Im trying to hook up a pioneer 8600 in a 2002 impala, but i cant get the stock speakers to work. and after messing with it for 6 straight hours, i know it has something to do with the stock amplifier. its like not turning on or somthing. how do i fix this? thanks

i figured it out! i had to power one of the 20 wires that wasnt being used to turn amp on.

also this cd player is pretty cool, alot of options, i might have to buy one for my car now
