raoul5788 Newbie here, looking to install a sub in my 6 speaker setup. I have a 2014 Equinox 1LT. Is there a sub box behind the panel?
Thanks!
Followup: A little more research tells me there is a sub and enclosure in the back, but it's only used as part of the ANC system. If so, it must be wired to the front of the vehicle, so adding an amp for it can't be too complicated, no? Yes?

I have been looking for a product like this. I had one similar in my Dodge Charger that I traded in on my Equinox. Does this plug in between the radio and the factory wiring?
Thanks for posting this.So from the diagram it appears the signal harness from radio plugs to the female in this harness,then the male end goes into the black control box on vehicle.Then the RCA's get ran to the amp.Am I correct on this?

kastner03 yes plugs right in between the radio box and factory wiring eliminates any splicing or wire cutting

ANC was doing this . if I shut off vehicle with radio ON and start up vehicle I get NO bass/hum . not sure I wanted that he disconnected two wires that control the ANC . I get no bass/hum feedback... but with ANC disconnected I get a CONSTANT noise ( like riding in a shell ) sound ... when I turn off suv after 5 seconds amp powers off and everything is SUPER quiet ... hope im making sense here . what do you think
My only suggestion would be to tap the back door speakers for your signal. Front door speakers are used for phone, etc, back hatch sub is ANC, so the back door speakers are the only speakers left that their sole purpose is music...

freakbrian Do you have the Pionner system and are trying to get more power out of the sub? Or do you have the base model and are trying to use the ANC sub for music?

What about the ANC? If you go with an aftermarket DVC sub how do you wire it to both maintain the ANC and enjoy more power?
