ba stereo install

g'day guys,
i'm finally re-installing my stereo in the ba. i've done the woodwork and now i only need to do the wiring and speaker install.

the rear speakers are easy.. before i break anything can anyone give me a rundown on taking off the door trims.

ALSO

i've got the ac/cd radio unit half out.. but it seems to be jamming. what's the trick to getting it out? and when i do get it out what colour wire is what? i need to fit the high input converters to the speaker wires and also intercept the speaker side of the wires and send them to the back of the car for the amps.

should i just run the remote power for the amps from an accessory source or is there a better way?

if anyone knows of any tutorials that'd be cool too. i need to have the car back together by tuesday so any help would be much appreciated.

Re: ba stereo install

i have just recently pulled out my icc unit, the trick is underneath there are 4 wiring harnesses, unplug them and u'll see it will fall out.when u put it back in dont put the tissue holder back in first or whatever u have there, otherwise u wont get the harnesses back in, as for the line converters dont cut the wires in the dash do it from the rear speakers in the boot it's much easier and u wont affect ur system, and have all these wires cut. belive me...i think that u can use the cigarette positive(+) wire for a remote wire but thats all i no about that. as for the door trim, easy. 6 screws, 2 in door handle, 2 at the bottom of the door, one on either side at the top, then there is just clips al the way around give it a little yank it'll take abit....that's it i guess, let me know how it goes....happy installing...

Re: ba stereo install

sorry mate, did you mean fordforums.com?? or another site, the only gallery here is full of car pics. i know that this forum stops you from putting in the address of any competing sites.

today i managed to get the icc out... and i ran the necessary wiring to complete the install. HOWEVER, i have not connected the wires up yet as i don't know which wires from the icc are for the front speakers. that is all i need.

as you suggested xr6me i am picking up the rears at the rear but i still need the front speakers. and i'll mount both the converters in the boot.

i also replaced all four speakers with JL audio 120W 5x7's. the difference is amazing. (i had to put the icc back as the car wouldn't start without it.... go figure)

by the way mate, thanks for the suggestion of using the cigarette lighter for the acc power (remote power) that'll do just fine and it's quite easy to get at.

Re: ba stereo install

sorry i meant www.fordforums.com.au . the .au is a different site it's the aussie version but has good stuff in it. so you saying the cigarette plug worked fine.?? if it did thats awesome. how much did the jl speakers cost you, where did u get them, do u live in nsw. i put alpine type r splits in the front they are awesome. but instead of cutting the front speaker wires if u can feed new wires through the door that would be much better. try by feeding some wire(get rid of the sharp end so it wont cut any wires)through the rubber bit near where the door hinges then use that as a draw wire for the new cabling. let me no if that works for ya....good luck...

Re: ba stereo install

g'day mate, i've done the rear of the car and am again with sub! my lord it is AWESOME!!

it's in need of levels adjusting, and the front speakers are still running off the head unit, as i still don't know which wire is which. i dont want to stuff around in the doors, i've already changed the speakers and it's too hard to try getting more wires in there (i'd need two pairs)....

i'll make a very neat job under the dash using snap connectors and crimp fittings. (my job is 12v electrical wiring on caravans) however in order to do this i still need to know which wires the front speakers are.

*sigh*... i've looked all over fordforums.com and i can't find it to save myself. i think i'll ring ford and see if they can help me.

by the way, the JL speakers are $159 a pair at jb, but i asked for the best price and they did them for $250 for both pairs. i was happy with that.
