Adding aftermarket audio to factory amp.

I have a 2001 DODGE STRATUS R/T and the factory system was ok but i want more. I am replacing the head unit with a jvc cd player useing the factory speakers with the factory amp.

Now for more bass I am adding a boss 1000 watt amp, a boss 1.0 farad capacitor, and a boss 12" two sub box to the preamp output from the head unit

I had the head unit, the amp, and the box hooked up in my truck and the lights would dim when i turned it up. I hope the farad capacitor solves the problem with the STRATUS.

My questions are there any problems that I should be careful with and will this farad capacitor kill my battery since there is no remote wire to turn it on?

After adding amp and sub, front and rear speakers wired to reciever will not play.


It sounds like you removed the remote wire from the factory amp to run your aftermarket amp. You need to reconnect it, and if necessary, split it to go to both.

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.

Alpine head unit CDE-9870 will not play sound through speakers of a 2003 pontiac vibe. what could be some issues to cause this?


This generation of Vibe may have the upgraded audio system installed from the factory. In order to get the audio from an aftermarket radio to play through the factory amp, the factory remote turn-on lead must be located. If you are using an adapter harness, it may have the wire installed, just attach the blue/white stripe wire from the Alpine to the blue or blue/white stripe wire on the aftermarket harness adapter.

Hello i would like to add a din head unit a few 6/9s and maybe a sub if poss into my saab 9-3 vector sport 56 plate is it possible with my existing 7 factory fitted speakers so that when i come to sell my...


My suggestion is to go to your local audio shop and pickup a dash kit and wiring harness to hook up the din head unit. I actually wouldn't recommend putting in aftermarket speakers unless you don't plan on reselling or they are blown. You could hook a sub up by running your power wire to your amp like usual, hook your amp turn-on wire to an accessory wire and buy a "line level converter" you will tap into factory speaker wires with this and it will convert it to RCAs. You will only need to do this if you are using the factory head unit. Also, unless the aftermarket unit has features that you want that the factory one doesn't, I wouldn't bother with that either. Good luck. Let me know if you need any more help.
