I'm looking to add a sub and keep everything else stock. I have an old sub and amp in my garage I'm thinking about throwing in just for a little extra thump. I read through a very long thread over on the OS My version of an amp install where there was some going back and forth as to whether or not you could just solder some RCA's to the low-level inputs going into the factory Bose amp or you had to install a LOC. One person said they soldered wires and was successful and very happy, another saying they had some noise. Some people even said they hooked up an LOC to the low-levels and had success. I have the wiring diagram that was provided by MAY03LT- Wiring Diagram. My ultimate question is can I just solder RCA's to these and be good to go, or do I really have to buy an LOC? Does anyone have any personal experience trying this? Secondly, this is a 600w peak amp, so that would be too much to connect to the fuse panel under the rear seat correct? I need to run power from the battery? I used to do this stuff many years ago...lol...it's been awhile. Thanks, I'll look forward to your input.
