    Going on six months with mine. NO issues. Installed as you should, took my time. Fingers crossed I guess. I'm very happy.

    So then, I can just replace the rear speakers in my Premium car with woofer/tweeter pairs, and a passive crossover under the rear shelf? The signal going there is full-range and flat, correct? (I plan to replace the rear speakers before messing with the door speaker set.)

    No.. this is NOT what I am saying.. what I am saying is this is a perfect signal for an aftermarket amp to use.. send this signal to the amp and you will have a great starting point.. if you were to try and power speakers with this you would be sadly disappointed

    Right, well unfortunately we are discussing two separate issues, and getting them crossed up.

    First, yes, I get that IF I want line-level, then your point is that I am fortunate to have the Premium car, and the best place to tap it is before the outboard amp.

    But second, IF I want to replace the rear deck speakers and use the high-level signal from this outboard amp, then my question to you is about confirming that this high-level signal is full-range and flat.

    Note that only after replacing the crap speakers back there, will I reevaluate the need for a trunk subwoofer. (I am a "40Hz is good enough for me guy".)

    Sorry to gravedig, I am interested in hooking my subwoofer amp up to the amp input like these guys was talking about. I am not positive which inputs OEMradio was referring too, on the little chart, can someone clarify which number/spots would be where I want to connect positive sub and negative sub to? Be awesome for some clarification if this is indeed better than a lc2i

    I have a 17 premium, 9 speaker. so I should be able to use this chart they was referring too from what I understand.
