Default New '94 SSEI owner

After owning 3 caddy'* (last (which is currently for sale is a '89 fleetwood) I went to a carlot looking at a '93 Cadillac STS, but it had too many small problems so decided too leave it be, as I was leaving this car caught my eye, I loved the look, was hooked, bought it and am loving it!! Only been 4 days but am loving it, the factory stereo was defective so am in middle of adding amp and subs

'94 SSEI gold w/tan leather.

Sweet! The STS was one of the cars I was looking for, but I always had my heart set on an SSEi. I couldn't find an STS in decent shape, anyway, and I'm glad now.

Welcome to the club!

Well still loving it, but am now finding myself looking for things too mod. & fix (e.g. am working on stereo (weird speaker wiring , 4 wires per rear???) and noticed that the tire inflator doesn't function either, I also find the engine guttsy only when it wants too be, but this is probably tuning/cleaning required). Still haven't seen any others in the same colour (gold), the majority seem too be either green or white.

Overall very happy.

If you have the subwoofer control, your rear speakers have dual coils, one for the bass and one for the rest.

Default rear speakers

Yes, I have the gain control, but aftermarket cdplayer (factory cdplayer was jammed on scan). Can I still use this gain control with the amp/subs & 6x9'* I'm going too put in???

That lever is hooked to a subwoofer amplifier. If you are adding new subs with their own amplifier it will probably render the control useless, unless you want to rig something up.

The original stereo system with the subwoofer is decent, I am happy with mine. When I got the car it had the cassette player, I did some research and found a refurb CD player that is the same as the original, so it all was plug and play.

Don't throw away the factory CD player, they are hard to get. You should get it repaired.

If you are doing new audio and not using old stuff you will need to run new wires, and bypass or remove the old amps. It'* good for stock but not as good as aftermarket. If you like the slider, you can prob do some custom wiring, or replace it with a remote **** from an amp. Those CD players are worth a lot to people!
