Thanks.. much helpful.. I can't wait much longer to install my stereo.. It's killing me.. Stupid cold weather..reehmicks: the first two shots are when the nitro is running
the next two shots are when the nitro is turned off
the blue led readout is in the engine compartment behind the left fender.
nitroman first why did you hook the acc wire with the power wire? why didn't you just hook it to the cigarette lighter wire along with the remote wore to the amp. second you don't have buzzing from the panels because the crossovers eliminate the bass going to the speakers because they are made to only send the high frequency and eliminate the low frequency which is where all the bass comes from. So no more bass no more rattling of doors. And trust with the amount of bass in my nitro with the doors dynamated I have no rattling and no remorse to not swapping out the factory head unit right now. And the box is bangin already with just the stock unit.epper:
Not to hijack, but I'm doin it anyway.I ran the acc wire like that cause I was monkeying around with it and when you shut the truck off it loses its memory. Unless I have the wires wrong red to red black to black, and the yellow that comes off the radio harness is the constant? so maybe thats the one that goes to red and the red goes to the remote? I dunno what do you think. never had this problem with other installs. I still have some other stuff to do like a cap and the volt meter like what you have which is pretty sweet I may add.
Niiiiiice! I just ordered the dash kit to install my Kenwood

The red power line from the vehicle is the constant power line. This is the one that you would want to hook up to your yellow (usually) line from your radio. That's the one that will retain the memory/presets/track position/etc.. The black wire will go to the black wire and then you would attach the red line (positive) from your radio to the cigarette lighter for the 'key triggered' power line. I coulda swore there was a pic someone posted of their hookup to the cigarette lighter, but then again, it was probably one of those 'I promise I'll post pics' threads.. There's a lot of them.. :Na_Na_Na_Na:
This is my photo from my more recent install pics. I don't know how helpful it is, but it shows the cigarette lighter and the two wires coming out. The blue/pink(violet?) wire is the positive line.Does anyone have this picture? I need to know excatly how it is done.
Thanks.... I have to finish hooking up my radio this eveningThis is my photo from my more recent install pics. I don't know how helpful it is, but it shows the cigarette lighter and the two wires coming out. The blue/pink(violet?) wire is the positive line.
