[Part 5] 2019 To 2022 Toyota RAV4 - Audio System Upgrade - The Amplifier (How To/DIY)

This video will show how to install "AudioControl" aftermarket amplifier in your 5th Gen Toyota RAV4. Some of the wiring only applies to trims equipped with the JBL premium system. I'll be using the OEM amp to provide a speaker level signal to the aftermarket amp.

For trims not equipped with JBL premium, you need to get the signal from the Head Unit and send it to the "Line Level Inputs" in the aftermarket amp, there are other videos show you how to do that.

Bear in mind, this most likely will void your sound system warranty (if there's one). So proceed only if you know what you're doing.

For comprehensive wiring diagrams of the whole audio system can be purchased and downloaded from here: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=E8Y7WCR9DNLDN

Please email at: [email protected] once you purchase it.
