PAC AP4-CHY41 any experience???

I am looking to run my T1500.1 and SSA XCON 12 with the factory stereo. Anybody know if this PAC Module works to allow factory highs still with aftermarket bass?

I have this piece for my build, but I have aftermarket highs as well. But I know you retain the factory amp with this, so I'm sure you can still use your highs. Call PAC and ask.

yes, technically you could leave everything as is and use the PAC as glorified LOC.

Thanks for the answers, I bought it as it has expansion for other amps and an easy install rather than tapping 8 sets of wires.

Now where to put a T1500???

Re: PAC AP4-CHY41 any experience???

All installed, have some tuning to do as the output signal to the RCAs is very strong.

Still have an issue and I'm wondering if anyone has had the same.

I connected the remote wire to the PAC Module remote provided, but the amplifier stays constant on, Jeep off or not. I bought a circuit breaker for the power wire of the build so I just push the disconnect button so it doesn't drain my battery. I'm calling PAC tomorrow and will update if I don't get any feedback here.

Re: PAC AP4-CHY41 any experience???

Update:

Called PAC and told them the wire had 11.3VDC when the Jeep was off, and they said it needed to be returned. My installer friend advised against it, as these are commonly backordered, and all other features were as described.

I re routed the remote wire to the auxiliary electrical outlet (cigarette lighter) in the rear, as it is one of the only accessory wires in the truck. Worked like a champ PINK/YELLOW with a tap splice. It was easier than running it through the Jeep anyway, by a long shot.

For those that wonder:

Pull out the weather stripping around the subwoofer cover panel, pull on the back of that panel no need to remove the whole thing. If any yellow clips stay, pull them out and slide into the panel when you reinstall.

You will be able to get a wire low and out to behind the rear seat area, or into the spare tire compartment easily. Once you have the wire ran, grab the cigarette lighter end of it and splice into the pink/yellow wire.

That's what I used to wire up the LED kit for my subwooofer build.
