Question First Post Here - D90 Audio Wiring and Advice

Have posted a couple of times on RN - with no response. Hoping to find assistance and offer same on other issues here.



Have a 1997 D-90 Wagon - has a clarion amp and a aftermarket head unit. Replacing faulty unit with a Clarion CD. The old (pioneer) seems to be wired through the factory amp.

Can anyone advise the wattage of the factory (clarion) amp?

Is it better to bypass and use new head unit power?

Does someone have the audio system wiring diagram? Thanks!

Yeah you can bypass the amp, if I had time/money and really cared enough to do it I would try to remove the entire radio/amp/wiring and replace it with my own componets. I think new factory head units offer sufficent power depending on your requirements.

there is some good information in the FAQ, no diagrams but there is enough information to figure out what does what. ALso you may want to consider mounting your CD player vertical in the cubby I think this is an issue with most CD players.

Audio Wiring

Thanks for that data! Perhaps the pin outs will be enough.

I am replacing the Pioneer (prev owner rigged in) with a Clarion that is 55x4 watts. I know I can just connect the line level outputs from it to the wiring in the console as is and use the Clarion (OEM) amp. I was hoping someone knew the wattage so I could make an educated decision.

I do intend to change more of the system out in the future but was wanting to just replace the head unit while I have it apart. I am replacing the floor bolts (stainless), carpet sections, shifter plate etc. . .
