Most places that sell car stereos sell a tap adaptor kit costs about 20 bucks or more it hooks right to factory radio plug in dash and lets you hook any aftermarket radio/amp right in as all the wires are marked for there function (just match em up) No cutting and splicing required
proper kit is specific to your make and model car/truck

I am adding a kicker 500 watt amp and a pair of 12" kicker subwoofers to my factory(non Boss - possibly Delco)audio system. I need to tap into the rear deck 6X9 bass speaker wires to make the kicker s


You will know if you have them O.O.S. ( out of synk ) they will simply not sound right. You want them hitting in the same polarity.
Make sure you check to see that you have disabled the on board amplifier(s) before just cutting the wires.
You didnt add any information about what type of automobile you have, other than saying "Delco" so I am assuming its a GM vehicle?
If so, you will want to Google " speaker wire color for (make/model/year)"

Can you replace a stock amp with a after market amp without rewiring speaker 2001 sport track


It depends on whether you have the standard audio system or a premium sound system. The standard system has no factory amplifier, the premium system has a factory amp and some other gimmicks that are hard to interface with. A proper OEM amplifier upgrade will require changing the factory speakers with stronger replacements, as well as adapting the factory head unit output to a signal your new amplifier will like. More often than not, it is more economical and better sounding to just change the factory speakers and run the replacements off your factory system. To drastically improve the sound system, it is more effective to just change everything.

Where is amplifier plug location 2001 explorer


In the rear of your explorer, remove the right rear factory speaker. Look up in the hole exposed. That is where your factory amplifier lives. Whether you are trying to test, bypass, replace, or tap into the factory amp for an upgrade, all the wires are above the factory speaker hole. If you are doing a complex integration, it is fairly simple to remove the plastic panel that covers the entire area. How To Bypass Factory Explorer amp

Hooked up my custom stereo in my 1999 300m and there is no sound


Check your wiring.. Also is there a factory amp?? If so did you wire around the factory amp to each speaker? After market radios can not be used with factory amps & must be wired around it. I posted a wiring diagram below for you to check your wiring.

Amp color code wire diagram 2002 tahoe


I just built a factory amplifier/crossover bypass adapter for my 2002 Chevy Tahoe Z71 (non-Bose system) . This adapter will allow the full range of audio directly from your head unit to the door speakers. Without this adapter, the factory amplifier will cut out much of the bass / low frequency audio to the door speakers. This adapter will continue to provide an audio signal to the factory amplifier for the rear factory subwoofer and cargo area pillar speakers.


I have posted an article with complete set of step-by-step instructions and detailed photos of the build and installation process.

http://www.savagehomeautomation.com



The article also includes direct links to the exact parts that I purchased on Amazon to build this bypass adapter.


This is what the end result looks like. It is a 100% non-destructive adapter than can be installed or removed from the Tahoe at any time. It just plugs in between the factory wiring harness and the factory amplifier.7_9_2012_1_38_07_pm.png

How do I remove and replace the rear speaker in my 2002 Lexus ES 300?


Hello, I have a 2000 ES300 and while the body style is different believe the newer model still has the rear deck mounted sub-woofer that you are referring to. The process of removing this speaker would start off the same as if you were going to replace the third brake light also located in this housing. Using a flathead screwdriver work your way around prying/popping up all four corners of the speaker grill covering the speaker that have the retainer clips. Once you disengage the clips work/maneuver the grill up and towards you gently and it should slide out. The bulb for the third brae light will be attached to this speaker grill, disconnect the snap wire from the bulb and you should have a clear visual of the speaker and the four bolthead screws securing it. Remove these screws and your almost home free. The next part might be slightly more difficult. If the speaker s simply connected by a clipped on wiring harness, just detach.On my 2000 ES300 i have the pioneer system(Not Nakimichi) and the 2 wires (one black, and one red) are soldered directly to the speaker. You can take a soldering iron(maybe a battery or gas powered one unless you have an inverter) and remelt the solder to remove the wires or you can elect to simply cut the wires. If you choose to cut them make sure you cut them as close as possible to the soldered joints so you have plenty of wire left to install the replacement speaker.Then install replacement either soldering or using crimp clamps and reassemble. ( Note if you simply want to add a aftermarket amplified sub-woofer you don't need to remove the sub-woofer out of the housing. You can tap into the wire leads and run it directly to the amplifier. Just cut one of the wires leading to the stock sub-woofer so it doesn't also come on and potentially blow while the radio is on. This will also prevent any bass humming when the radio is shut off but the aftermarket amplifier is still on because once one of the wires to the stock sub-woofer is disconnected or cut it breaks the circuit. Hope this helps.

Where can I safely tap 12v power to add another circuit?


Check the ignition wires with a test light and locate the wire that goes on and off with the key turned
Auto part stores sell an adaptive positive battery cable connector tap off this with #12 wire to one side of a 30A relay tap the other side (load) this goes to your device then: tap off the other side of the relay (switch) cut the wire to the ignition feed; then back to the ignition switch use #18 wire with either wirenuts or, crimp connectors for this and, don't forget to ground ask the auto parts person to show you the "load" side (your device" and, the "switch" side of the relay.

1998 Audi A4 Quattro rear speaker wiring


You can't use any of those - the large connector at the OEM speakers is because the rears are amplified. Your factory head unit puts out a line level signal to the rear speakers. There's an amplifier on the driver's side rear speaker (the box around the magnet that you can see from inside the trunk).

You need to either replace the head unit with an aftermarket one to drive your new speakers, or you need to tap into the amp connector and find the line level wires, break them out, put RCA plugs onto them, and plug them into an aftermarket amp, which you'd use to power your rear speakers. Doing it that way allows you to keep the factory head unit.
