Exclamation 03 Accord, wiring harness to keep stock display and aftermarket screen powered?

I just got my system put in to my 2003 accord coupe v6 vtec and i went around to my local audio places and they told me that there is no such thing as a wiring harness that you can have both your stock unit in my case the screen and 6 disk cd changer and my deck working...its a drag because i cant see the time and my ac controls at night because only one can be powered on. do they make a wiring harness so both my display and my deck can be both used? If so where?

I have 2 other questions I need help with on here if anyone can. Message me on here, respond to this thread, email me, anything. Thanks

Metra 71-1721 let's you do that. LOC on factory speaker wires can feed an AUX input on the aftermarket HU so you can use the changer. Cool, eh?

keep hope alive is right! He told me how to do mine and it worked! I have an alpine cda-117 in the bottom pocket while retaining my navigation with all the controls as well as still being able to utilize the in dash 6cd changer, awesome!!
He is the man!!
What do you think about a memphis mc12" in a bandpass box through the rear armrest powered by memphis 600.1 with all pr series replacement speakers powered by memphis 55x4 for $1500? good deal?
btw I have a 2004 accord EXL

Okay so you should be able to use the 6 disk changer? Because my neighbor installed it and both the screen and Sony deck power on but my changer doesn't work and I can't set my clock either. Did he wire it wrong? Thanks guys by the way, been a big help.

Your neighbor didn't power the factory head unit, or use a LOC into AUX input on the Sony. Follow my recommendations and it will work.

I don't know Memphis enough to compare price vs. performance. But that price is fair for a full system. Bandpass is tough if now very well designed by the manufacturer.

What are the pros and cons to a bandpass, ported and sealed box?
I think he said this box would be a four bandpass box, does that sound right? what does it mean?
TY
