Can any of this stuff be removed?

Recommended Posts

Long story short... My JBL Black box in my 07 VLX has quit working. So I bought a Fusion head unit to install. I like the fusion H/U as an option because I can dock the iPod and it has 4 zone control built in. This spring I plan on rewiring and cleaning up the mess of wires that is happening with the amps. While doing that I would like to remove as much of the components that had to do with the JBL black box as possible. What I am unsure of is whether or not this stuff can be removed without effecting the MUX controls by the wheel.

The components in question are:

1: the Sirius box (quite confident I can remove this)

2: the REXW-13 Adapter

3: whatever the heck the connections are in between those two

Removing the JBL unit makes any of the remotes, including any helm integration, obsolete. So yes, 1, 2, and 3 can go.

Those jbl black boxes are a POS....Not sure how many we went trhu while under warranty....When the warranty stopped, jettisoned the jbl.

You can still buy them, either on ebay or other sites, should you go that route.

Thanks very much! What is the middle box/wire? The one with all the white wires and single black wire.

It is quite old technology to be replacing. No hookups. s***ty transom remote. No Bluetooth. I am going to quite enjoy the Fusion H/U.

Its the interface unit for 2 or more wired JBL remotes. Only good with that JBL unit and remotes.
