Hey guys...I have an 89' Bonne SSE, with the Performance Sound option, and I have a bundle of questions I was looking to clarify. Here we go
I have an aftermarket deck, and I did not install it myself. Regarding the gain control, it is wired to an amp under the passenger seat if I'm correct? What speakers in the car are wired to this amp? When they installed the deck, they told me the "amp" in the car wouldn't work with aftermarket decks, and it was making a humming sound. They replaced it. Are there two amps in the Bonne? Is the one under the seat the only one, or some seperate amp for this gain control?
If I still have this amp under the seat for the gain control, would it be wired to my aftermarked deck? Or would I have to do this myself? To my understanding I can use this amp under the seat to wire up to a subwoofer amp in the trunk and the gain would control it?
Basically, I'm asking for a rundown of how the Performance Sound system works in my Bonne SSE.
Also, I've noticed the lack of bass output since I got the aftermarket deck. It'* a Panasonic CQ-C1300U. With the bass set to +12db (max) and the treble -12db (min) it has decent bass. Is there any reason for this to happen? After reading some posts here it is to my understanding that the bonneville has good stock speakers, for the performance system. The headunit has 50wx4 output and a dual preamp.
whew...that was a mouthful.
Thanks for anyhelp guys!
