HELIX EPC5 Easy Plug Cable
5-meter factory system interface cable works with a HELIX vehicle-specific harness
Our take on the HELIX EPC5 Easy Plug Cable by Crutchfield's Buck Pomerantz
Plug a sonic upgrade directly into your car's system
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.

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 ]
2 answers 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 ]
I have a 00 Eldorado with Bose, is there any way to get aftermarket head unit and subs without rewiring everything. [ Lemarr Feb 26, 2014 ]
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 Dec 16, 2013 ] Staff
