  1. Hi all, got in my truck one day a few weeks ago and the radio display was malfunctioning. The screen cuts off halfway so you cannot see the station, artist, song title, etc. I tried disconnecting and reconnecting the battery, maybe I didn't leave it unhooked long enough but that didn't work. Anybody else seen something like this or know how to fix it? I'll attach a photo. **the picture is upside down, don't know how to fix it, I apologize** Thanks

  3. I have the bose audio system in my 2018 All Terrain. I have the XM Radio trial and I have my subscription to Spotify. After about 2 month of ownership I've realized that the XM Radio has significant better quality in sound than using apps from my phone by bluetooth, or apple play. I have adjusted some settings within those apps to play the highest quality yet it doesn't translate as well as the XM Radio. Each time I switch between the two. I have to crank up the volume for spotify and crank it back down when on XM. Anyone else experience that? Any resolution?
  4. looking for amp install locations and ideas in my 2015 sierra 2500 cc. not enough room behind the rear seats and cant afford to lose any room in the back!
  5. If you saw my comment in our Live Review of a 2014 Silverado over the last week, you know that I ran into some issues trying to listen to Bluetooth audio through my phone. I've since confirmed using some diagnostic apps that using multiple devices running Android 4.2.2 and 4.3, only the left channel is played through the MyLink system. What we can't figure out is... why?? Is there anyone else with these new trucks that has tried Bluetooth audio streaming? How is it working for you? Also, what device, OS, and OS version are you running? What version of MyLink is installed on your truck? Here Devices we tried Galaxy S4 running Android 4.2.2 Nexus 7 running Android 4.3 This Silverado was running MyLink software "version" 23174395 and we only heard audio from the left channel Any one with other Android and Apple devices that can try this out and let us know what happens?
  6. Sold (actually given away already!)
  7. Made yet another change in my audio system plans! I'm going all out with a fully active system and Mosconi processor so I'm gonna sell the Alpine x110slv 10" Restyle kit This unit is extremely easy to install with all included plug n play harnesses and is in like new condition (been in for a few months and my truck only has a little over 8,000 miles in 2 years so it hasn't been used much). I would really like to sell it locally if possible (Monterey CA and I'll even help you install it) to avoid having to repackage everything but I will so it can be shipped safely if it comes down to that. Asking $1050.00 picked up or if you are interested in having it shipped we can chat about working that out. 831-383-0308 7am-8pm pst Instagram @mrmarvsplace Google "Mr Marv Tacoma" for references or message for a link to my 700+ 100% positive 18 year eBay feedback.
  8. I have a 93 1500 Chevy k pickup, got about 208xxx miles and about 3 months ago my radio started to just randomly cut out while playing. It doesn't reset any preset stations or the clock but the speakers will stop working. The only way to get it to work again is to turn the truck off for at least an hour and turn it on again, however it will cut out a couple minutes after. Is this a fuse issue? Wiring issue? Had anybody have this problem before it seems odd.
  9. I am trying to add an AudioControl Line Output converter, and 2 separate amplifiers to my existing 2015 Sierra Crew Cab SLT Bose system. I'll use a 5-way amp to power the front, rear, and console subwoofer. I've got a sub amp to power dual 10" subwoofers in an enclosure under the back seat. I've looked everywhere for a 2014-2015 GMC Sierra aftermarket harness for Bose systems without any luck. Basically, I would like to fabricate a custom harness so that I don't have to totally splice into the existing wiring. That way, I can simply keep my existing bose system in place, and if needed for warranty or if I end up selling or needing to yank out the audio system, still keep factory in place. Also, I can't completely remove the factory Bose amp, because it handles other processing, like bluetooth, door chimes, etc. The amp will continue to power the two dash speakers, and have other low level inputs from the factory head unit, but all of the other speakers outputs (from Bose Amp) will be summed by the AudioControl LOC, then output via RCA to the two amps, with speaker level outputs from the amps back to the custom harness and out to the speakers. I've found an adapter from Metra for an amp bypass (http://www.metraonline.com/part/70-2057), which was made for non-bose, but will work for the female side of the custom harness on the bose system, but I need the male versions of the adapter as well to connect to the amp. If I could get the harnesses identified as #3 in the photo below, I think that will work. Then I just do all the splicing and electrical connections on the custom harness instead of factory wiring. Any idea how to find/order it?
