Another JK stereo wiring question - stock infinity amp inputs
Good day folks,
I have the 2008 Sahara with infinity system and sub. No Steering wheel controls or u-connect. I'm planning on a full upgrade of everything, but cant afford the whole shebang at once - so I'm thinking about doing it in phases..
I have a call into my dealer to see if I can cut my amplifier wiring harness without voiding my extended warranty (I dont believe wiring is covered, so I think I can splice in if I want).
Here is my question:
Are the stock infinity amplifier inputs line level or speaker output level?
I'm thinking about just swapping the head unit out, and tying into the stock amplifier(s) for now and running just two channel (front + sub) as the wiring to my soundbar is bad - I have a dead channel that just buzzes.
Then, down the road when I save up a bit more, I will get a 5 channel amp and run from my head unit pre-outs and bypass the stock amplifiers. Running all new heavy gauge speaker wires with new speakers as well..
My goal for now is to add the new head unit and *not* buy an expensive wiring harness - since I dont have u-connect or steering wheel controls, so I could care less about keeping factory wiring - I just want to splice into the amplifiers for now.
Clear as mud?
So - once again - is the stock amp line level or speaker level input?
