    They are attached. I had both issue and like I said You need to run independent wire for those to the amp. The reason for the shielded is so that you don't get interference voice issues. I am giving you the answers but if you don't want to do it then you will never get it fixed. The premium sound system have 10 speakers vs 8 speakers and they are all independent.

    That is correct. I got that resolved. The front door speakers need to be in the correct pin on the amp and also the tweeters. They need to be repin. I cut the wire on my tweeters and soldier a wire and run them to the amp. Everything sound great. It is up to you to do it that way . Good luck

    Re: Successful navigation swap into a non Nav CTS

    I almost have everything I need for the swap, thanks to car-part.com, mouser.com, alldata, globaltutotech.com and hours of weeding through schematics.

    The only thing I can't find are the connectors for video signal to the screen from the silver box (blue). It seems most junk yards gut all the harnesses. I found new terminals and connectors for everything else. Delphi, kaizen, molex, no luck.

    Any suggestions?

    I know the dealer carry that wire with the blue connector but you know it is over priced. The last time I checked it was $300. Good luck

    Ok boys! It's done and it is perfect! There's no need to use shielded wires. I got sound by going to the dealer and PROGRAMING the unit. The computer blends in everything , the radio, the amp, the nav, xm, Bluetooth ... The dealers able to program and calibrate it all.
    You got any questions I'll be glad to help to the best of my capabilities and time .

    Did you check your pins -+ on the amp? I never did replace my center and it's works great. Check the amp connection and verify that might be the issue. You can post a pic of the amp connectors so that we can see the wires and colors

    Well i got my bass cranked up to 75%. And it pops when volume is raised at 75% also on high bass songs. If the pins are not pined properly it wouldn't work at all no? I'll post a pic. By any crazy chance do you have the PIN number of the center speaker ..?
