I just got a 94 Cadillac Devile from the original owner. The factory stereo was not Bose. The previous owner put an aftermarket stereo in it. I want to put the factory one back in and install an amp and sub. Should the swap from aftermarket to factory be a simple task? Also, what's the best way to route the power wire to the trunk? I couldn't find a grommet in the firewall. Is it pretty easy to remove the moldings to run the RCA, power, and remote wires? I also purchased a LOC to add RCA's to the factory radio. Will the LOC fit behind the factory stereo?

Okay I installed the factory radio, everything works. I took out the glove box and couldn't see a grommet to the engine compartment. Also took out the panel under the gas/brake pedal, but couldn't see an obvious passage to the engine compartment. Do I need to drill a hole through the fire wall? Also, for the remote wire for an amp, I heard you can run it off the antenna trigger. I looked at the antenna in the trunk and didn't see a pink wire that's supposed to be the antenna trigger. anybody know what color that wire is supposed to be?

You put the power wire on the same side is your battery is what's size gauge are you using. If you can't find a gourmet drive a hole in the firewall and make sure you know where you are drilling at. A good space is along the brake lines which where I did mine in my 86, however the battery was on the same the master cylinder. Make sure you add a gourmet for your amp wire. Ebay sell great groumets from stinger. If you need anymore help write back
