I am writing this not only to get some questions answered, but also, as a guide as I install my components. I have read a few dozen threads but none have answered my question. First and foremost, the hardware:
I understand how to remove all the components, and the actual installation isnt an issue, however, Im not the super proficient electricians that some of you guys are, so how difficult is it to pair the Wiring supplied by the Kenwood to the PAC replacement wiring harness? I have read its fairly straight forward; Im not adding the Nav feature right now, but I am connecting Sirius Satelite radio.
The PAC unit also supplies the 5V regulators, so you wont have to wire these in as shown in the link you posted. They are required if you use aftermarket harnesses and don't use the PAC unit. The only modification to the pac wiring kit is splicing in the 1 Amp diode per my write-up.
Thanks very much. I had been digging through anything that came up in a search for PAC, Wiring, Shaker, Aftermarket HU, etc. I glanced over the link, it seems fairly straight forward...am I correct in that assumption? Im no wiring guru....Im still fairly new to that stuff.
