Infinity amplifier location?
New here. I have a 1997 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 regular carb short bed with an Infinity sound system. I replaced the factory radio when the display went dead. The Sony replacement rebooted itself every so often, and now I lose the passenger side speakers from time to time. I also sometimes get some bad noise out of the passenger side. Thinking my Sony radio was crap I bought a Pioneer radio. No random reboots so far but I'm still having trouble with the passenger side speakers, so I suspect what I really have is an Infinity amplifier issue.
I would love to put my hands on the Infinity amplifier in my truck but I haven't found it yet. I've been searching the internet off and on for weeks and haven't stumbled on any good clues about the amplifier location. Some sites say it's behind the passenger kick panel, but I've pulled that (it was easy) and it's not there. Some sites say it's behind the glove box, but when I pull the glove box there's still no access behind it.
Yes I know I should run wire and replace speakers. I'm not a high wattage stereo aficionado, my truck's ugly and I have about 157,000 miles on it. Before I go to the effort and expense of running wire and replacing speakers I'd like to put my hands on the Infinity amplifer and make sure I've got good connections and no obvious wiring issues. Is there a way to get to it without pulling the whole dash out of the truck? Does anyone know where it is?
