    Removing the head unit in a Chevy Avalnche

    A friend of mine wants me to install a pair of 12" subs and an amp into her new Chevy Avalanche. I have installed quite a few stereo systems before but never with the factory stereo. So my questions are: Will i be able to use RCA cables? or will i have to use Speaker level inputs? if so how do i wire those (never gone that route)? Also has anyone ever taken the head unit out of an avalanche? what is the correct procedure for removing it to wire the amp to it?

    if you use a stock HU, you need a Line Out Converter (LOC)

    check www.installdr.com to see if they have any instructions and if not, you could by the master sheets from Crutchfield for like $5

    use the speaker level inputs on the amp and connect them to any speakers to get the signal. rear speakers would be easyer or

    if your removing the hu. you can get the signal on the back of the hu and also get the power for the remote turn on wire for the amp



    Truck system:
    Pioneer P860mp HU
    Alpine SPS-171A Type-S 6 1/2" Comp's
    Alpine SPS-690A Type-S 6x9' speakers
    4 PG Octane-R amps
    3 Alpine SWS-1242D Type-S 12" subs


    ````````````````````````````````
    Car system
    4 Pioneer TS-A1681R 6 1/2" speakers
    2 Alpine MRD-M1005 amps
    2 Alpine SWX-1242D Type-X subs
