Well if you're going to put the amp in the trunk....that's probably your only solution.Thanks for the info!! I am actually adding a component system to the front powered by an amp. The reason I was asking about the wire colors is because I think it would be easier to take the wires from the door, run them as the amp in source and then take the out source back into the door to the speakers (amp is in the trunk,not much room for it elsewhere). Any other suggestions or would you do the same? Thanks!
I have the LS with basic stereo. There is NO WAY that the factory wattage would push my Alpine Components (Sounds bad enough pushing the OEM speakers). Also, from what I was told from crutchfield the factory amp pushes the rear deck and not the front speakers(just get power from head unit).Well if you're going to put the amp in the trunk....that's probably your only solution.
So you're still gonna use the factory amp though???
You could also put the amp underneath the driver or passenger seat (if there is room--haven't looked under there yet) if the amp is small enough.
I hear ya....just was an idea thoughI have the LS with basic stereo. There is NO WAY that the factory wattage would push my Alpine Components (Sounds bad enough pushing the OEM speakers).

As for under the seat, it would be a really tight fit by itselt, but I like to install my amps on a board instead of just laying it on the carpet. Helps it breath better and ge some air running underneath it to keep cool. Better served in the trunck I think. Also keeps it out of view. Thanks for the info!
I have a Malibu LTZ with 210 watt audio system where in the hell are the 8 speakers and two subs I only see 6 speakers.I'm not too sure how many speakers you have on your stock stereo, but the GM radio wiring colors are usually the same/standard
So once you find the colors on your speaker's wiring.....do a quick google & you should be able to find out which is positive & which is negative (if just changing out the speakers). Or you could even just buy the cheap $10 connector harness that plugs into the factory connector & then connects to the new speakers (if only swappping out the speakers)....something like this:
If you need the radio harness wiring colors, that should be standard too.....check for the wiring from a G6 or a Aura.
Well I just did the search & it should be something like this:
LF Speaker (+)Tan (-)Gray
RF Speaker (+)Light Green (-)Dark Green
LR Speaker (+)Brown (-)Yellow
RR Speaker (+)Dark Blue (-)Light Blue
12v Constant - Thick red wire
Ground - Thick black wire
