I have the stock single disc from my 06'R/T......I want to use it in my winter beater.....aside from getting my hands on a factory pigtail for the rear do I have to get a factory amp to use it or will the head unit power the speakers?

Headunit should power the speakers fine as the headunits are the same between the SE,SXT,RT etc where the SE/SXT don't have the amp option and are a base 4 speaker system.. (matching headunits models of course a REF is an REF is an REF)
Watch for power though as the 12v switched ISN'T 12v in the factory deck. Aftermarket headunits need to steal 12v from the lighter etc because of this.
yeah, but he wants to put the stock head unit in another car.
What does the factory deck use for power then?And what do I need to bring it down?
The radio needs the CAN signal to turn on, it doesn't just get 12V w/ the key on :-(

So in other words outside of an LX it's a brick?
May have to try one of the two out in the garage on the bench and see what I can get or not get to work..
Let me know.......the 8-track is getting pretty old.
Eric it uses a switched neg to turn on and off with key or door open.
i'll try to find you a replacement harness from the head and build a relay for you.
power is a straight 12v +

this will plug into the rear of your radio and then the switched red wire will be converted over to switched ground viva a relay.
on the amped units yes big problem-but the non amped units have a built in amp just like any after market radio does. the power for battery is straight 12 volt and the switched ign is looking for a ground just like the GM's from 03 and up to current year.
ok....wait....this came out of my R/T which had the BA sound.....that would be amped......no? Which means it wouldn't wwork right?
