    Post Info for Mitsu Eclipse '00-'04

    Hi, just thought I'd share this info, because I've been having huge problems hooking up my carPC to my car as far as audio is concerned. So, this may help Mitsubishi owners a lot!

    Mitsubishi believes that the audio system in the car is propriatory (especially the 7-speaker Infiniti system), so they have done everything godly possible to make sure you cannot change the headunit or install aftermarket components (a-hole's). With the audio, they have an in dash double din headunit + attached CD-changer, with no aux input and no real harness. Only four little tiny wires that go to an amp under the passenger seat where sound is processed and then distributed to speakers. So, by seperating the two, they make sure you have to rewire whole car, etc...

    Just happened to come across something called a MITAH interface yesterday (and I have been told by over 8 professional install places that something like this did not exist for the Eclipse!). Link

    This adapter allows you to either hook any aftermarket audio source, i.e. headunit, iPod or CarPC to the factory amp, or replacing the amp and keeping the stock headunit! Hope this helps any Mitsubishi owners out there that have the Infinity system. And, to all those pro's out there, that told me things like I need to replace all the speakers and rewire whole car (It'll only be $600 in labor), please, I hope you burn in car audio-install hell

    Have you looked on club3g.com? I'm fairly positive this has been addressed there. Though for all I know, it might be the same answer.

    No prob, even though I have a Chrysler, the Sebring & Dodge Stratus coupes are basically longer eclipses. Pretty much everything mechanical and all of the interior (01-02 models) are almost identicle as you can see.

    So there's almost total of overlap. I usually frequent2gtratus.org and sometimes 3g. Anyway, both sites are good sources of info for our cars.

    yep, I got it from Club3g or NewEclipse.org. Just angers me that I had never seen this before on those sites. I even put up a few posts and everybody insisted I needed to change out whole system.
