factory speaker wire questions
 
hello all,
i just joined to ask a couple of questions. my cuz is wanting to add a amp/sub combo to his factory radio in his 07 tahoe. he has a speaker level out to pre-amp converter PAC SNI-35.

what colors are the factory speaker lines out of the back of the radio? would i be better off tapping front or rear speaker lines?

thanks to anyone that can offer some help...

Radio 12v red/white + radio harness
Radio Ground black - radio harness
Radio Ignition (GMLAN Serial Data)
Radio Illumination yellow (dimmer) + radio harness
Factory Amp Turn-on same as power antenna wire
Power Antenna white + radio harness
LF Speaker +/- tan - gray +,- radio harness or amplifier
RF Speaker +/- lt. green - dk. green +,- radio harness or amplifier
LR Speaker +/- brown - yellow +,- radio harness or amplifier
RR Speaker +/- dk. blue - lt. blue +,- radio harness or amplifier

Notes: If equipped, the amplifier is under the rear of the center console.

At the amplifier, the left subwoofer wires are dk. blue/white (+) - lt. green/black (-). The right subwoofer wires are dk. green (+) - lt. blue/black (-).

I actually had my set up prior, with the LOC. I bought an RCA adaptor and tapped into the rear left and right speaker wires to get the signal.

thanks for your continued help AZ!! i will tap into the rear speaker. but i am still a little confused by your wiring diagram description above with the positives and minuses. could you clarify a little with only using the rear speakers? thanks again....

Come to think of it.....I didn't use a LOC for my old set up. Sorry about that. I actually had an amp that had speaker level inputs....so i didn't need a LOC. Let me see if I can find some more info for you or maybe someone will chime in.

Are you asking about this below??
LR Speaker +/- brown - yellow +,- radio harness or amplifier
RR Speaker +/- dk. blue - lt. blue +,- radio harness or amplifier

mlkmgr 07-16-2008 05:18 PM

yes that. just a little confused with all the + and - symbols.
the plus wires are brown/yellow and dk/lt blue, while the neg is radio harness or amp??

Left rear speaker Brown- Yellow+
Right rear Speaker Dk Blue- Lt Blue+
