Want to add 30 watt amp to 1989 1500GL radio

Postby my-89 » Fri Dec 12, 2014 12:13 am



I want to add 30 watt amp to 1989 1500GL radio. Have amp wired and installed in trunk box, wires bundled and taped, all attached to bike. As I started to splice wires into radio unit, the color codes from the speakers did not match color codes from radio. Does this mean that there is an inline amp that Honda incorporated into system? If so, does anyone know what colors from speakers coincide with color from the radio??...does the colors change at the inline amp (if there is one)?...if so, what color from radio matches what color from inline amp?....also, where would this be located on my bike????.definitely in the dark here!!!!

There's not a stock inline amp on your bike. Maybe this will help.
