No i appriciate your reply, ill do some searching on the lux amp and see what I come up with, if i find nothing I will just see which wires are coming off the speakers, Also for 02-04 amps are the front speakers powered like all the other years or is it the rear speakers?02 - 04 were different. They had what they called the LUX amp.
Sorry - hope I pointed you in the right direction.
congrats on the new ride and welcomeHey I just got my 06 Trailblazer the other day and am looking at putting in some 2 10 inch subs.
It's a matter of opinion. Quite a few people have used it for lower-powered gear with no problems. I would not use it, I would pick up some 8 gauge wire, an inline fuse holder, a positive battery terminal, and a d-block:m2:Each sub has its own amp and each amp is only putting out 150 watt RMS. I was reading that some say not to hook up the power wires to the fuse box under the seat, but i was wondering since this isn't much power compared to others if it would be ok to do so.
should be fine with 16 gaugeI also have the BOSE sound system in my Trailblazer and was reading that I will want to tap into the front speaker wires before the amp, so I was wondering if it mattered what gauge wire I use to go from the BOSE amp to my amps built in hi-low converter.
thank you for searching first:tiphatSorry if this is a bunch of questions, but thanks for the help.
I just noticed that on the FAI-3A one pair of RCA plugs are for front and on is for rear. So when if i sliced into the front speaker wires could just split them treating the RF+ like the RF+ (right front) and RR+ (right rear) and so on. Hopefully someone knows what i am talking about.Today i found a Output converter for my RCA plugs. Its the Scosche FAI-3A. I was woundering if I still only need to wire the front speakers to it. Thanks
the non bose does not have an amp....the LOCs should be wired into the speaker wires in each b-pillarMy 2004 Trailblazer LT has the non bose 6 disc cd changer. I have a line out convertor but it appears that my wiring for my speakers is under my rear seats next to the fuse box. There is an area already cut in my carpet that has the wiring module similar to the one you have in the truck where you had to remove the plastic however there is no black amp like the one one you have pictured. There is another plastic covered box under the passeneger side rear seat that says Motorola on it. Should i tap in at the motorola box or the wiring near the fuse box where the carpet is cut?
i wired into the passeneger side pillar and attached my loc to the Dark Blue, Light Blue:Brown, Light brown, I also attached my remote wire to the pink wire. I used a an adaptor to attach my power and grounded the amp temporarily to the bolt near the passenger turn signal which connects directly to the chasis. I turn the car on and the amp is not getting power. I have a friend bringing over a volt meter but at this point it seems everything is as it should?the non bose does not have an amp....the LOCs should be wired into the speaker wires in each b-pillar
the motorola box is the onstar module - do not disturb it
TheIm not sure which pink wire you are talking about
Im not sure....best I can suggest is wait for your buddy and test that wire for voltageThe
In the passenger side pillar where I connected my loc to my rear speakers I spliced into the PINK wire as stated in the first page to connect the remote wire to my amp. But seeing how my blazer does not have an amp is this the incorrect wire to hookup the remote for the amp?
the remote was the problem. I ran the remote to one of the fuses and it works good. However when i turn up the freq on the amp the sub hits harder but the vocals come through alot more. Would it be best to keep the bass boost on the amp all the way up and then conrtol the bast through the hu?Im not sure....best I can suggest is wait for your buddy and test that wire for voltage
In the meantime, you could carefully run a jumper from the amps B+ input to the remote input to see if that is indeed the cause
Do not use bass boost. I repeat do not use bass boost. This is one of the leading causes of speaker damage. Set all your gains properly and if it is not loud enough get another sub or get more power.

Should turn the bass knob on the amp all the way down? I have it set in the middle and I can adjust it through the HU pretty good.Do not use bass boost. I repeat do not use bass boost.

That is a very nice setup you have there. I can't say I like where you mounted the AMP but to each his own. I do however love the sub enclosure!! Is that a custom enclosure or an off the shelf kit?This is an Alpine MRP-M500 mounted on the back seat. Turned out very neat and clean. She's powering a Alpine Type R 10" in the rear quarter panel.
And wow does it pound.
