    If the amp is powering the speakers as well as the sub - Yes. you will still have to use the head unit to turn on the amp, or run a new amp turn on line from a switched source.

    If your amp will power all that, then yes it's just as you said. You can control the volume with the iPod. But, you still need a 12V amp turn on line.

    If you simply want to add an ipod to the factory system, try one of these....

    It plugs into the factory loom behind the fuse box, and provides an Auxiliary input to let you connect external audio devices. Then you can add a 3.5mm headphone to RCA converter and plug directly into the Ipod headphone socket. If you want to be more elaborate you could come out of the dock connector on the bottom of the ipod for un amplified line level output, into the factory system.
