    sub options

    I have acquired an infinity perfect 10" in an enclosed box with a sub. I plan to run it with the stock head unit. Someone recommended to me that I get a separate bass control so it doesn't interfere with the stock speakers. Does anyone have any experience with this?

    I have about 10 years of doing car audio, I think I can help.
    If you want to run the stock head unit, you will need a line output converter, to take the rear speaker wires to RCAs, and a amp with low pass crossover.
    You will need to wire the rear speakers into the line output converter, run RCAs to amp. The sub will then be tied into the rear speakers.
    If you swap the head unit you can run the factory speakers from the head and it should RCA outs for the sub amp.
    Either way will work, but the second is the better setup. Just make sure the amp you get to run the sub and a low pass crossover. If not the sub will paly everything, not just the bass.

    + 1 to this statement. ive got about 10 years of car audio experience as well. i very much recommend going the amp route and not trying to power the sub from the radio. you can find a good deal on a small amp and you will be much happier with final result.
