    1998 grand prix amp and sub added to stock system using high end output jacks.

    I installed a sony explode amp with one 12 inch sub and we used the high end outputs instead of the rca cable because the stock stereo that has heads up display and steering wheel controls still works fine. Am I not understanding the high end output jacks pupose?

    What exactly is your issue? Sounds to me like you successfully connected some dope a$$ equipment to your stock head unit using high level inputs rather than the low level RCAs. Congrats. Enjoy it.

    Thats due to the high quality equipment you purchased.

    In all seriousness what are your amp settings?

    Relay a message to the rest of your friends. Let them know I said not to trust you touching their ish. It's for their own safety as someone who doesn't even realize that amps have settings should not be touching anything dealing with electricity.

    Re: 1998 grand prix amp and sub added to stock system using high end output jacks.

    i think you need to start by posting amp model number, cause for all i know you wired you rear 6x9's into the B+ and ground. we need to see the amp your working with and the connections it has to help you.

    if your amp doesnt have ANY type of harness to wire in the high input from the speakers, it should have been pretty straight forward.

    you would be doing yourself a favor to buy a high output converter, and adding some rcas from the head unit.
