    what is an LOC? Do u need it?
    Ok, so let me get this straight:

    -Leave the rear factory subs intact.
    -Splice into the rear factory sub wires and the other ends go to the RCA "IN" ports on the aftermarket amp
    My question is, do you lose any volume, sound quality of the factory system? And does this change the ohms on the factory subs by tapping off in parallel like this?

    Re: The Right Way to Wire in an amp for aftermarket subs

    I have a 2000 deville, and I'm sure this would work for it, as i'm only looking to power a 10" kicker sub with an xplode 222 amp. Can you possibly explain in more detail, such as the fuse box and exactly where to put the wire for the remote in the fuse? I would really appreciate this.

    Stay away from Sony Xplode, get a Kenwood KAC5204 amp, it powered my 10" Kicker comp perfectly.

    Vic, do you know what dan is talking about when he says the 'hot side' of the ignition fuse? I know where the fuse box is located (under the rear seat driver side) but I don't quite understand what he means by "hot side" of the fuse?
