About the Metra 99-7809B Dash and Wiring Kit
You bought a 2004-08 Acura TSX — great car, but its console makes it impossible to upgrade the factory radio. Metra's integration adapter allows you to install an aftermarket single- (2" tall) or double-DIN (4" tall) stereo in the Acura's dash panel, while maintaining all heating, ventilation, and air conditioning controls. You'll lose your Acura's clock and cabin temperature display at the top of the dash. You'll use the clock on your new radio, and you'll see the temperature on the climate control display included in this package.
The adapter is a perfect match for the color, texture, and contours of your Acura dash.
The package includes a harness that plugs directly from your Acura into the Axxess ASWC-1 adapter (not included), allowing you to retain your steering wheel audio controls with a new car stereo. Please read the instructions from Metra before attempting the installation, particularly the warnings about disconnecting the battery.
