Re: Grey Ghost Stereo Odyssey

For the GPS antenna I'd make it easy and just run it to the front of the dash by the little round sensor. Perfectly clear line of sight. Or you could run it up an A-pillar then across the headliner/windshield track and then have it dump right next to the rear view mirror/sensor thingy. I wouldn't go beyond the front windshield for line of sight - it's the most horizontal window on the Jeep.

Sounds like you know that you should use the USB for iPod input. This will charge the iPod, obviously play it, and you will have all of the information (playlist, artist, songs, etc.) show up on your F90 screen... with the stereo input (red/white plugs) it will only play music from the iPod and nothing else.

I'm not sure if the factory Sirius antenna will interface with the aftermarket units... if not, then I'd run this antenna in line with the GPS antenna as they both need line of sight and you will only do labor once.

A member here mounted his bluetooth mic flush with the nav bezel... that seems like a perfect location for it. If you search you should find some install pics of it... you can PM him for install instructions.

Re: Grey Ghost Stereo Odyssey

We've installed qute a few of these Pioneer F90's and i have a few bits of advice. Generally we put the BT mic at the top of the driver's side a-pillar,pointing at the driver. The mic is directional and we've found that if it's in the middle of the vehicle or elsewhere,it sometimes will pick up other background noises while driving,making it harder for the other person to hear,or it will pick up everything the other passengers say.

The factory gps antenna uses a different style of plug and the cable is not the type that can have the Pioneer's end spliced onto it. It does require line of sight but since there are so many gps sat's,the location is not terribly critical. Matt suggested on the dash,up by the temp sensor,and that has worked well for us,but the BEST location is up high on the body of the vehicle. If you don't like how that looks,down low on the windshield,there is a spot that doesn't interfere with the wipers and it can be put there,it blends in cause the whole area is black.
The sat radio antenna is a little more finicky and I strongly suggest it be put outside,either alongside the gps antenna or on the roof,just over the windshield with the cable hidden inside the windshield trim. If you center it on the vehicle,it doesn't look to bad.

Re: Grey Ghost Stereo Odyssey

I mounted my Blue tooth Mic at the top corner of the A pillar by the wind shield, its in a pretty direct path of speaking and if its not it can always be easily moved.

Re: Grey Ghost Stereo Odyssey

Ok. Everything is here and I have some doubts to my capability of getting this done. TO feel like I did something, I installed the Kicker Amp in the back. that went rather smoothly.

SO CAN YOU GUYS WALK ME THRU THE WIRING STUFF, YOU THINK???

I have the unit Pioneer F90BT.

I can handle the blutooth mic, thats a non issue.
GPS Antenna, i need to pull the instrument bezel and get it way under there near the windshield. got it.

Now here is where it gets dicey for me:

I have this mess:
http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_...R-CHY4v1-.html

then i got this thing
http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_...paign=froogle#

as well as http://www.amazon.com/dp/B000Q9UFKU/...SIN=B000Q9UFKU

oh and dont forget this> http://www.amazon.com/PAC-SWI-PS-Pio.../dp/B000AXW7SA


QUESTION: IS my OEM Sat antenna going to work with this set up?

QUESTION: where do I even start with all the wiring and interfaces. UGH.

Who is here in Denver can help??????????




OK THEN:

Re: Grey Ghost Stereo Odyssey

Out doing their own stereos. LOL

I just got finished installing my new kenwood deck in mine.

I literally just installed that PAC unit in to my WK. Plus the RCA wires in to the back of the Pioneer head unit. Match the colors of the RCA wires to the LF RF LR RRetc, The instructions should be pretty fool proof and should have all colors listed.


I dont know anything about sirius stuff.


The steering wheel controls should be easy, that one plug should plug in to the cd player, then the wires should get connected to the original pac module. (thats what my audio shop told me, my steering wheel controls are not in yet. but there should be a total of two modules needed for the steering wheel controls. )

Re: Grey Ghost Stereo Odyssey

an update: everything is installed and working. I just asked the installer to come back to adjust what some of the steering wheel controls control. thats it.

I was able to use the factory sirius antenna so no extra holes. the gps ant is up uder the dash......

all the kicker stuff is sinstalled.


not sure why, and it was well documented, I lost f/r fade. otherwise, we utilized all the factory wiring.

Re: Grey Ghost Stereo Odyssey

Nice, glad to hear it all is operating smoothly.

I'm guessing you lost f/r fade because the Kicker amp uses a summing input for the factory wiring/amp (basically sums all of the signals into one signal - the front door 6x9's are low-passed at the amp, the dash speakers are high-passed at the amp and I'm guessing the rears are a full-range signal... the Kicker amp sums these three signals into one full range signal to be used for the Kicker amp) and therefore cannot now distinguish a front a rear signal.

Re: Grey Ghost Stereo Odyssey

Questions:
  • Did the factory Sirius antenna interface with the SCC1?
  • Where is the factory Sirius antenna located (at the receiver or the amp)? I don't remember seeing it at the receiver...?

Re: Grey Ghost Stereo Odyssey

Hi Matt,

the OEM sirius box is located across from the amp in the rear passenger side.

so i bought the scc1 and the factory sat antenna plugged right into it.

then i ran new wires from the scc1 to the Pioneer CD-SB10 to interface with my pioneer and put it under the dash.
