reception is not very good. might have somthing to do with the fact that the car does not have an external antenna, but have heard others with different cars with the same complaint...

02 has the A-pillar antenna, right? That's what I have on my 03. They switched to an in-glass antenna for 04.

Only the 04 needs antenna power.

So, you connected to the A-pillar antenna in the 02 and the reception is still bad?

If you are talking about the Manual Extending Antenna, I don't have one. My car is a 2002 Euro Spec STi (GDB) and has a 'concealed' antenna which I assume is in the Windshield. I've simply hooked up the Head Unit to the existing Antenna socket what plugged into the original Head Unit. ????

then yes, you probably have an antenna power wire ... try hooking it up to your ignition wire (so it is powered whenever you turn on the car)

Hey, got any pics of your car? I agree with Extraze, you probably need to hook up the power antenna lead.

i have installed that head unit in alot of 350z's at work and the radio is set up for deversity antenna which means it has 2 inputs, the normal one that are in all cars and then a smaller one...Only import cars here in the usa so far that i worked on that have these 2 antenna leads are toyota and nissan...this could be the problem with reciption and also in japan they use a diffrent tunning frequency thatn we do......i think theres start a 69 and go up to 90 and the use even numbers as we use odd numbers...

i hope this helps....

I think the Melting-pot site offers to modify the tuner to work in the U.S.(not sure about what they do for the antenna).

There's usually two ranges you pick from. They can't convert the japan-spec radios to cover the full FM range that is offered here. It's a little short. So you have to choose to start from the 88.3(I think?) and go just shy of the top of the dial or start a little higher and hit higher up...possibly the top of the dial. I can't remember the specifics, but many web sites describe what's involved with this.

Also, from what I see on that Sony, they only have two pre-amps out. They show three RCA receptors on the rear, but I believe one is the input for the UniLink. I've seen some sites say a front and rear pre-out plus a sub, but others just say Line Out x2.

Charge, it is Front and Rear Pre-Outs and 1 Sub...one nice feature if you don't want to spend too much on Cross-Overs is that there is built-in independent Cross-Overs for Front / Rear / Sub.
