hi I'm trying to put in a sub system in my 08 Malibu hybrid but I can't find a place to run my amp power cable from the battery through my car and to the amp any body know where I can do that or do I have to drill a hole in my floor?
yeah...just go thru the rubber grommet for the hood release cable & then put the grommet back (not pictured, lol):I ran mine through the firewall on the drivers side. I ran it through the firewall where the hood release wire goes. I got a coathanger and just pushed it through. Hope this helps!
If your car has a factory amp, then you just tap into the Pink wire (in the wiring harness/loom) going to the factory ampHey I am trying to hook up an amp in my 2008 malibu LS...I need some help, I dont know where to connect the blue remote wire...if anyone can help me out I would definitely appreciate it, thanks!
please let us know! ive never been a big fan of doing the rca-pre outs on the ear speakers but ive never had a car that already had a decent system.. Ive always gutted and replaced everything lol..I suppose u could just change the factory subs, but if you wanna get preouts you dont neccissarily have to change the factory radio, i didnt wanna change my radio either so i bought a high level to rca converter from bestbuy...it cost 26 bucks...I just splice the rear speakers into it and run the rcas straight out of it, and another plus i felt was you dont even have to run the rca all the way to the front and take apart the dash n everything...ima gonna complete all this this weekend, ill let you know how the sound quality is
you gotta do what I did in that install linkIs it possible to get some better subs using the factory one? I love the upgraded stereo and wouldnt really want to have to put in an after market to get some sub pre outs
