Radio Installation?

Recommended Posts


I recently purchased an IS200 and was hoping to remove the cassette radio set and add a new system: https://www.jbhifi.com.au/gps-car-audio/pioneer/pioneer-mvh-x385bt-in-car-stereo-with-rds-tuner-and-bluetooth/833822/

I was wondering if there was a particular process needed or any additional parts required to achieve this? I've seen a stack of youtube videos but I'm still uncertain if I need anything else. 

Thanks for the help!

When replacing these headunits you need to bypass factory amplifier. Depending on your wiring knowledge you can do this yourself or just buy a premade loom to plug n play. 

Now once this is done your headunit will now work with the speakers but the factory speakers will sound bad with new headunit because they are a different ohms rating. Best to buy new speakers too if you want great results
