OK, I am going to put two 10 inch subs in my trunk and I am going to make the box removable for when I go to the track. My question is, what is the best way to tap into the existing system to get the RCA cables to my amp? I thought there was an adapter you could buy that goes on the factory amps but not sure. Also where is the best place to tap in for the remote wire for the amp?

Seeing as rear speakers are absolutely worthless, I'd pick up a LOC (line out converter), and tap into those. For a remote turn on, I'd just grab the most accessible wire that's hot with the key turned on.

you will need a line out converter and you can tap them into the either the rear speaker wires or into the amp signal wire but it has to be pre-amp

I am lost.What does tapping into the rears do?Can i put some better speakers in their place.
for those that are trying to add aftermarket subs and amps in their vehicel the LOC (line out converter) ties into the rear speakers and takes the frequencies and sends and converts them so that RCA connections can be used for proper signal.

it will:yes but if you want to save a little money the other way will suffice and the part should be cheaper.

not that i am aware of. you have to take 2 things into consideration. One being that most aftermarkets subs will need a decent amount of power in order to be used at its optimum potential, and 2 see that the sub that you will be putting in there will have to be able to run off of "free air" as it technically isn't in an enclosure.
