quadratec's aux adapater kit

anyone use this? Quadratec Exclusive JW-AUX-IN - Auxiliary Audio Input Adapter Kit for 97-06 Jeep® Wrangler TJ & Unlimited - Quadratec

i don't really want to remove the stock headunit and put in an aftermarket one and was thinking about using this.

i'm wondering how challenging the setup is, and the sound quality if it causes any issues at all.

thanks!

There is a company on ebay that will fit your stocker with a port so u can use ur ipod etc with the wire into it. They charge 50$. They also sell stockers already done on ebay for 100$ishthe and then u just remove urs and put one thats complete in. Those adapter kits are a pain in the ass.

yea i knoww.. i was looking for alternative options to the aux mod, which goldeneagle informed me about.

to be frank, i'm not a big fan of the flashing neon lights and like my setups to be original.

but to your point, if the cost is not that far off, i may as well get a new head unit. haha

I bought a setup off of amazon for I think 50 bucks. Plugs directly into the back of the radio into your 6 cd changer slot. I strung the wire underneath the console. Then I drilled a hole into the center console storage and that's where it comes out at. Sounds just like you were listening to a cd. I'll see if I can get a picture and a brand name if you want it?

yes! i'm uncertain how this was feasible though. are you saying there's an aux in behind the oem headunit? or the product you bought does that for you.

I have an o6 Wrangler X. My radio just has the cd player in it. For my radio, I have the option for a 6 disk cd changer,which I don't actually have, that plugs directly into the back. It is a 10 pin connection. With the auxiliary setup, it plugs into the same location with a 10 pin connection that goes to a small adaptor box. Off of the box there is a left and right speaker connection that combines into a head phone jack which then connects to the auxiliary input. To use it I just have to hit the mode button on my radio like I am playing a cd. When I get off work Ill try to remember to get the info and pictures for ya. It wouldn't hurt if you havent done it, to take your radio out and see what kind of connections you got. Also like I said, sound is great and where I have mine there is no wires strung across the vehicle to get in the way. Kind of funny talking about all this since I got my Zune player stolen out of my jeep last week. That kind of sucked.

1. really sorry that happened to your zune being stolen.
2. is there a write up link on taking out the headunit, and better yet the entire dash? i need to do some cleaning as the original owner was a smoker.
3. i'd love the photos and info from you when and if you can.

thanks!

Just found what I bought on amazon. I was wrong about the price. it was 59 just for the adaptor box. then the rest of the cords needed ran about 10 dollars. you may be able to find it cheaper. This is the name that it is under in amazon.

If anyone wants one of these, I have one I need to remove. I got a new head unit.

hmm i just realized something.
i don't have the 3 switches that controls the rear defroster, wiper and whatever the last button does in my wrangler. i could've easily missed it since i've had no reason to look for them.. but since i'm getting my hardtop this friday, I realized I never saw the 3 switches. Anyone care to tell this noob where I can find it in my '05 LJ? I feel like they're usually on the center console... -_-

How did you like it? I had been considering one for the Jeep, but even more so for my work truck that I can't replace the radio in.

It was not bad. You can set the dip switches for a number of frequencies then you tune the radio to the frequency. You would set it to a frequency that does not have a station in your area but if you do a lot of distance driving and run into an area that has a radio station on the frequency the unit is set for, you may get a little interference or static.

It did not play my nano as loud as the factory radio. The factory radio with the top down was JUST barely loud enough. The ipod being a little lower was ok.

Only factory hard top and dual top models will come with the switches for the defrost and wiper. The other spots are for OD off (automatic) and Lockers (Rubicon). You can buy a kit to install the wiper/defrost if you get a hard top.

Check this out. I have one and it works amazingly well. I like the factory head unit and didn't want to change it out. Economical and it works well.

Ive had all kinds of adapters going back to using cd players with tape decks, sirius with factory radios, antenna boosters, tape adapter to use ipod etc and honestly the aftermarket adapters and have never found any of them to be of astounding quality for the audio output. If it wasnt that aftermarket headunits that are the correct size (1.5 or double din) are soo expensive and regular ones dont look like they belong id sooner go with one of these factory units adapted for 50$ cause thats what the company charges to do your unit when u send it to them, and you still have a factory unit that work and looks the part and sounds the best.

Ok so if people are modifying stock radios surely someone on here knows how to do it and could do a write up. If I'm going to spend $100 I'll just put an aftermarket one in. But if I had some instructions I might attempt the mod myself first.

Mixed reviews, but its a bit cheaper, and if your going to be doing it yourself, I'm sure you could come up with a creative stock like place to mount it.

Its been a while since I have been to this thread. One of the reasons I chose to go with an adapter connected directly to the radio is so that my setup looked stock. less chance of it getting stolen that way. I have a post up top somewhere that shows what I purchased. It doesn't take any time at all to take the dash and radio out. If someone wants pictures of my setup and where I routed the auxiliary port I can do that this weekend. Ill try to do step by step if needed.

Sorry about taking so long on getting pics together. Got a few photos together to show my setup.
First you want to take the trim piece at the bottom of the windshield out. A flat head screwdriver will work it is just snapped in.

Now you will have two screws that have just been uncovered. This holds the cover around the radio in.

After that the radio cover will come out. Use the flat head to work the snaps holding it in.

After that there will be four screws holding the radio at the front. Take these out.

There will also be a bolt in the back of the radio holding it in. It will probably be 10mm. You will have to go through the glovebox to get to it.

After that, your radio is ready to come out. You will also want to seporate the radio antenna. That's sitting behind the glovebox. I don't have a pic but you'll know when you get there.
