So I haven't had any luck searching the ol internet for a good wiring diagram for a bose amp on my envoy. Trying to add an amp and sub to the existing setup. I found diagrams for 05+ envoy's but mine is completely different than that. I know GM blah blah blah go to a GM forum blah blah blah and I've tried that with no luck. Hoping someone on here has a link to a diagram or know how to get a hold of someone at Bose who could help. The stupid wiring harness has multiple matching wires which makes no sense to me why there are two different sets of green wires, 2 sets of blue wires, etc. I can see the speaker wires at the front door speaker and they are a thick green (like the ones on the harness) and a red wire (WTF) I don't have a red wire at the harness..... I haven't pulled the door panel off yet but just trying to find written info before I tear more panels off lol. I have an LOC to use so I can run the amp and sub but I heard you need to tap into the front door speakers instead of the rear speakers or else you lose bass when turning it up. I guess if it comes down to it i'm just gonna pop the door panel off and trace the wires but i'm hoping someone can get a legit diagram for this amp.... I figured I could have found it given I have the amp model number but nooooooo, that's not the case.....

Anyone even know why there would be 2 sets of the same colored wires anyway? Seems like an easy way to screw up wiring when they are the same color.

Bose have always been weird. I know Nissan Maximas had Bose speakers and each one came with its own little Bose amp.

Yeah, that's not it either. I've looked at probably 50 different wiring diagrams and none of them resemble what I have. All I need is the left front + and - or the right front + and - but I can never find a legit answer.... I'm about to start tearing every panel off.
