    ISO help please

    Think this should be in a sticky somewhere and the technocal guides link at the top isn't working...anyway

    I am hoping to put a Nakamichi CD45z head unit in the Astra soon. It has a factory Blaupunkt CAR300 in there at the moment. Taken it out to have a peek and theres three connections at the back. The Nakamichi doesn't have ISO connectors- theres just loads of wires. I will require the h/u amplification for the time being.

    There doesn't look to be enough room at the back of the metal cage for the Nakamichi to fit in, and besides theres a huge fuse holder on the battery cable that I believe wants to be plugged directly to the cars battery terminal.

    Please help and as I said, a sticky I feel would help as there must be others in my situation.

    Regards

    you can buy a iso (male) to bare wires, this will sortout you problem, the wires on the new iso connector will have what goes where writting on them and it normally says on the packet what they are too.
