    Icon32 Instaling amp off speaker level inputs?

    If I run the amp off the rear speaker wires, I still use those same wires to run the rear spaekers? I just run a splice and now the rear wires send a signal to both the amp and rear speakers? Will this burn up the head unit sooner than normal? I wanna run a sub with the amp I'm speaking of.

    No, if you run an amp off of the headunit power you cannot also run it to the speakers. well you could and I have seen it done but it would prolly fry the HU sooner or later and sound like garbage from the get go.

    Get a new HU (with sub out) and then worry about a sub amp.

Consider yourself lucky you can't say anything without writing 20 lines of bull[bleep], and be proud that you are now vaunted to the halls of fame with TEAM HAMMER and bdawson72.

    Thanks for the info. I've never used the high level inputs before only the rca's. I was hoping to use the factory head unit. I don't need a competion type system, but have had my car busted into for my stereo. Was thinking if I used a lame factory unit nobody would mess with my stuff. I've even gone the cheap aftermarket radio and had that stolen before?
