Default C6 Audio FAQ

4/16/2009
I just did a minor revamp. Removed a few old threads that don't really apply any more and tried to group the threads by topic a bit. Hoping that makes it easier for folks to find stuff.

Please do not ask questions in this thread, the purpose of this thread is to act as a repository of thread links to answer frequently asked questions, not to answer them. As I will not answer questions in this thread I would ask that if you need information these links do not supply please start a new thread or post your question in one of the linked threads. If you find a dead link or a suggestion for a thread that should be included you can feel free to post THAT in this thread. Thanks!

NO MATTER WHAT ANYONE SAYS YOU DO NOT NEED A CLEANSWEEP!!!!!!
I'm putting this right here because the question seems to come up time after time after time. Lazy installers that don't want to look things up will tell you this, as will Crutchfield advisors that flat out don't know. You do NOT need a Cleansweep no matter what they say. Click the link above to find out why.

Trouble with the Metra GMOS-04?
Looks like the Metra doesn't come with a relay for our application, and is probably the #1 reason folks have problems with the install.

6. A Relay is needed in the 2005-2007 Corvette. You will need to cut the blue/white wire in half
between the 16 way Molex and 24 way gray connector.
• Connect the blue/white wire coming from the 16 way Molex to pin 85 of the Relay.
• Connect the blue/white wire coming from the 24 way connector to pin 30 of the Relay.
• Connect pin 86 of the Relay to Ground.
• Connect pin 87 of the relay to fused 12 volt constant wire. Using tape or a wire tie securely the
Relay from moving around in the dash.
The relay can be had at Radio Shack, something like this should do the trick:

http://www.radioshack.com/product/in...rt&tab=summary

The pin numbers referred to in those instructions are standard numbers for relays and not related to the GMOS-04.

NEW INFO - STOCK AMP TRIGGER WIRE IN HARNESS!! 3-17-2009
The white wire in B3 of the 24 pin harness will work as an amp trigger. It has a delayed turn off and early turn on so the factory amp is alive for chimes. This is only for if you are adding an amp to a stock head, if you put in an afermarket head use the amp trigger from that.

Dan,

Thanks for taking the FAQ over. I just have no time these days and your persistance in ensuring the best info and support is available for the rest of the C6 owners has made you the best choice amoung so many.

I recently added a really obnoxious note at the top of the FAQ since installers with dubious qualifications keep suggesting Cleansweeps.

Also added a couple of other links in the last week so I thought I'd give the thread a bump to bring it to notice.

Default What's up with Peripheral?

I bought a Peripheral GMCO module to install a Kenwood DNX7100 in my C6. GMCO was advertised for the non Bose non Onstar base system that I have. The instructions say to cut off the RCA connectors for a non-Bose system and hook up the high output speaker connections instead. The Chevy manual shows only low level inputs to the U66 amp. Is Peripheral that far out to lunch?

Steve Germany has asked me to take over the C6 Audio FAQ so I have started this thread to replace his. The mods will soon un-sticky

his thread and sticky this one in it's place. I will try to spend some time very soon to verify links, remove dead links, etc. If you

have something you think should be included please either post a message in this thread or drop me a PM.

Thanks to Steve for taking care of it til now, he did a great job!

Default CD Changer for 2008 Convertible with NAV #17802225?

Has anyone added the 6 CD Changer to a C6 convertible (2008) with nav? - Part # 17802225 - I read recently that the unit supports MP3s although it’s not advertised that way.
I’m curious where the harness is (left or right storage bin and if anyone can confirm that it can play MP3s.
Thanks

Default Installing a factory Navigation unit in a C6 Corvette

I just want to thank everyone who posts on this site. I recently installed a factory OEM navigation unit in my 2005 C6 Coupe that was equipted with the Bose 6 disk changer. There are alot of posts reference this mod and i found this site to be a great source of information.

I documented the install to help anyone else out there thinking about doing the same install.

http://www.skyhighphotos.net/CorvetteNAV.htm

Site is full of info, including part numbers, diagrams, and lots of photos.

Enjoy

Added the relay information needed when installing a Metra GMOS-04.


Looks like the Metra doesn't come with a relay for our application, and is probably the #1 reason folks have problems with the install.

6. A Relay is needed in the 2005-2007 Corvette. You will need to cut the blue/white wire in half
between the 16 way Molex and 24 way gray connector.
• Connect the blue/white wire coming from the 16 way Molex to pin 85 of the Relay.
• Connect the blue/white wire coming from the 24 way connector to pin 30 of the Relay.
• Connect pin 86 of the Relay to Ground.
• Connect pin 87 of the relay to fused 12 volt constant wire. Using tape or a wire tie securely the
Relay from moving around in the dash.
The relay can be had at Radio Shack, something like this should do the trick:

http://www.radioshack.com/product/in...rt&tab=summary

The pin numbers referred to in those instructions are standard numbers for relays and not related to the GMOS-04.

I would like to add that the GMOS-04 from Metra doesn't work with the Kenwood 8120 or any other 5V or+ preout HU, because this device is only design to up to 4V.
When more than 4V are detected the unit goes to save mode....
I am returning mine...
