    Re: Do you have to buy a new wiring harness when you replace your stock h/u?

    When I replaced my hu, I did not HAVE to but a wiring harness, but chose to anyway. I did this for the simple reason of not having to cut up the stock harness so that if I decide to sell my car one day, I can plug the stock hu straight into the wiring harness and be good to go.

    Re: Do you have to buy a new wiring harness when you replace your stock h/u?

    That looks almost like my hu. Do you currently have RCA cables? Are you running sub stage only? If so, you will only need one set of RCA's to run from the hu to your amp, and the amp wiring(batt to amp, amp to ground).

    Re: Do you have to buy a new wiring harness when you replace your stock h/u?

    If you have the RCA's running from your hu to your amp and power + remote to your amp, all that is left is just hooking your sub up to your amp. Not sure if you have a wiring kit for your amp or not, but make sure you have your power wire from the battery fused.

    Re: Do you have to buy a new wiring harness when you replace your stock h/u?

    for your car and knowledge, yes get a wiring harness

    it can be done without one but you have to do some extra things, just buy the harness so you can keep the chime accessory
