    -->Line out converters<--

    my friend is wanting to keep his stock HU in his 04 chevy crew cab. He wants to put a line out converter to power a kx600.1 for 2 10" w3's and a lunar 40x2 to power his mids and highs.
    The guy at the local audio shop said that he doesn recommend hooking up the mids n high amp to a line out converter bc of high freq. or some bs. This guy has done setups like this before and said that the mids n highs get louder but they dont sound clear.

    Is there anything he can do to get the mids n highs to sound clear without buying a aftermarket HU? Would low/high pass filters do anything?




    2000 GMC Z-71 Ext.Cab

    SET-UP:

    HU: pioneer deh-7700mp
    front: stock (but decent)
    rear: Stock
    sub: Orion P-Series 12"
    sub amp: orion 600d
    box: ProBox Downfire
    Need $$$ for Upgrades

    Well, you should use a highpass filter on the interior speakers regardless.


    But, anyways....your friend will be fine. Check out http://www.davidnavone.com/ for high quality LOC's.....

    Use good LOCs and it will sound good. I just replaced a stock HU / LOC setup with an Alpine HU, it sounds better now, but not much.

    The cleansweep is A LOT more than just a simple LOC.
