Not too pleased with the stock stereo. I like things loud when I'm rollin....yes I'm that obnoxious guy with the music too loud at lights haha!
Well I don't want to hinder the stock interior and dig the 6 CD changer and head unit.
So my question is how is the stock stereo set-up?
Does the headunit power any of the speakers or is solely off the amp in the trunk?
If the headunit just controls everything than I'm good to go! Just upgrade the speakers/edead everything and bust a bigger amp to power the speakers!
If not though then I have to cut into to produce RCA outputs for an additional amp .

I'm not so much in tune with super loud music anymore but I did turn the boost knob up on the amp and it did make it louder. Are you aware of this knob?

The amp is for the Subs only. All the others are powered through the head unit. Check Crutchfield they sell an interface that should work to help you hook up an amp/speakers.

I replaced all the speakers, and when I had the factory head unit in I ran a line converter off the rear speakers to the amp.
plus if you put subs in the trunk you can jump off the rear highs speaks and replace the factory 6,5" subs withs highs to keepup with the base

Well I do have two 12" MTX Thunder 6000 subs sitting in storage but don't think I will hook them up in the GOAT. Prefer to have some trunk space haha!
I was more just thinking of doing a complete speaker swap and replacing the stock sub with a better shallow depth one, run two amps and use the stock headunit. Just want something to crank louder and be more crisp.
Need to find out where to route all the wires for the speakers though. Not looking forward to tearing the whole interior out just to do it. Thats a weekend gone haha!
