well, my DD (2001 GP GT), has had some "minor" factory audio issues :rotfl:.. the car has OnStar, steering sheel controls, is nonBOSE/Monsoon, has RAP's, and is pretty much like our GMT's, just a little bit older... my front 2 door speakers and tweeters were blown, and some buttons on the steering wheel werent working... so i was like F*** it, let me spend some of my hard earned money...

soooooo... i went and bought and installed everything yesturday, and i am more then impressed with all of it... it does exactly what i wanted it to do and then some... my GP is my DD, so i didnt want anything too crazy.. just basic stuff... no bass, no complicated harness', and didnt care if i lost steering wheel controls, RAP's, etc... But with the cheapy $15 harness, guess what... i retained all my RAP's, chimes, and my stereo stays on until i open my door, just like factory... I love this car :rotfl:.. i guess with the GP, the RAP's are controlled through the BCM... so unless you have BOSE, basic wire harness' are ok to use... :yes:

Items that i bought...

Sony CDXGT56UI AM/FM/CD Detachable Faceplate, front auxiliary input, MP3/WMA/AAC playback, USB 1-wire for iPhone/iPod, Sirus XM sat radio connector ready, suppplied wireless remote..... $79.99

Rockford Fosgate R152-S Prime Coaxials 5.25" Full Range Coaxial (w/tweeters) 35W RMS/70W Peak for my 2 front doors.... $50.00
GM4001 GM Harness 701858... $9.85
993320 Pontiac Kit...$15.93
ADGM1 Antenna Adapter 40GM10... $8.95

so for my grand total plus tax, i paid $169.70 and i installed it all myself... thats a deal in my book any day... and like i said... it does what i wanted it to do... has my front mount USB so i can listen to my flash drives and i have sound at all the speakers now and it absolutely SCREAMS... it was driving me nuts having 2 blown door speakers lol... im sure everyone knows what the pieces look like taken off, but here are some pix anyway...

Awesome work! I love the setup. How do the fosgates sound (tweet wise) ? I was thinking of picking some fosgate tweeters up but wasnt sure

They absolutely scream.. no feed back or static noise what so ever when I crank them up... im sure you know what I mean lol.. but for what I paid for them.. I am not complaining at all...

Thx Ed.. thats exactly what i was thinking too... i took $250 with me to the local stereo store that my friend works at (and no, i did not get his discount lol, he's an installer in the back, not a salesman)

but when i saw how cheap that stuff was... i just couldnt pass it up... and like i said... its my DD... so didnt want bass, etc... just plain jane... as long as i had highs and a usb port, i was golden :rotfl:
