    Line out converter

    I'm trying to find a line out converter that plug into the factory harness and radio. I have a full system now, but I want to switch back to the stock radio and keep the amp (5channel Power1000). I don't know of any that will work with the bose system without cutting and splicing, which I don't want to do. An iPod input/USB input/stereo jack would also be nice. Lo-lyf, do you know of one? I've seen some by PAC but they say they are not compatible with the premium stereo.

    Ive never known of one that is just plug and play (but I have been out of the game for 4 years now). Most of what I have used have to be wired in. One way to do it if you don't want to strip wires back and solder is to find male and female harnesses and make your own plug n play setup. I have also heard others say that bose needs special LOCs to work. Personally, up to 2008, I used universal LOCs wired at the amp output wires (under the cupholder) and had absolutely no issues. Using these wires you already have the frequencies you want, thus eliminating the need for crossovers. However, if you are keeping your 5 channel then you will bypassing bose all together anyway. What I would do is find the harness that plugs into the factory radio and wire LOCs to speaker out leads, the harness that plugs into the factory harness and get your powers/etc. from there. leave the way you have the speaker outputs from the aftermarket amp how you have them now. I think I have something that will work for you. What year vehicle are we talking about here? of course let me brainstorm a bit and I'll figure out a seamless way to do it and leave your factory wiring intact.

    2004 ext cab silverado with bose and onstar. I have seen something by PAC that plugs into the factory stuff for iPod, but didn't know if there was a line out like that.

    Cool, too bad it isn't an 07+ non-bose, I have a harness that could be cut and modified to do what I am bout to tell you how to do. I have never done this before so I cannot verify that it will work.
    the things you need:
    metra 70-2003 gm00-06 aftermarket radio harness (female)
    metra 71-2003 gm00-06 factory radio harness (male)
    (2) line out converters, three if you want separate sub control

    Wire your 71-2003 and 70-2003 together leaving the speaker leads disconnected (I would verify both visually and via multimeter to make sure all wires are in their correct locations and all factory wires have a wire on the aftermarket harnesses). The line output converters will wire to the speaker leads of the 71-2003. The speaker leads on the 70-2003 will be for your leads coming from the amp out to all four speakers.
    There is a harness directly behind your a/c controls attached to the back of the subdash. This harness is for bose. Disconnecting this harness and plugging in the 70-2003 will completely bypass the bose system. I believe (not 100%) that bose and non-bose use the same radio, I would verify before proceeding with this venture. Your onstar and auxiliary will be in the smaller harness of the two. I hope this helps and if I wasn't enough help, sorry in advance.

    In theory, the same method would work. However, I don't know of a quick and easy Bose bypass on 07+. You could essentially do the same thing using the harnesses under the cup holder if you could find the necessary harnesses.

    Any time. Sorry I don't know more about the 07+ trucks. I quit the stereo biz in mid-2008.

    I think many people had to quit different industry's about then. Wish we could figure out this damn mess and get back to having fun instead of dealing wi this crapy economy. Still seems like you have a good knowledge base for being out of the game.

    Awesome, thanks for the PNs. I had been trying to do this exact thing for a while now, just could never find a harness side connector to plug into the radio. Seems pretty straight forward and simple to do. As far as the radios being the same, they aren't. I tried my brother's '06 deck(non-bose) in mine and it did not work. All the radio functions worked, but no sound. There may be a wire missing to turn the bose amp on or something. I may get an iPod interface and hack it up so I can have my iPod and keep my system with the stock deck. Now if I could figure out how to add USB input I would be golden!
