V37 Headunit do i need to upgrade to run an amp and sub?

Recommended Posts

the headunit in my 2020 V37 seems pretty good but im worried About how much stuff its actually hooked into in my vehicle that if i upgrade im going to lose alot of that connectivity.

the screen shares everything by the looks of it and i want to run a sub and amp so if i can do it of the factory system that would be great if not im not sure what options i have.

One option would be to find the head unit line out to the factory amp, and intercept/use that as input to your new amp (have to wire up separate speakers of course).

I went through something similar with my old CU2 Accord Euro (has a factory 7-ch Panasonic amp, which gets fed by some weird built-in equaliser in the HU). Pain in the arse to try to keep it factory-ish (I went to the trouble of finding compatible connector on aliexpress and then wiring it all up).

yer so the AMP is in the back under the tray and the sub sits in the tray.

im thinking of unplugging the amp itself and checking what wires do what and just wire everything up from the styandard amp/sub loom.

just hope everything works as intended but im thinking there should be all the wires i need.

    • Here is my 2013 Nissan Skyline 370GT Type-S has a factory Nismo exhaust and Enkei rims. Shes completely unmodified. Brought her from Cult & Classic and drove down from NSW to Tassie November last year. 
    • Yet another thread bump because I want to talk about this: The general gist that this guy found for a MK7 Golf GTI is that by adding a venturi from a 2022 Tiguan he managed to pull crankcase vacuum far more reliably under boost which effectively stopped oil consumption on his engine in track conditions. An earlier video details how that venturi works: Basically one port is atmospheric vent, one port goes to a boost source, and the last port goes to the crankcase vent. There's a lot of discussion on here about scavenge pumps and all that fun stuff, why not try to replicate that by pulling some energy off the compressor? There is one catch though and that is that the PCV diaphragm on these cars appears to completely block off airflow from the intake when there is enough crankcase vacuum. This contrasts with the RBs where there is basically nothing stopping vacuum from the intake from sucking a big gulp of oil if it gets into the crankcase vent.
    • Hi All, Brought a 4 Door 2013 Skyline 370GT Type-S in November last year. Absolutely loving the car, noticed a few audio issues speakers cutting in and out and the 12V circuit seems to be completely dead (after checking and swapping the fuses) but just wanted to say Hi     
    • Could you please express this thought again with some clarity added?
    • So, whilst the Bogan Cruise Ship is GTG, and I had organised some time today to go on the SAU NSW cruise, my best laid plans where kicked in the balls, well, kicked in my right knee to be exact Now, after a bit of arthroscopic "honing" and tibial band lengthening "modifications" , I'm sitting on a couch in a prescription induced drug haze, watching 5hit on the Youtubes and falling in and out of consciousness......good times
