    Do you have the wiring diagrams? If not PM me with your e-mail and I will send them, I just did that a few days with another guy. They’re PDF files. Two of them.

    It is an easy job technically but physically it is tough unless you have the entire dash out.

    Boy do I miss my Vette. I feel like a part of me has been amputated.

    Wow.. An old thread, revived.

    I ran my Blose right from the replacement head unit with lousy result, but did not blow the built-in amplifiers. The correct solution for me was to get equalizations preamplifires to match the head unit output to the speaker/amp inputs.

    I suggest using Crutchfield, who has a wealth of expertise and the right equipment and adapters for the less electrically adept.

    Having now changed to a full aftermarket system (I always hated anything Blows) the speaker replacement took much longer than a few hours... Waaay more, as taking the door apart to remove the stock speaker box was a mere trifle compared to fabricating a box that fit while retaining window movement. In the rear, I also made boxes for the 8" subs, which took days to get a proper fit.

    I am still fighting a whining noise and have spent hours and hours reading and working on it in the lovely tight quarters of my dash; and my car is simpler WRT electronic integration.
