1997 pontiac grand prix gtp factory amp


Apparently it was available with and without. If you have a pair of sub speakers, then you have the amplifier. The factory radio was equipped with inputs for an optional multi-disc CD player so connecting an aftermarket player should be easy. You may have to add a 10A CD CHG fuse to the fuse block, ground the unit to a BLK/WHT wire, and connect the right output wire to connector 3 pin 10, the left output wire to pin 11, and the audio common lead to pin 12.

Front speakers cutting in and out after 20 min of playing


sounds like the amp may be interfering with the output on the CD player. make sure you have a good ground on all the stereo components to prevent feedback.

Amp wire pushin to much base out of car speakers and not to subs


Umm.. subs are usually meant for bass. do you mean amp power wire? if you just want to be able to hear the mid's and highs better just turn the bass down either on the equalizer on your amp or on your cd player.

Radio wiring problem 2001 Audi A3


Hi, had total issues with this too! Your back speakers arent going because they are amped by the factory amp in the boot. You have to provide power to the amp so that it will turn the rear speakers on. This was a white and black striped wire in my car (Audi A3 1997) The rear speakers are blue /green and brown/red (left rear) , and the LH rear is brown/red and (forgotten colour) but the wire on the bottom left under those two brown/red wires on the 20pin harness. If you wire it all up like this then your rears should be going :)
