    Head unit to match steering wheel controls and cd changer?

    I'm looking to buy a new HU to upgrade my the stock one in my grand cherokee. i'm getting it so i can level out my sounds between my sub and speakers, and apparently i've heard it'll make things louder and sound better. I need one that will work with my steering wheel controls and my 10 disc changer in the back.

    a screen would work, or just a reg HU.

    any info? thanks=]

    i've heard you can buy an adapter for it, but buying a HU that just hooked right up would be a lot better. i hope someone can help

    Yeah you can add the Peripheralelectronics Peswix
    I put the RI in the dome light.. you can extend the wires using 16/4 Home audio cable
    you can get that at any home audio shop or maybe Home Depot ot Radio Shack

    Use the Remote that comes with your HU to program it..
    I think it can only Hold 5 steps..
    Vol. Up & Down = 2
    Source = 1
    Track Skip Foward & Back = 2
    Thats about it..
    Peace & Good Luck

    If you want to keep the steering wheel controls, then look at PAC's website or even peripheral electronics. They both make universal and brand specific interfaces. As far as the changer, if it is factory, then there's no way you can keep it with an aftermarket HU. Besides, factory *****.

    And if you don't see what you need, call them. They are very helpful and will tell you what you need to accomplish your goal.



    Bluto's right. Psychotic, but absolutely right. We gotta take these bastards. Now we could do it with conventional weapons that could take years and cost millions of lives. No, I think we have to go all out. I think that this situation absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody's part.

    Scroll down to Stereo section.


    It explains every aspect of what you can do.



    I just installed mine yesterday and it works great. Much much easier than I thought it was going to be.
