    Installing sub and amp combo....
    I have a 6 disc indash that I want to keep. I am trying to add a Output converter and install an amp and sub combo. I have read that I have to wire the converter directly to the speaker side of the BOSE amp. Is this the only way?

    A shop mentioned I could run it off a left door speaker.

    I need to know where to locate the bose factory amp. I want the bose to remain intact, with the added knock of the sub....

    Do I need any special interface seeing that I'm leaving the Bose and adding to it?
    Thanks...

    Easy..


    Use a high/low level converter with a remote on, and run it from any speaker, preferrable one of your rears...

    Then run your RCA's from that to the amp

    Pretty simple, and if you buy the model with the remote on, you dont need to run a 12V line to the back off the accessory!

    How can I tell if its remote powered? I didnt even know such a thing existed.

    What about a C2A-GM24? I guess its a plug that has the LOC prewired before the amp.

    Also, I am running a Soundstream Rubicon 1002 to 1 S15L7 Kicker which has dual 4 ohm voice coils. I have the speaker wired to 2 ohms. Will this maximize the output of the amp?

    Its supposed to be 1000 x 1 RMS @ 4 ohm AND 2 ohms.

    Whats the difference?

    I'm told the rear speakers are a x-over signal, so I will have to go to the OEM sub in the console. I am fucking confused.
    I just copped a Scosche FAI-3A. You mentioned using one speaker, but the amp inputs are left and right, just like the output converter.

    If I'm using one left rear speaker, where does the right come in?

    Do I only use the left input on the amp?


    I checked and the factory full range sounds comes from the front doors only. I guess I'll hire someone.
