Eh Tegger or anyone else who could offer some help.
Ok, I have a 03 Acura TL.
I am installing a aftermarket Unit and want to get my sub and amp still in
operation to maintain that good sound.
It has been at the shop he is having difficulty getting the amp/sub to work
w/ the unit.
So here is my question. After a quick search online, I found this link. It
looks like it will work to me, and afterall it is on a Acura Forum.
Will this work? Any other suggeestions? I need to know this tonite, tomorrow
after 10am eastern standard time (canada) is too late as I will be going to
shop and he will be starting at 930am. I did give him these instructions to
try and he feels it should be good.
Help on this one please.
In case the link does not work, I have copied and pasted the details below
Here is a simple mod to make the stock Bose sub in our back panel work when
changing out to and aftermarket headunit.
What you'll need:
-About 15ft of speaker wire.
-An RCA splitter
-15ft of just plain wire
-One RCA either already split into 2 wires, or an old set of RCA's your
willing to cut.
1) First, lift off the back sit bottom and remove the bolts holding on the
seat back. Lift off the seat and remove. On the right side of the car you
will see the sub amplifier. Find the wiring harness and cut back the tape or
protective wire lume to expose alll the wires.
2) Second, you're going to look for 2 wires colored blue/green and
orange/blue, or on the other side of the connection those same wires will be
just yellow and the second purple. These wires are the source for the sub
amplifier. Here you will take the 15ft of speaker wire and solder on to the
labeled wires. Positive on one and Negative on the other, polarity doesn't
matter. Now take the 15ft of single wire you have and solder this one to the
orange wire on one side, which is equivalent to blue after the harness. This
will be the remote turn on when the radio is on.
3) Third, run these wires under the carpet and under the plastic panels
making it all the way up to behind the radio and pull them through to let
them hang. Here you will use the stripped RCA terminal or one pre-made with
2 wires at the end. Solder the RCA onto the speaker wire you ran from the
amp. This wire will plug in to the output labeled SW, SUB, or something like
that indicating subwoofer. The with the single wire you ran from the amp,
hook this to the remote turn on indicated on the radio's wire harness.
4) Finally, give everything a test you should be able the fully tune the sub
through the radio depending on what your chosen radio can do.
I hope I was thorough enough for you but feel free to ask any questions!
