The value of speaker-level inputs Factory radios do not have dedicated outputs for amplifiers preamp outputs. One exception I can think of is that some amps have a type of 'line out' where they directly support daisy chaining to additional amplifiers. If you have a sub with an external crossover, the situation may be different. The audio signal coming out of this connection from the radio is just enough power to supply an audio amplifier for amplification. Editorial Note on two channel bass: The proper way to level match your sub is to use the internal pink noise generator of your processor aka.

Driving front seat speakers will require you to run wiring under a door jamb or the floor carpeting to reach the speakers. I am planning on installing an amplifier in my 2008 Mustang and hoping to keep the factory head unit for now. There doesn't seem to be high-level inputs for the subwoofer channel. In essence, nothing more than voltage signal coming from the preamp, fed to the woofer's amplifier.
Of course, how well that will work depends on what frequencies are filtered out of the line level output, and the capabilities of the main speakers.

It may allow the mains to play louder as they are not having to move as much air, but the downside is you can lose some clarity. They're called high-level inputs because the voltage level is significantly higher than with a standard preamp output connection. They have a high-level input sometimes called speaker-level input that hooks up to the speaker taps of your amp. The speaker level input doesn't power the sub, just supplies a signal to the sub-amp. This made my powered sub's controls the determining factor. We hope this basic guide helps you in achieving sonic nirvana both heard and felt. If your amp if of higher quality, it may be able to run in three-way mode, in which you power the 8 ohm stock speakers with each channel of the amp, and then bridge the two channels onto a four ohms sub woofer for a third channel.
If you run the amp off of the speaker level inputs, you will need the amp to recieve all of the available signal for the input. I would highly recommend using line level option so you have greater control over bass management and can use the receiver to dial in the spl and xover of both the sub and mains to obtain better integration. The best solution to both problems is to set up the sub with measurements. Requests made without using this feature will be ignored. You can then play with the sub high pass filter to blend subwoofer and speakers correctly. Where does the subwoofer channel get its signal from? I'm goin to be addin a sub and amp to my oem jbl system.
A 2-channel amp will power two speakers or a subwoofer ; a 4 channel-amp provides a few more wiring options. Then the controls would have been mostly through the receiver.

You now have a total distortion rate of 3% t. It only has 2 high-level speaker outputs. I google'd for a quick sanity check and I'll post a snippet from WikiAnswers: I wouldn't.

I'm putting a sub in the trunk of my son's 1991 Toyota Camry, the rear deck speakers are right there. Most subwoofers are designed to handle this situation.
