Amp Bypass Part Numbers and Wiring Questions

Hey guys, I have some Amazon $$$ burning a hole in my pocket so I figured I'd finally get around to bypassing my factory BA amp to make use of the Boston SE speakers that I have and finally get full range sound on those front speakers too!

I'm thinking about this amp: Amazon.com : Rockford Fosgate R250X4 Prime 4-Channel Amplifier : Vehicle Multi Channel Amplifiers : Car Electronics

But though I had the part numbers for the Metra bypass harnesses written down somewhere, I can't find them! I'll also be getting the Fosgate T-splitter to split my 4ga power wire to both the sub amp and this amp (in the cargo tray).

Anyone with those part numbers handy or any other helpful links would be much appreciated! Additionally, how exactly should I go about wiring the 4 front speakers up to this amp in addition to the 2 rear!?

Thanks in advance!

Re: Amp Bypass Part Numbers and Wiring Questions

Only Amp Bypass harness I am aware of as far as plug'n play is Part Number 70-6507, for 1999-2004 Grand Cherokee (WJ). Pages 79-80 in the Turbo wires section. Also page 171 in the Application section in the back. I can't attach the 2013 catalog I have because it is to big, but you could call Metra from the catalog number from the pages I did attach, as it does say TBA next to the WK years. So they might have one by now, or soon. Hope this might help.

Nope.

Edit: I did find out that PAC makes a Canbus adapter unit to convert the Canbus sound into normal speaker inputs...but the reviews on those devices are pretty hit or miss and they cost in between $80-100. Considering the fact that the amp I was going to get was like $110, I decided it wasn't worth the effort.

I'll just upgrade to a real headunit in the future and bypass the whole system at that time.

Re: Amp Bypass Part Numbers and Wiring Questions

Speaking of which, I have had my eye on this little gem for a minute or two:

DEH-80PRS - CD Receiver with 3-Way Active Crossover Network, Auto EQ, and Auto Time Alignment | Pioneer Electronics USA

Beauty of something like this is that I can "clean up" my signal chain by doing away with the head-unit to factory amp to processor to aftermarket amp. Here, you just go from the head-unit straight to the aftermarket amps and it will do alot of similar things that my processor does now. Not all, but most. Another thing is the din size will allow me to put an full size 11 meter (CB) under it in the factory location of the dash panel. There are others like this out on the market, not just the Pioneer. Although for the money, I think the Pioneer has the potential to offer a really good value. I still can't say for sure, as I have not been able to test or evaluate it. If I could figure out a way to keep my steering wheel controls and back-up camera, I'd be game to try, as those are the two features I really would want to keep. The NAV and UConnect are great, but I can live without them if I had too.

Re: Amp Bypass Part Numbers and Wiring Questions

Has anyone else found any more info on bypassing the stock amp but still utilizing the factory headunit? I'm thinking about going this route until my head unit craps itself, as I like the UConnect and Nav that's built into my 05 REC.

Re: Amp Bypass Part Numbers and Wiring Questions

Offhand no. The only options I'm still aware of is a new head unit with the "talk boxes" to keep steering wheel controls and possibly the rear view camera, or doing a DSP post factory amp.
