I use to have one also.....very neat little setup!! It'* ok if u don't totally want to crank it like I do!! I had in a jeep for a while.....sounded good when the top was up.....couldn't hear crap when the top was down though. I also had it in my Scirocco and I couldn't believe the sound that was comming from only a "8 sub!!

Yes thats the cool thing about having the high level inputs so you can just tap off the back 6x9'* so you dont have to run as much wire since you do not have to go up to the headunit. The gain slider does work, which was also a cool feature. You could also run your remote to your power antenna (if you have one) and then the only wire you need to run to the front is the power wire.

Its a 00+, the battery is under the backseat. no need to run anything up front.

Would it run better off the battery? Or it'* really not necessary? Plus my deck has sub control, could that be used with something like a Basslink?

amps get connected to the battery.

if your amp has a sub control is probably has RCA outputs for a subwoofer. Yes you should be able to use them

Yeah it has the RCA outputs, the comments about hooking into the rear speakers confused me. Thanks for the info, you seem to know a tonne about car stereos.

here is a fast diagram I did for the rear speakers. its not hard, it just looks that way because I was in a hurry and didn't make it clean looking. follow the wires and you should understand no problem.

Ok, so if I get this right (doubtful) it is talking about powering the rear speakers off the amp on the basslink (or whatever amp I guess), as opposed to the headunit?

What about on cars w/ the factory amplified system? Or is this supposing that the rear speakers have been replaced and the factory amp is no longer a factor?

not quite. The wires I drew to the basslink are inputs. which means that the basslink just uses them as a signal. Much like RCA'* that bring signals to an amp. But instead of being RCAs they are speaker wires.

The rear speakers are still powered by the stock HU/amp. all the bass link is doing is using the signal running along those wires.
