I originally installed a Kenwood ddx672bh in my '13 Silverado using PAC rp5-gm31. SWC and Factory bluetooth worked properly.
I just installed a 5ch amp with aftermarket speakers. Ran new speaker wire to them.
Question is.... is there a way to use the factory bluetooth. The mic works, but there is no speaker output since the factory speaker wire is no longer in use.
Only option I can think of is to ditch the factory bluetooth and just use the built in bluetooth in the kenwood. If I go this route can I still use the factory mic or do I need to use the kenwood aftermarket mic?

I have no experience with the PAC piece, but for simplicity, I would recommend just using the mic that came with the Kenwood, as it is meant for it. You may be able to mount it in the factory location (that's what I did in my old Saab).
Originally I wanted to try and use the factory mic, but it wasn't compatible, and the impedance was completely different.
My ex once told me I have a perfect face for radio.
