2010 Tundra w/JBL Non-Nav OEM Camera

Post by System48 » Sat Nov 03, 2018 11:11 pm

My setup is with the camera in the rear view mirror and I'll already be running a new line to the radio for the video signal. My question is, do I need to run a reverse line connection since it's not in my factory Non-Nav harness connections?

I'm assuming I do, second question. Is it ok to connect the reverse line from the Maestro to the new head unit and splice in the new reverse line there or should I leave the Maestro reverse connection disconnected?

You do NOT need to run a new reverse wire. We generate this output for you to make your install a little bit easier. All this is intended for is to tell the radio to switch to the backup camera input when we see you in reverse. It should still work like you need it to without any additional wiring (other than running the video signal down to the new radio, of course).

Thanks for the quick reply.

Another question on this setup. I'll be using the Pioneer W8400NEX and was wondering how it handles speaker configuration given the Maestro connection is only to the Front pre-outs. Also, Pioneer has an option to Enable/Disable the Sub-woofer, does this setting have any effect with the Maestro setup?

The JBL system only uses 2 channels of input to the oem amplifier (a left and a right). From there, the amplifier digitally controls all of the individual speakers. Because of this, turning the sub on/off will not affect the sound.

Thanks again for the quick response. I wasn't sure how much the Maestro was doing in controlling the amp since fade/balance work with the rears.

Do you know if the JBL amp is already doing time correction? I always get weird results when trying to do the auto time correction with the Pioneer HU.

I don't think the JBL amp does any kind of time alignment. You're going to have a hard time doing that because there are only two channels from the radio that feed the amplifier (Front left and front right). If you do time alignment on the deck, all you can really set are those two channels.
