i just need to install this JVC KD-G230 in my rx-7. i have wired (to the best of my knowledge) the speakers to the wiring harness given to me by JVC. it has 12 wires in the wiring harness. 8 of em are for the speakers (2 for each speaker) 1 is for the antenna trigger, one for a live terminal, and one for an accessory terminal. (the last wire is for ground). now the antenna wire (JVC calls it a 12V wire or some shit that should be used if u have a motorized antenna) i don't have a problem with. its the two terminal wires. where do i wire them to? i got the wiring diagram for the rx7 and it says in the stereo harness, there is something called the constant voltage wire and a switched voltage wire. i thought maybe those were the ones i splice into but to no avail. i would do it but the head unit would turn on (only when i press the eject button) flash, and then turn back off again. what do u think i should do? i can give u the link to the wiring diagram and also for the JVC instruction manual. maybe u don't have to see it at all. tongue.gif

(the wiring diagram is at the last page)

hope this helps.




sooo any suggestions as to how to make this thing work?

BHR has not learned that driving a milly can also be fun........he still thinks it can't tow, remember?


Tow? He thinks it is made of sugar and melts in the rain :)

i cant do harness because the speakers themselves arent integrated into the stock harness. (previous owner...OY!) SOOOO..i had to wire them myself to the JVC harness.
