For those of you looking to setup your own MultiPro tailgate speaker system, well HERE YOU GO! Wiring harnesses and amplifier brackets to make your project super easy!! No splicing or hacking away at your expensive factory wiring! I have a limited number of the items in stock, 10 or so of each, with more that will be ready next week!

When I did mine, I used the Soundstream ST4.1000DB bluetooth amp (and I am very pleased with it so far), so all of the options are available as plug and play with that particular amp. Or you can just get a harness with a pigtail that will give you 12v+ power and ground in your inner tailgate, so you can wire it up to whatever you want. Don’t forget to check out the options for adding lights and the speaker wiring harness to make the whole system truly PLUG & PLAY. so much better sound than the Kicker system for a lot less money!

All items come with complete installation instructions (with pictures, ha)!

Let me know if you have any questions!

nice design, nice website, good job!

One thing I couldn't notice in the wiring harness, is there an on/off switch?

Thank you!! 
 

there is not an manual switch but there is a tilt switch integrated into the harness that automatically powers the amp on (but doesn’t automatically play music) when the inner gate is fully deployed (down) and automatically powers it off when the gate is folded up. A manual switch could easily be added if someone preferred that. 
 

let me know if you have any other questions!

Do you have a picture with the step closed to show clearance?

The step easily closes without the speaker grills, but I wanted the grills on so i stacked some fender washers in under the step and grabbed some longer screws from Lowe's.

Edit: duh you said pictures and instructions are included.

 

next dumb question, does the accessory power need to be on? This is my first sierra and i'm not sure if the trailer power is on when the vehicle off.

The truck accessory/switch does not need to be on. The trailer power is always hot, hence the need for the tilt switch.

I am trying a slightly different approach on this. I have a 3D printer, so I have designed replacement panels along with panels that have recesses for the bluetooth controller and an aux port.

Once I get the marine speakers in, I will print panels that have mounts for them as well.

So, any progress or pics? I’ve been trying to reach the OP about purchasing his kit, but no luck. I real want an aftermarket setup

for the tailgate.

Same here. Would love to know if anyone has more details about the harnesses to get this working.

I have mine working. I had to reprint the parts with PETG filament to make them UV and sunlight resistant. The first ones warped.

 

I wired in a power switch as there are times I will use the system without the tailgate down (for example when camping and I have my hitch in). I also, just ran a standard amp wiring kit along the undercarriage rather than cutting into or modifying my 7pin connection. The 10 Gauge wire was much cheaper than buying the $90 pigtail.

      This is a simple install and takes 10 minutes (I did not find a write-up so hopefully this answers any questions others have). The hardest part is getting your gorilla mits in to access the trailer connector (add 10 minutes of frustration)
       
      Lights used: (~$32) These were selected since the ad said the lights could be removed from the insert panel – better than paying $150 to GM for 2 LEDs and wiring
      https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B09J11MV4M/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
       
      Tools Needed: Torx T20, T30
       
      1.       Remove the 6 T-30 and 4 T-20 Torx screws holding the kicker panel on the tailgate and move onto the tailgate
      2.       Locate the trailer lighting module in the second opening on the passenger side (red circle)
      3.       I found it offered more room if you unscrew the tilt connector board (yellow circle)
      4.       Unlock the connector by pulling the red tab up, remove the connector plug
      5.       Take the supplied harness and locate the end with the two connectors together
      6.       Connect one to the lighting module and the other to the connector you just removed, lock the connectors, reattach the tilt board
      7.       Temporarily connect the lights to the other ends of the harness to test the circuit
      8.       Assuming it is working, pull the rubber plugs out above the controls and USB area on the kicker panel
      9.       These lights are directional so before you remove them from the panels confirm how the manufacturer had them installed in their insert panel
      10.      Insert the lights in place of the plugs, route the pigtails from the harness and connect to the lights, Test again
      11.       Zip tie cables if you want (I did not), replace the kicker panel

      Hi I am new here so I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the correct spot, but I'm having big electrical problems with my 2018 GMC Sierra 1500. it started about 1.5 weeks ago, I turned my truck on one cold morning(-15C) and my speakers were making crackling noises with no music coming out at all, no door chimes or signals either. I noticed my volts were around 15.5-16, but it never went over 16. the music would come back on when I turned the engine off and just had it on ACC mode. I called my mechanic and he told me it was probably my alternator, so I paid to Get that replaced, he returned it and nothing changed. still having the exact same problems. I called him again and he took it back in and looked at it some more. The speakers now crackle for the first 5ish minutes of the vehicle turning on, and then eventually smooth out as the volts settle down to around 14.3V. I put in all new speakers around the truck about 6 months ago, with an Amp and subwoofer, but I am just now experiencing problems with it. I tried taking the power cable off of the amp, and its still doing it to the door speakers and tweeters. I am now out $1100 and still having this issue, if ANYONE could give me some advice or something I could try that would be awesome,  
       
      Thanks!
