Hey Everyone, I have decided to stick a bandpass box in the 9'er for some better lows and ive talked to a few people that have said you can wire it into the factory amp. Now I have the RB-1 Navigation System in the 5.9 and the factory Infinity Gold amplifier. How do I go about wiring the Pioneer amplified into the factory Infinity Gold amplifier? I know it can be done but im unsure as to how. Thanks!

all the chrysler radios i have ever seen are true amplified radios... meaning you do not need an amp to make them work. the infinty system in the jeeps and other vehicles amplify a powered signal.

after market radios have both the pre-out's and the line-outs.

if you want to grab the signals from the factory amp location you will still need to get a line-level convertor to change those signals down to RCA voltage. you also need to make sure you get the wires on the output side because if you dont the speakers in the car will get louder faster than the subs will.

some amps will have the option to run hi-level (line-level) right into them and that would work also with out needing the converter, but you will still need to hook up into the output side of the amp.

Been doing some research and it looks like the stock amp is a 6 channel 180 watt amp (so 30 watts/channel). That line level converter can handle 80W so a buddy of mine are thinking running it in bridged mode around 60W or so, so I think im ok? A buddy of mine is pretty damn good at this electronic stuff so he will be schooling me im sure. If that line level converter is what I need ill order it up

I was on WJJeeps and they have writeups on how to do this with the RB-1. They say there is a cable that plugs into the factory RB-1 Nav system stereo as a direct line converter to which you can wire in the amp from there.



Something like this I suppose^. Its an OEM1 plug converter but I cant seem to figure out the one I need or maybe im missing something. Heres the link to the site

Heres what I have found for the RB-1 connectors. And the back of the RB-1 where they go

Now thats both cables, and the OEM1 Bose adapter. Im not sure which makes more sense to do honestly. The RB-1 cables and stuff is really a nice idea and pretty straight forward but its about 150 bucks when all is said and done. This is versus the 55-60 bucks for the other setup. Whats everyones thoughts?

Ive used them on other cars before.... sound quality is affected, however most people dont hear the difference. if your an audio nerd you will hear it. I would go with the other option because your not taking an amplified signal back to pre-amp out ..just to amplify it again make sense? In the long run I personally would be much happier with the other unit and not a line out converter box. just my $.02

Well as it turns out my 1998 Infinity Wiring Diagram is the same as the 1999-2004's. The only difference is the 18 pin connector on the 1999-2004 #1 pin being the PCI Bus which on mine is empty. Other than that everything lined up perfectly. Heres what I did...

Heres the wiring diagram



I used the Scosche Line Level Converter and wired it into the output side of the Infinity Gold Amplifier. The remote turn on for the Pioneer amplifier needed to be wired to the #13 pin on the input side of the Infinity Gold connector.



The lines on the Line Level Converter were labeled since I only had one color of stranded wire.



Then I just simply wired everything else in and ran all the wires for a clean look. I will eventually add wire loom to them to clean it all up.



And the final product when all was said and done.



It sounds pretty decent actually, its not too overpowering nor too little. After some extensive tuning I think its just right ;)
