2008 Malibu VLX Stereo Factory Wire Connections


Recommended Posts

My 08 VLX has a basic stereo with 4 speakers. I want to add an 2 amps and tower speakers. My question is, next to the batteries, there are 4 red wires (look like factory installed) not connected to anything. Are these for the amp? are they input or output plugins?

Thanks, I will try to get pictures this weekend as I am sure that would assist, but for now any thoughts would be appreciated.

Not prewired for amp upgrades in any way, other than pre-outs from the head unit.

I recommend a reputable stereo shop that works on boats for your upgrade.

Thank you for the response. Are you saying that they are Pre Amp Outs? is there a difference between pre Outs vs. pre amp outs?
