So I bought the Sound Ordnance B-8PT from crutchfield. I have an 06 spec b with nav so if I were to go aftermarket head unit I would need the jdm double din plus more to just hook up my subwoofer.
My goal is to install this on the oem headunit. So here is some pics of what I have done so far.
I just did some prepping and have
Remote- kind of ready
My understanding of it (may not be correct) is that I have to use the remote wire because I cant use RCA cables... because oem headunit doesnt have them. And I would need the remote wire to connect to something that has 12v when the car turns on rather than a constant 12V. Does anybody know where I could tap into? Please be specific.
I will taking apart the headunit to see where I can make connections to. Im very new to electronics and would need specific instructions (wire colors would help) to where I could hook up the remote wire. My next question is that they also gave me a high power input wiring plug. I have no idea whether I have to use this, or even where it would go because the wires are so short on it.
Thanks in advance for the help.
Heres how my install went...
Heres how it went
Picked up some supplies at home depot
I used taps to connect to Pin #9 with the remote wire.
Then electrical taped
Then I cut two 7 foot long lines of speaker wire.
Copper (+) goes to red (+) and Silver (-) goes to black (-)
I used butt connectors but when I started it up it did not work. I am temporarily using wire nuts till next week spring break and I will get a soldering iron and fix them correctly.
These are the four wires I used Pin #2,3 (+ front speaker wires) and 8,9 (- front speaker wires)
Refer to post #4,6 by sigma.
Then tap them all and electric tape around them.
Then here it is installed but again, I will clean up the wires once spring break comes.
