For those of u looking to run a power wire. Theres a great access point to run large wires behind center console. To the right of the gas pedal.

Having a tone and volume problem with my 2018 impala premier, the volume gets low and the radio sounds flat the balance changes left to right and the radio just sounds flat (like a cheap radio) and will slowly go back to a pretty good sounding radio after I come to a complete stop, honestly, my 2017 ford xlt 150 city truck sound far better, so far the Radio screen , Radio control module, and the Shark fin antenna have been replaced and the problem still exist, the problem is intermitting, sometimes very noticeable and other times not so noticeable, anyone else have had this problem?

Go in the menu system and turn off the auto volume, it may help the issue. I never use it, I find it annoying.

Thanks for the suggestion Bowtie396, and sorry for the delay in thanking you! unfortunately that was tried after the first dealer visit, I am now working with a third dealer in the hopes that they can fix the problem (car is under factory warranty) I like the car so much that I might just void the warranty and fix it with the information that I can get on this site, Thanks again

Factory amp may be the issue.

Located in the rear right by the tail light.

I have a 2019 premier and no issues in my system.

If you choose to upgrade ur system and bypass the factory amp all together.

The best way to do it is to pick up a NAVtv unit (gm650) is the part number. Not cheap tho, they run about $500

But worth every penny.

I have one in my car and it took me 10 min to put it in.

Anyone know if the M650-GM or AX-DSP-MOST1 work with NON-bose systems? I have a '17 2LZ without Bose. It indeed does have a factory amp in the right rear of the trunk.

According to the site, NO.

NOTEs:

- NON-BOSE vehicle equipped with CarPlay or Android Auto are NOT COMPATIBLE.

- BOSE-equipped vehicles with CarPlay / Android Auto are compatible.

- Some NON-BOSE systems may require a tuner-swap, which cost $200 with the return of the original tuner. Some GM vehicles have a known factory bug which produces a small issue when this module is installed. Contact NAV-TV for more information.

In this type situation Id highly recommend the audio control lc7i for upgrading sound system. Works like a charm. Theres a good amount wiring involved but once in it is a fantastic piece to make ur system work properly
