Default double din help

so i just go a DD on sale nothing to fancy but it has everything that i need. I was told to buy a harness connector and to bypass the amp with it but not an expert in stereos so i require a little help. would it be better to connect it with the connector or just cut wires and join them together? and if anyone knows where i can a find a wiring diagram that would help a lot.

Get the connector don't cut the wires. That's what we call a micky mouse . On the connector should have the remote to turn on the factory amp. Don't cut the wire just bypass it. Good luck

Like tereck said, just use the harness. In addition to that, there's a link to installing an aftermarket receiver in the DIY post: http://www.clublexus.com/forums/gs-s...ou-search.html

Are you thinking about going with an aftermarket amp/sub? You are going to want some bass, it sounds really bad without anything. Definitely use the harness for the radio (I believe you just use half) and then bypass the amp. I bought a cheap amp to push the factory sub. I didn't want a lot of bass (it still sounds good) I didn't want to relive my high school days and lose any more hearing!

I have an AVIC D3 and I spliced the wires but I also rewired the stereo and have 2 amps in my car. If you want to just install the headunit and don't plan on upgrading everything else don't cut the wires and buy the harness.
