Question Factory headunit to aftermarket amplifer

Im sure this question has been asked before, but I can seem to find it. Ive been looking all over the internet for the answer. I think Ive found it but not sure. I have the S model, and I have the SL radio (6 disc premium) on the way from ebay. I like the factory 6 disc. I need to connect an aftermarket infinity 5 channel amp to it. I am also connecting 4 6.5 infinity reference speakers, and a cheap kicker sub. Im having an issue on how to connect this to the factory radio. I have gotten as far as thinking I need one of this..... Maxxsonics MX-1Premium High-to-Low Level Converter for OEM Integration. Im not to sure what all I need. If anyone knows what i need (like harness, converters, wires, etc) to make this work, please let me know. Im gonna put the headunit in myself, and probally pay a professional to do the rest. Since the car is new, I dont wanna mess anything up. Plus im not farmilar with this stuff, but most of you could figure that one out, lol. Im not going all out with this. I just like the infinity speakers, and need a little boom, and just want something nice that sounds good. Dont need to be booming down the street and shaking windows!! lol Thanks alot

VersaMG08 They break down their new members and mold them into other NICO clones, it's an endless cycle. If you don't obey, either blend in or get recycled.

dudeee i literally just did this this past weekend took a rockford amp/ 2 rockford 10inch punches and put them to my stock headunit its possible and very easy.
you just need whats called a line out converter.
they have them at walmart for like $20 and best buy for like $30
all it is is a bunch of wires (i believe 4-6 wires i only used 4 of em) and they go into a box and on the other side is the female jacks for the RCA cables..

Dude I did it with my old car and it's a b*tch just had the shop the stuff and say doit using a oem radio is a pain I highly suggest getting a aftermarket on less wires to splice and such.

follow slclayton and if you need instructions how to remove panels let us know its easy :P removing just one panel in your car will go a long way because any future modifications might require removal of the panels and seats and carpets :P so my suggestion it installing it your self :P just make sure you disconnect the battery first. you will feel a lot better after installing a system your self and save some dollars for the labor :P and best part is that you have learned some things about your V :P

Im running a Kenwood mono amp to the 12" sub in my trunk. Works like a champ! All the wiring is the 8 gauge Rockford Fosgate crap
