Hey guys, just got a quick question bout wiring up my electric antenna to my headunit. Anyway the headunit has a single wire for an electric antenna while the car has 2 wires... how do I go about wiring it up? Is it just a matter of wiring the negative to a ground and the positive to the headunit?
Cheers.

Hey bro. Unsure what the go would. Depending on the colour of the wires comming of the car. But normally if there is 2 wires of car, i dare say yes one would be positve and other would be ground..

No.....one wire will be constant 12v (so the antenna has power to go down when the radio is turned off and just like a head-unit/amp, a main wire to draw its current from) the other wire will connect to your head-units' output.

Most of the units will have a green and red wire, red is connected to constant 12v, green is connected to the head unit.

Hope this helps.
