I've got a conceptual problem. I've ordered a Pioneer AppRadio 3 head unit and the Connects2 cable set with fascia and the patch cable. They haven't arrived yet, but I'm already breaking my head on how to connect these things.
Please excuse the ignorance, this is the first radio I'll be installing (I have previously installed an mp3 adapter, and an internal bluetooth module, I'm also decent with a soldering iron so not really affraid, just a bit confused)
For the AppRadio - I expect to get with it the powercable which most likely will be a plug on one end with stripped cables on the other end for power, ground, speakers etc., am I right here?
Then there is the Connects set, which will connect with the existing plugs on the Civic side, but how do I connect the stripped power/speaker cables with the rest of this hairball?
Do I need another adapter in between, perhaps an extra socket that I don't know about? Or am I supposed to cut off one of the existing stereo plugs, then strip and splice the cables?
I've looked through the double din topics but I'm affraid I'm no wiser.
