(Amp to Speakers) vs (Amp to Harness to speakers)
read the faqs here and some car audio sites and I'm ~70% sure about this situation, but want verification. My (planned) setup:
pc (1/8 headphone out + splitters) -> 4 channel amp -> factory speakers. (factory unit is removed; no other head unit)
here's my question: Can the speaker wire from the amp out (14 awg probably) connect to the factory harness + adapter? All the car audio sites talk about wiring to the speakers directly, but why duplicate the wiring effort from the factory setup?
I assume this is possible since the factory h/u was using speaker-level outputs. The only concern I see is whether the wire and the speakers are appropriately rated in the face of a proper amp. However, mine will be a mild setup so I'm not too concerned about blowing something out.