  10. The music sounds great as usual, but the connected party is complaining of my audio (crackling, raspy, choppy) when calling via my Apple iPhone X and connected to bluetooth. I didn't have this issue with my previous phone and other devices don't seem to have the same experience. Has anyone else experienced this with a new phone?
  11. Replacing Bose factory 6.5" subwoofer in the center consol with a JL audio 6w3v3. I have seen many people talk about doing this but have never actually seen anyone follow through. I also replaced my rear door speakers. Factory size is 4x6 and I put in 6x8. Made tempelate of speaker size and traced onto the truck door with sharpie. Then used tin snips to cut out the hole. It was super easy and there is nothing back there to get in the way. Then made a mounting ring out of MDF and a jig saw. Painted it black and put a foam sealer on it which pulled tight when I mounted the speaker. I did notice a better sound quality when I added the 6x8 over the 4x6. I swapped because I lost sound out of my back right speaker and thought why not throw a bigger speaker in there. I will be installing the JL 6w3v3 with the JL jx250 amp this week and I will post pictures and let anyone know how it turned out. Obviously it's not a 10 or 12 under the rear seat but I think it will add a much better sound overall. Not looking to wake the neighborhood. I have read many places it's is "sooo complicated" to get to the Bose sub in the center consol why bother with it. Not true at all. It took 25-30 min to get the entire console out and pull the sub.
  12. I have a '15 Sierra SLE Doublecab non bose and no nav. I'm going to use factory wiring for this setup as long as people seem to think it's acceptable. I listen to mostly country/rock/metal and some older rap stuff. Here is the hardware I have planned but not finalized if anyone has any suggestions. Amp: Pioneer GM-D9605 (75X4 @4 ohm + 1x350 @4 ohm(600 @2 ohm)) Front Door: Rockford Fosgate Punch P1692 6x9 Coaxial Dash Speakers: Stock Rear Door: Rockford Fosgate Punch P1650 6.5" Coaxial Sub: Pioneer TS-SWX2502 (Open to other suggestions, just the best performance to size and price I could find as the double cab doesn't have tons of free space) Front Door Adapter: Metra 82-3004 Rear Door Adapter: Scosche SAGMHR634B Also using factory replacement speaker connectors for simplicity. I plan on grabbing the Metra 71-2107 to go from the HU to my amp line level inputs which will also turn the amp on. Then using the Metra 70-2057 to go back to the factory speaker harness. This way whenever I eventually trade the truck in I can keep my amp. Does anyone know how long these cables are? Any recommendations or suggestions?
  13. Ok so I have looked everywhere and got some great info but can not find anyone who has installed a slim 8inch subwoofer behind the rear seat or under the passenger seat. I have a 2015 crew cab non Bose and my passenger seat is not power so I have some room. The Rockford P3SD48 P3 Punch Shallow mount 8-Inch DVC 4-Ohm Subwoofer I got only needs .40 cu ft per manufacture recomendations. So a pretty small sealed or ported box will do it. I got a Alpine MRV-M250 to power it. I'm going to run 4 awg marine power wire from my second battery and it should let me up the amp to 500w if this 8 inch does not cut it. As far as connections I'm pretty good to go but I'm looking for help with the placement of the sub box and would love to get everyone's thoughts. Not looking for a lots of bass just to help the sound quality out some.
  14. Before investing tons of $$ would love to hear what the kicker system, or any other, sounds like...Wondering if anyone in the Bay Area, CA happens to have a setup and would let me hear it? Thanks!
