01 X w/ Premium Sound - How to install radio?
2001 Excursion with Premium sound (Amp'd speakers) and factory TV.
Bought a wiring harness from Walmart, lists for this truck. However not premium sound.
1 of the 2 connectors in the dash, the walmart harness will fit, the other it will not.
I cannot find a straight answer anywhere on the internet on how to wire the alpine headunit I've got to make work.
-One forum said the factory amp only runs the rear speakers (3 sets, so I assume very very rear)
-Another forum said the amp runs all speakers
-install doctor talked about a conversion harness or manually rewiring the amp to work...
I just want the headunit to play the speakers... That's fine for now... Maybe down the road I'll amp the speakers but alpine headunit x 6 Kicker speakers + the 2 12s I've got sitting waiting for it will be PLENTY loud.
Do I really need a harness? Do I need to just wire it and see what happens? Do I need to re-route some wires from factory amp?
