Wired for Sound - Part 2

Right, let's get to the wring.

To do it right, I thought I'd start fresh with as much wire as I can replace. This included the rear harness which was in a mess. I know this because I pulled the current CD player to inspect what I was up against. It wasn't pretty.

I decided to get a standard molex adapter that I can wire myself. The best thing I found was an 8 way adapter which will be suitable for a 4 speaker setup (2 wires per speaker).

Here's what I bought. I got it from Jaycar Electronics.

Next is to wire this adapter to the head unit's rear harness. One by one and a bit of patience.
Looking good if I do say so myself!

I also bought a 30m roll of new speaker wire to replace all the crap that had been rotting for 2 decades. Also from Jaycar Electronics.

Next is the installation of the head unit and re cable all the speakers.
