Default Stereo adapter help

Hi everyone,

Sorry if this is already a thread - but I'm getting super confused and need help buying an adapter for my new HU.

I bought a Kenwood DMX5020BTS, and I've got a 2015 manual 370z, no bose speakers.
I took all the trim off and got to the oem HU and noticed needed an adapter....Duh
Put all the panels back and started researching. I've found one fitting kit but it has all the face panels which I don't need, and trying to find just the wire is difficult.

First HU install so it's probably my fault for not really understanding! Any help would be greatly appreciated though!!

This is what I've found so far but only need the wire! searching just the wire brings me with loads of different car brands.


Thanks
Nick

I ordered the kit on Crutchfield.com and it came with everything needed for the installation I recommend using their kit. The wire can be sold with their installation kit or sold separate.

I was just browsing on their site and found this section on complete packages.
https://www.crutchfield.com/car/solu...itfinder.aspx?

They don't have my HU listed there.

I then found this:
https://www.crutchfield.com/p_120707...g-Harness.html

Would this be suitable??

Thanks

Crutchfield is right in my back yard! We get the luxury of their return and scratch and dent section. I’ve got JL Audio stealth box in my truck and two Pioneer double din radios in my truck and Z from them.

In most cases that adapter should match up to the wire colors on your aftermarket radio. If you can solder and heat shrink that’s best. If not butt splices will work.
