Does any one have any idea how to disable a factory subwoofer on my 2001 tahoe its located in the back left of the cargo area .I tried to get to it but there is a bolt form inside the body frame that is for holding up the cargo net ...I am afraid of removing the bolt & losing down inside the truck(because it is very hard to get to) ...So I am trying to find another way to turn the bastard off.....Thanks for your help

I think your gonna have to just take it off and unplug the harness. Otherwise, cut the wires. I'd go with unplugging it.

problem is

having a hard time getting to the stupid harness ...because the wires to the stereo I cannot cut because they go to the factory amps ...In otherwords I do not see any direct wires to the wiring harness to the stereo area....I actually have the service information cd's from general motors up to 2005 this is the software they use at the dealerships & it doesnt show much but removing the speaker ...thanks

the nut on the back side of that cargo net holder is clipped on the body it wont fall. you can pull it apart with no worries( just turn the bass down on the radio?)

sweet thanks.... The Factory sub is blown thats why I want it off ...I have a boxed 15" sub I am putting in the back but I need to get a strong amp to push it which I am trying to do this week ...I had a pretty good setup before but it all got stolen 3 months ago & now I am just getting to replacing stuff ...but its been slow since they cut my overtime at work ...