  15. Hello, Recently purchased a 2016 Sierra. I plugged the ipod in a couple days after and it worked fine. Go back to the audio menu to choose the iPod to play music and see it's no longer in the audio menu. All I see is one option, "AUX". I've tried everything. I turned the iPod on and off, I tried 3 different USB cables which I know work with the lightning power adapters. It disappeared from the audio options. I can however play the iPod on bluetooth but then I have to disconnect my phone, you can't have two devices connected simultaneously. Any help, suggestions are greatly appreciated, thanks to all in advance
  16. So I had an insane custom system in my previous BMW and am wanting a bit more in my truck. Nothing insane just better than stock. Crisper, cleaner, more defined. 2017 Silverado crew cab Z71, no bose. Are there 6 speakers total? What sizes are they in each location? What power ratings are they? Thinking about the Kicker upgrade with DSP and replacing stock speakers with better ones. Does the new kicker amp power just front and rear doors? Anything go to the dash speakers? Anyone put tweets in dash location and mids in doors? Is there any control over kicker dsp? Thank you!
  17. long time listener, first time caller... I have a 2015 Silverado with the 8" screen with the I05 hmi module and have the weirdest issue I have ever seen. While driving or at a stop light, if I wipe the dust off the dashboard with my hand directly over the radio (the high hump in the dash right in front of the light sensor), all of the audio goes silent. No radio, turn signal clicks, no phone, etc. The radio is still on, but nothing. Power cycling does nothing, but shutting off the truck and waiting 5-10 minutes works. I assume the static electricity does something?? It is just simple wiping of the hand on the plastic dash, not banging or moving the dash. I did it accidentally the first time, and have been able to do it 2 other times. It's not every single time, but is semi-repeatable. I'm taking it into the dealer soon, but I'd like to know if anyone else has had this. Thanks!

  19. I decided after a week of having the Crew that the factory non-Bose system really sucks. I will be installing an Audio Control LC6i to convert the factory signals over to RCA. I am running 2 Rockford amps, a Power T400-4 for the doors, and a Power T400-2 for the sub. The door speakers are Rockford P1675 3-ways in the front doors, and P165 2-ways in the rear doors. I am using a single 12" Rockford P3SD4 under the driver's side rear seat in a Subthump box. (http://subthump.com/product_info.php?cPath=1_72&products_id=457) The power and ground will be Lightning Audio 1/0 gauge to the back, and then 4 gauge to the amps. Running 12 gauge speaker wire to all. I'm going to try leaving the dash speakers hooked up to the factory outputs, just to have some fill in up front. Lots of install pics to come.
  20. Model: 2015 Chevy Silverado 1500 double cab So I got a pioneer 5 channel amp with speaker wire inputs so I can keep my factory radio. I Cut the factory harness speaker wires leaving the power and ground wire intact. Ran the speaker wire to the amp, and then from the amp back into the factory harness. Powered up everything and I am getting no signal, my chimes don't work, no sound at all. Took it to Best Buy, guy said I did everything correctly, and couldn't figure it out either. Anyone have this problem or got an idea? I even tried changing connection to a line out converter and still nothing. Everything is brand new.

  23. As I'm sure many of you folks are aware, they're adding a "projection" option to the 2016 Silverados and Sierras within Mylink/Intellilink. Do any of you know if it would be possible to add these features to a 2014-15 Silverado via a software flash, HMI swap (as some people already do to upgrade to nav), or other means? Any info or insight would be appreciated. I don't care much for factory navigation, but having Google Maps on my truck's display would be awesome.
  24. I'm planning on adding component speakers and aftermarket amplification to my 2015 Bose System with Subwoofer. I've seen several posts stating that the chimes were extremely loud after amplification. I know that the head unit controls don't adequately lower the volume. Has anyone successfully bypassed or attenuated the chimes yet? I read that theoretically you could tap into the post-Bose amp rear speaker signal and then split you your components and sub signals from this. The chimes apparently go through the front left speaker. Would this allow you to still use bluetooth for phone, etc, and is this the best option? Any ideas?
  25. Anyone have any information on relocating the two computer modules behind the factory head unit? I've got the basic, non-bose HU and buying the 8" is just not an option, as it will not meet my standards, nor would I pay that much. That being said, this is really the main thing from holding me back. I've done a good amount of research, but I've yet to find any solid information. Thanks!
