Question 08 Silverado Bose system

I am installing 2 - DC audio level 3 10's with a MB Quart 1500.1 amp in my 08 Silverado crew cab ltz with bose.

Question is does anyone have a wiring diagram for a 08 silverado with bose system? Bose sub and amp are in center console but i need to know what color the wires are going from the amp to the sub so i can attach my LOC from there.

I am told this is the best signal wire to catch for a LOC for my RCAs. I plan on extending the bose sub woofer wires to the rear for the LOC and using a shorter RCA cable.

Any help is appreciated.

I've dealt with a few of those aggravating bose systems in the past and they can be a pain. Upon reading the post, my first thought was to tell you to check http://www.the 12volt.com, but I just did and they don't have anything listed for your truck. Here's an old school alternative: If you can locate the amplifier and get a good look at all wires providing input/output to the doors, rear, sub, then that could possibly mean that you could find out which is for the sub through a process of elimination. Remove the sub from the enclosure and see what color wires are attached to it and there you go!!! Often times factory wire colors remain the same throughout the system. I've had to pull door panels and rear deck to see which worked for each speaker in cars where I had to bypass the bose factory amp to run aftermarket equipment and didn't have a wiring diagram. However, I've always been told that an amplified signal is the worst for input for a LOC because it can introduce cray noise, fedback, etc. I was taught to find the input section of the factory amp and take my inputs from there. Hope this helps, man. Take it easy!

Anyone else have input on this (not saying your wrong just wanna make sure). Ive gotten mixed answers. Some say after amp before sub and some say before amp to catch signal wires for LOC.

So they said before or after the amp?

Also does anyone know how to boost the volume on a bose system. When i turn it up it doesnt get much louder as i get past the 1/2 way mark. I know bose is suppose to be quality sound but mine just doesnt sound as loud as the other OEM bose systems (as in highs and mids).

That Im not to sure. Im running an EQ also with my setup and it gets lound just not as clean yet because of the amplified signal.
