Stock Subwoofer/6X9 Wiring Question
Hi all, this is my first post and yes i tried searching but couldn't find the answer i was looking for.
I just bought a 2008 cobalt ss tc. It comes with the stock pioneer sound system.
While cleaning the previous owners garbage out of the trunk, i notice some extra wires (approximately 14 gauge solid red wire, and 14 gauge non stock speaker wire).
I also noticed there are more then 2 wires connected to each 6x9 (each 6x9 has coloured wires and then black and red wires that have been severed and are connected to nothing) I dont know how to post pics.
Any idea what is happening here? What did the previous owner have going on?
Secondly, my front right speaker is blown. I've purchased new 6.5 components to replace the stock tweeters and front speakers (new speakers are 4 ohms so connecting to stock head unit is probably not a good solution). I plan on purchasing a new amp to power these speakers and possibly the factory 6x9's as well (if they aren't also blown).
Will the stock sub woofer work if the rear 6x9's are disconnected from the factory amp. I have read that the sub and 6x9's are potentially bridged on the stock amp. I would prefer to keep the stock sub on current wiring harness. if this isn't possible then i will connect all speakers to an external amp (including stock sub).
Thanks for your help.
