Our take on the HELIX EPC5 Easy Plug Cable

by Buck Pomerantz
HELIX

Plug a sonic upgrade into your car's system directly

Here's a way to upgrade your factory stereo without cutting any wires or losing features like your steering wheel audio controls. First you plug a HELIX vehicle-specific adapter harness into your car's audio system. Then, this 5-meter (16.4') EPC5 cable allows you to connect a HELIX Blue B ONE, B TWO, or B FOUR amplifier directly into your factory system, adding the impact and detail that only an outboard amp can provide.

You can also use this EPC5 cable to connect a HELIX P-DSP signal processor to your system, giving you extensive control over the overall sound. Warranty: 60 days.

Note: You must identify your vehicle to order a HELIX EPC5 Plug and Play cable online if you want the correct vehicle-specific harness. Or, if you prefer, call an Advisor at 1-888-955-6000 to make sure you get the harness that works in your vehicle.

Disappointed

Written By Jerry, Hayward, CA on Friday, May 17, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Paid for a professional install. This harness along with the vehicle specific harness was used to hook up a Helix 4 channel amp. Sound quality was terrible. Had to change to a high/low convertor then use RCA cables to the amp which greatly improved the sound. Had to "eat" the cost of this as everything was imbedded in the floor and would have cost extra to remove. Sadly, Crutchfield technical support was lacking. Technician said I ordered wrong harness, but product information disputed his statement.
Pros:
Easy hookup to factory head unit
Cons:
Engine noise, poor sound quality.

where does this plug into on the factory radio? does the cars wire harness plug into the "HELIX EPC5" then into the factory radio or does the "EPC5" plug jnto the factory radios cd changer port? [ Adam  Jun 15, 2014 ]

  • I returned my cable is it was not compatible with the bose sound system on my 2012 mazda 3 -- I checked at the amplifier under the passengers side front seat and at the back of the stereo, none of the connections were the same. If you have a non bose system, I would think it would plug into the back of the stereo. But if you have a bose system, just return it. [ CLINTON   Jun 17, 2014 ]
my 2012 Tacoma is the base model the factory stereo type A did not come with speakers in the back ( behind the seats) just two in each door. when I turn the fade control to the back I have no sound. can I get a plug for the back of the stereo so I can have speakers in back? the fade control works. I ask, some say yes some say no. PLEASE HELP do you have the plug I need? THX, MITCHELL [ mitchell  Dec 16, 2013 ]

  • Thanks for your question Mitchell. Please contact an Advisor by phone or chat to discuss adding speakers to your vehicle. They will be able to help figure out what adapters and/or wiring you will need to accomplish this. [ Jeff Staff  Dec 16, 2013 ]
