Does anyone have the wiring schematics for the 2 plugs that go into the Bose amp? I have replaced the amp with an Alpine unit and want to make sure the +'s and -'s for the speakers are correct. Also, has anyone hooked up the spare tire sub to an aftermarket amp? It has 2 sets of leads. Strange.....:confused:

It has two sets of leads, because that's the cheap way of getting both left and right channels to it. Dual voice coil in the woofer.

Don't have access to the service manual on this computer, so I'll get the pinouts later, unless someone else is faster!

Thanks for the info. Could I just run the two rear channels in parallel with the rear speakers one side to each side of the woofer?

Done so far:
1.Polk Audio 6x9's in the front doors
2.Alpine 6.5's in the rear doors
3.Alpine 360 watt 4 channel amp in stock Bose location utilizing stock bracket-(ultra stealth)
4. Pac adapter for aftermarket XM commander and Lowrance 500c navigation unit for Mp3's
5. Pac adapter for RCA's out.

So far it sounds GREAT!

I am not an audiophile that has to have the "bump". I just thought the Bose system sounds HORRIBLE.....

If your amp is stable to 1 ohm you can. It drives the stock amp nuts--it will clip very very early. Subs are more than bump, my wife cranks up shania and the bass guitar is amazing. I think it gives it depth as well.
Be warned though, amps don't care for paralelled speakers--especially if one of them is 2 ohms.

Hello Larry. I did use the Pac Oem1 for the RCA'a but I was trying to use the connectors at the back so that I would not need to run new wires to the door speakers. The Oem1 goes at the head unit and the RCS'a are run to the back from there. With the picture sent by Jaak everything is wired correctly! I just stripped back the wires and soldered new leads on the existing harness just in case I wanted to put back the sub-standard Bose amp. Still at a bit of a loss on the rear sub though. I dont think the minimal Alpine amp (45rms ch) will drive the rear speakers and the sub, but I am going to try when I get a chance....Thanks for everyones help!
