    When you are ready to add your sub, just use one of these tapped into your rear speakers to get signal to your amp for the sub:

    This would be by far your easiest solution in my opinion.
    Thank you for the great replies to this thread , this has helped me out immensly in trying to finish up the plans for the audio .. I am going to be looking into getting those pieces you suggested.

    Just to make sure I understand.. what i need to do is :
    use http://www.crutchfield.com/cgi-bin/...asp?I=142C4FDK5
    to hook into the headunit and into the pc.

    then use http://www.crutchfield.com/S-RcN1tc...&i=101PL2&g=721
    to tap into the rear speakers to attach the sub to the factory amps.

    am I correct?

    This for hooking into the head unit if you plan on keeping the factory:

    Just be sure to buy a well-ventilated enclosure. That will help during the hot days.
