2009-2010 Dodge Ram (Alpine) Amp Wiring Diagram

Just in case anyone needs it here's the diagram for our trucks for all the speakers. DG is Dark Green, GY Is Grey, Yel is Yellow, LV is Lavender.

Don't mind my sloppy notes on the diagram. This diagram came from ALL DATA by the way.

It's the color on the face of those ricers when we blow right by them :D:D:D

Would the colors be the same for the non-alpine models?
Thanks

Don't quote me on this but two different people I spoke to stated the wiring colors are the same on the NON Alpine models, but the polarity is reversed on the Non-Alpine models....meaning that say the Passenger side Dark Green wire with yellow stripe would be POSITIVE, and the Dark Green stripe with Lavender/Purple would be NEGATIVE.

As you can see on the diagram, the wire colors for the Alpine model are the same, but the Lavender is POSITIVE while the Yellow is NEGATIVE.

I have the Alpine system in my truck and want to add aftermarket amp and subs but keep the other speakers and nav head unit. Is just adding the rca line out converter OK? If so, is a simple model good or is there a premium model that needs to be used? Any tips would be appreciated.

Jared (Dodgeman) can answer this question best but from my understanding our Ram's only give a full range signal to THE FRONT DOOR SPEAKERS. That full range signal is 20hz-20khz so those front speakers HAVE to be Tapped in order to get the full range signal. The dash and rear speakers only produce signals in specific ranges/frequencies so you can't tap them or you'll get no bass. I've learned a lot from members on this forum and the basis of this is that you can use a LOC, but you still need to tap to get that full range signal from the front doors, one way or the other.

The stock Alpine speakers are pretty bad..no real clarity with mids or highs so not sure why you would want to keep them, but either way you'll still need to get that full range signal to your aftermarket amp no matter what route you go. Good luck.
