I just ordered a Kenwood DPX-701 and I am wondering if anyone knows what wiring adapter to use to hook up to factory wiring harness? Also where to get it?

There are 2 companies that make the harness that plugs into factory scosche or metra, here are the part numbers:
Scosche: NN03
Metra:70-7550

You should be able to pick it up at any bestbuy or circuit city. Also check any local sound and security shops!

Re: Kenwood DPX-701 - what/where to get wiring adapter

Mind if I ask how much you go tthe head unit for and where you got it? I was looking at the same deck myself for the USB interface and the upcoming bluetooth adapter.

Does it require a new bracket or trim ring to fit?

So all I need for the install is the wiring harness? If thats the case I may order from a non-Crutchfield source and save some money...

Hey Rdicky, would you let me know how your experience with Salectronics goes. If you end up getting a good product I'm going to order the DPX501 from them. I have read mixed reviews on the internet about them so I'm alittle cautious.

Received the new Kenwood HU yesterday. Everything looks great. Quite a radio, may take me a lifetime to learn how to use all of it!!! Lookin' forward to hooking up a USB drive to see how it works!!! Should have it installed in a few days....

thanks for the harness offer, I already purchased on in anticipation of the install...

Installed the Kenwood DPX-701 and it works great. Looks great too. I will post some pics here when I get a chance. Had to reset the airbag light because it started blinking!! Did that based on instructions in another post....that was a lifesaver!! Wiring harness did not have a black ground wire so I grounded it to the radio bracket. Seems to work fine. I used a wiring adapter I purchased from Best Buy. Teh radio has a USB slot in the front so I tried out a flash drive with mp3's and wma's and the songs played just fine.

Order, shipping etc were all fine. No problems from the Internet retailer.

I wanted to get the 701 from crutchfield but it was about $450 so I was going to settle for the 501. However if I can get the 701for $289 from saletronic I'm all over that :D

Looking forward to some pics.

I like the Kenwood DPX-701for the USB also. I have a 80gb laptop HD in a very small usb case. It's just begging to be my music box.
