2017 LSV sound system problems

Recommended Posts

Double UP 1080

So I recently purchased my sixth malibu and am so disappointed with the way they changed the audio system...I always got the sound package with interior speakers and amp and installed my own amp/sub, tower speakers and amp for those.  It always blew away the factory systems, so I kept the amps, sub, tower speakers from my 2015 22 VLX.  

 First off, the tower is no longer pre wired.  The g 3.5 tower I am speaking of...I thought this was the only issue but looking into the amp board to wire my sub amp I realized it is no longer possible to hook up your own amp for sub or tower speakers.  Saving money and keeping your old amps no longer is a good idea since malibu has changed all of the wiring to harnesses and only go to their factory amps it seems.  No more Rca pre outs.  If anyone has any Intel or ideas of how to hook up a tower speaker amp and sub amp I would be ever so grateful!  There is a wiring harness labeled for tower behind the amp board which would be in place of the rca I'm guessing, but I would need the malibu wire harness and wires for tower speakers....as well as a new amp.  There seems to be nothing at all for the sub behind the amp wall, any idea of where this would be?  Again, I would need another new amp...when I have two perfectly good wet sounds amps but don't have the right connections.  So mad about this I want my old boat back!  Please help!

I know 11 pages is a lot to catch up on, there are converter cables to get you your standard RCA plugs for any non-DSP amp of any brand.

Yes thanks, I have read most of those already and just wanted to restart a new one and just see if there was a solution..thanks though!  May just order the necessary amps and wire harnesses from malibu.

The converter cable would work for the tower speaker harness I could see but there is nothing for the sub at all from the head unit, any ideas?

Take a look at my thread. I just completed my build and plugged into the factory harness while using non DSP amps.

The sub driver is part if the interior audio harness.
