amps and head units
ok so I read on another post that by removing the stock radio unit, you no longer get the beeping to notify you of headlights remaining on, door ajar, key in the ignition, etc... also, you'd need a 200.00 module to still use your steering wheel radio controller. well i say to hell with that. I've yet to disassemble the dash of a 2003 silverado because i'd like to keep those accessaries in tact if at all possible. does the factory head unit have RCA plugins for an amp? anyone out there with suggestions?

The factory stereo in my 2007 classic has no extra connections whatsoever.
I too would consider getting a new head unit, however I would lose the use of the stereo module in the back seat, and not to mention the steering controls.

woops, turns out the truck I was getting was a 2000 1500 silverado and the chimes still work when I took out the radio but unfortunately, i accidentally grounded a hot wire and now i have no instrument panel backlights and no break lights... sigh.. this was suppose to be an easy swap and pop i've done a 100x. I doubt I'll get any help about the situation but who knows.. in the process of checking fuses

After my DVD flip out was stolen outta my 1997 Suburban, I put the factory back in and hooked a Hi-low adaptor up just to show that I'm still dumpin and they didn't get everything.
I would say to google it, but i got mine from a local stereo shop and had it as a back up.
never mind, heres the link

If you get a single RCA out it goes to whatever speakers you want its your choice either the rear or fronts, some have multiple RCA outs I used one from Monster and I just tapped into my rear wires99 K1500 Suburban LT "THE BEAST"
