    Options for keeping stock dash, and adding a sub?

    Hello,

    First time poster here. I'm pretty new to car audio, but would like to install some new speakers in my new car.

    I really like my stock dash, and I've been researching different ways of integrating it into my future system.

    I have looked at DSPS such as the JBL MS-8, Alpine H800, and audison bit ten, among others. These seem to be the way to go for a lot of people, but the price point is a little high for me to buy right away.

    Is there any way I could do this cheaper? I was recommended some audiocontrol products, but to be honest, I have no idea what they do.

    Please let me know what you guys think is the best way to go. This is for a 2013 accord sedan, and I intend on adding a mono amp and sub first, and then upgrading my front speakers.

    Thanks,

    Haha thanks a lot guys. I was just looking at my previous orders, I had ordered this with my previous head unit:
    PAC SOEM-4 Universal 4-channel line output converter at Crutchfield.com
    Will this work as the line out converter?

    Thanks for the help
