Post by ksadad »

2015 Outback LTD w/Harmon Kardon
Kenwood DMX906s
Have RR, SU2 Harness, USB adapter, & Antenna adapter

1) Do I need to use the Kenwood microphone or will Subaru Microphone work?
2) Can I use Subaru satellite antenna or do i have to use aftermarket antenna?
3) Confirming that the Brown and the Blue/Yellow wire from Kenwood Harness not used.
4) Confirming that Pink and Yellow/Black wires not used on SU2 Harness.

Anything special I need to know with combination that is not shown in instructions.

1) Do I need to use the Kenwood microphone or will Subaru Microphone work? Kenwood mic needs to be used
2) Can I use Subaru satellite antenna or do i have to use aftermarket antenna? Aaftermarket antenna is used
3) Confirming that the Brown and the Blue/Yellow wire from Kenwood Harness not used. Correct they are not used
4) Confirming that Pink and Yellow/Black wires not used on SU2 Harness. Pink connects to the Pink of the radio. required for Carplay and AndroidAuto.

Anything special I need to know with combination that is not shown in instructions. Also be sure to update the Kenwoods firmware directly after the installation. It is required for proper functionality

Thank you.
No Pink wire to connect...carplay works.
OEM dual USB port does not work with Carplay.
I spliced into coax siriusxm oem antenna and it works great. Kind of a pain to splice the coax though.
Everything works except for the radio antenna. Can't get the powered antenna (on back window) to work. Trying to find the wire in the oem wire harness to tap into.

Starlink isnt equipped on all vehicles even though the radio says it when powered up. if you dont have a SOS button in the vehicle then you dont have it. if you do then it is a module that is attached to the center stack that you reove with the factory radio. the module would need to be tucked behind the radio and the wire is in the 8 pin connector.

BillR antenna fix worked perfectly.
Have the power antenna and preamp going to the Blue at the headunit. Snipped the blue at the 6 pin harness to the car.
I have great reception now. Thanks BillR
