I need technical help with your px6 I was hoping you could help. I have a 2017 ram 1500 Laramie with auto A/C with alpine stereo and subwoofer. I replaced all my speakers, and  bypassed the factoy amplifier using a specific T-harness, and maestro unit by iDatlink (the link is below)  this allows me to connect directly to an aftermarket amplifier and Maestro unit ( kenwood XR600-6DSP)  allowing me to keep my factory headunit so I can retain all vehicle systems. This system I installed worked flawlessly and sounded fantastic. After alot of thought I decided to install a tesla style headunit, once connected everything worked except all the audio, the Headunit has rca outputs for external amplifiers but the kenwood amp has no rca inputs. The kenwood amp, t-harness and Maestro unit were all designed to work together to bypass the amp. The amp connects through the T-harness so I can't use the Px6's rca outputs. Would it be possable to used the same headunit but use the wire harness deaigned for the trunk with no amplifer since I bypassed the amp in my original deaign, as of now the store will not allow me to return this, so I am trying to salvage this.

Did you check to verify if the idatalink maestro is compatible with that android unit?
