    The bermuda triangle of aftermarket radio install

    I just recently purchased a 2005 magnum rt and am replacing the factory 6 disc cd changer and nav system with an aftermarket unit and thought i was going to be ok but alas after buying the wiring harness and hooking the unit up i have no sound!!!!! Ugh i have the boston audio package and need help from anyone that has experience navigating this obviously complex problem. Thank you in advance for your knowledge and help.

    I'm sorry it's so late, just ran across your post.
    I love Mopar, but I can't understand why they would over-engineer the audio system the way they did. Pretty much all of the controls are operated by CANBUS commands. What you need is a "PAC C2R-CHY4", it will interpret the commands and allow use of your factory speakers and amp. I did the install on my 06 charger rt with Boston acoustic package.
