Default Radio Antenna

I did the installation and it worked fine. Attaching the 13 pin to the ground at the top of the radio has eliminated the ground loop hum.

Only one problem. While completing the installation, I managed to pull out the antenna wire from the radio. It appears to be a devil to reattach it. I contacted the Subaru service people about it and they said it required a special tool which they did not have.

Anyone out there no how to reattach the antenna wire to the radio?

Thanks

Default audio booster? plus full-time RSE

Thanks to scot3818, Kmartin, and all others who posted this data. I just got my MP3 player working on my '06 Tribeca.

A few things to clarify, I was a bit confused on how to enable the RSE without hooking up a power/ground to my MP3 player.

KMartin's post was a bit confusing as it kept referencing pin numbers on that connector and I don't know what pin is pin1 vs. pin16. So this is what I did to enable the RSE without having a power/ground connection to the MP3 player.

Just hook up the left, right and ground to the stereo as in scot3813's PDF File. Then, I just added another ground wire from the back of the stereo (where I attached the MP3 player's cable ground) to the chassis of the radio. Thats it. Just one extra wire. Works great. When I want CD, just press the CD button on the radio, AM press AM. MP3, press RSE. Easy.


So now that i've got this all hooked up, the audio out of my MP3 player is not as loud as the AM/FM Radio. I have the output volume of the MP3 player max'd. But its not as loud at the same radio volume as the AM/FM or CD modes.

Does anyone know of a volume booster that I can put inline with my MP3 player?

Thanks,

JB

The DVD player's volume is also lower than the stock radio/CD, so it must have something to do with the head unit itself.

Does anyone know if there is a way to tap the aux-in with a 2-channel switch so both rear-DVD and and aux jack can be routed to the same button and be selectable by said switch?

You could get a Fiio E3 line booster from Ebay for $6.99 + $4.99 shipping. I hear reports that it sounds decent. Stay away from the Radioshack boostaroo clone. All the ones I know for a fact are decent are over $60, so I wont post them unless I see a reply from you wanting more info. Heck, I have several portable headphone amps that cost $450-500, but that's another story.

Sorry for bumping this old thread, but does anyone still have any of the pictures or the power point presentation that was put together for this. Please let me know as I would like to do this with my wife's Tribeca.

Thanks!

Yeah, I think I could use a copy of the pdf or powerpoint presentation, as I'm ready to do the mod too. My mail is larryganz at hotmail (dot) com if that helps.

Thanks!

This wonderful Powerpoint document (complete with pictures!) was compiled by "slackr"on the NASIOC forum at:
http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show...=896215&page=4

I did add some info about the ground wiring instructions for permanently activating the RSE button (near the end of the document). Although I am not a professional technician nor an electrician, feel free to contact me with any questions, or refer to the NASIOC forum directly. My setup has worked perfectly so far since 2-2-07.

FYI: viewing the radio connector from the back of the unit, pin 16 is the LOWER LEFT, followed to the right by 15, 14 and then 13.

Nice work Karen, but I want to clarify my recommendations about the grounds. Pin 13 is the RSE enable, which should be wired directly to a ground, one of the nearby screws should do. Pin 14 is the signal ground for the AUX input, which should be kept separate from the vehicle ground and pin 13 for best results.

If someone can post some clear, close-up pictures of connector "i26" (the 15 pin connector that you're adding the aux wires to), I may be able to get the correct pins to snap into the plug. Perhaps even the shells to make a plug-and-play insert harness. Either way, much cleaner than the "shove wires into the holes" method

I need to see the pins side of both plug and socket. The top, bottom, and either left or right side of the car's harness plug would also be helpful.

I attached a copy of that PDF to my post on SB9T here. However, the information in that guide is now obsolete -- read my post for details.

So please register on that forum (if you haven't already) and continue the discussion there.
