How to get your Toyota active sub working with an aftermarket radio

Recommended Posts

This isn't really a question but more a little info.


So after hours of troubleshooting I finally cracked the code.


For anyone wanting to get their factory active subwoofer working with their aftermarket head unit DO NOT BUY AN ADAPTER. This is false information that is a waste of money.


You need to look at your wiring coming from your radio harness adapter and you will see the yellow power wire. You need to splice this into pin number 9 when looking at the back of the stock 10 pin radio plug. I will add a photo which shows the pin allocation for the stock radio. 


You want the wire from pin 9 on cn701-1


That's it your sub will work now.

Think it is an optional extra on some models and comes with others for the gen 7. It's in the boot in the plastic trim at the back of the rear seats.
