    I just purchased a Cerwin-Vega Mobile VPAS10 Powered Active Subwoofer.
    My question is will the Metra 70-1761, and 71-1761 Radio Wiring Harness work with my stock HU? I ordered them on Amazon yesterday and now it says that this harness will not fit my 2019. ( it is not the JBL package) can anyone confirm if I purchased the correct harness, and if it is wrong can you tell me the correct harness to purchase. Thanks!

    You did order the correct one. 2019 non-JBL used what you purchased. 2020 is different

    Another question, I also purchased a 2-Channel Speaker to RCA Converter That has 4 wires for the harness, but there are 8 speaker wires for 4 speakers (i think) How does that work?

    Just get audio signal from your front speakers. Rear speakers have very little bass

    Been working this afternoon on the harness. Can you tell by the picture if it looks correct?

    You can actually forget about using the purple/green harness since your not doing anything there. I recommend getting some tesa tape too, wrap the harness with that to keep the wires together and prevent snags.

    Yeah what they said lol. Never even crossed my mind. Set the purple/green piece aside and save it for later. It’s useless in this scenario

    I made that mistake just like 2 weeks ago when I had to put my OEM headunit back in with a lc2i... I wired up the rear speaker harness only to realize I didnt even need it.

    Just wondering how everything went with the Cerwin Vega install— How did it all work out?

    I hate to be "that guy" and/or jinx anything, but if anything goes wrong it will that PYLE piece.

    Avoid that company whenever possible.

    pbandnv, The install went well. Defiantly added some much needed thump. I like having the volume limiter at arm's length for adjustments on the fly. I wonder how different it would sound to have been to install under the passenger seat instead of the driver seat...
