I had some questions on my wiring harness on my 02 WRX. I bought an after market HU and used the wiring adapter and soldered it all correctly it works fine. I wanted to add the stock subwoofer by splicing the wires from the 4 pin connector into the 8 pin main like I have seen other people do. Unfortunately I am a little confused because my wire colors are a little different from what I have seen.



I have the purple wire but then I have a yellow.red wire and 2 black wires. The black wire does not loop either like the grey wire would. I looked a little closer at the wire cluster and I found the orange purple but I have no idea what it is doing.





The wires off to the right of the pic near the pink fuse tube are all of the wires that are coming out of the connector plugged into the sub. Any information that could help me figure out what is going on in there.

Which wire could I tap into for the remote lead of the amp?

This is a 2012 subaru impreza 2.0 base model, aftermarket amp and sub, high level input converter.

thanks

EDIT:
the wiring i have is
LR+ red/black
LR- white/red
RR+ red/white
RR- gray/green

plus the remote lead to yellow/black

The info Ihad seems incorrect.
On the ae 6420 pin out page (cant link not enough posts)
the positives and negatives are reversed from what I have, but the diagram is listed as 2008-2011....?
Can anyone confirm the actual correct wires?
Thanks again
I tapped into a switched port in the fuse panel for amp turn on.

could you tell me how I could find this wire?

I changed the remote lead to the switched12v wire on the radio wiring harness, but a few nights ago I found my amp was still on with the car and radio off.
The rearview compass and clock were also on.
I disconnected the remote lead on the amp side and it was still on until I disconnected it from the battery.
After that the clock and compass was back to normal.

Default pioneer 4000NEX install replacing '09 forester navi HU

Hi all, first time poster here. Been lurking and reading and searching, but still have a few questions that I hope someone can help me with. If it's somewhere in this thread and I've missed it, I apologize in advance...

Vitals:
2009 Forester XT with navi HU. It has both the 14-pin and 24-pin harnesses. I have the factory OEM sub installed under the driver side seat.

I am going to install a Pioneer 4000NEX and have questions about how to wire the sub and also how to wire the Aux input (the audio L and R from the center console).

Based on SVXdc's very helpful post #11 in the Stock HU pinout information thread, I understand the pinouts that are coming out of the 24-pin harness. But not exactly sure how to solder onto the various connections needed for the NEX4000.

The NEX4000 does have RCA outputs for the subwoofer that lead to a power amp, but I don't think I can use those, can I? In any case, pins 11, 12, 23, and 24 are for the subwoofer.
11 is ground,
12 is for + polarity,
23 is for Amp on, and
24 is for inverted polarity.

Do these wires splice into the speaker harness wires, or can I use the RCA outputs from the NEX4000 HU and connect to the respective pinouts?

SECOND QUESTION:

I want to connect the AUX and Video inputs from the center console to the A/V inputs on the NEX4000. I will have to install RCA connectors onto the wires from the harness so they can be plugged in to the NEX4000. On the 24-pin harness pins 8 and 20 are video ground and input, respectively. I understand how to attach an RCA plug to those for the video. For the audio, pinouts:

9 is AUX input enable
10 is AUX input left.
21 is AUX input ground
22 is AUX input right.

Usually, the L and R RCA plugs for audio have a signal and a ground. Do I need to share the ground with both of the L and R channels? Where does pinout 9 connect to, which is the AUX input enable?

I cannot seem to find a 24-pin harness anywhere. It seems that I will have to cut into the factory wires in order to utilize the subwoofer, AUX, steering wheel and parking break functions. I have already contacted SVXdc and am waiting to hear from him to see if he has any 24-pin harness adapters, but I did not see any on his site. Does anyone know if it's possible to get generic 24 pin connectors anywhere? My internet search has come up with blanks.

Sorry for the lengthy post. Hoping to install everything sometime next week after all the parts come in...thanks in advance for reading this far. Cheers.

I too have emailed you SVXdc for a harness. No reply. It says on his profile he has not been active for several months. Does anyone know if he is still in the biz or where I can source a 24 pin plug for the factory nav besides through him?

Thanks

Anyone ever try and put an under seat sub in a 2012+ Impreza? Possible? Fits? Fabrication? I don't want to use the kicker because it takes away precious cargo space....

Thanks
I sent him a request two weeks ago for a 20 pin combo harness. I received a response after about 5 days. I ordered the harness and received it this week. So, yes, he's still in the business.

Hey I'm sure there is a thread around here somewhere (point me in that directions if so please) that has audio info for '12+ non STi/WRX Imprezas.

