All about car stereo wiring

Today's video gives an overview of determining wiring and matching wiring when replacing your car stereo system.

Recently I've been using this video blog to cover topics related to car audio, and on Thursday I presented a video that touched upon the importance of wiring in the implementation of any car stereo system. In today's video we get a broad overview of wiring your car stereo head unit for use in a new car audio system.

There are certain considerations involved in determining the wiring of your car stereo, and this video covers several of them. Among the considerations covered here are head unit involved, options (iPods, satellite, Bluetooth), making sure your aftermarket harness can fit the factory wiring, determining wire gauge for your amplifier, and the pros and cons of different wiring makes and gauges for your system.
