Post Radio Harness, LOC, & Door wiring

Now, Iíll show you the way I wired up the back of the radio using the purchased wire harnesses/connectors. Then moving down the line to the line out converter and door wiring.

Ahh, the radio harness. The question of so many inquisitive minds. Hereís how I did mine:

The Line Out Converter. This takes line level (which is the signal that comes direct from the head unit) and converts it to low level, aka RCA/patch cable.

Routing of the patch cable and amp remote turn on lead/wire.

I started with wiring at the doors first. Then routing towards the amp.

Iíll show the driverís door, since itís the most difficult one to do.

Once you get both front doors complete, wiring installed, you can reassembly the door panels. The speakers have to go on last anyways. Do the door wiring for the other doors before proceeding.
