Introduction: Incorporating RCAs to a regular Car unit that is head
If you would like upgrade your audio system in your car or truck by the addition of a sub woofer or speakers running on an auxiliary amplifier and never have to get a unique head unit then ideally this would allow you to 🙂
I made the decision to help keep my standard mind product it is a factory upgraded unit anyway and i find it gives pretty good audio quality, it works with the steering wheel controls and has bluetooth and aux-in, so an after-market unit wouldn’t offer a substantial upgrade because it looks well in the car, is less likely to attract thieves than a shiny after-market unit and.
Factory mind devices seldom have RCA or “Low line” outputs which your amplifier shall requirement for it’s input sign. A “Low line converter” is a computer device that may piggy right right straight back your presenter outputs from your own mind product and convert them to Low Line RCA outputs for the amplifier
The converter I purchased also provides you with a “remote cable” production which informs your Amp once the automobile is on so that it does not strain your battery pack, in the event that you obtain a converter without this method you can easily simply get in on the remote cable towards the Acc circuit of one’s automobile, or the 12V circuit having a switch (you has to consider to make it well though or your amp will strain your battery pack)
The methods i utilized will need a knowledge of car/car stereo electrics therefore be careful so just as not to ever harm your vehicle or your self 🙂

Step one: Bits and Tools. Bits you will need:
Minimal Line Converter, I got mine on Ebay here for ВЈ6.00Stereo Secrets to eliminate your mind product, you might not require these with respect to the manufacturer and fitting key in your carMultimeter Wire Cutters Pliers Sharp knife or wire strippers TorchElectrical tape or heatshrink tubingWire to increase the piggyback cables regarding the converter (i utilized around 20 AWG)Soldering iron to solder expansion cable if neededScotch Blocks i wound up utilizing 6Cable ties maybe maybe not crucial but handy for keeping wiring neat
