Regardless of whether this is an amp or a head unit, an install kit is either very helpful or necessary. If it's an amp, you'll need it for sure - you can't power an amp with 18 gauge factory power wiring like a head unit can use. You need to get at least 10 gauge power and ground wire, 18 gauge remote turn-on wire, and RCA patch cables to conduct the sound. If you have a factory head unit, you'll also need a line-level adapter to give you a source for the RCA patch cables.

If this is a head unit, you'll need the adapter harness to plug your existing stereo harnesses into the new head unit. It makes it simple - the wires on the new head unit are color-coded for what they do, and the adapter harness is identically coded. Match the colors, then plug it in. You may also need an antenna wire adapter (some cars require this).

I just bought a new kw-AVX740 radio and i have a 01 mustang and i don't really no how to install it


first and foremost you need to buy a car audio installation kit for your car model and year. Wal mart has some, but i think you may need to drive down to your local car audio shop and buy one from them if wal mart don't have them. Remove the old/factory radio. If an aftermarket radio is already installed then you may get lucky and find the harness already installed, but depending on what kind or radio it is( ex: DIN or Double DIN), but the specs for your radio is Double DIN(fat) so you may still need to buy the installation kit. Once you have the kit, everything is color coded, just match the wires and connect, then plug the harness after you have secured the wires. For a clean professional installation look, solder your wires(60/40 solder and soldering iron needed) and seal the connection with a heat shrink tube(audio shop carries the tube as well) and your good to go. I found you the install manual, just copy and paste(make sure all wires are connected with keys off the ignition until everything is good and connected)

I need help installing a Pioneer KEH-P7000 in my vehicle. I have the adapter kit, but the back of the receiver is rca type cables and the adapter kit is not. How the hell do you install??? Please help with...


The back of the deck should also have speaker wires that you will need to mate up with the adapter kit.As for the RCAs there should only be four of them and you really only need them if you are going to install amplifiers in which case the adapter only has three wires that you need to connect. Red Yellow and Black ( accessory power, Constant power and ground ) I have the same deck and want to use it but alas I have no manual.

I Have a 1997 chevy blazer and was told to purchase the stereo installation kit (model AW-444GM). I cannot seem to figure out how it is supposed to fit. The problem i've found is that there is not a kit...


This is a multi kit that will work for a variety of GM vehicles, so you have to match the brackets from your factory radio up with a set of the brackets that came with the kit and attach them to the main housing. Sometimes you can even still use the same brackets that came on the factory radio you just need a 10mm socket to get them off and use the supplied nuts and bolts in the new kit to attach them to the housing.

1) round up all materials needed such as door components and indash radio,install plug for aftermarket radio,get a radio install kit they are like 10-15 bucks ,and if ur doing a double din radio you will have to cut trim to fit and inside compartment behind radio,but if your doin stock 1 din you will be fine.
