  1. Hi all, Does anyone have experience installing an aftermarket head unit in a 2015+ Toyota Corolla Ascent Auto (ZRE182R)? I've recently had a sub and amp wired up to the factory head unit using the line out converter built into my amplifier but it sounds terrible. Attached is a photo of what the head unit looks like in my car. Do the factory units in these cars cut bass at higher volumes? Is the factory unit poor quality? I'm looking at installing a Kenwood DMX7017BTS (https://www.kenwood.eu/car/navigation_multimedia/multimedia/DMX7017BTS/) and also want to retain my factory steering controls, reverse camera and USB port. Hoping someone out there has managed to get an aftermarket head unit put in so I can get some advice/feedback on whether it's worth the $1,000+ investment. Thanks!
  2. Hey peeps, currently have a 2006 ys Yaris that is a basic steering wheel installed but is it possible to change the steering wheel with a YRS or a YRX steering wheel? I want to be able to have the functions of being able to control my audio with the steering wheel but unsure if it's possible and what is needed to be done to change it? how to connect the audio wires? I have no idea since I'm just a 21 year old female with no knowledge of cars haha! Any advice would be helpful
  3. Hi all, Just got a new 2017 Camy SX (has the 10 speaker JBL system) and very happy with it except the sound quality doesn't quite suit my taste, I fine the mid drivers facing the front windshield rather harsh and tinny. Anyone else find this or just me? I am an ex sound engineer and love JBL pro gear so was quite surprised. Low end is quite acceptable. Any thoughts on something to switch out the four mid drivers with and if so would you get the dealer to or elsewhere? I'm in Victoria. Cheers!
  4. Hey guys My front speakers are sounding pretty crap and I want to replace them. I checked crutchfield and it says the size is 6 1/2", but I read somewhere that the size in the Aussie version of the car is smaller. I don't really want to have to fit an adapter so I just want to buy the correct size first go. Thanks!!
  5. Hi everyone, I am new to the Prado world and struggling using the audio system in the Kakadu 2012 I can use the touch screen for tuning the radio etc, however the buttons on the Audio system itself do not do anything. Such as the Power on button, volume, tuning etc. I have been reading the manual and cant find anything that says these wont work. is there a setting somewhere, or do I just have a malfunctioning system? Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks
  6. Fumoto Oil Drain Valve (F-103) 12mm. $40. Toyota Headunit CD, Radio, Tape deck (double din 6 stacker cd) $50. ITG Maxogen JC60/70 Pod Filter (2.75") - 290 BHP. Comes with No Toil filter oil (2 litre) and cleaner (1.7kg). $100.
  7. Just a post for numbers really. What type of audio setup is in your car? Ie, Sub, speakers, amp, sound deadening etc, how much did it set you back and give it a rating out of 10. I'll start I guess... I'm in the process of installing a soundstream 152hf sub running at 1300rms with type R 6" at the front and type R 6X9" at the back with full boot and door sound deadening. It's going to be running off a kenwood DDX4015BT double din deck. The sub I would rate at 8.5/10 as its from my old car, the speakers I have heard and I would give overall quality a 7 but for their price range, it's more like an 8-9/10. Sound deadening is new for me and I'll update with details of the effect on audio it has once it's all done. Cheers!
  8. Hi Mates, i have toyota aurion ZR6 2009 with sat nav , i would like to fit a usb/aux to the HU, so i could enjoy listening to music from Flash stick or ipod ,if anyone has an idea in how to do this , i will be so appreciated.
