Does anyone have the wiring diagram for the factory installed Clarion in a 2005 197? My buddy is trying to install some tower speakers and amp and needs the wiring diagram. Also anyone know if there is a preamp output on this unit?

Thanks in advance

One of the many great things about the way that MC builds a boat is that the wiring harness is complete with everything you need, whether you order with all of the options or just some. So, if your friend were to lay on the floor at the drivers feet and look up at the wiring harness, he will find wires that indicate exactly what they are used for in hooking up the stereo, complete with bullet type wire connectors ready to go. As far as the amp, there is a preamp output jack on the head unit.
As far as the tower speakers go, depending on the tower he has, you will find a hole already drilled in the bottom of the front tower foot, where it meets the fiberglass. You may have to loosen the foot to find it and drill the hole through the fiberglass to run the wires, but otherwise it is ready to go.

Good Luck.
