Radio install has me crying
Hi all, I am trying to replace the RAQ radio in my wife’s 2007 Commander. This vehicle has the Boston Acoustic speakers and does not have NAV.
I purchased a Kenwood BT758HD radio and XSVI-6502 harness from Best Buy. I realized after connecting everything and not getting any sound that I blew it because I did not know this vehicle has an amp when I bought this stuff. So I guess the XSVI-6502 is just the wrong harness.
Next goof is that I purchased a Schosce CR4000 from Walmart. It provided sound but the speakers buzzed when the head unit was turned off while the key was still on. Additionally the fade function would not work.
So now after researching it seems that a PAC C2R-CHY (I’ve seen this for $80 or so on Sonix) or Metra CHT0-013BB (don’t know where to buy this) is the correct harness. Can anyone please confirm this or advise me?
Thanks very much.
