Default New Apline CDE-103BT install and some other stuff...

I am getting excited, I feel like a kid again! Its been years since I have been into stereo stuff

I received my Metra harness today for factory amp integration and should be receiving the HU tomorrow! I thought i would make a thread of my install to show it off. I am still shopping for a sub/box combo to complete my setup and was gonna wait to install it all at once but i got a feeling i will be tearing the truck up tomorrow to put what i have in lol. I will probably go ahead and run the amp wires as well while I have the dash out.

Head unit - http://www.alpine-usa.com/product/view/cde-103bt


Harness -


Amp -


I will post some pics of the install and finished product. The only reason I am stalling on the sub/box is because I am a net freak and absolutely have to have a system that looks CLEAN and I have not found a box solution that is acceptable. I am open to suggestion still...

Can some help me with the harness?

I have a dimmer wire coming from the ford harness but no corresponding wire on the alpine. Does that mean this wire is not used? or do i tie it in to something else?

I also have a:
Power antenna-
Audio interrupt in-
On the alpine harness, do i just leave these alone?

That harness with the RCA's isn't needed. There's no factory amp in your truck.

Are you sure? Your truck isn't a Tremor.

Positive. Amp and sub are in the center console. My truck is the EDGE+

and I was told the Tremor harness will work.

Alrighty then. Hook up the blue/white wire. Also, you're going to need to run another blue wire for another amp turn on for the other amp. Does that make sense? I can do a MS Paint drawing if you need?

I got that much. Thats why I am waiting to connect until i get in in the truck so i can run the separate remote wire for the other amp. I was more concerned with the wires i was talking about in post #6?

Well you don't have a power antenna so you don't need to hook that wire up. And I have no idea what "Audio Interrupt" is unless it's like a mute wire. But I wouldn't worry about hooking it up.

I figured those were not used. The "Audio Interrupt" has to do with a car phone i think. What about the dimmer?
