  1. Hello folks, I have a 2019 Silverado non-bose with the 8-inch screen. I am attempting to install my 10 inch Alpine Subwoofer and amp that was a holdover from other pickups that I had. I got all the wiring complete such as battery, ground, and remote switch at the F27 fuse. The amp turns on and everything appears to be working fine, except I have no audio inputs. I referenced the PDF install guide for the new Kicker subwoofer that is now offered for the 2019 Silverado/Sierra with Bose/non-Bose which tells me to disconnect two 28 pin connectors and locate a Blue and Brown/Blue set of wires. I am supposed to tap into those wires for my input. These connectors are supposed to be off the audio control module over by the glovebox, but I am having a difficult time trying to discern if I have the right connectors or not. Looking underneath my passenger footwell behind the glovebox I found this junction box with all sorts of wires. There are some blue and brown striped wires, but there also seems to be a couple sets of them. I just wanted to reach out to all of you and see if I am on the right track and I just need to dig further or if I need to look elsewhere. I am one wire tap away from getting this working. Thank you!
  2. 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.
  3. Has anyone experienced a similar issue? I have a 2019 Silverado trail boss and when you turn the fan on, whether it’s ac or heater, there is a noise that is not normal. It comes from the passenger side inside the dash area. It’s not a loud noise and if the stereo is on you won’t hear it. It sounds like the fan motor is off. I wouldn’t bother taking it in if all trucks made the noise but they don’t. I had the dealership take me in another trail boss and there was no sound, just normal wind sound. They changed a bearing saying that was the issue but it is still making the same noise. The second time I brought it in they said they are reporting it to GM. I brought it in today and the service desk worker said it’s “normal”. I asked why the others don’t make the noise and he said it’s “normal”. Obviously not normal or they would all make the same sound. Anyone know what it is??
  4. So I am soon to do a big install in my 15 Sierra double cab and I plan to mount my two amps, Lc7i, and the power and ground distribution to the back wall. I don't want to zip screws through the wall and I'm in need of a method to attach either a 1/2" piece of MDF or a piece of 1/2" PVC foam board. Which should I use and how to mount it to the rear wall? Thank you

  6. Ok, so this is my first time posting here, and I'm really hoping to get some useful feedback as y'all are truck people like myself. I've owned my truck for the past year and a half, and only began noticing this issue after I serviced and changed all my oils (Transmission, and both diffs.) We're talking about a 2014 GMC Sierra 1500, 5.3l V8, SLT trim (if the trim matters). Here's what happens. On 2HI it runs great, no sound, smooth as silk, and transmission temp hovers at around 91 Celsius (195 Fahrenheit), and when I use to shift it to 4HI or 4LO, it rises up to MAX. 105 Celsius (around 220 Fahrenheit), and still smooth on the turning. Once I changed all my oils, suddenly there is a LOUD whining sound coming from beneath once I turn (not even sharp turns), its really sluggish, and the transmission does not take long to reach temperatures of 120-125 celcius (245-260 fahrenheit). I've already rechecked all the oils, and everything is clean and at a good level, there are no leaks, and I've used oils as per the owners manual. Any idea what I'm looking at, or what I should be checking? I do not want to blow useless money on monkeys clanking around in my truck for no reason.
  7. So, I just picked up my 2017 Sierra yesterday and ever since we got home, I get this weird electronic chirp when I start it. I didn't hear it during the test drive because I didn't start the truck myself. It seems to come from the speaker, and it has the Bose (center console so I think 6 speakers and a sub?) if that makes any difference. What is that thing lol

  10. Hello guys, I'm trading my 2014 crew cab. I have a few items i would like to get rid of. All are priced with shipping included in the U.S. I'm in Birmingham, AL. Items are; Anzo ubar headlamps with chrome housing- 350.00. Installed these on my truck this past summer. Currently has H.I.D bulbs (ballast not included but can include for additional 150, see ballast in pics)) and L.E.D switch back turn signals with resistors. Lighters are projectors of course, and were pretty bright. You would have to adjust according to how your truck sits. Mine was leveled (lowered in rear) so i adjusted them according to that. Chrome door handles and chrome mirror caps. 100.00. Installed these handles and caps in august. Bought the handles used, mirror caps were new. Items in good condition. One of the tabs on one cap broke off during removal, but will still fit and snap in perfectly. 3 sets of floor mats see pictures. $50.00 a set obo. May consider; backflip VP bed cover (5'8 bed)Make an offer I can't refuse. I don't NEED to sell this item, as I could use it for my new truck, but I would like to go a different route with my bed cover. Cover itself is about 3 months old, mounting rails are 2 years old. Subwoofers with under ( ground shaker) seat box and Pioneer amplifier. 550.00. Subs are 2 years old amp is 1 year old. They are 12 in Rockford p2s and the amplifier is a 1600 watt pioneer subs sound damn good, and loud. and again another item I could keep, but looking to go a different route (maybe single ten). Added** Chrome running boards. My new truck is black, and i want the black running boards. really would like to trade someone for some black ones. if not, I'll have to install these because my wife and kids having a rough time climbing into this new truck.
