Complete Audio System Wiring Diagram!
« on: December 17, 2013, 07:48:07 PM »
Thank me later.

:)

I paid the $11 for access to the wiring diagrams online to solve my Amp/DSP problem.

Turns out the AMP/DSP are the same component.  Also looks like you can tap an unprocessed signal from the front via the Audio Control Module or back on the input side of the DSP/AMP.


Possible issue might be loss of volume control with tapping the signal pre-amp since the DSP/amp might control the volume digitally.  Have not verified this.  A work around is if your aftermarket DSP has a remote volume control, most do.

Talked to some other folks who have done installs on other vehicles such as the Flex and F150.  Apparently, there is a high likelihood that getting a signal pre-amp will result in a loss of volume control and SYNC capabilities because the AMP/DSP also acts like a computer combining the SYNC features with the audio signal prior to output.

Now you know why people either completely remove the HU or just get a signal post amp.

Recently completed my install and I recommend getting signal after the factory amp.  I used the Rockford 360.3.  Flattens out factory EQ and even gives you a amp turn on.  Check out Audison and JBL as well both make processors that would work well.

Any pics/audio of your installs, guys?  Hope you all are having a great weekend!

If tuned:  Take note of the strategy code as you return to stock (including 3 bar MAP to 2 bar MAP) -> take car in & get it serviced -> check strategy code when you get car back -> have tuner update your tune if the strategy code has changed -> reload tune -> ENJOY!

Bringing back an old thread.  Looking at the wiring diagram that is posted in the first post, do you think the wiring colors are the same for the 2015 XSport with the 12 speaker Sony setup?

I am really not happy with the volume level from the OEM setup and believe this is where I am going to start upgrading.
Thanks,
Stephen
