Used when replacing stock Bose stereo in my Maxima. You will need it! Plug in ease of install. A little bulky, I had a lot of wiring behind my stereo to push back in and this antenna wire is pretty thick. Has a secondary port for adding other equipment... which I didnt need.

Pros: Works as it should

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

Steve from San Diego, CA on 7/21/2013

2003 Infiniti G35
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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

Cons: Longer than necessary, IMO

Bose Nissan antenna adaptor

Uncle Willie from Thomasville, GA on 3/13/2013

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

JV from San Jose, CA on 1/10/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

it connected fine. from some of the reviews below I guess I can't complain. I've always heard that reception is diminished with aftermarket decks but wow. A lot of the stations are now almost inaudible. But then again the particular stereo purchased was not for it's radio awesomeness.

Pros: connects and works as advertised

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

It wired BACKWARDS

ChrisZeeshutterbug from Louisiana on 1/2/2013

2001 Nissan Maxima
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

needed this. perfect

clayr from wilmington, nc on 1/31/2012

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.

Can it get any easier...

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Several years ago the factory power antenna failed and a mechanic replaced it with a fixed mast. I didn't realized he changed the whole cable so I already had a standard antenna feed and didn't need this adapter. I assume it would have worked fine.

1990 Nissan Hardbody
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The product works fine, but like another reviewer I wish it had only the needed radio connector for a more customized solution. I needed the male connector and now have the extra female connector to insulate and secure. Worked fine for my 1990 Nissan D21 pickup and Sony DSX-S200X.

Why the extra lead?

Steve M. from Phoenix, AZ on 7/2/2011

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.

Pros:

Cons:

works good

David S from Avenel NJ on 4/17/2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Works good, two are needed. After both were delivered, the bag has a number for both adapters as a kit. Why did I pay for two. I would think the kit would have been cheaper.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I appreciate that this was complimentary, but it wouldn't make a solid snap connection, so I used electrical tape to have better piece of mind that it wouldn't separate from the OEM antenna harness. Made in China.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This adaptor's contacts had to be reversed in order to work in 2004 Nissan Maxima. If you hook up the adaptor and radio does not catch any station, unplug the 2-pin prong and reverse it.
