You will need to run the xm and onstar to dvd player.
Then on back of dvd player, you will have rear audio output jacks. The wires that go to amp will connect hear and run to amp rca jacks.
Then also on dvd player wiring. There will be blue remote wire which will also run to remote wire plugin on amp.
Then big thick monster cable goes straight from battery to Positive (+) on amp.
Then a big thick black negative ground cable goes from amp negative directly to trunk, or any non-painted surface of the car body.

Amp should have two channels. Right channel for one sub and Left channel for other sub.

Use amp just for subs. Do not mix regular speaks with sub and amp.

You hook it up like you would any other stereo system. From what I have read that model doesn't have XM radio. Though there are still ways you can get xm through external receiver.. Then you would also want to pick up a wiring harness to make the job easier. Usually in the case where someone asks how to install a whole stereo system, then you really shouldn't do it yourself. Especially on an 06 trailblazer. As sometimes modification of the dash is required as well. Depending on the fit of the unit. This is a very extensive installation and should be handled by a professional.
Thank you,
Lee

    I definitely do know what I am talking about, but for someone to even ask a question like that means that they don't know what their talking about. So you really shouldn't be attempting an installation on your vehicle because you could do serious damage to the electrical system. I hope another expert will be able to better assist you.
    thanks,
    Lee

How can I hook up my Bose cinemate on my Philips HD tv when no there is no Audio out and I want to use it for my dvd player, cable box, and video systems?


You don't need to send audio TO a TV. I's a TV, not a source of anything. Many of us use monitors (no TV speakers). The Bose speakers are presumably superior to the TV speakers so whatever the TV is watching (cable/sat/dvd) shuld have its own audio.


Page 11.

If your TV does not have any audio output jacks, you can connect the CineMate™ speaker

system to the audio output jacks of another source, such as a DVD player or cable/satellite

box. However, you will hear sound only from the connected source through your CineMate
speakers.

Do you have the audio out for your dvd player and cable tv going to the bose speakers or is going to the television. It needs to be connected to the home theater system in order to work. The audio cables from dvd player and cable. Let me know if it works.

Non bose dvd player for bose system


In short, you can. I did it last night. My Bose 321 DVD player is junk and it's always been junk, but I love the sound sytem. Last night, after the thing gobbled it's last DVD, I went through the whole, unplug, wait 5 minutes, plug back in, etc. and it still wouldn't eject so I ripped the DVD tray out of the thing with a pair of pliers, recovered my DVD, and slammed the tray back in, stripping all the gears and screwing up the motor in the process.
BUT, I disconnected the video cable from my Bose and plugged it into the video out on my el-cheapo Tru-Tech $99 DVD recorder. Then I ran the audio out cables from the Tru-Tech to the Aux 1 inputs on my Bose 321.
When I want to watch a DVD now, I put the DVD in my Tru-Tech, turn on the Bose, switch it to Aux 1, and I get a great picture and the Bose sound. Best of all, I don't have to plug and unplug that sorry Bose system everytime the wind blows.
They used the absolute cheapest DVD player they could get their hands on--a Toshiba model--for all the Bose 321 older models. Every single person who bought one has had these same troubles and they've made no offer to fix them.
This was my first and last Bose because of that and I hope more people stay away from Bose until they get their act together and protect their customers. $1000 for a system that eats DVDs like M&M's is ridiculous.
