Yepp thx got everything done I just tapped the stock wiring just ran the red/green to the crossover and made a new 16awg wire for the tweets left the rear tweets bose and threw everything in works damn good and sounds Amazing compared to those paper bose speaker with no subs only thing is it took me and a a friend about 8 hours and I didnt doc $hit like I said I was. mostly because I was being picky about where to run wires etc. but all is good now loving my new bumping system. still feels like I may need the Lci6 line out converter thing because the fronts seem like they aren't getting enough juice they bump nice and clear but it feels like they got more in them.

For guys in the future that dont want to run new wires just tap the bose wires and run a crossover and install new tweets and you should be good to go thats all I did.

thanks for the help guys!

P.S. solder all your connection take the time to do it clean and right I did (minus running new wire.)

Rear: Infinity Kappa 682.9cf
Frontal amp: NEW BOSS CXX2404 4CH

You get what you pay for. Infinity makes great stuff. Boss, Pyle and rando-nonames do not.

Side note, few weeks back I had a customer bring me one of those no-name eBay Chinese Android units to install in...a Silverado I think? $130 in parts + $100 in labor. Unit turns on, shows the splash screen....and never anything else. Ouch. I felt bad for the kid, but hey, not my fault. All my connections are soldered and heat shrunk. Unit gets power fine. It's a software issue my man.

Hey d_extreme how'd your head unit work out? I really only want a tablet as a head unit, with a 3.5mm out to some kind of amplifier that can then split the audio out to my 9 BOSE speakers.
