I've never installed a sub myself, but i've been reading up on how to/what to buy etc.. I'm interested in hooking up an amp and a fat sub to the original head unit on my mk5 5door astra. I'm not going to replace the h/u, because I prefer it and i'm not gonna rewire all of the speakers!
I've decided to add a sub by connecting the rear two speaker connections into a line Output Converter which converts them to RCA cables (into ze amp). My question is, there any way to keep the H/U powering the standard speakers, and having an amp just power a subwoofer?
Any other alternatives.. such as splicing the Line Output Converter into the rear speaker cables, and leaving them connected to the speakers? Could this be possible if I got a converter that could also boost the signal to the amp?
Any replies appreciated!
