    Stock head unit

    I'm trying to use my stock hu and ran two amps one for highs and mids and the other for lows so I would like to ask anyone out there with some experience on using them if they would recommend the jl sweep or something else that I don't know about ? Please help

    You can either use a Line Out Converter with 2 or more sets of rcas or get another HU which would be the much better option. If you dont have premium sound like for ex: Shaker 500 on mustang then it would be a much better option to upgrade HU

    I really would like to just get a new hu but it seems like everything goes through the factory unit and I don't really want to lose anything in it

    Re: Stock head unit

    what goes through your factory system that you think you will loose? My wife has an amped factory Bose(should be Boss) system in her '03 G35. There is no sound or build quality left in the Bose name. You can spend a lot of money on gadgets to try to make your system sound better but you will never have as good of sound as an aftermarket unit. If you feel you need to keep your factory HU then just use a LOC that has the outputs you need and save yourself a lot of money. A lot of 4 channel amps will have sub amp outputs so all you really need is a 4 channel LOC or a couple of 2 channels. Put your money in your speakers they are about 80% of your system.

    LOC(line out converter) is a device that converts your high level or HU amplified speaker wires to low level rca connections for an amplifier. A lot of amps don't need these anymore. High level inputs are getting more common every day so depending on the amp you may not even need then. Looks like you may be screwed on the HU choice. Pick some decent amps and speakers you will be satisfied. If you think you need better EQ adjustment I wouldn't spend much, the per dollar benefit would be better added to the speakers.
