Default Hello! im new

Hello, I have an 04 accord sedan lx. I was wondering if/how can I connect the aux adapter and an amp/subwoofer. Also whats the best aux adapter I get for a good price, I don't want to order something install it and have it give me white noise or something. Please help

welcome!

the AUX adapters come at a price, and for the 2004 your best bet is a replacement head unit using a kit from Metra.
Metra Online

A new head unit also provides modern features such as bluetooth, ipod, usb, HD Radio, SAT Radio, as well as an AUX input. I like Alpine head units. JVC and Clarion are also decent companies.
you'll also need a wire harness adapter: http://www.metraonline.com/part/70-1721
and Metra recommends the lower pocket be replaced as well: http://www.metraonline.com/part/88-00-7803


If you're dead set on an interface, they are sold by these vendors:
PAC Audio
USA Spec
GROM Audio
Visit their sites, enter your vehicle info, and browse. Avoid any FM modulator solution and insist on a hard-wired one (no hiss). They cost as much as a new head unit, though the install kits aren't cheap either.

How can I purchase from Metra? And do you know if I have to replace the lower pocket with that head unit?

Just search for the model numbers on the Web, sold by many stores. A local shop can order for you as well.

The instructions for the kit say to replace the pocket, but maybe it isn't necessary.
