I can not find a sure answer i have searched and im not sure which answer i get is right. I have subs and an amp already in the car an they work fine but now the stock sub is blown and rattles. So if I disconnect it will my aftermaket sub still work or will sound stop going to the back because the factory sub is no longer detected? Any help would be appreciated.

If you disconnect the factory sub and you are using that as your audio source for your line level converter then you will have NO signal going to your aftermarket system.

The Bose system detects if the sub is there and if it is sends signal and if not then no signal. My factory sub works fine and I disconnected it when I setup my system and it didnt work unless the factory sub was plugged in.

If you are getting sound to your system by tapping off the wires going to the rear door speakers then you are fine.
