ThAnKm3LaT3R posted a topic in General Audio - Can't find a category for your question? Ask here.Hi all, My dad recently got a 2016 GMC Sierra 1500. We took the system out of his old truck and we are now trying to install it in this new one. It is just a very simple setup with 2 amps 1 for the sub and one for the mids. We don't want to change out the headunit or factory amp we just want to add to they system he already has. What we are unsure of is what color wires go to the door speakers and which ones go to the factory sub. If anyone has done anything like this please let me know what wires you used it would be greatly appreciated. I would attach pictures of what I am working with but I am n()()b and haven't figured that out yet.
Ok, So my buddy has a 2011 f150 XLT supercrew truck. He wants to keep his factory headunit since it has ford's SYNC. He wants to add an amp for his highs and add an amp for 2 kicker 10s for underneath back seat. Question is... What is best way to add the RCAs needed for the amps? I kno he will need some sort of line output converter. But should he order 3 2channel converters or a 4 channel and a 2 channel?? Next is where to hook up the converters? right before the speaker or behind head unit? He is trying to do this for as cheap as possible.. Please keep this in mind. Also, if anyone knows the factory speaker ratings, that would be really helpful.. Thanks guys..

Ask here.so i just got a new car and i dont want to replace the head unit or run wires all the way to the front other than the power wire cuz theres so many dang panels haha. my amp has speaker level inputs to use instead of rcas for factory head units. so my question is can i just run them to my factory amp which is in the trunk rather than to the speakers on either side of the car or head unit?
Hello all, I'm sorry if this has been answered a million times already, but I'm desperate for some knowledge. No luck finding the specific answer i'm looking for. I'm using a line out converter since I want to keep my factory headunit and install an amp and sub.. Anyways, I'm thinking the best place to tie in the converter would be anywhere between the factory sub and amp. The factory amp is rated at 315 watts so do I need a converter that will match that wattage? I ask because I seen a converter rated at 300 watts (150 per channel) Also since the converter is 2-channel and the factory amp only has 1 speaker output (right?) where would I tie in the other channel of the converter, to use the full potential of the converter?thanks
