Metra harnesses are great quality harnesses. There is a reason that they are the first choice of a vast majority of pro installers. While I'm not a pro, I am quite proficient in the realm of audio installations and I too prefer metra products(although on occasion I have used scosche products as well). This harness includes, besides the interface from aftermarket head unit to the stock vehicle harness, the harness to put the stock sub and amp back into your system when installing an aftermarket head unit. If you already have an aftermarket head unit and just need to integrate the stock sub into your aftermarket system, metra makes a harness for that purpose as well(as I found out after I ordered this harness) and the model number of that harness is 70-5522. Either way, you really can't go wrong and this harness will get the job done and help you to install your aftermarket system with no cutting required to the stock harness. A caveat with the stock sub interface, tho. Be sure to also either install a ready made 12v to 5v inline converter on the remote turn on line, or, if you are aptly capable, install a 7805 regulator should you have one laying around(this was the route I took because I actually did have one laying around). The reason for this is to avoid a loud pop when turning on the amp because of a voltage mismatch between the common remote lead of most systems and the remote lead in on the stock amp.

December 30, 2013 Perfect Fit!

This product was a great fit and simplified my do-it-yourself installation by making an easy connection/fit between the after market stereo wiring and the stock stereo harness. The only thing that would have made it perfect would be if the harness had the two orange wire dimmer connector that both the stock harness and after market stereo had. The dimmer switch on stereo face doesn't work because of this but the front still lights up and looks great. The team at Sonic included everything i needed.

This is the harness needed to interface an aftermarket head unit with the MACH system in my '04 Mustang.
Everything worked great!

My sisters fiance has an 04 f150. About a year ago when him and my sister came down from washington i took him to a local audio shop and he got a jvc 7 inch touch screen installed. We later found out that the factory sub no longer worked, went back to the shop and asked them to fix it. They said it would take 45 minutes (my sister didn't want to wait nor did her fiance). This last week they were down again and still no subwoofer. So i came to Sonic and got this harness. Pulled out the deck, hooked it up in about 15 minutes and wahh lahh. The sub worked again, without sonic we would have bought an amp wiring kit, and a new amp.

Needed a second harness to activate the subwoofer. After a few back and forth emails to Sonic, they provided it free of charge.
