Hello folks again,
It's been a while since I've been on here.
I've decided to attempt to bypass the stock amp, and add a 5 channel amp, as per your suggestions, and I also currently have an lc2i and kicker amp with a 12" alpine type R sub in a sealed enclosure. I have also replaced all of the stock front speakers, with kicker brand.
I find I cannot get the sound, nor volume, that I want. Past threads I was involved in posted links to the stock amp bypass and other very relevant details, like links to videos showing how to do all of this.
I would like advice (and links hopefully), for the factory amp bypass harness, and a few good, yet affordable, recommendations for a 5 channel amp. I also intended to keep using the kicker monoblock amp and the sub I have.
I am unsatisfied with the volume and clarity. I was thinking that adding more power to the speakers I currently have installed would solve the problem for me. In a dream world, I would like to try dsp, but am short on funds, and the knowledge on how to even tune such a system. I am trying to avoid a trip to an installer.
I am perfectly capable of doing the wiring, but I need advice on a 5 channel amp, and how to use this with the exact same setup for the sub that I have now. I'm using the lc2i, with bass knob, and if there is a better way to wire this, please let me know.
I really need that link to the harness to bypass the factory amp. And, I'm sure someone can find the thread that linked all of the pertinent information I would need. I can't seem to find it though.
I am not looking to spend more than $300 or so for the 5 channel amp. And, advice on how to wire everything would be great.
This will be my spring/summer project.
Also, I find I am really lacking in midbass. I did sound deaden the front doors, and probably will for the rear doors as well, as well as the rear deck, which I haven't done yet.
But, this post is basically for equipment advice. I want/have to avoid a shop install due to financial reasons.
Please give me all of the help you can, and if you can find the original post where I asked for help, and it contained the links for the harness, as well as videos, I would greatly appreciate it. I have tried unsuccessfully to find it.
Thanks, and I'm sure I'll need your help going forward.
