    You can wire it to your rear speakers if you want to.

    tap off your rear speakers and run it threw a line level converter then to your amp. or if your amp already has one built in, you can connect it directly to your amps high level input.

    you don't have to, get some wire tap connectors and they splice into the wires running to your speakers. you'll need some extra speaker wire to run to your high level input harness on your amps. both my amps have this feature, and as of right now i'm still using the facory HU

    Re: installation without aftermarket HU...

    What are the ohms rating of your subs ? Single fo dual voice coil ? What is the reading on your total output of your amp to your subs ? How do you want to wire your subs (1 ohm, 2 ohm, 4 ohm, etc.)
