Hi All, Yes this is a guide to installing a sub, to a cd30, which people think can not happen with ease! So i am here to help anyone who is thinking about installing it.
Ok so there is a slight problem of getting a route to the battery supply i simply removed the dashboard, 4 screws and a little tug and its out. I then used a screwdriver to poke a hole threw the rubber to pull the lead through, using a wire coathanger. After which i installed the cable to the positive on the battery. (i am yet to install a power cap)
i then puttyed the inside as the whole became bigger.
overall this is how the car looked once i installed the power cable.
ok so thats that out of the way the next thing is installing the
Autoleads PC1-601 Line Output Connector avaliable at halfords.
this means loosing your back speakers however i am currently in the process of trying to reconnect them. using the instructions supplied cut the correct cables on the cd30 it states on the top of the player which leads are which, in total you will cut 4 wires as shown below. the earth cable can be wrapped around the metal case (shown below) inside the cd player slot. once installed this will then connect to the wiring kit (see installation instructions).
(line output cable connector)
now for the remote start up lead(blue), i am currentley in the process of finding a way of connecting the cable to the ignition as soon as i have completed this i will update this thread, for now i have connected this to the red power cable on the back of the cd player as shown below.
please note that the best way to wire the amp is to use the passenger side and start installing all the cable around the back of the dashboard, as the wires can be hid under the plastic covering. If you have any question please dont hesitate to message me! Have Fun Astra Club!
