OK lets play "what if"...

what if I was using an aftermarket head unit, and everything else was OEM- would the gain slider be functional?

OK then, heres the tentative plan

- install the new HU and SWI
- modify the pioneer 6x9s to allow using the factory amp (restore OEM harness)

I hope the OEM amp wont hurt the sound

if you use the amp you can use amp to power the 6x9'* and then the Higs to power the tweets
