Hola Team Jones, thanks for the update. Yes the Ben-Hur dose that anyway if Im playing music or on the phone the sensors will beep if Im to near to something. Ive been in contact with the developers of Ben-Hur who I know very well, they agree with me that its not a problem what I plan to do. They also advised me I can do away with the stock amp and connect the sensors to the the outgoing loom to the speakers or have 2 total separate speakers for the parking sensors hidden away in the front doors or under the dash.
The Ben-Hur panel is a total stand alone system and dose not have any direct contact with the vehicle ...

Thatís what I was thinking. Just bypass the factory amp and you should still be golden to do what you want.

Side note..I hope you got your Ben HUR at a good price 👍🏾

Itís not hard to take back out to run the rcaís. But I use to install for a large chain before they went out of business.

Im In the same boat. I have to take mines back out to run my rcaís to the back in a few months.

Hello Everyone ...
One vital information about the Ben-Hur system, it only uses one channel right or left from the head unit to send vocals to the stock amp, thats the only down fall. This is the reason to install a second amp to use the head units right & left channels...

Ok Ive taken the right panel off from the right front pillar, to remove the tweeter and match up the colours to the stock amp, looking at the 3 drawings Johnny sent, the wiring dosent match. There has to be another drawing for a 2006 GT. 10 speaker layout.
The wiring on my vehicle, front right tweeter GB / WB, Green & Black / White & Black.
On the both drawings the right front tweeter showing UB / WB, Blue / Black & White / Black.

This means more work, I'll have to trace all the wires individually from each speaker to the stock amp ...
Any thoughts, Johnny / TeamJones ...

Hold up before you go tearing your car apart..sometimes colors can change at connection points. Mr. Johnny and I posted in another thread on audio. But it boils down to get a AA battery and solder a wire onto each end (just a little dap will do ya just fine, enough so itís attached). Make them long enough so you have room to work (3 ft should be fine) Strip the other end enough so that it will make contact with the amp side pins (coating it would be ideal). Go to the FACTORY AMP SPEAKER OUT side and using Johnnyís info, insert the ends into the colors that corresponds with the speakers. Listen for a ďpopĒ sound. Thatís how you test for speakers at the amp. If you want to get technical with it, if you can see the cone of the speaker (or have someone looking) see if the cone moves ďin or outĒ. Out means the wires are on the correct polarity (positive side of the battery to the positive side of the speaker and so forth). This also helps you keep everything in-phase. (Use that only with woofers and mid bass speakers).

Johnny and a few others are by far a legend with these cars and I would trust them over a indie.
Which model do you have? Speed?? Mulliner?? I wonder if whomever had it before you had some custom work done. Some ppl donít do a rear fill on these because no one sits in the back anyway so they just focus on the front staging.

Thanks for getting back TeamJones ...
Yes great info, had that in mind, don't worry I won't do a Johnny and rip it to bits ...
The car is an 06, Mulliner. As far as I can see no work has been done on the audio system since it left the factory, as the old used unit was still in place.

See, I have an 06 Mulliner also and have 12 speakers. Iím starting to think yours had some audio work done to it. I currently have the front suspension tore apart waiting on my axles to come in but when I get time Iíll show you about where the rear tweeters are.

Question, do you have 6x9ís and a 3 inch speaker in your front doors? You can kinda see the outline if you put a light to it.
