    Hi all,

    I've bought a Xtrons headunit and all adaptors needed but there's no way to wire up the speakers from what i can see. I can power the unit up, aerial sorted etc but no sound obviously

    I've tried to research this for a week or so but no luck so hoping someone has done this and can help

    Look forward to your replies

    Many thanks

    Do you have Bose?

    hahah!!

    but yes, it will be because your speakers are wired to the amp and not the headunit.

    Usually by rewiring the speakers to the head unit bypassing the amp.

    For some reason (probably the complexities of MB electrickery) I didn't think it would be as simple as that:)

    Might be easier to wire in a different amp depending on the ports on the head unit.
