All of this stuff will be going into a 2000 Pontiac Bonneville SSEi with the factory Bose system and factory head unit. I've never installed a signal processor before and never had to tap into the factory wiring like this before so I want to make sure I have everything all planned out before beginning the install.
I'm looking at buying the Kicker CK44 amp kit because it seems like the best and cheapest option for what I need. It's intended for a 4 channel amp but it doesn't have to be used for that. I would be using this kit to wire up my Audiobahn A8000T (yeah, I know).
# 4 Gauge 4-Channel Amplifier Power Kit
# Handles 2000 watts peak
# Handles 1000 watts RMS
# Hyper-Flex Power Cable
# 20 Foot - 4 Gauge Power Cable
# 3 Foot - 4 Gauge Ground Cable
# 20 Foot - 16 Gauge Turn-on Lead
# Fuse Holder
# 100 Amp ANL Fuse
# 17 meters 4-Channel Twisted-Signal Cables
# 60 Foot - 16 gauge Speaker Cable
My real questions are around the process of wiring up the signal processor to my factory wiring and my amp. I'm pretty sure that I would just want to tap into the speaker leads right before the Bose amp in the back for the 3sixty.1. Do I just use basic speaker cable to do that or is there some special type of wire I should be using? Then, how do I wire the 3sixty.1 to my amp? Just basic speaker cable or RCAs?
I know that I'll need additional power, ground, and remote wires for the 3sixty.1 but don't know where I would purchase them. What size wire would you recommend?
Sorry if the questions are dumb but I don't want to screw up this install.
Here are some pictures of the ends of the 3sixty.1 and my amp to help anyone. Hell, if someone could make a diagram, I would REALLY appreciate it.
