Re: AFTERMARKET RADIO

You need to relocate the orange screen (which I assume you have). Then you can fit a single or double din in there (with minor modification). Or you can out a single din in the clock area.

Search the AV forum for more info.

AFTERMARKET RADIO

Just bought a double din pioneer. I have an 06. I have the oem color screen with nav/backup camera. Is it possible to relocate that screen?

Re: AFTERMARKET RADIO

Yes. Relocate it to the overhead console would be my suggestion.

Why use that instead of the oem stuff I might ask?

I feel that the oem stereo is not as what it should be. Wanted a unit with more sound options and features. I did a little research and went with this.


I'm prepared to do whatever work needed to make the unit fit. Dremel,cutt, and so on lol.

Any extra harness, kitt i may need?

Re: AFTERMARKET RADIO

No kit- its all custom fab. Youll need a Nissan antenna harness adapter, wiring harness. You will want to send the RCA signal out of the new radio, so you need the appropriate harness. Metra 70-7551

AFTERMARKET RADIO

Thanks for the help john. Here is what im confused about. The metra 70-7551 harness.


That harness is needed if your useing the factory bose sub? Reason asking is, I have an aftermarket amp hooked up to the bose sub harness in the rear with a 12" sub.

Next is, the nissan antenna harness adapter. I came across 2 of them. Is there a part number or site to get it from? These are what i found.
1)



2)


One more thing, is there such a harness that taps into the factory plugs to an aftermarket radio?

Thanks for the help.

Yes thats all you need. The sub amp signal comes out of the main amp. No special thing needed there.

They used to sell them, but there were too many aftermarket radios out there it wasnt really feasible anymore. Yore gonna have to match the colors yourself

Re: AFTERMARKET RADIO

So pretty much from my understanding here is that the the only thing i need is the nissan antenna harness and to use the rca outputs on the back of the new radio to my rockford amp. (since im not using the factory bose woofer) Also i have to match up the wires from the new radio to the factory speaker wires. Is there a diagram of what color wire is what speaker? Thanks..

Re: AFTERMARKET RADIO

With that metra harness and your pioneer harness, the colors are the same- industry standard. Match them up. They are listed with the metra plug instructions too. But you only have a few to hook up anyway: Red- ignition, Yellow- constant 12v, blue/white- amp turn on, orange (may be orange/white)- dimmer. There is no ground in the metra harness (if there is, dont use it)- ground your radio to chassis ground. Then hook up the RCAs (they change the colors so check the metra instructions).
