    Mine is a 4th order bandpass with the square port firing through the grill that used to house the stock sub. Sounds great and has brought me dozens of trophies. Plus, with an obnoxious exhaust and supercharger, the car is a hit at every competition I go to. I like having a somewhat rare car that most car enthusiasts appreciate. I'll probably be buried in the thing. :-)

    What did you use for the High Output Alternator? How much?

    Thanks

    First to answer your question, all you need is an amp with high level inputs, tap off the factory amp in the trunk, run your amp power & ground wires and you're good. If you have any further questions feel free to PM me, I have all the wiring diagrams, factory service manual, etc. etc.


    Did this myself, 4 Alpine amps total (two hidden behind the suede wall), JL W7 12", 2nd battery in trunk and High Output Alternator among many other audio/video goodies inside the car.

    here is their application guide, they have them for all CTS versions through 2011: http://www.maniacelectricmotors.com/cts.html

    Re: Add on amp&sub with stock stereo?

    I used the XM input/headphone jack mod, and an iPhone connector-to-A/V to the amp. the XM aux input mod works as normal, but with the amp on a toggle switch.

    meaning: when the amp is switched on, it is always 100%, so unless the rest of the system is turned up to match the bass, the bass is left booming on its own.

    however. I never turn down the bass.

    you'll need: XM stereo mod
    iPhone to A/V cable
    2x A/V 1:2 splitters
    A/V to 3.5mm headphone jack adapter
    toggle switch
    power cable to the Amp thru the firewall under the cabin air filter.

    yes as some people are aware, I have thrown my sub boxes on the floorboards of the back seats. that bit of ghetto fab is optional, I'm just lazy practical

    uber technical wiring diagram

    I bought a sony amp and 2 kicker 8" subs from Fry's, some MDF (or whatever the wood is called) from Lowe's, and the connectors from Radio Shack. had it all done in a day, boxes and all.

    //subs might be tens, i forget. (dem are tens!)
