So i have lost out to the need to beef up my stereo. the cute little Panasonic sub box under the passenger seat just isnt cutting it after replacing all my door speakers with better and larger Cadence components. so my question is, has anyone tried to adapt a speaker level input to line level(rca) converter at the plug for the under seat amp. this is a temporary measure while i experiment with rear mounted subwoofer/s but i need to get my amp signal without hacking up the factory harness behind the stereo. and i might keep the six disk factory radio for a while too but who knows. untill then, two huge amps are going under the passenger seat for now so i can play with amping my door speakers and a sub in the rear of my wagon. power and a turn on lead are no problem, i already have large power cable and all the hardware needed for under seat install. i even have a hole weekend free to goof around with it lol. havent had a free weekend in years just to plan out and do a install, cant wait!
second question. the charging system........seems kinda meeh. i know there is a "police/fire/ambo-lance" upgraded altranator and wiring harness for my trailblazer which slams out 245 amps. and it just blots in, same exterior. better guts. hella upgrade from 145. is there anything like this for the wrx? i would even go for a higher amp(maybe not 200ish but a higher quality cleaner powered say, 125-140 amp) from a good aftermarket company that builds a bolt in high perf. altranator. i would also love to know ones to avoid...i am looking to install a drop in unit with no mods EXCEPT if it is externally regulated. i have owned two really great 150 amp alts. for my camaro that had a harness to a external box regulating the voltage and Never had a bit of charging whine or engine noise feeding back into my amps. worth the price at the time lol. and since i am window shopping at the minute on this project price isnt much of a concern eithor. yet, heh.
