Default Factory Amp

What'* the best way to by pass this stupid thing?

Because when I turn my radio up, it over loads or something, and then the speakers stop working and I only have subs, so then I have to turn my radio off and back on again and it'* just annoying and frustrating.

Best way to bypass please?

Only the rear. It'* the gain amp that screws us up, and it is only connected to the rear speakers. I wouldn't bothering finding some bypass thing, it takes 20 minutes to run wires to the back in our cars...

I don't even think he needs to do THAT. The rear speakers are dual voice coil, right? One coil is connected straight to the stereo (voice-grade freqs and higher as passed by the factory stereo) and the lows go to the gain amp, which from there go to the second voice coil. IF he is only using the pair that come from the stereo directly, he shouldn't need to bypass the gain control.

Ok, I have the FSM looking at the diagram right now. The stereo does NOT crossover frequencies and sends them seperately. BUT, from the looks of the manual, you can unplug the amplifier alltogether and not lose signal going to the rear speakers. On the left speaker, negative is yellow and on the right your negative is lt. blue in case you want to check your connections. But based on the FSM diagram, unplugging the amp only takes out the factory bass control function and nothing else. If you are running an aftermarket stereo with the harness adapter you should be fine.

EDIT: I left out some colors...Yellow and Brown are the ones you want to use on the left, Lt. blue and Dk. blue are on the right. Already stated which was negative
