Yes, it taps in passively.

ic thanks. also what if the factory head unit has built in equalizers that will only give high notes to the speakers as opposed to the low notes a sub needs? wont a sub recieve only those highs as well?

Use splice connectors seen here-

Any filtering of the audio signal at the speaker wires will effect the signal to the LOC since they connect directly to the speaker wires.
But I don't think your factory Honda unit has such filtering, Bose systems do though.
