premium audio stereo in ex civic

I tookover my nephews 2007 civic ex since hes a marine and bought a new one in SD. he had an aftermarket stereo unit installed but i wanted to go OEM. I pulled a head unit from a junk yard to install but its a premium audio unit from a coupe where as im trying to install in an ex sedan that did not have premium unit. once connected there is no sound. whats my issue and how can i fix. sorry if there is a thread already about this i couldnt find anything and a new user. Thanks!

The premium units came with an amplifier that your son's car did not come with from the factory. Best bet is to get a radio that is NONpremium. Getting the premium radio to work will be labor intensive and most likely not worth your time.

Good Luck!

AND make sure that any OEM radio that you buy has the factory security code with it! Otherwise it's just a door stop.
