Will this work for Australian cars too?

Yes

Well, it works very well, but then it ends up changing. The manufacturer's amplifier is even more so it's installed
[ BILLY  May 21, 2022 ]
Q
If you use this, can you still utilize the subwoofer output on the head unit to add additional subwoofers?

This is supposed to be the forum to ask a tech support advisor...right? So why do we have to ask all over again to someone else?
[ Christopher  May 03, 2020 ]
A
You will want to contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat to discuss compatibility with your factory system. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and see if this will integrate. If it does not, then they will also be able to discuss other options with you.
