Alpine stereo car deck installed in place of factory Bose with

Factory amp 93 audi stereo system pops through speakers when a sourc input is chosen or a new song plays or key off & key on.plays well once started .pops every song change.So far I am told that the factory amp needs to be bypassed.I have no interest in doing that. The remote wire is hooked to provide power to the car amp.Otherwise no sound at all.The internal amp of the Alpine deck is turned off & the speakers are powered by the RCA jacks on the alpine deck.Audi speakers are all amplified from factory.Plus audi has front & rear amps in the car.It would be an active Bose system.Not a passive one.

    Thank you for replying to my audi stereo popping noise.In spite of being told that my only hope was to replace the factory amp ,I still wasn't prepared to do that.As a result ,I continued looking for an alternate solution.It was suggested to me by a tech at PAC in Calif that I should install a ground loop eliminator in series with the stereo RCA jacks of the head unit.I purchased 2 & installed them & problem instantly solved.5 minutes work.Factory amp is plenty good enough for me in this case.
    Thanks for replying  anyway.

What you have been told is correct, these proprietary systems are great for the manufacturer, but when they start to have issues (and they will) they leave you 2 options: pay through the nose to stay original or replace the amps with new ones....the upside of this is aftermarket amps are soooo mugh better than stock that it is lauhgable.

    Outstanding, those ground loop capacitors should last awhile, if problems come back remove ground loop and touch rca ends together to dischare then reinstall.

Sony xplod stereo wiring diagram

Yes you need to turn on the BOSE amplifier in the car to hear the sound. The wiring diagram is actually on top of the factory radio
You will need a 12v trigger to turn the amp on. this is assuming you have all the speaker (inputs) connected to the output from your new deck.

I have four bose 901 speakers and one equalizer. I also have a peavy deca 424 amplifier. I have a tape deck with the tape monitor capabilitity. Can these work together and how do I hook theme up?

The presence of 1/4" TRS balanced phone jacks instead of RCA inputs is a problem; and the 1/4" TRS speaker output jacks, too. You'll need to acquire cables with compatible ends.

The amp can handle 4-ohm loads so running two 901's parallel on each channel would theoretically work, but I'd put them in series just to keep from presenting too low a load when you get cranking. At 230 wpc you've got the juice. From Series 4 on the 901's are very efficient.

The Tape Deck will attach conventionally to the Tape Loop on the Active Equalizer.

Once you get the physical wiring compatibility issues worked out:

Patch the Active EQ directly between any source you may be using (Amp In from the Pre-Out of the source, Amp Out to the Peavey input).

You can record the external source onto the attached Tape Deck and you can monitor it by pressing the Tape switch on the 901 EQ.

Start out at low volume and see how it works before turning it loose.

Need to know what is the easiest way to convert a

It is possible but its going to take some patient custom work. You basically have to remove the entire stereo system out of your 93 Cam and then prewire the 93 to prepare the install of the 5 speaker bose system.

You have to modify the space for the bose speakers from the 96. You have to make sure that when you install the system that the speakers are in-phase meaning that they are not going to sound with the woofers sucking in but pushing out like they have to, to get you best sound, you then have to find a location for your 5 speaker Bose Amplifier eaither under one of your seats if the space is available or somewhere in your hatch area, trunk. Make sure that you use the correct Gauge wires for the power connections, they shouldnt be anymore than 12 Gauge in most cases. Do not try to power the Bose speakers with another amp or you will blow the speakers instantly. I cant tell you how to modify or customize all your work to make this happen, this is something that only I could do if I was present with the vehicle, this is something you have to know how to do or get an installer to do it, the problem is that most stereo shops will not do that type of work, most places will eaither tell you to take a hike or they will throw you an outrageous price to do the job just to scare you away and get rid of you.

Good luck my friend and let me know what happens.

I get a pop from the sub when the power comes on.

This is caused because the stereo you have put in, is a high power output, or higher than the factory and puts that extra power into the factory amp systems causing the amp to surge the power to the speaker resulting in the pop sound,most newer cars use a stereo system without an internal amp so as to reduce heat and a external amp in usually under a seat or dash and a high power stereo boost the output of the amp.

2005 chevy silverado stereo wiring diagram

Are you trying to install a new stereo? If so will need to re-wire all your speakers because of the bose system.

And if im not mistaken your year truck might need a really expensive harness to install the radio. Here is a link to it.

You should look into this too!

Trying to install after factory radio in 94 Honda accord ex and can't get any sound

I have a 93 accord ex with the bose amp system. Had a Sony deck put in it. It had the popping and the noises. It was installed at a store and they had to hook the red power wire to the antenna wire to get the sound to come out of the system when playing a CD. I thought that was bogus to have the antenna up all the time so I took it back out and put another quick hookup harness in it and it did the same thing. Will not put out any sound till the red power wire is hooked up to the antenna wire so that it goes up when the key is turned on. Installed the same stereo in a 94 taurus SHO with amp and it worked great. I believe that there is an expensive kit that converts the bose system to hook up a unit so that it doesn't pop click buzz, and have to have the antenna up to play.

Peripheral's Connex2Car adapter to an Alpine CDA-9851

the alpine should recognize it as a "changer" when you select the source; ie: radio, CD, changer. Sounds simple, but have you turned up the volume on the iPod?
The Alpine adapter is $100, but works great, you can totally control all your iPods functions, and it displays all song info on the Alpine decks display.
