aftermarket cd player + factory BOSE amp
I know there'* a lot of people here who are good with aftermarket installations for cd players with factory amplifiers. On the CTS, the BOSE amplifier is responsible for controlling volume, DSP, EQ, FADE, Balance, etc through data bus communications. The question I have, is how do I get a low-level output from an aftermarket headunit? Speaker-level connections are high-level and I don't want to damage the amp. For the CTS, the only way to keep the factory steering wheel controls, and DIC, is to keep the factory BOSE amp. There are only four input wires to the amp (left +,-) and (right +,-). I don't think speaker-level inputs would be a good idea for the amp. Wouldn't it fry it? How do you do an aftermarket headunit + factory bose amp on the Bonneville and other GM cars? I know these too have low-level inputs for the BOSE amp.
