Where is the factory amplifier for the 2000+ models located at? I'm looking to remove the factory amp and wire in my own (higher powered) for aftermarket speakers. the factory amp probably won't power the aftermarkets that well. I'd rather do this in the trunk than cut the harness behind the radio. I am assuming that my aurora and the Bonneville have it setup the same (non bose systems only.) Can you tell me if this is the amp, and does anyone have the wiring schematic so I know what all the wires are so I can do this project? I'd rather not cut wires and guess as to what exactly they do.. thanks!
Closeup of what I believe is the amplifier:
BTW, I asked here instead of over to the aurora board because they really aren't into upgrading the stock audio... at all. The stock stereo is not so great on this car though and it needs to be upgraded. I think I'm going to keep the stock cd player though for a stealth look and only up grade the speakers at all 4 corners. The fronts are 7" components (very rare size.) and the rears are 6x9'*.
