Pros: Works as it should

Cons: Didn't need second port... maybe should be an option for less wires.

What can I say? It works and you need it to adapt Nissan's weird two-pin connector to a standard antenna plug. Would've liked it to be a little shorter as there wasn't a whole lot of room left behind the stereo with the wiring kit installed.

Pros: Works, connects easily, does what it is supposed to

Cons: Motorola connector not as tight as desired. A short strip of electrical tape makes sure it won't work loose

Bose Nissan antenna adaptor

Written by: Uncle Willie from Thomasville, GA on March 13, 2013

2003 Nissan Maxima
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Nissan Bose installation uses a two wire antenna lead on the factory radio. The actual antennas are in the glass of the rear window of a Maxima. When hooked up with the flanges aligned, the radio got poor FM reception and no AM stations. I read a review on this site about reversing the connection, so I tried that, and now the FM works great and AM is unchanged. It's anybody's guess how the factory wires these antennas, and the Bose radio that was in my car has a Clarion label on it, but it was the very finest FM radio I've ever used. I never would have replaced it if it had an USB input so I could use my iPod. The new radio is a JVC KW-NT500HDT.

Pros: It works, but it's not intuitive how to connect it.

Cons: Ambiguous instructions

Pros: connects and works as advertised

Cons: reception diminished, might not be the adapter's fault but....

It wired BACKWARDS

Written by: ChrisZeeshutterbug from Louisiana on January 2, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

After hooking up the stereo, and the antenna (with the adapter clip oriented properly) I got zero AM stations by scanning and one by manual tuning. OK, so I heard most aftermarket stereos are poor on AM. On FM all of the regular stations came in on scan fine, but no weaker stations at all. I drove around a few days like that, but after a second thought I did more reserch on the receiver and the antenna adapter. On on site I found a person who swore that thw antenna adapter on Nissans is wired backwards and works much better in reverse. OK, I was good at taking the dash apart now, so I went for it. it IS TRUE!. When the adapter is put in with the clip on the smooth side (backwards) I get 6 AM stations (still none on scan) and EVERY FM dial position has a station on it (with scan)!

Pros: Works well when plugged in backwards

Cons: Wired bacwards

2007 Nissan Pathfinder
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The product is fine performance-wise, but the description should include that it will not work on a Nissan Pathfinder. There is a metal heating duct (or a brace-not sure) behind the radio unit, which is bypassed by the stock antennae cable's L-shaped design. This adapter cable, when plugged into the radio, does not allow the radio to fully seat into its proper place. You will need an L-shaped connector for the pathfinder.

Pros: other than the design issue, it works fine!

Cons: Does not fit 2007 model Pathfinder.

2001 Infiniti QX4
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This adapter worked fine for connecting the new Kenwood KDC-348U to Infiniti's proprietary antenna connector, but I have to wonder why they had to provide both male and female radio-end connectors. Yes, I know, some aftermarket radios have male leads, some have female; but, this configuration makes it just a bit harder to find enough room under the dash. I zip-tied the whole thing together to shortened the overall length and to keep that extra lead from just flopping around. A lot of extra wire and hardware just to avoid having to inventory 2 different adapters - I would design this with a single, male end- connector for the radio and provide a female-female sleeve for those radios that have a male-end antenna connection.
