    New head deck install help

    Hi guys,

    I'm replacing the stock head deck (Clarion drx6275gv) in my 1999 Subaru Legacy with a sony gt45u. However, I've encountered a problem in that I've got 2 unidentified cables that are directly attached to the clarion unit. I also can't seem to find the antenna plug to go into the sony unit. (perhaps the unidentified white/red cables are the antenna? why would there be two?). There's also an orange cable with the rest of the cables that I can't seem to ID.

    I've taken some photos.

    The clarion unit: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/75832086/ca...125_174252.jpg
    Back of the clarion: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/75832086/ca...125_174119.jpg
    The two unidentified cables that are directly attached to the clarion unit: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/75832086/ca...125_174137.jpg
    The other cables that go to the clarion unit. (what's the orange one for?) https://dl.dropbox.com/u/75832086/ca...125_174216.jpg

    any idea what the red/white cables are??

    Apologies if this has been asked before, I've trolled trawling on the internet for the past few hours but I can't find anything.

    Cheers

    Most aftermarket headunits have the wires labeled. My pioneer had the orange wire labeled as dimmer. A haynes manual may have the wiring diagram for your radio

    look and see how the old one was set up the red and white wires could possible be your antenna however this is highly unlikely because red is usually power from the positive side
