I have a 2010 PS197. NO factory stereo.

Looking in the boat I see where it goes and found the plugs for it.

My question if I get the clarion CMD6 that normally comes factory will it just plug and play or will I need to get a wiring harness from mastercraft to clarion, and if so what would the wiring harness part number be or where can I find it cheap.

Need some help.
This is what I am seeing for the stereo under the dash and what is running out of the stereo.
Can someone at least get em a picture of how your CMD6 is installed/wires run?
I know all the wires are run for the speakers, so I would addume all the power and such is run for the stereo. Just need some sort of wiring harness rather than cutting all the ends off from the factory.

If you check with your dealer, they will have a pigtail that they can order that will go from the factory connector to Clarion connectors.

A dealer stated that As for the CMD6 being installed in your boat. All of the speaker wires are run in every boat (even if a stereo is not installed at the factory). The stereo deck would need to have the rest of the wiring run for it (power, ground, antenna, etc). It is all pretty easy to do as you essentially just need to run wire from your battery (power and ground) to the deck and then another wire from the ignition switch that will tell the stereo to be on or off with the boat.

To me it looks like those are all prewired even the ground/power and such. just need the Pigtail/wire harness. I would rather plug and play if I can purchase the proper harness/pigtail but cant find any info about it.

Call Lex at Rambo marine. He is a parts guru and a damn nice guy. Just tell him what you are trying to do and he will be able to get something worked out.

Looks like you need the male side of a 12 pin deutsch connector. You can find them here:

Confirm your factory wiring pinouts and start crimping on the stereo harness.

UC - did you guys dump no wake since it looks like you got a 197?

Willyt - I guess my user name is a bit deceiving. My brother and I purchased a '10 197tt this year, prior to that we had a '01 196CC.
We are both alumni of UC and the ucwaterski team, I have used this username on other sites like Skifly.com and such, ever since I helped create and own ucwaterski.com website back in 2004.
The actual team at this time is still involved with No wake.

ah, yea i know their current president pretty well. I know they've had issues with no wake (as most people i know have had). MC might be smart to start sponsoring them, as well as my alma matter Miami...

Didn't read the rest of the thread, but you now know what a lot of us to. Rex is a great guy with lots of knowledge. I've done a tone of business with Lex and it's funny, when I call he knows my last name and address without looking in the computer. :( I buy to much stuff lol.

Wish that were true on my last truck install. Alpine had issues with the iPod touch. Sounded great when it wasn't cutting out. I like the look and size of that PDX-5 amp though.

What about adding the drivers stereo remote to a stock deck? What/where should I buy this and should the wires already be present to plug in to the remote?

Mine pod worked flawlessly with the Alpine until an ex-friend sent a 2' wall of water into the boat from a seapoo...........:D
