I just got the rear deck speaker system for my 2001 LS. It originally didn't have it. The plug is there, I plugged it in and I get nothing. Am I missing something? I have the Alpine indash premium system. Please help.

there are two sets of hex screws above and below it.mikerc said:Thanks for the reply. What is the best way of removing and checking the head unit? I don't want to break anything.
Next as noted in earlier post there is a loose gray wiring connector forward of the left trunk hinge in the trunk, even if vehicle doesn't have the subwoofer assembly. This connector has 6 wires in it. BK and RD 16 ga. are ground and power for amp. YE/RD is the sensor wire to power up amp. GY/RD and WH/RD are speaker neg and pos.for the subwoofer speakers. There is no balance control or right and left. One other terminal contains a braided shield circuit. The speaker wires are very light 22ga. as they were made to be used with an amp. The last 4 above circuits are not connected to anything with the standard system and deadend at a blue 16 pin
connector in left kick panel area which is easy to see if lower insulating pad is removed above gas/brake pedals.Audiophiles have different dash wire harnesses which would connect these circuits to radio as well as the center dash speakers and tweeter amp. The left rear door speaker wires are in a Black 20 pin con. right next to the above blue con. WH/VT is + and GY/WH is -. The right rear door speaker wires are in 20 pin Black con. in
right kick panel near glove box hinge all WT is + and all GY is -.These 4 speaker wires are 18ga. and run directing into rear doors before any other connector. Considering all this I believe upgrading to high quality and efficient 3way door speakers to be the best/most cost effective solution without cobbling up wiring. The standard radio has more than enough volume, who needs more amps. 6 by 9's in the rear deck would be nice for more bass without vibrating the side mirrors and your lower legs as I have noticed, but is it worth all the trouble.
Quik LS said:I upgraded:
- door speakers to Alpine SPS-570A 5"x7"/6"x8" 2-way
- center console speakers to Rochford Fosgate Punch FRC3203 - 3.5" 2-way
Which made a huge difference with the quality and clarity of the sound - but still missing the bass 'thump'.
I then added Sony Xplod Amplifier/Subwoofers Package (XM-2165GTX amplifier / 2x XS-L1200B 12" subwoofer) 1000w amp driving into two subs, with a Rockford 1 Farad Digital Capacitor.
Now I can move my hair if I want it that loud.
My LS did come with the premium sound so I had a rear amp I could pull out and replace.
The connector for the rear amp is:
An 8-pin connector wired as follows:
position 1 = sub + line level signal (gray/red)
position 2 = sub - line level signal (white/red)
position 3 = shield for sub amp signal
position 4 = +12 remote power to sub amp (yellow/red)
position 5 = center channel - line level signal (gray)
position 6 = center channel + line level signal (white)
position 7 = shield for center channel signal
position 8 = +12 remote power to center channel amp (yellow)
If you have this connector on the back of your head you can hopefully find the other end some where in the trunk.
the 3.5 front console speakers are there to add 'abiemance' - working with your DSP switch - and are not really made to be heard themselves. I did upgrade mine with some Rockford Fosgates and it made a 'sound quality' different - not really a volume difference though.mayo12080 said:quikie kinda question. i put in some jls subs, which pound. some mb quart front components in the doors. i dont feel my front stage is quite good enough. what arethose 3.5 front speakers you guys were talking about. if iupgraded them would they need an amp on them to be heard since the entire system is now running off one of two different Jl amp's?
LSchan01 said:What's up guys,
I am trying to install an alpine amp and two alpine 10" type r subs to my 2001 LS with the Alpine in dash 6 CD changer. I was having some problems with my amp clipping, so I hooked up a different amp entirely to test the problem. well then all of the sudden my rear door speakers shut off. I guess I blew a fuse or something somewhere but I don't know where the fuse for the speakers is. Any help on the matter would be greatly appreciated.
