Easy way to swap out OEM BA amp in trunk?

Call me a wiring illiterate...

Is there an easy way to replace the factory amp with an Alpine V12 I have sitting on a shelf from a previous install? Should I in the first place? Obviously it's far from plug-n-play. Wiring harness adapters or something? Any leads in the correct direction(s) would be appreciated.

I wouldn't recommend taking the amp completely out. The amp controls some functions you may not want to loose.

Ok then... Can I feed the OEM amp into the V12 and then to the speakers? Is it even worth the bother in the first place. The stereo is actually much better than I expected but I know what the V12 is most likely capable of adding.

BTW? What functions would I possibly lose?

Sorry, feel like a newbie.

Door chimes, bluetooth,onstar,and others I am not positive on this just my take on looking at the wiring diagram.You can run a after market amp. I tapped into the signals of the amp and ran into a rockford 360.1. I am only running a sub right now but my alpine V12 is a five channel amp witch will be powering Fronts,rears,center, and sub.

If your Alpine has Hi-Level inputs you can run the Factory output wires right intot he input and then out fromt he alpine to the speakers.


If it doesnt you can buy a Hi-Level to Low-lever converter for 15-20 bucks at any car audio store (maybe even best buy/Fry's w/e you got). Then run RCAs to teh amp and outt o the speakers.