  11. I recently purchased a used 2009 Saturn Aura and a couple days ago I noticed that my music wasn't playing through the aux cord when I connected it to my radio. I thought it was the cord so I bought a new, higher quality aux cord and tried it with that one but with no luck. I can't figure out what it is because when I plug the aux cord into the aux input, my radio (which is the standard factory GM radio that came with the car originally) recognizes that I plugged an aux cord in and switches to the aux source from the satellite radio but no sound will come out when I play music, just mild occasional static. I've looked everywhere online and can't find any forum with a similar problem. Can anyone give me any pointers as to what it could be?
  12. Hello. Just so you know, i am new to these forums. anyhow, I have a 2006 sierra with 5.3 vortec. Love spinning tires and such, which sadly has led me to have to put a new transmission in. Considering i am 17 years old, with what i think is a decent amount of experience with mechanics throughout my life, i tackled the job myself in my dads garage. The was Tranny put in good, shifts correctly and everything proper temperature, oil level and all. passed inspection for warranty, but...heres the issue... at idle it makes a ticking sound. The sound seems to be in sync with the RPM - as i rev the engine the ticking accelerates. I pulled the starter and double checked the torque converter bolts, they are tight as possible. I am stumped. WTF is the issue here? could it be the plastics on the sides of the transmission somehow (plastic around starter and by oil filter) ? Any advice would be great! thanks!
  13. So I'm looking to upgrade my sound system a bit, specifically I'm thinking of getting a small subwoofer (8-10 inch), I've already gotten an aftermarket stereo deck. I have no idea when it comes to this sort of stuff, so what sort of things should I look for/be wary of? I'm talking with a guy who has a 10 inch Kenwood sub with a box for $70, does this mean it's cheap and low quality or will it be fine? Also, I would then need to get an amp as well, what should I look for when buying one to make sure it's good quality? He said he was running it on a 400 watt amp if it makes a difference.
  14. Hey guys, I've had this noise occurring for over a year now, I cannot nail it down. Anytime torque is applied to the drivetrain there is a cracking/sizzling sound for a few seconds coming from the transmission/transfer case/torque converter (not exactly sure yet). The sound is most noticeable when shifting between drive and reverse or after releasing brakes and accelerating from a stop light. I do not believe it is the the flexplate, I also removed driveshaft to check u-joints and they seemed good. It could be engine or tranny mounts but not sure. Anyone with Ideas is welcome to comment! Thanks. here is the video. the sound occurs at 9, 24, 33, and 41 seconds. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8nwWtPD9JL6QTlrOGNxdVVUWnM/view?usp=sharing
  15. So, I've noticed this issue ever since I got my truck and for a while there I thought I was crazy. For details sake, I own a 2014 GMC Sierra SLE, so non-Bose. The problem appears when listening to music. The best example I can think of is when listening to Bohemian Rhapsody some parts of the chorus are not properly emitted through the speakers. The most glaring of them is in the intro chorus; When it hits the underlined part there are no lyrics emitted through the speakers, only the instrumentals are emitted. This happens several times through the song again towards the last segment. It also happens on various other tracks ranging from several different genres. This is just the most obvious one. For reference all of this music is downloaded straight from iTunes, so its the non-DRM high-bit rate versions. This issue only happens through my truck speakers and not while listening through headphones or other devices. Music is being played back through the bluetooth but also happens via aux cable. Sound settings are set to factory with the sound stage set via dead center of the truck. Does anyone else experience this? I can take a video and upload it to youtube but I'm sure it will be flagged due to the music.
