TO DEVIDE WATTS. SO 150 WATTS PER BLOCK. AND DEVIDE FOR TWO SPEAKERS AND GET 75 WATTS. SPEAKERS ARE RATED AT 90 WATTS, THANKS TO NEWEST 6X8 INCH, YA 8, 4WAY FULL RANGE SPEAKER. 4 WAY MEANS HAS FOUR SPEAKERS BUILT INTO ONE TO PRODUCE FOUR DIFFERECT FREQUENCY RANGES. STAY AWAY FROM COMPONET TYPE SPEAKERS AS YOU,LL HAVE TO MATCH IMPEDENCES, AND WIRE THE THREE OR FOUR SPEAKERS TOGETHER TO MAKE THE ONE FULL RANGE SPEAKER WITH CAPACITORS. AND ... ON AND ON. SO IF USING OEM OR ORIGIONAL MANUFACTIOR EQUIPTMENT, SPEAKERS YOU SHOULD NEED TO KNOW IF THEY ARE COMPONET OR FULL RANGE. AND NEWER CARS HAVE THE AMPLIFIER AND ALL THIS MATH MATCHED TO PROPER RATED SPEAKERS. AAN WELL AS A CFEW YEAR OLD VEHICAL MAY HAVE A 1200 DOLLOR KENWOOD IN IT WITH BUILT IN AMPLIFIERS THAT AFTERMARKET SYSTEMS DO NOT HAVE. BUT NO TAG SAYS THAT. IT\'LL SAY DELPHI FOR CHEVY MOPAR FOR CRYSTLER , MOTORCRAFT FOR FORD, AND SO ON. SO. HOW FAR DEEP DO YOU WANT TO DIVE? THE MONEY SPENT ON CONNECTOR ADPTING HARNESS FROM CRUTCHFIELD MAY HAVE JUST PAID FOR ITS SELF. IN STRESS AND ****** OFF TIME SPENT. AND THEY HAVE GOOD PRICES ON HEAD UNITS, SPEAKERS, DASH ADAPTER KIT, FOR PLASTIC SIZE AND MOUNTS FOR THE DIFFERENT SHAPED UNIT, AND GIVES A DISCOUNT IF YOU BUY THE UNIT AND ADAPTER HARNESS TOGETHER. WITH FREE SHIPPING A LOT OF THE TIME WITH AMAZING SUPPORT PAGE, CRUTCHFIELD IS THE PLACE TO GO FOR MOBILE AUDIO.

each speaker in your car runs the wiring thru an amp. So each spkear has its own amp for the bose system. You can not hook up a none bose radio If you do you will need to run new wires and replace all the speakers. Sorry.

Installing radio in 85 mercedes-benz


there is no amplifier. you just need to find the memory wire that is hot all the time and the 2 wires that are hot with the key on. One is for radio operation and the other is for antenna operation. The speaker power is supplied through the fader switch in the center console and the switch is powered by the head unit. Just hook up your circuit 30 and your 2 circuit 15 with a ground and run you speaker wires to the head unit or if you are installing an amp from the wires from the fader switch. That switch can be popped out with a flat blade screw driver, Hopefully i have been helpful

Audio system upgrade


I'm not sure of the system that comes stock in your wrangler but what I like to do is replace the stock speakers with infinity perfect speakers. You can find out on the internet exactly what sizes are stock then usually I just buy them off ebay. If you look them up there are a lot of brand new in box with free shipping. The infinity perfect speakers I think have the best overall sound for the price. If it still isn't loud enough for you get your self a little 200 watt amp and use an inline splice with the factory Rear speaker wires behind your head unit and for the inputs to the amp. Make sure and leave the stock wiring so if u want to sell the jeep but keep the speakers; all you have to do is unplug and go.
