    What kind of plug is this?

    Have a newish VW that I'm adding an amp (speaker level in) and underseat powered sub to for some slightly better sound.

    I'd grabbed a shitty eBay inline amp for it to try out which was ok, but I'm ditching it for a Sony XMS-400D. The eBay one has a good little piggyback wiring loom I want to reuse and add on to.

    It has a plug on the end I can't find. Looks pretty common, 20 way 2 row 25.4mm wide X 8ish mm high. No ID markings at all. To avoid chopping and redoing, can anyone tell me what kind of plug it is and where to grab a set?

    Finding an exact clip in matching socket might be a bit hard from a picture alone. But it looks pretty close to fitting a dual row 0.1" spaced header so something like this:

    ...would probably work. Not really easy to connect to though as it's designed to be PCB mounted. Even if you found the exact match for the end you have, it's likely to be PCB mount only.

    Thanks, looking like a chop and fitting some sort of Molex connector will be simpler.

    Looks to me like a head unit plug. Grey Pair, white pair, green pair, purple pair are the speaker pairs.

"The new model is something like two thousand cubic inches, developing two hundred brake-horsepower at four thousand revolutions per minute on a magnesium frame with two styrofoam seats and a total curb weight of exactly two hundred pounds."

    Thats what got me thinking that it might be, hence suggesting supercheap as they sell the iso adaptors and it would be easy to take the wire in and compare to them

    Yeah, given that the other plugs are a pretty common headunit plug (very similar to the FoMoCo stuff), would not be surprised if you can find an ISO adapter for it.

    I had a look for ISO adapters but gave up and did a chop and solder instead
