    Question The Sound System

    Evening, I think ill ask rather than just use trial and error tomorrow lol

    ive got a poineer double din headunit to put in the SRi tomorrow, 2k6 version.

    So, ive got:
    -the unit,
    -the connects 2 quad 40 > ISO wireing loom
    -the Steering wheel control loom

    Now what i woud like to know is...
    From the HU backwards...
    1) Will i need to swap the Red and Yellow power wires? so red goes to yellow and yellow to red?
    2) Ive got a blue/white remote wire coming from the HU... that will be going to an amp..but i have a 2nd bullet connector that i have the option to connect together so it connects to the cars loom... to power an external ariel/antenna power booster supply... will i need to connect that? it turns into a solid blue wire when it gets to the quad 40 setup.
    3) From the Quad 40 setup... ive got a White 'Park' wire with a bullet connector, Green 'Speed' wire and an Orange 'Reverse' wire (no bullets on the ends, just wires).... will it be easy enough to see where these go??
    4) Will i need to Buy a Femal Fakra > Din ariel connection or a Male Fakra > Din?
    5) Will i need to buy the little boosted fak>din ariel... http://www.caraudiodirect.co.uk/fakra-active-aerial-adaptor-p-5632.html ...and NOT connect question 2 to the Quad 40 loom but instead connect it to the blue wire on the ariel... OR ...buy a simple non boosted Fakra > Din ariel... http://www.caraudiodirect.co.uk/male...tor-p-217.html and leave the blue/white connected to the Quad 40 end?? as if the booster system is somewhere else in the car.

    Or will it be a see what i need to do tomorrow by trial and error lol.
    Thanking you
    Dave V.

    Thanks for the help

    ANSWERS:

    1) NO. Red to Red. Yellow To Yellow.
    2) Doesnt matter. The Quad 40 car loom doesnt have a wire coming out of the pin that the blue/white wire went to.
    3) Yes its easy to see.... they didnt go anywhere. so i just taped them up.
    4) Didnt pay much attention as the Fakra packs seemed to just connect to what i had in the car.
    5) Buy the amplified one, and the blue wire goes to the Remote wire, that the amp also connects to. so theres two things coming from the Remote wire.


    Job Done.
