    Will just need a line output converter (LOC). That'll convert it from speaker level to RCAs for you to hook up to your sub amp. You might lose your rear speakers though - don't know if it's wise to try and run both off the headunit. In any case, you can then use the fader as a volume control for the sub. Gl.
