  • Ford Fusion 2011 HU replacement

    Hi,

    In another thread there is a guy asking how could he change his HU from his Audi TT and maybe keep the original amp.

    I'll have the same issue when the time arrive so I can plug in my CarPC.

    Ford Fusion has a Sony 12-speakers 5.1 factory amp`ed sound system that seems to sound fairly ok (many says it sounds horrendous, but i am no audiophile).
    Question is: if I plug a harness to my original wiring that has RCA outputs for speakers would it be a problem just to stick it in directly into the back of the CarPC?

    The harness in question is found on ebay on this link (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Radio...ht_1043wt_1165 )

    See the RCA outputs for speakers... its exactly 5.1 (beeing green/purple the center speakers and subs).

    So, is there a problem to stick it on the onboard sound card outputs??

    Thank you guys! Sorry for my english, not my main language.

    If your CarPC has a sound card that supports that number of channels, it should work. It would be nice if every audio install was that straightforward.

      That's what i am doing. Got a above average sound hard and are going to wire up 3.5mm jacks to the scosche wiring harness. plug it directly into the sound card and to the factory amp. Just might be the easiest thing to do in this whole project.

        yeah my sound card supports up to 7.1 and the car speakers are disposed in 5.1 channels so i will be using this scheme.
        thank you very much

          another thing came to my mind:
          can I use these 'sensor wires' to power up the PSU? there`s an ignition wire there....
          also, there is 'reargear sensor', would it work with the Lilliput -RV models with green wire exposed?
          i hope so....
          thank you!

            That reverse wire should work, but I don't recommend using factory wires for the pc power

              thank you for replying...
              i`ll draw the power directly from the battery....
              what i just want is to pull ignition wire from this harness so i can control motherboard on/off status based on ignition (without cutting wires... 3yr warranty) and even anti thump for factory amp....
