SWI-RC Steering Wheel Control Interface
The PAC Audio SWI-RC steering wheel control interface answers the question, “Can I change out my factory radio and keep the steering wheel controls I know and love?” The answer is YES for many Alpine, JVC, Kenwood, Pioneer, and other brands of car stereo receivers. All the technology you need is waiting for you at Audio Express / Quality Auto Sound.
Think about the possibilities! You ditch your boring factory radio, add a high-end CD receiver, a DVD head unit or even in-dash navigation, and you still have the controls mounted at your fingertips by adding the SWI-RC! No fumbling with an unfamiliar user interface in the middle of the dash, no long seconds with your eyes off the road. If this is the issue stopping you from getting a cooler car stereo head unit than the factory ever dreamed of, the wait is over.
The experts at Audio Express / Quality Auto Sound can tell you if this is the correct interface for the radio you have selected. Generally speaking, the aftermarket radio needs a wired remote input (3.5mm headphone style jack or Blue/Yellow wire) to be compatible. This might be a port or wire on the back of the radio labeled W/R, REM, Wired Remote, Remote, Rem Cont, or similar.
The world of aftermarket integration has gotten a lot wider with the addition of the PAC Audio SW-IRC.
