Default Pioneer AVH-X5600BHS Install 2014 Impreza

Hello everyone, new to the forum and new impreza owner.


I just purchased a 2014 Impreza Sport Premium and traded in my 2011 Jeep Patriot (totally happy to be rid of that box).

Just some background. Went from having the factory indash touchscreen w/nav in the Patriot and the Boston acustic sound system w/sub to having the base rade with SWC and Bluetooth in the Soobie. I wanted Sirius (I had it in my Jeep, had it before the Jeep too, and I have a long drive to work) and didnt want to have to upgrade to the factory Nav in the Limited trim to get it.


So I ordered a Pioneer AVH-X5600BHS. This has all the features I was looking for in a head unit (Sat Nav, Satelite radio, HD radio, MirroLink, Bluetooth, DVD, USB ports, 4V preamp, etc). I also ordered the Axxcess ASWC-1 SWC module to wire in.


My question is, has one one wired a head unit similar to this? Like its predecessor AVH-x5500BHS or similar head units? I have done quite a bit of searching on this forum and have been looking at other members installs. Seems for the most part straight forward. I have done head unit/speaker/ and sub installs in previous vehicles, but never one with the SWC.

I have been to SVXdc's site and feel that I understand the wiring. The headunit, ordered form SonicElectronix's came with a metra 70-7552 wiring harness for free. I do understand that this harness is a 20-pin harness, but does not have the extra three wires for the SWC?

I tried to contact SVXdc via email from his website a couple of days ago, to order one of his 20-pin foward harnesses, but I have not got a response. I see he is still active on the forum. Does he normally take some time to respond?

Thankd all reply's. Ill be doing an install thread with lots of pictures and a write up once I am finished.

I just had a Pioneer x5500 installed yesterday in my 2014 wrx. I bought it from another member here which already had the harness and SWC with the stereo itself. I could not be happier. I also had a 5 channel Hertz amp and 2 8in Hertz subs installed same time ( I'm not good with installing the soundsystems). By just giving the stock speakers some power they sound a million times better, the little subs rock and all my SWC controls work. Not sure if this helps but don't hesitate to do yours if your good with all that wiring. I am very satisfied on how mine sounds now.

Also having this issue, I sent him an email last week about ordering the harness and AXXESS module but have yet to get a response. Headunit came in yesterday but I'm stuck waiting for wiring, hoping to hear from him in the next day or two

Ya, he replied to me in another thread and said who is ever does the work is backed up. He said that If you go a few days without a response to email him again because the email may have went to the spam folder. This was his reply.

SVXdc responded pretty quick to me about 3 weeks ago and I had my things shipped off within 24 hours after I sent payment.

You don't need his hardness to make everything work from what I understand, it just makes things easier and you don't have to tap into the wiring in the car.

Ya, I know that its not 100% necessary to do it. Id jsut like to have the harness with the extra 3 wires so i dont have to cut into the factory harness.

He responded to my post on here, but I'm gonna have to send an email to him again. The message may have got booted to his spam box.

SVXdc has been busy lately. He'll get to you though. You don't need his 20 pin adaptor, but like others have said, you'll need to tap into the wires yourself. I just installed the 4600 myself. The ASWC-1 needed to be reset for it to work. Other than that, it was pretty straight forward. It reminded me how much i hate soldering though

Yeah I'm aware it's not really required for the install, but I really don't want to tap into the harness. I'll shoot him another email in case it did go to spam and hopefully hear from him soon!
