    Got a couple of questions...

    I'm helping a guy open a new shop up, and he wants me to be one of his first installers. I have been out of car audio for the past 3 years, and I am kinda unsure about some of the newer car auido factory systems. I just recently did an install on a 03 Tahoe, and it was a pain having to deal with the factory BOSE system. Is there any site at all that lets you know a bit more about some of the trickier factory systems out there, and things to watch out for?

    Thanks
    J.D.

    Yeah, I thought this one was gonna be simple, our customer bought the 60 dollar Metra Harness that was supposed to be a direct hook up, well I call Metra, and they said they haven't developed a way to turn on the factory amps, and that I needed to run new wire, there's no fun in that when you're only charging the customer 30 bucks to install the HU. Plus the back doors, there's a connector that goes into the side pillar to hook up the back speakers and there's different color wires for the speakers coming out on the other side. I'm gonna recommend to everyone with a Bose system in a GM vehicle to buy a new amp, and then run the speakers from it.
