Default Installation done using gain control....works great wow.

Ok it is official...it worked and it works well. I have followed all the wiring information and I love it. I have to say that is the best way to hook a amp and sub to that system. I am thankfull for the help and I reccomend it to anyone with a gain control and interested in adding a sub. I think what is the best is that it all looks factory and it is not even close. I have a 1000watt Kenwood amp with two 10" subs and it kicks ***.

Good job!

Customizing is great but having the factory look is better.

pics, instructions, and did you hook it up to control the amp'* power? or hook it up to control the amount of music [if you will] to the amp? I really want to do this mod on mine, because when I want to really mess with someone, to turn it down or off, have them look at the subs in the back.. and me turn it all the way up and blast them with some serious bass!

I don't get a whole lot of play with my remote gain controll... like if I really want to turn down the subs to a very low level... well I'm *.O.L. If you really want to turn them down, then I have to go all the way in the back and adjust the gain contoll on the amp itself.

The gain control has an OFF button, doesnt that cut the signal to the subs?

I don't think the Off button made it past 91.
