    looks to me like that amp can take high level inputs directly. Why would you need a line converter?

    Cause there's a chance the deck does not have RCAs on it. It's cool having an amp and all but if it isn't getting an audio signal all it can do is chill.

    From the high-res image I have seen of that amp, it appears to have standards speaker inputs as well as RCA inputs.

    I may be mistaken though. The angle was funny.

    I see what you are saying, but unless you mean something totally weird that I don't know about you are missing my point. How do you get a signal to the amp? From the deck. If the deck does not have RCAs how is one supposed to connect it to the amp? You have to add RCAs.

    Well I was under the impression from the image I seen that it accepted standard wires.

    For example, you would simply connect the + and - wire directly to the inputs on the amp. Just like stock speakers are hooked up. Instead of going to a speaker, it would go to the amp.

    But again, I may be wrong as I have not seen a decent picture of the amp.

    The amp doesn't matter, it's gonna be the deck. From the deck you have the wiring harness to connect it to power, speakers, etc. Most aftermarket decks have RCA jacks on the back, some have just outies and some have outies as well as innies (for mp3 players and the like). Since stock decks don't have RCA outs on them you splice into (generally) the rear speakers and wire in a line out converter where you plug you amp in.

    Personally if your radio does not have rca outs, i would not use the high level ins on your amp even if you have them, too much noise and thumps. Rather get yourself a line level converter, speakers to rca and tap it in from the rear speakers in your car. These give you cleaner solution then using high level inputs. Find these any where that sells car audio products.

    Find a good audio shop is the best advice given here.

    The next best is to go to an audio forum and read, read, read...............

    And here:

    Are good places to start.

    Good luck.
