-Our connectors simply snap onto your car's audio harness sections. The (5G-X3RCA) Input Harness has RCA's to plug directly into your amp via RCA cables for audio input. Our (X2) Cable is the output harness. Snap this harness onto the car's X2 connector and hardwire the 8 wires to your amp's speaker out terminals. The Two (X2A) Rear Speaker Harnesses features an inline filter and Allows our kit to power Both the sub and tweeter portion of your rear speakers. It also doubles as a rear speaker pigtail if you decide to replace your rear speakers. Simply snip off the ba speaker connector on each x2a and use that instead of cutting up your car's harness.

See our video here for a complete explanation of how it works
Do you own a new Camaro and feel your Boston Sound System is letting you down? Well now you have the ability to replace your weak stock amplifier with any 4 channel amplifier of your liking. We have developed a plug and play kit that connects to your new amp and interfaces with the stock audio harnesses and connectors. Most Importantly, You will not have to cut any of your cars wiring. You will not need to dicipher the factory wires or schematics. You will not have to run any new wiring through your car. You will not have to retain the factory amp and leave it partially connected to keep crazy things from happening or keep certian car functions working. Once disconnected, it can be completely removed from the car.
Our kit allows the complete removal of the stock amp. See video above. With your aftermarket amp connected via our kit, your speakers will get more power and cleaner signals. This allows for better clarity, and higher output levels. Plus, by having independent control of the amps settings, you will have complete control of your system for better overall sound reproduction. All functions of the car are retained with our kit. Chime, Onstar, backup sensors, etc still function as usual. Since the kit is plug and play and no wires were cut, you can change back to stock quickly and easily. Also, our kit is compatible with the factory head unit as well as any head unit installed using the Metra, Scosche, or Apline dash kits. In other words, it works the same, no matter what radio is installed in the dash. All it does is allow your amp to amplify the audio signal that is being sent by the radio.
This is a complete kit of just the required interface harnesses as mentioned. Some of you may already own our 4 channel X3 plug and play RCA harness that is included in the kit. If you already own this harness, there is no reason purchase another. You may simply de-select the X3 harness in the menu box and it will be deducted and removed.
PLEASE!! DO NOT let any sound shop hack up your wiring as if they think know how to change out the amp. And certianly don't let them "learn on the fly" with your Camaro as their guinnea pig. We have heard so many horror stories already of 'installs gone bad' simply because installers are not familiar with the Camaro's wiring. Even experienced installers have made major errors wiring up new Camaros. Just think if you take your car somewhere and they cut the ends off your harness--you will not be able to return it to stock easily by yourself. You will have to pay them again to undo they mess they made. Our kit is a small price to pay for some peace of mind knowing you can do it yourself and it will be done right. Get our kit and save yourself some time, money and possibly frustration.
My system kicks ass now. I just came in from my garage after listening to my system and it really sounds sweet.My GF says it sounds like you are at a concert when I crank the volume up.
Just wanted to say thank you Steve just finished installing my amp and sub thanks to the X3. I think this is the first time I have actually had my bass turned down passed 5 since I have owned her, lol sitting at -1 and loving it!
awesome job on a well crafted kit!
