  1. So I have a 2014 Silverado LT1, without the Bose system. It has the 4" non touch screen radio, and 6 non Bose speakers. I want to upgrade to the loudest, clearest sounding speakers possible. My local sound store told me Arc Audio was the way to go, and I was hoping some others may have installed some before I do. Looking for feedback and opinions, don't worry about price, I'm just looking for the loudest clearest sound I can get.
  2. Hey, so I am trying to replace the speaker wire in my rear door speakers and I cannot get the panel off that is on the column between the front door and rear door. This column panel has the speaker wires running up it into my rear door. How do I remove the panel without breaking the little red Clips inside? Thanks, Hunter
  3. Sold (actually given away already!)
  4. Hey guys, yesterday I had just gotten a 54 inch curved led lightbar installed with a simple toggle switch. After the install on the trip back home on the interstate, I was greeted with a very loud and annoying whistle/humm from the drivers side speakers. It wasn't like this before the lightbar install. And it creeps in about 45mph and gets drastically worse at higher speeds. It is not wind noise, it comes with static from the drivers side speakers. Any tips/dui help would be much appreciated as I do not feel like making the 50 minute drive back up town to fix maybe a simple issue. Any help would be appreciated.
  5. I just bought my first newish truck, being the 2014 Silverado 2wd z71 lt. It’s got the crew cab with 5.3l under the hood. I’m currently stationed at ft Stewart ga. Im just looking for some help or some advice on some upgrades I’d like to do to this truck and which products might be the best. - I’d like to change the headlights and fog lights from stock. - Put a leveling kit and some new (bigger) a/t tires on it and not sure what size being 2wd. - Change to an aftermarket air intake. - Do something about the shitty stock speakers (without Bose). Wether it be new door speakers and sub(s). Or be just subs and have a separate amp just for door speakers. Do I need a processor to hook up to stock 8” head unit. - How do I add any app or navigation to this stock 8” head unit - Exhaust? - How to get more performance from the truck. Anything would help, Thanks
  6. 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.
  7. 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!
  8. Hey guys and gals, i did a couple of searches but found nothing on the topic but here goes. I just bought me a beauty of a truck 2014 Silverado. Stereo and all works fine, except the system sounds like the signal clicks etc.... the OnStar and the handsfree phone when pressed and I have the volume all the way up is very faint and I can barely hear it almost like a faint whisper. There is a Clarion EQ installed which I think may have something to do with it because there is absolutely no sound coming from the upper dash speakers at all, even when the radio is playing. I contacted Chevrolet and they confirmed that the Handsfree and the OnStar radiate from the top dash speakers. Again this is a new truck and I haven't had a lot of time to tinker with it. If it is with the Clarion EQ ive noticed that its hooked up to the door speakers. I guess Im hoping there is a quick and easy answer vs. take everything apart to see whats wrong kindof approach, but that may be just wishful thinking on my part.
  9. I bought a 2016 Sierra SLT with the Bose 8 speaker system 5 weeks ago, and the front right speaker already sounds awful. I haven't turned the bass much up at all, but it sounds blown. Even when i turned the bass to negative numbers it still cracks. Would a dealer replace this for free? Can anyone give me some advice on his to fix this. Thanks for the help
  10. Rear speakers are very quiet even at max volume. Fading to rear doesn't help. They are factory speakers. Not Bose or anything special. Can't imagine replacing speakers would help. Not sure if there is an amp for it or ran from radio itself Answers?
  11. 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?
  12. Removed from a 2014 Silverado 1500 (2) 6 x 9 & (2) 6 1/2" factory speakers like new. Truck was purchased new in December 2014. Asking $50. 6" x 9" speaker gm part number 22753371 6 1/2" speaker gm part number 22753364 Location: Rochester, PA
  13. My front speakers ( non bose) were really sounding BAD with the bass set anywhere but minimum. I took them out to find this. So I ordered some kenwood kfc-p709ps from amazon for $65. I removed the door panel and removed the stock speaker assembly. The speaker and mount assembly is released at the top by pressing down on the tab and pulling assembly out. Then remove the grill from the door panel. Do this by straightening the tabs on the back side then the grill pulls off the front. I left the stock tweeter on the panel and drilled out the factory tweeter mount from the front side. you don't need to remove the nut to do this. This pic shows the drilled out mount. Then cut off the tab located next to my thumb in this pic. Then from the front side, push the threaded stud on the new tweeter thru the hole drilled earlier and attach with wing nut provided with speakers. I fed the wires from front to rear around the edge of factory tweeter. I used the mounting ring provided with speakers and removed the three longest tabs from it. They are still on the ring in the next pic. I used the crossover harness also provided, It is the harness hanging loose in the pic. the actual crossover is in the shrink tubing. I also bought the wiring pigtail from amazon to make connections easier. The package they came in had a chart with all the wire harness color codes printed on it. Nice touch. There are large and small connectors in the harnesses so you cant reverse the wires accidently. The black and white harness is the pig tail. I centered the woofer in the factory opening and drilled four holes and used screws provided. I forgot to reinstall the grill but got a good pic of how the finished mounting looks. All I can say about the finished results is OMG!! the sound is better than expected. For a stock system, this rocks.
  14. Hello all! Thankyou for reading this post, I hope it helps others as well as me. Here is the problem: I own a 2006 chevy Silverado z71 package, and the rear speakers have not worked since I bought the truck. about a year ago, I replaced the factory deck with a JVC deck, and still the rear speakers had no sound. ive checked my wiring, and everything is hooked up right, I even ran a new ground wire. I thought I had blown something in the deck itself, so after much deliberation, I bought yet another deck, as well as two new back speakers. I replaced the deck again, AND the speakers. still no sound. I have ran new wires to the speakers to rule out faulty factory wiring. I am Stumped... any help would be muchly appreciated. thanks for reading!
  15. Hey everyone! I have a 2005 GMC Sierra with Bose speakers and I have a high pitched noise that comes out of the speakers from time to time. I've only had my truck for a few months and the first time I heard it was also the first time I used the defroster. Thinking the speaker was bad I unplugged the speaker on the rear passenger door and everything was good. Recently I'm now starting to hear this noise coming from the passenger door. Normally I'd ignore it but it's hard to ignore and it seems to only happen when I'm using the defroster. I'd hate to take apart the passenger door and have two speakers unplugged on that side especially when they sound as good as they do when they are working right. The only thing aftermarket I have is an iSimple thing that plugs into the back of the radio that came with my truck. I've done some research and I'm finding that I'm not the only person with this issue. People are saying to pull out anything aftermarket, replace the radio, replace the speakers, there's a loose ground and so forth but none of these answers appear to be from people who have the problem lol The bottom line, has anyone else had this problem and fixed it before? I kind of want to have a better idea on what to do before I bust open my dashboard and start pulling wires. I appreciate any and all good advice from you guys! Thanks, Adrian
  16. Well, now that it's getting cooler I am shifting gears to the indoors..... which means I can start finishing my basement and build my home theater system . I already have my receiver, speakers, and woofer. I'm just looking for a good projector for under $2K and is the only thing I'm splurging on. Any suggestions? I'm looking at the BenQ M7000 at the moment. Also, any cool bar ideas? I think the only cool thing in mind right now is putting a flat screen behind the bar mirror. Probably also going to give concrete counter tops a shot. I'll post pictures as I progress. My goal is to have the Theater area and most of the bar area done by my son's 1st birthday in January.
