: Installing Alpine head unit

05-20-05, 05:00 PM
If I understand correctly, the stock GM head unit (non-Bose) in my '02 Seville SLS, does not have the amp in it. The amp is behind the rear seat. If I install an aftermarket head unit, in my case an Alpine, can I splice into the wires that attatch to the rear of the stock head unit? The new head unit will, of course, have an integral amp. Will running the new head unit, with amp, through the stock amp, cause me any problems? If the answers to these questions seem obvious to you, that will alert you to my expertise, in car audio. Any advice, tips, suggestions, would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Usually you have to get an adapter to make it work. I don't think it will work if you directly splice the wires. I could be wrong about this tho.
