The only reason I ask about the remote wire for the in dash stereo is, the manual I found online says that you need it for the RCA wires but not for the wires from your home theatre.

Do you still use the Executive home theatre that came with it?

That sub that came with it is a piece of junk, and should be used as a boat anchor

I ended up not using the RCAs or the "remote on". The in-dash unit had wires for 2 rear speakers that were unused. It's a 4x50W in dash and only the fronts were being used for the 2 Jensen speakers.

The Infinity Basslink has inputs from 4 "line level" sources, so I ran one to the wires from the Exec sub and 1 each from the rear left and rear right on the in dash unit (one is left over / extra)

So the in dash is sending the left/right rear signals and the sub is dumping everything but the lows. The exec is only sending the lows and they sound pretty good on the Basslink.

Replacing that whole entertainment system is on my long term todo list. I like that sub.

My speakers for the magnadyne dash unit were a pile of junk. You could not get it loud enough without distorting at freeway speeds. My wife would just tell me to turn it off it sounded so bad. I replaced the speakers with some Infinity 6x9s. They barely fit in the factory location but they sound great.

NICE! I have map lights in the same space as the Jensen speakers, so I didn't think about replacing them with 6x9s. The Jensen's sound great at highway speeds as long as I turn off the "LOUD" setting on the head unit, so no bass, but now the 200W Infinity covers the bass.

Not sure what make speakers are in my unit. All I know is that there are 8 of them in the ceiling. Is the setup in the Georgetown different?

My Georgetown has the speakers in the ceiling as well. They provide the surround sound for the home theater.

When I installed the Infinity Basslink, it added a subwoofer to the in dash stereo (previously it had only 2 small car stereo speakers and no sub woofer). It also replaced the 20 Watt unpowered sub-woofer that came with the home theater.
