Default Need help installing amp/subs to stock bose system.

Yes I know there are tons of post about aftermarket installs already on the forum but i have been looking for hours and still cant find a clear explanation on how to wire a aftermarket amp/sub to the stock system. I want to replace the crappy stock sub with a nice ported box i have.

I have a 2005 Mazda 6 with the Bose system, I know you can splice the factory wire and run RCA's to the amp but I was looking for more specifics. If there is a guide and I just didn't find it a link would be great.

I just need some clear info on where and what to splice and if anything else is need.

Help please and thanks.
I just want my new 6 to sound good =D

Welcome to 6club!!

If nobody responds i will later. Gotta run out for a while.

If you have done any kind of wiring before this will be easy for you.

Ok. You will need a set of generic household RCA cables.

Unsheath both the white & red. Inside each you will find an unsheathed exterior surrounding a sheathed wire. Take the unsheathed from both the white & red & Y them together. Do the same with the inner sheathed wire on each. Giving you two Y'd together wires.

The outer unsheathed is the negative and gets spliced into the black/red wire running to your stock sub. The inner sheathed ones are the positive and go to the brown running to the stock sub

Your remote wire gets spliced into the blue/red going to the stock sub. Then all you need is to run a power & ground. Remember to have your power to the amp fused within a foot of the battery & keep the ground as short as possible.

Let me know if that makes sense.

Mr. Smoke, I was reading somewhere that it was a good idea to add an inline fuse on the remote wire connection that is being made? Is that actually needed?

No need for that Axion. That circuit will already be fused.

Sooo I actually haven't had the chance to even look at this. I just bought my Mazda hence the new member but then all of a sudden Saturday my car starts acting weird. Bring it to the dealer and the clutch is shot.... I've had the car a week.

Then they try to tell me that lemon law warranty nor my extended warranty covers clutches and its going to be 15 hundred for a new one.

Needless to say a had a few words and my car will be fixed by weds. Maybe then I can start to look at this install.
