Unless you're running only like a 100-200 watt amplifier, do not do this. Anything over that are you're risking electrical problems and/or a fire.

Install the system correctly by running a properly sized OFC wire (with an inline fuse) to the main battery under the hood.

Honestly all you would probably need is a different harness from gen5diy. My car didn't come with the DRLs, but mine stay on full brightness day and night with my headlights.

I just turned 22 on December 29, the day I picked up my Impala. Here in the US, to add the Centerpointe System for the 2017 Impala. It's about and additional 5-6 Grand. Because you have to add other packages just to get it. [emoji849] The factory one has plenty of punch, to it. One of the better ones that I've heard. And there's a Bose 100W amp in the trunk to.

Yes, it sounds pretty good for a stock system with just the 100 watt amp. Yeah, I was looking at those prices, just a couple mic, speakers, and a bigger amp is the difference. I may just end up looking into swapping the speakers and adding a sub. I'm not sure if that would mess with my warranty though. Also going to add the DRLS from the LTZ model and a 5500 K HID kit from theretrofitsource.com, since the projector housing optics are designed for HID and they have halogens in there. When it warms up that is. [emoji23]

impaler I agree, the non Bose 100watt system sounds pretty good to me too. Probably best non premium system I've had in a car.
6x9 in the front doors is kinda odd but it supplies more bass it seems.

Yeah. They had a few with the Bose system at the dealer, which I listened to. It does sound good! But unfortunately, the price tag for the added packages, just to get the system, wasn't going to work with the budget. [emoji19] So I was hoping there would be some info on audio installs for the 2015 - 2017 Impalas. But so far, I've come up with just about zilch. I even emailed Bose to see what I could do about it. If I could even order parts to have them installed into the car, but all they said was "they don't offer aftermarket systems". Which it's really not, since I'd just be ordering parts to put into a car they designed it for. [emoji23]I was thinking about putting a JL audio system into it. I do find it odd the use 6X9s for the front doors.
