You should be able to get the adaptor from Raido Shack. It'll probably be a little cheaper. I changed out my head unit about 2 years ago and thats all I did. The amps, antenna, and everything else works. There's different types of adaptors so make sure you get the right one for an Infiniti G20.

Crutchfield has everything for our cars... sometimes you need to coax them a bit. Sentra speaker wiring harnesses will work. They have the headunit wiring harnesses/adapters listed under our cars, and they have the correct speaker sizes listed under our cars.

the harness thing is called a signal line output converter. Forget about crutchfield they carry these things at pretty much any consumer electronic chain stores like curcuit city, bestbuy, etc. I bought mine from good guys way back in 97' for like 40 bucks by a company called peripheral. And don't confuse them with saying you have an infiniti and its a bose system because its basically a premium nissan adapter and the supprisingly my stock system in my 93.5 was all made by Clarion. Too bad I don't have is sitting around anymore I'd just give it to you. Heres a link to their site
Its pretty simple to do theres one end where you attach the factory harness to and theres a pair of colored wires for each channel and 4 gain controls you adjust each with a tiny screwdriver. I grabbed some old male rca cables sitting around and cut off four of them to each pair of colors to attach to the HU RCA outputs. Then all you do is isolate say the front driver speaker by setting the HU balance completely to the Left and set the Fader all the way to the front. Then swap the RCA's around till the speaker works and continue with the next speaker. The box is pretty bulky so make sure you tie it down to something behind the dash. You'll also need a antenna adapter for a nissan to whichever HU brand your buying. hope that helps

Well actually I bought the HU in 97' in another car and bought the converter around 99/00' into the G. I'm actually in the process of swapping all my interior to Tseats, black carpet, matts etc. I met some hardcore car audio veteran and IASCA judge this last weekend. He gave me tons of install advice to the point where I'm re-doing my whole install over and maybe compete. I spent a ton of time allready fabricating my kicks and pods and he told me ways to get way better imaging so I'm doing them all over. I don't even care how many hrs I spent on them alone. I'm trying to salvage most of my old equipment and upgrading the rest on a tight budget. You guys may laugh at this but I initially bought my p10 because I thought it was perfect for a nice system. I didn't know a thing about primeras till I got GT1 on PS1 :rolleyes:
I loved the cabin shape, dash shape (perfect for a horn setup),legspace, headroom, trunk size, factory sound deadening, larger alternator than my old wimpy honda one, etc etc. I'm still brainstorming amprack layouts but I'll keep ya'll posted if interested. Sorry to hog the thread I got carried away.

Man, I need to brush up on my Ebonics.....I can barely figure out what you're saying Fero.....:paranoid: ;) :p

But, seriously Fero.......think about it, you use these crackheads for installing your stuff.....whose to say they won't steal it and sell it?

BTW these crackheads change oil, install mobile electronics, and detailing....maybe they should open up a shop!!!!:bandit:
