Technics harness then an Audiocontrol LC2i Line output converter to bring the levels down to regular Line level RCA

basically the harness fits between the OEM connecter that used to go into the amp
then the other end of the harness fits into the amp
so instead of:
oem plug---amp
you have
oem plug---technics harness---amp
and from technics harness you have a connecter that has a tap from the wires that go to the underseat subs
those go into the LC2i which brings them down from 150w each
down to a managable level that an aftermarket amp can handle

it's pretty easy
and you can buy both from technics, so the wiring is already done
PM him for more details

best thing is
no need to cut or modify any wires
