These are the 6x9's that are going in. http://au.kenwood.co...kers/KFC-M6935A

The whole point of this thread is to help people (as in me) install sound systems and not for people to write what they have.
I actual dont know anything about sound systems. So writing down what you have aint helping.

well... it's a bit of both. knowing what is most popular choice helps you get the best.

Anyway, it's simple. It seems hard to start with, but once youo sit down and do it, it becomes so easy and clear. So where about's are you? If your brissy, i'm happy to come and show you how to wire up your HU, and then some simple tricks of hiding cables without tearing up much carpet.



[whoops, just noticed Adelaide.] Well... I'll rip out my HU tomorrow, and take some pics of the wiring. Generally it's all the same,

Red= Positive power
Black = Ground
Yellow = Negetive [I think, or it's black, ubt there are one of each on my loom]
Blue (with white stripe) = Amp power on
Orange (with white stripe) = Illumi (Steering wheel buttons)
blue (no stripe) = Antenna Control (Change to tuner and Antenna goes up!)
beige and pink = steering control

Speaker keep in mind are two wires per speaker and one with stripe is positive
grey = front right
White = Front left
Purple = rear right
green = Rear left


ok, hope fully that helps out. Keep in mind you must disconnect the battery fully not just negative to install the head unit. It's pretty simple once you do it, and make sure all your soldering/crimping points are covered with electrical tape or heatshrink as if you don't, then I don't want to hear about a gazelle burning down!


Best of luck

Yellow is usually connected to accessories power, so you dont lose your settings like time, radio station memory, etc. when you turn off the car. I've only had experience in installing Pioneer HU's tho...

^^ Your correct sir! I checked my manual, it is accessories, I couldn't remember and thought i was strange the way my Loom was that I had spare. So black is Ground/Nagative. There will be a black wire in there already,So just connect it to that. Doesn't really matter. Black is generally either, but my Sub came with a brown wire for ground. :P

i'm fairly sure that "orange with white stripe" is for the illumination of the player when the dash lights up (parkers on)
not "steering controls" as written above

could be wrong though...

The S12's speaker wiring is black.

Black is negative, Black with white trace is positive.

So, my suggestion is to crimp an eye terminal onto the black ground wire from the new head unit's wiring, and ground it straight to the body on the car. This eliminates grounding it to a speaker wire.

Purple is accessories/igniton 12V
Red/Green is constant/battery 12V
Red/White is illumination

If you have a coupe, and wish to keep the power antenna, you can remove the switch from the S12's head unit, and incorporate that into your blanking panels around your new head unit. The wiring remains the same.

im usually naked anywayclothes are for rich ppl


Can do cash jobs!

I can even come to you!

My coupe's electric antenna is still there. just incorporated the up down buttons into the new surround. Cables not very long so putting it in and out is a little fiddly/annoying.
