  1. Chetan, technically you could connect your 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer amplifier turn on wire to a switched 12v+ power source. That way your amplifier is on whenever your 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer is on and off whenever your 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer is off. Run a primary wire from the back of your radio to your steering column and use the light green wire in the ignition switch harness. This light green wire will provide a switched power source for your 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer stereo. Hope this helps. Good luck with your 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer stereo installation.

  4. Courtney, a 1-din car stereo will work as long as you get a 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer 1-DIN stereo dash kit. Here is the 1-din stereo dash kit you need:

  5. I just bought a 1 din car stereo for my fiance for christmas. She has a 2008 lancer and wanted a stereo she could control her iphone and ipod with. I went to start her car afterward and it looks like she might have a 2 din bay instead of a 1 din bay. Can you tell me will the 1 din work, or do I need to look for a 2 din model? Thanks.
