i know a lil bit about car audio stuff but not a lot..i was wondering is there a way to hook up after market subs and amp...i went to some local car audio places and the way they wanted to i guess put a converter in through the back speaker wires...i really dont wanna do that i found this thing on the web that was a wire harness with rca outs hooked up too it but i dotn remember where i saw it at...i like the radio that is in it i like the fact that i have controls on wheel..i just want a lil more bass in the car...and i am not prepared to spend almost 500$ on some 100 watt speaker from the dealer...is there anyone out there that can help me please....

Hey man,
I know the converter you are talking about and it isnt going to be as good as a line output converter that the car shop was talking about. I would recomend the Audiolink II from crutchfield. This product will use the rear speaker signals and convert them and give you an RCA output which can then be run to your amp. Another way is to buy a high quality amp with a built in "line output converter" and essentially this would do the same thing that the stand alone converter would do. I stress "high quality" because just any old amp with line out converter wont give you a good sound.
Good luck
peace

Boooo to the factory deck, when you can get into a decent aftermarket deck for under 200 bucks with the RCA preouts and everything on it you really can't go wrong and will save yourself a lot of trouble with the converter and noise in the lines.
