Hello everyone....hope u all had a nice summer and did a good deal of cruzing..

I just purchases a new Pioneer radio and attempting to install it.
The radio works fine..but no sound.

I have been told that I need to by-pass the Bose speeker amps in order to get the sound.

Does anyone know how to do this or can anyone offer me some advise?


Thanks Peter

First of all I believe Bose system in vettes are 2 ohm system where as your Pioneer head unit , like the rest of auto hi-fi systems, is a 4 ohm system. One option is call reputable auto hi-fi store or circuit city and they shuld have converter which splices in between these two different ohm systems and allow you to use Bose speakers-amps. Another is to replace all speakers with non-bose and wire dirctly to your new head unit. If you do so, you will lose most of bass and probably will want to add a custom subwoofer or Bazooka. Bose factory system, considering its 3.5"(may be 4") in the front and 6" in the rear, was able to reproduce pretty decent bass thru their tuned port design.

I use two pre-amps for this. It boosts and equalizes the connection.
Makes the real estate behind the dash even dearer.