  9. I am currently installing a Toyota Display Audio unit from the ZRE182R Ascent Sport hatchback in my 2008 Corolla Ascent sedan. I have the luxury pack on it, so I bought the PZQ60-00121 wire harness to get the steering wheel controls working, and I bought one of the antenna adapters off eBay. I have taken out the old head unit, connected the adapters to the new Display Audio head unit, and plugged in all the connectors from the car. When I start up the car, the unit comes on, the steering wheel controls work and I can see the RDS data being displayed when the unit is in FM mode. For some reason though, I am not getting any audio out of the unit. I have made sure all the connections from the car that were connected to the old head unit were plugged into the new one, and checked the volume is turned up, and have tried AM, FM and Bluetooth Streaming, however I am still not getting any audio through the speakers. Has anyone else upgraded their older Corollas to the post-2012 head units? Did Toyota change the wiring for the speakers? Do I need to order another wiring harness for the speakers, and if so what is the part number for it? Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me :) If you need more information just let me know :)
  10. Hi Everyone, I have a Corolla Ascent and the head unit I purchased requires me to mount an external mic. Is this location an okay place to mount the microphone (see image)? Just out of interest, what are the gaps actually for? Thanks :)
  11. Hello all, So I've recently traded in my 2010 Corolla for a 2009 Aurion Sportivo SX6 and absolutely love it so far. The only issue I have so far is the stock audio system. In my Corolla I had a straight forward setup, with a 4 channel amplifier powering my 4 door speakers, and a mono amp powering a 12' sub, with an after market head unit, which have been removed from the Corolla and are now waiting to be installed. However, because the Aurion has a few more fancy features such as reverse camera and steering wheel controls, it would seem a very expensive option to replace the head unit to one that is compatible with the reverse camera (which I would like to keep). Firstly, does anybody know the sizes of the speakers in the Aurion? I'm assuming the front door speakers are standard 6 inch, and the rear shelf ones are 6x9 inch. Please correct me if I am wrong. More importantly though, is will it be possible (and decent) if I simply run the stock head unit, with my 4 channel powering the front door speakers and the rear shelf ones, and my mono powering my sub? I know many stock units will work with this, but I want to make sure this will work 100% before I get someone to fiddle around with it. Any ideas, help, or contributions will be gladly appreciated, cheers! :)
  12. Hi Guys I have just purchased a 2007 Black Aurion Prodigy and just wanted to introduce myself and show the start of my audio install. I sadly had to purchase a new car as the engine on my old one kicked it. Hopefully I can find an engine and bring it back to it's former glory. But for now I looked at the cars available and was really impressed with the Aurion it's a car I can't say I payed much notice too before but after looking at it more closely and driving it I was sold on it. So I wanted to do a few mods to make the Aurion more to my liking which is mostly just some interior mods. The first one will be a different kinda audio update so to speak. I plan on moving the stock head unit further inside the dash (Need to check if there is space if someone can advise me that be great) and using a double din fascia and a Nexus 7 tablet as my main audio unit. I am going to do the aux into the head unit and have that hooked up to the tablet and have that for my sound. The main reason I am going to stick to the stock head unit is I don't want to mod too much with this car (Did enough of that on the previous car) and the steering wheel controls work perfectly with this setup. You can still use FM and can also change the station and set new stations up all with the controls on the wheel and the option for volume and mute on the steering wheel it's a perfect and cheap match. So I've currently gotten the fascia and the nexus tablet and will be taking the dash apart soon to see if i can fit the stock head unit back further and mount the fascia. I'm a big fan of android and use it in a lot of my projects so I thought the nexus 7 is perfect fit for the car :) I hope to update soon and become a active member on this forum
  13. Hi all, I am replacing my girlfriends headunit in her Toyota Corolla Ascent 2008 and I need some help finding a replacement. I have attached images of what she currently has and here are some links to eBay auctions for new headunits. Your help would be greatly appreciated. I measured the unit that is in there currently and it's around 20cms width and 10cms height. http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/290855756390?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649 http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/221210230479?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2648 Thanks in advance. Michael
