If the radio is a different brand than what you have now, pay attention to the presence of the adapter included with the connector of the head unit to a standard ISO connector – two wide, two row contact, on the radio, the connectors may be different, depending on the manufacturer (SONY, Kenwood, etc.). Check with the seller, you do not need any additional adapters, telling him the make, model and year of your car, it is in particular relate to the cars of foreign production.

Broad bought, you can proceed to replace. Removal and installation performed when the ignition is off. To remove from the slot the old radio with a special key that came with radio when purchased. The keys to the new radio may not fit, so remember, where is the box or documentation for the old reciever, the keys are likely there. Before you insert the key remove the outer frame and the front panel of the radio. Inserting keys on the side of the head unit to full-length pull, slightly reducing the keys to each other, with the keys out the radio.
Removing the radio from the frame keys
Here you go. Not in a hurry to disconnect the wire, they can fall over the center panel, pull them out with a rubber band or a long wire which will stay outside, they can now disconnect. Remember which wire to which connector was connected to the radio. Now remove from the slot frame for installation of a radio, it can be just pressed petals that need to bend or screwed with bolts or screws (they need to be carefully Unscrew).
Connect - turn off the radio
Prepare the new radio, remove the cover frame and connect the adaptor to ISO connector. Skipping into the frame from the vehicle connecting wire, install it in the socket for radio, securing the same. Check hand the reliability of the installation frame. Now you can start attaching the harness to the radio. Connect ISO connector, antenna wire, additional wire, if any. Connectors for antenna standard and a number have a corresponding icon, as well as other connectors are not included in the ISO connector.
Install the frame into the slot
After all the wires attached, you need to check the connection. Attach the faceplate to the unit, and insert it into the slot until the middle of the body. Turn on the radio, if the backlight lights up, it means the power to the radio goes. Turn on radio and tune to any station after the beginning of broadcast radio, listen to each speaker separately, they all should work. The receiving radio also means that the antenna is intact and connected correctly. Then test the radio to play audio from disk, and plasmocytes if there is a USB connector. Now unplug the radio, remove the front panel and force the two hands attached to the sides of the front part to the back of the radio until it clicks into the frame.

Advice 2 : How to connect speakers to receiver

To connect the speakers to the new receiver, no need to go to the car wash and spend a rather big amount of money. If you know anything about electrics,you can do it yourself.
How to connect speakers to receiver
You will need
  • To connect front speakers to the radio you will need 6 feet of flexible speaker cable 2x0,75 mm 2 rubber corrugations are 14mm in diameter with a rotation of the outputs by 90 degrees. Without turns, but then it will be necessary to carefully wrap the wires with insulation tape so they do not fray about the edges of the holes that you drill in the front doors, as the manufacturer is not provided in the doors, no wiring.
  • To connect the rear speakers, you will need 11 metres of speaker wire 2x0,75mm. Here can be applied not very flexible cable, suitable even for the ordinary, for home electrics brand of PVA. These wires will lie still during the entire period of operation, so they were not in danger.
In the front door directly under the top hinge closer to the outer skin, make a hole with a diameter of 13mm. The second hole should be drilled at 100mm below when you open the door the wire was turned, not bent over. Then it will last a long time. Try how to house the wire in the door and mark with a marker the area of the wire passing through the corrugation, with a small margin.
At the point of exit from the body and the entrance of the door numatyta 5 layers of adhesive tape.
Wear corrugation and with the help of thin steel wire, tighten the wire in the door. Attention! In order not to damage the insulation necessary uglenite wire to make it easier went. Part of the wire that goes inside the body, cannot be laid under carpets – where the wire can easily be damaged, it must be tied with tape to the total transaction.
Output wire to the location where it will be installed radio. Leave a margin of 30...40 cm, for easy connection (if you need to remove the radio and put the other) and do the same work with the second front door.
The wiring for the rear speakers need to make one Board machine, for example, on the left, driver side. You should always strive to gather the wires in a harness.
Fold the wire in half penalty. One of the ends pull the meter and as such smithite the wires with insulation tape. Place bend cut pliers.
Now I have to put the resulting bundle of wires in the car. To lay better along the sill. For greater reliability, the section of harness that passes across the floor, can be tightened in plastic corrugation for electrical cables. Part of the harness that passes directly over the rear parcel shelf can be mounted with plastic clips.
The section of the harness at the front of the car also lift off the floor and attach with tape to the main wiring, and then output to the same place already plumbed for front speakers. Then to not look for where a wire is, the better their mark immediately. For example, "front right" or abbreviated English FR. The rest: front left FL, rear right RR, rear left - RL. Repeat with the rest of the acoustic wires the same. After that, if wires are the same color with or without stripes along the veins, and not in each pair to distinguish between conventional plus and minus, it is necessary to mark the negative lead.
When the wires are labeled, check the tester for short circuit between cores and in the absence thereof, they can be plugged in to the connector to put the radio in place.
Then check the speakers on compliance of the nominal resistance. Modern stereos to fit speakers with a coil resistance of 4 Ohms. If the device shows a resistance of 3.2-3.6 Ohm, can set up speakers in the prepared location and connect them to the speaker wiring. The main thing - not to reverse the polarity, otherwise the bass will not be enough. Please note that the speaker terminal is not in contact with metal parts of the machine.
When everything is connected, test the system.

Advice 3 : How to connect the radio to the computer

The sound quality of car radio can outrun many modern stereos, even the most common, inexpensive and not very well-known manufacturer. With its help, you can significantly improve your home entertainment system.
How to connect the radio to the computer
You will need
  • - the unit from the system unit of the computer;
  • modern ATX power supply;
  • - speakers
  • pin;
  • - soldering iron.
Prepare the connection of the receiver to the PC. Use to provide power to the radio unit from the system unit of a computer. To do this, cut a standard Din connector, which is designed to connect to the car, splice the wires to connect them to new contacts. Prepare the wires to connect the power wire to the radio and to connect the system to the acoustics.
Take a modern ATX power supply, with a capacity of 300-350 watts, its current on +12 In should be not less than twelve amps. Current on +5 and the rest does not matter. For example, you can take the unit InWin brand to connect the radio to the PC. These units are reliable and quality. In them the value of the current line +12 V – 18 amps.
Use to connect the receiver to the computer unit connector that is used to attach hard drives. Cut off the connector, solder it to the contacts of the car, later you can come up with an adapter so that the unit can be used in the computer.
Make a speaker from a car stereo, then purchase any speakers, the main thing, not heavy. Next, take a box that you insert the speakers. Better to make it from wood, saw saw hole for the speaker and cover with paint. Or get a cardboard box and cut a hole in it.
Install it in the radio. Below the PSU run without a motherboard, use the biggest plug. Lock the earth and green touch, and then the unit will start and apply mains voltage to all the wires.
To include these contacts in the future, close them with bent pins. Now solder the leads and prepare the adapter to connect the radio to the PC. Connect the adapter and wires, fasten the unit in the column and reconnect all connections.
