JVC KW-AVX720 Double din help with wiring

Recommended Posts

I have recently had a JVC KW-AVX720 Double din head unit fitted, the sound quality was ok...so i thought i would do some research into upgrading my door speakers...i removed the head unit to find that my dood speakers were not even wired up to the head unit, and i cannot see anywhere to wire them, the company that fitted the unit have shut down so i am a bit stuck, any help grateful

Did they tap into your old connector plug or just cut wires and start from scratch. I would think you should be able to find some free wires sitting behind the head unit. I assume they would be ganged together in pairs for a +/- configuration.

I think the wires have been taped up and left behind, was just unsure how to conect these up to the unit, i am sure they have not connected them for a reason, no idea why though

What year /model do you have? Is the car equipped with the MOST system which requires that the amplifier be replaced?Alternatively did you have the amp replaced? There are many threads on this site to install doulble din HU's which you might want to search that will give you a number of options for consideration. Worked for me.

I did not have the amp replaced, i have been looking on the forum but could not find anything related to a JVC double din unit.

Speaker wiring is not HU specific. Typically you have 4 channels Front & Rear, Left & Right & perhaps a sub mono channel which needs to be connected to either a sub woofer possibly in the passenger footwell or door subs if you have them. If you have an upgraded system with say standard door speakers as well as F & R you might want to combine the fronts with the doors as two channels & the rears as the other two channels. In my experience HU's have preouts for the amp and/or can be connected directly to the speakers. The speaker connections are easily accessed at the amplifier in the luggage compartment. Try a search for "speakers" "Pioneer" or "Kenwood" There is even a DIY for stereo installs on the site.
