Default Installing Amp & Sub to Factory Deck

I know this is somewhat possible because a friend of mine has a Cobalt and his works amazing. I want to keep the factory deck because people have been breaking into my cars and a stock deck would not interest them. Basically everything would be hidden.
What exactly do I need / need to do in order to get this to work?

Thanks a lot!!

Thumbs up Re: Installing Amp & Sub to Factory Deck

Do you want to run a full system or just a amp for the subs? Back in the day they use to make this converter that took your speaker wire and converted it to RCA outs. Maybbe call Crutchfield and see what they say.

Heres Crutchfields website . Also keep in mind the stock headunit is going to distort when you crank up on the volume.

I don't know where you can get this filter, but I do know they are around. A lot of amps already have the high-level filter built in, like the JL Audio A1200, that I used when I had my 2001 with the JL Audio Stealth Box. Worked perfect along with the factory head unit.

I have that amp still, and would be willing to sell if someone was interested. Specs: 175RMSx1 @ 4ohm (275 @ 2ohm). I haven't found a good place for a sub in my convertible, so the amp does me no good right now.

Just do a search online for a "line level adapter". That is what you are looking for.
