I eliminated mine last weekend...All you have to do is run new wire to the speakers. Just use the harness for battery, ground and ign. or dimmer if needed. run everything else new. Very time consuming but seems to be the only way around it.

Then your only hope is a converter...they need the factory amps though. Crutchfield has them. It is made by Scosche i believe. it is not cheap,$30-$50 just for a few months but at least it will work. If you go to crutchfield and do a live online chat they might be able to set you up or offer alternatives....they will try to get you to buy though, they're commission. Let us know if that helps!

I wouldnt spend 50 bucks just to by pass the amps. You can also buy a 4 channel amp for that. Just deal with it for a few months or run new wire. Thats basically the only choices you have

I love my new speakers! They did require some custom work in the back( hammer) because crutchfield gave me the wrong size for the rear speakers in their "fit" guide but i made them fit. as far as the tweeters go i messed up the front pretty bad but i will redo them when i get the new pods for the front. the rears worked fine. they sound incredible however the factory bass response is by far better than the aftermarket just because they recieved only bass frequencies and the only thing powering both sets is the V-Drive amp built in to the reciever. no ill just have to add a sub....darn

Thanks,
Ted
