i have tried to read as many threads as i could lol...but the answers i am looking for werent very clear to me.....how would i go about adding a 2 channel rockford amp to power 2 10"subs?..i wanna keep the stock deck, but just add some bass......i have read about the remote wire hook up, just not quite sure about the inputs for the amp itself.....being RCA jacks on the amp, is there a way to add this to the monsoon system?....thanks for any and all help!:beer:

A word of caution about the line level converters. The monsoon amp attenuates the bass to keep from blowing the speakers. When you have a converter on the 6x9's, it works, but as you turn the volume up, the amp turns the bass DOWN. If you have a remote bass knob, you can probably compensate, but I didn't have a knob, and could never adjust the amp gains to play hard at high volume OR they'd bass me out when it was turned down. Best way around this is to tap the Monsoon amp inputs, as this is pre-EQ. I picked up a Radio Shack RCA speaker cord and cut it in half.

Hope this helps!
Yeah thats what I found When I started looking into adding amp and subs so this is what I used: http://www.reqsound.com/
Made it easy just spliced the rear speaker wires and got it for 80 bucks off amazon.
I thought I read that it was the actual head unit
most people were using a line out converter. you basically splice it into your rear 6x9's and it gives you the rca plugs to go into your amp. no need to get to the headunit. heres a couple you can use

click herefor the wiring diagram for our speakers. I only spliced into one side for my subs. but i used the re-q and it only had one set of "in" wires for the sub. if that makes sense. i splced them right before they go into the rear speakers.