I would like to know what the best set up, speakers, would be if I want to just keep the stock HU. Are the Kickers the best quality option to stick with the HU or are there others out there that are better?

I'm not looking for ground breaking sound, just to maximize the potential of the stock HU I have. No amps or subs... at least not for a few years

Here are some details:
-2014 2.0 Subaru Impreza Premium 4-door sedan
-Stock system currently so 6-speaker options
-I listen to Hip hop, and anything good iTunes radio is pumping out
-I'll be putting the speakers in and I've never done it before
-Since I'm working with a stock system and just upgrading from there I don't plan on spending a lot of money so maybe under $300?

Any info or guidance to different threads will be appreciated thanks!

Leapyr,

Did you do the hidden menu tricks?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AnYFs6OpGGs

Try those first before you change out speakers.

Most people are satisfied after doing that.

Just remember that door speakers, even high end after market ones are not made for bass. Considering you like to listen to hip hop and rap, you will really want to get a sub if your looking to get that bass.

Give it a few days and listen to it with those adjustments done, and then we can talk a little more about picking out speakers, budget, etc. If you still are looking to make a change.

Making an adapter harness is fairly easy too -- wire together a 14-pin "forward" (the type you would normally use to install an aftermarket HU in your 2002) with a 20-pin reverse (which plugs into the 2008-up OEM HU). I have both -- see info in my profile (click on my username).
Thanks for the info this was a big help! I did this recently and it works well; HD radio and 6-cd changer. I just grounded the extra wires from the 08 harness and connected the 03 antenae power to 08 amp power.

Only problem is I cut too much of the bezel and have a gap to fill. I'll probably use carbon fiber tape or something.

I have a 2005 Subaru Forester XT Premium with the factory 6 disc changer (no aux in) with door tweeters and rear sub. I would like to upgrade the radio to something more modern like the Jensen VX7020. The included wiring harness from Crutchfield (Metra 70-8901) is 4 channel only (front L/R and rear L/R), so I have a few questions:

1. Are the door tweeters just wired in with the front speakers so nothing extra is needed?

2. My understanding is that the factory subwoofer will be lost since the factory unit has a built-in amp for it. I've seen reference that it's possible to add a mini amp and retain the factory "subwoofer," but am not sure exactly what wiring harness, amp, etc. is needed. Any help with this would be very much appreciated.

Correct. See my 'Stock HU info' thread:

Your sub connects to your OEM HU via a proprietary 8-pin plug. I can supply a harness to fit the factory plug. Contact me via e-mail for details (see ae64.com). But your Forester's rear "sub" is more of a 6x9 woofer. I don't think it's worth the effort to retain it. Better to replace it with a real powered sub, and run that from your new HU's line-level sub output. Then you'll be able to adjust the sub volume independently from the HU's menus.

Hey Hey!

I have a 2010 Forester, with the oem nav. Sold the nav, picked up an appradio 3.

svxdc, I bought my wiring harness from you last year when I had installed the appradio. It worked great!

I do like the new Fujitsu OEM Nav that is in the 2014 Subaru Lineup, and wonder if it will plug and play into my OEM Nav Wiring Harness, and if it will fit with the OEM Bezel.

Thank you in advance!

Does anyone know which pin in the back of the HU is for the bluetooth mic? I have a 2010 leggy, premium audio, non-nav. I'm not sure if I'm asking the right question in the search but I can't seem to find the answer.

I did the (foreign market) Forester 4.3" lcd radio swap in my WRX and I was wondering, is something similar available for the Outback/Legacy?

My Girlfriend has a 2010 Outback with the PE645U1 CD Player and I was hoping I could swap in the Harmon Kardon PE658U1? (building an adapter harness would work i'm assuming?)

Does the HK one have an internal amp? the wiring harness hookups on the backs of the two are different...

What's in there now (ebay link)


What i'd like to swap in (ebay link)

does anyone know the power output of a 99 OB's single CD/tape/weatherband HU?
model number: 86201AC430


I think it's from an OB limited, which possibly had the 8-speaker audio upgrade...
possibly just 80W, but based on sound quality (when compared to another Suby 80W HU and using the same speakers), I suspect it ight be a little more.

thanks

Just to confirm-on a 2015 WRX Non Navi, I am trying to install a Line out to install an amp/sub.

Can't I just get Metra Part #71-7552 (Male harness to OEM radio) and also a #70-7552 (Female harness to OEM Harness) and essentially make my own connector like the t harness?
