HU head unit after market system question
i cant find the forum for the electrical questions. sorry

im buying a 2012 wrx sedan, now with the stock HU does it have a/v outputs on the back? or do i need an after market HU? and where can i find the DIY for taking out the HU etc..

and where can i find all the harnesses i will need for an after market HU and putting my door speakers on an amp

I just finished installing an Kenwood dnx5120 in my 2013. I am pretty sure that there aren't any outputs in the back of the stock unit but I can check it later. Best thing you can do is buy an aftermarket head unit first bc the speakers aren't terrible they r just underpowered. As far as the install it is super simple, either use a small flat head screw driver or your fingernail and pull off the dash trim starting at the bottom and working up. There are 4 screws that hold the stock unit in. Once those r removed unclip the harnesses and wire the harness adapter to the new unit. Attach new head unit to the new dash kit and put it back together. It gets a little more complicated if u want to keep the steering wheel controls and Bluetooth. I bought everything from best products and best prices.

awsome thanks for the reply.. just to make sure can u post the links for the 2012 wrx sedan harnesses i need.

dirtydeeds02 12-10-2012 10:15 AM

Im pretty sure if you are buying your head unit soon or at least in December you get the wire harness for free. I just bought a new one last week and I got the installing kit and wire harness for free. Cant go wrong with crutchfield.

Those links were both the same. No difference between those two harnesses

Well one when clicked options it asked for navigation or non navigation, I'm assuming navigation harness haha.

dirtydeeds02 12-17-2012 04:33 AM

That depends on if your
stock unit has navigation or not.

ghost911 12-17-2012 05:26 PM

I have the stock radio unit in no navigation , and putting in my pioneer navigation in. So go with the with navigation harness?

dirtydeeds02 12-17-2012 10:12 PM

Negative. Non navigation harness is what u need