  14. Hey guys, I recently installed a JVC KW-AV60BT in my 2011 Camry Hybrid. The installation was easy however, gathering all the correct information was difficult. So in the interest of future upgraders, I figured i'd dump all the information I found useful here. Factory Head Unit: Fujitsu Ten 86120-YY130-D Model: FT0015A JVC KW-AV60BT: There's a good write up of the unit here: http://www.crutchfie...-KW-AV60BT.html Steering Wheel Control Integration: To maintain the factory steering wheel control, I chose Axxess Interface's ASWC: http://www.axxessint...ontrol_new.aspx instructions on installing the unit is also on that page. Pay particular attention the the wire colours. IE. (Orange/Blue vs. Blue/Orange. The first means orange wire with blue stripe, the second means blue wire with orange stripe.) Factory Reverse Camera: This is where it got a little tricky. The factory reverse camera takes in 6V instead of the standard 12V. The 6V is fed to the camera from the factory HU. As a result of this, you will need to make a converter that will convert 12V to 6V and tap into the Live wire (RED) to the head unit. Instructions on making your own voltage converter can be found here. Parts costs bout AUD 6 bucks all up. http://www.toyotanat...rong> </strong> Removal of Fascia: To get to the double Din bracket, you have to remove a few fascia plates. DJKOR has a really good write up for the Aurion here (works fine for the camry too): http://au.toyotaowne...ory-audio-unit/ Double Din Bracket: Because the JVC came with a removable face plate, it stuck out from the front of the fascia by about 15mm. To fix this, I had to drill new holes on the factory double din bracket. Fascia: Although the factory head unit is Double Din mounted, the front of the unit is actually wider then a standard double din head unit. As a result, the standard factory fascia will not fit the aftermarket radio. (It will fit, you will be left with 2 gaping holes either side of the radio tho). Solution: I bought a aftermarket fascia from factory_fit on ebay. It looks and feel like the factory fascia, except the hole is cut to the correct double din standard. You will need to remove the factory fascia clips and install them on the aftermarket fascia. (They can be a bit tricky to remove, be patient) The radio fascia is clipped to the airconditioner unit. To remove the radio fascia, hold onto the airconditioner unit and slide the radio fascia to the left and pull up (Looking at the front of the unit). It should just clip out. Wiring: This is where it gets interesting. Wiring diagrams to the factory head unit are here: http://au.toyotaowne...it/page__st__15 There are 4 connectors connected to the factory radio. POWER/AUDIO (2 connectors side by side), sensor signal (1 connector) and AM/FM antenna (1 rounded connector) In the link above, DJKOR has provided a very detailed diagram of the POWER/AUDIO connectors. Peter Yeh has described the wires on the sensor signal connector. The AM/FM antenna plugs straight into the JVC without issue. I strongly recommend using Aeropro harness to connect your factory connectors to the JVC. I bought 2 Aeropro harness which did the job. 1 x Toyota to ISO 1 x ISO to JVC Make sure you check the Aeropro harness to ensure the wires are connected to the right place. My ISO to JVC had the front and rear speakers the wrong way round. Unfortunately, Aeropro, at the time of posting, doesn't make a harness for the sensor signal connector. This means wire connectors! You will need an RCA cable to tap into the reverse signal. 2 wires. With the voltage converter you made, connect the 6V out to the camera Positive cable. Connect the reverse signal cable from the factory harness to the JVC Connect the parking brake wire on the JVC to any ground (This is illegal in Australia as doing so will prevent the safety features of JVC from stopping video playback while the vehicle is in motion.) Connect the other wires to the steering wheel control interface. See instructions on their website for details. End result: I thought the toyota factory HU was decent, and lets face it, it does sound pretty decent but lacks in the functionality department. And that ipod integration was half baked... But the JVC blew that out the water! It just sounds amazing! Bluetooth works perfect, people can actually hear me now! Ipod integration works as it should, and it sounds amazing!!!

  18. We picked up our new 2012 build KX-S yesterday. It came with a new type of audio unit which wasn't in the Kluger when we ordered last year. The KX-S has unit model PZQ60-00511. I found this document which gives an overview of the 3 levels of audio unit they are putting in the new Klugers. It has a nice touch screen interface. Very easy to pair up with the iPhone, and stream music and make phone calls. The KX-S unit is now a single disc CD instead of the previous 6 stack CD. One thing I have noticed is the unit is capable of displaying the reverse camera, but this doesn't appear to have been wired up, it still just displays on the small screen above. Will question this at first service. It has an SD card slot, which on the Grande apparently contains the SatNav maps, but for the KX-S unit is pretty much pointless. You cannot play music from it, it's only apparent use is to display photos on the screen. Would be nice if you could play music from it rather than having to use a USB stick.
  19. I am looking at getting this Head unit to put into Corolla 2002. Has anyone put one of these into there car. If they are ok or can someone tell me what is a good chinese all in one head unit. http://au.xtrons.com...yer-TD602G.html
