2005 Z71 put replacement Bose amp in my Tahoe now have a buzz coming from back speakers

Recommended Posts

So just replace my boss audio amp with a factory replacement Bose. Now after plugging in the rear stereo unit for the rear speakers to work I have a small buzz that gets louder as I accelerate. Got told to try and ground out the amp itself but would like someone else’s opinion on what could be the issue.

Most of the time, the "buzzing" you are hearing is due to a grounding issue.  Make sure you have a good ground...no paint, good metal-metal contact, etc

      I have a 2004 Silverado 4x4 with the Bose system. I just put a brand new aftermarket head unit in it and still no sound so I bought a used amp off eBay, installed it and still nothing.   Fuses are all good and all connections are as they should be   I’ve read a lot saying it could be the speakers. If one speaker blows could it shut down the whole system?   I’m at a lose and nothing I have read has been specific enough to my problem nor has anything given me a confirmed fix   Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you

      Hey guys, first and foremost Merry Christmas and I hope everyone is having a great holiday, I however am in a bit of a bind.  I wasn't happy with the bose sound system in my new Trail Boss so I went with JL 3.5” in the dash, and a 6x9 3 way coaxial and a 6.5 2 way coax in the rear. I originally bought the factory kicker sub upgrade for the bose to see if it would help and it did but it wasnt enough so I went with JL. Only problem is I ****ed up and my wife had a tech support package through Best Buy  so my install was free and it certainly showed. Ive already undid what they did and it seems they tapped into the speaker wire cluster in the passenger door panel and tried to wire from the bose amp to the new JL 5 Channel amp and then tried to run my 6 channel LC7i output converter to the factory head unit from the same rear passenger door cluster. Sounded like shit, I had no control over my fades, my highs were ear shrieking, no sound when making phone calls and they attached the wrong wires etc. Long story short I memorized all the speaker wire colors in the truck both positive and negative fixed the cluster they ****ed up and have everything other than the speakers that are currently disconnected; connected. Ive also got the kicker sub upgrade to work with the 6” bose sub without the special harness after some splicing and tapping into the mono sub input coming from the bose amp (Blue/Grey and Green/Black thicker gauge wire). My problem Im running into is where I tap into the signal coming from my head unit in order to plug into my LOC. From there I can hook my amp up to my speakers and call it a ****ing day. Ive pulled my rear seats to have full access to the bose amp and Ive also pulled the door sills and some of the dash to be able to get to the dash speakers. Which brings me to my other problem. I don't want my 3.5”  JL speakers to be wired to the bose sub for obvious reasons, so is it possible to wire them directly to the head unit since they're a lower RMS and, if so, then how? Basically where do I tap into the truck to install my six channel LOC and wire my dash speakers to my head unit. Currently I have the speaker wires in the rear passenger sill cluster snipped since thats where best buy had them snipped in order to bypass the amp. Additionally is bypassing the amp as simple as snipping the wires belonging to the speakers which the bose amp is supplying power to? I know there are harnesses but Ive already got the truck apart and I have my solder and weather tubes to properly splice my connections so I don't mind the work as long as Im able to get it done, Ive been without proper sound for 3 months Im not waiting on a harness since the holidays is the only time I have off. Il post pictures of the cluster **** shortly. Merry Christmas and happy holidays guys !

      Trucks with the bench seat seem to have a lot less sound coming out of the door speakers vs trucks with a console,both having a Bose system. Does anyone have an explanation?
