Ok. Well being that the signals must be split at some point I have to suspect its possible to keep all the speakers in use by using the wires in the harness as opposed to the pre outs correct? There's only front left and right and rear left and right wires in the harness yet all 10 speakers are working. My first inclination is to detach the plug from the harness on the factory amp and splice all the wires together, effectively bypassing the amp. I would've already done this if I knew what wires are what on that particular harness but they aren't labelled. The 2 speakers in the front doors are blown so if I'd have to lose any of them, those are my first choices. I'm up in the air at this point. All I know is I want to listen to my music uninterrupted so I'm ready to do something now. What route would u suggest? I'm not in a position to purchase another amp so lets count that out for now.
