Adding an amp and sub

Is it possible to add an amp and sub to a stock sound system?

Yes, you either need an amp with speaker level inputs, or a high level to low level converter. Do you have the Mach 460?

Re: Adding an amp and sub

Its really easy. You basically use the stock speaker wires as the input to the amp. You can buy a kit for this that makes it look really clean.

If you use the factory Mach amps, you'll also have a +12 volt source for the rem as well.

On the passenger side factory Mach amp, disconnect the 3 wire socket (directed away from cabin)

Using the tap and runs(or you can splice them), run speaker wire from the three wires to the amp.

The grey one is the rem wire, the blue/red one is the speaker level positive signal, and the green/black is the negative signal.

Using an RCA cable, strip the rubber off and separate the bare wires from the wire in the center. Twist the bare wires together and connect the wire from the green/black to it. Strip the center wire, then twist and connect it to the wire from the red/blue. Then connect the RCA to the amp

And make sure to insulate all of your copper showing with electricians tape.

^ A trip to Harbor Freight can net you all the little stuff for this super cheap. I prefer the heat-shrink wire insulation over tape.
