Hello all, I just bought a 97 SHO
about a month or two ago. I love the car, it has BALLS! I already put some flomaster 40 series on and it sounds amazing. What doesn't sound amazing, however, is the sound system. It isn't bad for a stock system, but isn't good enough. So, I am going to replace all of the speakers with some quality units. To power them, I will use a 4-channel amp. Now, here comes the kicker... I fried my factory amp! So, I don't get any sound to the speakers, but the radio still tunes in to stations, just no sound. Otherwise, I would have just used a line level convertor to hook up an amp. But now I can't do that. So, here is what I'm wondering, is there a way to completely bypass the factory amp? I mean completely take it out of the mix. I will be running new wire from my new 4-channel amp to the new speakers, so I won't need the factory speaker wiring. Can I toss all of it? If I cut the speaker leads that come out of the bigger black connector from the RCU
, where will I get my signal from? I want to use an un-amplified signal. Is there a spot where I can get completely un-amp'd signal for my line level convertor? Pretty much, I want to get rid of the factory amp, and use an aftermarket 4-channel amp to power my aftermarket speakers. So please help me out fellahs (and ladies). Thanks!
