: Aftermarket Stereo...Need some help. *ADVANCED*

I'm looking to install my aftermarket kenwood head unit, considering my current stock unit has a stuck CD and the tape player doesn't even work.

BUT I'm wanting to do it all without one single Adapter or extra plug ins. The car is a 1994 Cadillac Deville Concour. Has an amp in the back behind the seat.

So basically it's going to be pretty hard to do, just wondering who else has done it? Also if there are any wiring schematics? Also how possible/impossible is this to do?

well basically you need to wire the amp to the aftermarket radio so youll need a 17ft rca to be on the safe side and depending on your amp youll need a amp kit so we will need the model on your amp. also to wire your radio is the diagram

On the bose your car has a built in amp and you have to bypass it so your have to rewire to the aftermarket radio to the speakers the factory amp will enterfere with the afternmarkets radio. On the wiring harness ebay has them or you can splice the factory wiring with the aftermarket radio. Don't cut them completly unless you don't want to go back to factory in the future.

Is that it??

no that not it i was refering a wiring harness to the receiver. all you need is a 17 tf rca and a spool of 14-16 guage speaker wire to rewire fro the receiver to the speakers so you can bypass the factory amp
