    A line level adapter. You'll need to splice it in/sauder (sp?) a line level adapter to your rear spearkers, that will give you the RCA output or whatever you'll need. I think I got one for $30 or something at Quality Auto Sound. Probably way cheaper on Ebay. But that should work to wire in subs and amps.

    PM me if you have questions. Other than a new HU, there's no way to do this unless your amp has a speaker wire input thingy.

    you dont need solder actually, just use side terminals or cut the wire and then... solder and heatwrap (prolly best bet)

    make sure you get shielded wires, although they dont make the audio invincible from getting noise.. it does reduce noise alot!

    also, you many need the pinout for the radio..

    else you wont know which wires to connect
