you need speaker line level inputs that attach to your speaker wire and then go to your amp

You can get a line converter for about $20 at Best Buy or Circuit City, or evan Wal-Mart!. Very easy to install, and it will allow you to keep the head unit and add subs, etc.

You might check the Audio Board for more info...lots of people have done it.

I don't see why you would need two converters unless you want to customize the gain into each add-on accessory.. You can probably split the output from the single converter to feed dual amps.
