Premium audio systems are generally name brand systems (such as JBL, Bose, Rockford Fosgate, etc) that have been installed inside a vehicle when it leaves the factory. Often they more advanced systems, complex wiring, factory amplifiers, and other features that can make installing aftermarket component difficult.

Perfect Fit

December 31, 2015

The Metra 70-2054 fit perfect in my GTO's dash. The finish on the item was almost a perfect match.. Easy install once you remove the factory radio.

A shopper on Aug 12, 2014
Best Answer: Hello,

Assuming your Tahoe has the RPO Code Y91 AND you wish to bypass the amp, then Yes. Please refer to the manual - linked below - to get familiar with the product and get details about your vehicle's compatibility.

I have a 2003 GMC Envoy XL, w/Premium Bose System & OnStar(no service).I'm installing a new JVC KD-R330 deck. I don't need a GMOS-04 interface if I buy the metra 70-2054 harness, right?

Best Answer: Sonic Electronix may not want me to tell you this, but there's an infinitely cheaper and easier solution to buying these adapters for most factory GM stereo installs.

Check your factory stereo harness, and look for either a pink or orange (it depends, if need be see if you can find a wiring diagram for your vehicle) wire, if you splice this wire to the Blue remote turn on wire, your stereo will then work great. I bought this harness for my dad's 2002 Chevy Avalanche, but for some reason these harnesses had messed up wiring diagrams so I ended up just sticking with the pink wire trick.

Hope this helps
