Question about 1998 GMC Jimmy
My sound system was in ruins, front driver door was blown and the back driver side was dead.
So I just bought some Dual Illumiminite 6.5 inch speakers and installed them into the front door panels, and some other Dual 6.5 speakers in the back door panels. the sound is great, and everything works fine there... but now i want to bring the full potential of the illuminites into play.
My conundrum is thus: Where should I route the needed 12v DC power from to my front doors so as to light up these speakers?
My Initial Response:
At first i was thinking about integrating them into wherever the dash lights connect, so as that they will only activate during the evenings, or when insufficient outdoor light is available to see my instrumental panel, and that they would also rely upon the dimmer adjustment wheel. I know i cannot attach it to my stereo receiver, (gives a big NO to that option on the speaker)
There is 12+ going to the power window switch if you have power windows, you could tap off of that. It's already inside the door, no routing needed. Use continuity test to find ground. Also hook up a seperate switch on the door to turn them on or off.
