Hi All, I'm new here, so I apologize if this thread has been covered and thanks for having me. I installed an aftermarket stereo with a 500 watt amp, 12" sub, and door speakers on my 2014 Sierra 2500 HD WT. All items installed are Kenwood. I was looking to add a little depth to the bass notes and adding hands-free/Bluetooth upgrades from the base work truck RADIO. The volume at max level is sub par at best. Has anyone else dealt with this issue? I didn't change the highs up front. I'm wondering if that has something to do with the low volume? Maybe the tweeter is more restricted, IDK and definitely lost. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
Just wanted to let everyone know if you don't already, iDataLink has released the new software for our trucks. We can now replace the crappy radio's with an aftermarket one without losing ANY integrated functionality like steering wheel controls and dash info controls. It also comes with an external warning chime speaker so the chimes don't go through the radio anymore. http://maestro.idatalink.com/product/product/product_id/102 . Alpine has also released an entire radio cluster replacement that come with a 10" Display. Its pricey though! http://www.crutchfield.com/p_500X110SLV/Alpine-X110-SLV-In-Dash-Restyle-System.html .
I replaced the Bose OEM radio deck (Delphi) with aftermarket D-Din deck (Pyle PLDNV695). I wired it all without all pricey harness adapters. Everything works great the way it is wired now but, I was not able to find the wiring schematic to wire the stock steering wheel audio controls to the at aftermarket DDin which has the hook ups for it and can also program it. Please help!! P.s.: I have already had extreme success with adding aftermarket amp and sub, wiring aftermarket D-Din radio (using the Bose stock speakers), and bypassing Bose amp with no harness adapters for under 30$. If anyone has any questions about any of those topics I'd be happy to help so you don't have go through all the research I had to do. I'll save you a hellish headache!
Hey all, I purchased my truck a year and a half ago (second owner), and it had a Sony CD player. Last night, it crapped out while truck was running. I checked fuses, all was fine! so i figured the Sony just died. I just bought a replacement... a Pioneer, so I re-wired the new harness (thank god for colored wires!) and i turned my truck on, and still nothing out of the new unit. am i missing steps here? I drive a ton, if i don't have radio, i'm going to lose my mind!! 2005 GMC Sierra WT Reg. Cab Short Bed 4x4 2005 GMC Envoy SLT 4x4 2004 Chevrolet Suburban LT 4x4
