Peugeot 206 GTI

Damian's Adventures in Stereo

It has only just begun but this is what I have so far.

Sony CDX-L570X single CD player.
Pioneer TS-C1620 16cm component speakers with separate crossover in the standard front location.

Tweeters also fit in behind standard grilles to maintain standard appearance.

Front doors are also fitted with stick on sound deadening.
Sony stereo install is straight forward. Removal of standard Eurovox is easy. 4x 4mm allen keys to release standard stereo.

Integrate wiring of new stereo using supplied wiring instructions to the cars existing loom. (MMC's note: see below)

Peugeot owners manual also details factory loom colours and functions. Integration of new stereo should be easy and straight forward if care is taken.

Note: Eurovox stereo has the facility for illumination when lights are turned on, but there is no wire for it in the factory loom which runs to it) People who wish to retain the factory stereo would also be happy to know this.

If your new stereo has an input for illumination or if you wish to make your factory Eurovox illuminate in the way it should when headlights are turned on you will need to track down where to connect to in the loom and run a new wire to the stereo. My new stereo does not have this function so I did not worry but it would be easy to find. I would look at instrument panel brightness adjusting potentiometer for the required voltage to tap into. (+12VDC when lights are on, 0VDC when lights are off)

Stalk controls: Eurovox unit is hard wired to stalk controller. Can be disconnected under dash prior to removal of stereo. Autoleads (UK based company) make interfaces to work with Sony headunits and factory stalk controllers... But I was unable to integrate this in my car. I will probably just remove factory stalk or fit Sony genuine item at a later date.

I attempted to fit the supposed correct item for my car a Autoleads PC9-123 but it did not work. It appears as though the stalks and car loom wiring are very different between UK and Australia.

Speakers: The Pioneer front speakers are a direct replacement and fit perfectly in the stock locations. (Plastic at rear of stock brackets needs to be cut out due to larger magnet size.) It easy enough to remove door trims. Requires removal of 4 hex screws... Door trims pull off easily after removal of screws as they just have cheap clips (which break easily) Take care when reinstalling door trim as these clips break easily if not lined up exactly.

Sound deadening: The stick on sound deadening does improve things a little but does not cure the rattles and vibrations when you turn it up a lot. The spray on sound deadening is worth the time and money.

Miscellaneous: When fitting a new Stereo to the Peugeot you will also need to buy a Euro adaptor for the antenna lead. European car antennas are different to standard Australian ones.

Long term plans: I would really love a Pioneer OEL display head unit, a decent 4 channel amp and a custom made rear parcel tray with 7x10's. Proper spray on sound deadening would also be nice. But for now I will make do...

If anyone has any specific questions I would be happy to help (If I can)

(MMC's Note: Damian's been putting in a lot of effort to try and figure out what's the story with getting an adapter to work with the Audio Stalk fitted to Australian 206's. He's gone through the Audiolead ones (as well as toasting one whilst trying to figure out how it works) and is now looking at the In car Development's one a SON13PT). acenter>
