Why does it have a speaker input setup if a LOC is needed?

On mine there’s no way to tie into the powered sub unless you plug into it with rca plugs so you need the converter to go from speaker wires to rca plugs.

I see, maybe they have changed something, cause the one on crutchfield says it has speaker input.

How do you like yours. Soundwise is it a worthy investment. I was going to do a full system in this truck, but i am a little to old to bump down the highway, and I just don't drive it enough to justify an espensive system. I would like for it to have some more lows though.

You sound like me. I to wanted to rip all the stock components out but decided to save some cash. I listen to rock so a little more bottom end seems to compliment the stock system fairly well. If you like big thumping bass this won’t do that but I’m happy with this setup. At least for now. As to the wiring there are some pin like ports on the back of mine. Maybe with the right adapter you could hook speaker wires there. I had an old LOC from my last truck and just used that.

Ive had one of these for over 3 years and it still works great. Nice having the adjustable bass cause some songs have more bass than others. Obviously if you have a factory subwoofer you don't need this. When I wired mine I needed a LOC because there was no way to hook speaker wires to the unit without RCA jacks. Maybe they changed that? I highly recommend this amp. Unless you listen to rap then you'll probably want 2 10's and a big amp.

Nice to know after 3 years it still works great and I'm guessing you still like the unit.

Did you wire to the rear speakers from under the dash or from the back? I want to add amp to my stock unit but wondering the best way to tie into the rear speakers.

yeah, I want to know this as well, if I go with and LOC, I will probably integrate it behind the dash and run RCA cables to the amp. If not, I would like to splice in to the wiring harness near the speakers.

I wired right from the back close to the rear speakers,tapped into both the left and right rear speakers. I think I found the color codes for the wires on this site to get the polarity correct.