  16. So I almost exclusively listen to XM radio when in my truck. Lately I have been noticing a slight "clip" in the music when listening to the radio. It's pretty annoying. At first I thought it was a speaker going bad, but It only does it on XM radio. Even more specifically, I can only here it on one channel of XM, which happens to be my favorite channel. XM 37 Octane. There isn't any interruption in the music, but I distinctly hear like a skipping/clipping sound almost like a short burst of static. it's seems random but every now and then I will these little blips. I can notice it during the middle of a hard guitar riff, or while its a lighter acoustic style riff. Also when the DJ is talking. So all sorts of sound levels......... I have played with the tone settings to try and mitigate it, I think lowering the treble seems to help, but I can still hear it. Anyone else get this? Or am I going crazy????
  17. I have a MTX Thunderform Sub Box with 10" Kicker Sub I had installed in my 09 Sierra Extended Cab for a few months until my truck got written off from hail damage. My understanding is it will fit any extended cab silverado/sierra from 2007-2013, please double check fitment (http://www.supercrewsound.com/C15EX07FB10-TN.html). If you're looking for a sleek, OEM-looking install with crisp responsive bass, look no further! This sub was and is amazing, I hate to get rid of it but I ended up getting a small car instead of replacing the truck. Box alone retails for $350 not including $100+ for the Kicker CompVR (07CVR104) 10-Inch 4-Ohm DVC 400RMS subwoofer. The sub is wired for a 2-OHM amp but can be wired to work with nearly any impedance. Looking for $325 Shipped, best offer. Please text or call 218-four-1-six-2-four-9-one as I do not have access to check this forum often. Thanks for looking!
  18. Greetings all from a new member. Hate for my first post to be a complaining one, but... after years of waiting to get a brand new truck, I sat down with my dealer to build a 2014 SLT yesterday. Unfortunately I am unable to get the exact truck I want with the Bose sound system included. Although I don't belive this was the case a couple weeks ago when I was using the GMC website builder, apparently you can't get the 5.3l engine with bucket seats and get the Bose system- you now have to get the 6.2l to do so. Seems crazy to me that you can't add a premium sound system to a SLT regardless of engine or seats, but such is life. Now that I've vented, two questions: 1. How big of a difference is there really between the standard factory 6-speaker system and the Bose on the 2014? For average radio/CD use, is the factory system decent? Anybody compared the two themselves? I didn't check them both out when I was test driving as I assumed I would be able to get the Bose. 2. Assuming the standard sound doesn't do it for me, does anybody have any opinions on how to best approximate the premium sound system aftermarket? I'm not really interested in doing it myself and would probably take it to a local shop. The idea of letting someone hack my brand new vehicle makes me a little nervous but I'm wondering if it might be worth the risk for a decent sound system. Thanks
  19. Do the factory exhaust tips change the tone of the exhaust system? I would like a little more noise, but don't see the need to spend big dollars. I do not want something I hear everyday humming down the road, I quite enjoy the quiet ride!
  20. I have for sale a like-new MTX Thunderform enclosure for a new body style 2007-2010 Sierra/Silverado Extended cab. Had it in my 09 Sierra which was recently totalled in an accident. Absolutely loved this sub in my truck(and the truck), sounded great. Paid over $400 for the sub and enclosure. Asking $300 obo. Ill get the details for the sub tomorrow. All i remember is kicker and DVC. Cleansweep sound processor with cd and harnesses. One of the best factory integration sound processors available. Asking $120 obo. The tabs that hold the pigtails into the slots broke when removing so they may need to be zip tied to ensure they stay in. Also have an autocal unit in perfect working condition with both cords. SOLD! UNDERCOVER Swing Case for 6.5ft box extended cab. Not sure if it fits a short box or long box. Literally installed two days before the accident so to say like-new is an understatement. SOLD Prodigy P2 trailer brake controller, one of the best available. Asking $75 obo OEM air box and intake tube. Make an offer. Dash trim from where I replaced with a DIC. Make an offer. Need all parts gone ASAP, no reasonable offer refused. Will post pictures tomorrow of everything.
