For those who want pics of the harness and a readout on the harness so you can tap in the converter, send me an email [email protected]

Well, i am right now loading all the pictures, sorting them, and will post what i did with my install.


EDIT: i think i will crash early tonight, and post everything tomorrow, exhausted, cause i think my amp is dead, or something isn't grounded properly, *sobs*

Ok, i did it =D

And you really should read the forum stickies, especially the announcement that says "how to post pictures" it isn't that hard, and from something someone told me, you must be ghetto, cause you can't read the announcements. (and the fact you are a yankee)

i found what the problem was on my amp and sub the remote wire on the amp is ran to my radio fuse so my amp has power all the time since i have the stock radio and a high low converter i dont have a remote wire on the radio so i put in a cut off switch that goes from the remote wire to the fuse and i can turn the amp on and off 50-100 dollar job for 3 dollars all you need is a simple kill switch and electrical tape or connectors

my uncle has a kill switch, but it's also the gain knob, you push it in to turn on or off the amp, and turn the knob to control the sub woofer gain.

I got some hunk of crap off of ebay but it has a +12v output when there is signal from the head unit.. Since our stock headunits dont have a remote and/or power antenna wire I needed this to turn my amps on and off..

Im finishing up installing my system tonight so ill see how it sounds.. If it sounds like ass then im going to get a "better quality" low-level converter and then just run the remote amp wires off of the ignition with a delayed relay on them to prevent feedback and popons.. Since I leave my radio on whenever im in the car there wont be any feedback noise, if u dont want to hear the radio then just turn the volume to 0 but still leave the headunit on..

hehe.. Or ill just use the ebay junk converter to output +12v for remote and let a better converter actually convert the sound for me..

Okay so I've searched the amp/sub write ups but I can't for the life of me find info where to splice a high low converter without having to remove the factory radio.
From what I've read/heard, there's little difference for the everyday listener between using the rear speaker harness or the harness behind the radio.
I just want to install my sub and amp the easy way, if that's possible.

So any links with good images/directions on the best alternate spot to splice besides the radio harness please and thank you!

Depends on the location of the amp... I have mine where the spare tire goes, I just used the metal tab where the jack goes into, and tapped into that metal piece for my ground.

why are subs so difficult in the fit?

Hey Y'all,
I've been reading through some threads on here and have noticed many people think installing subs is kind of a pain in the a-- with the Fit...Just wondering what exactly is tough about it. I am pretty inexperienced with car audio stuff, but my cousin seems to be pretty knowledgeable and he volunteered to help me out. I am planning on putting in a new headunit and some JL Audio subs.
Thanks.
