Sub installation with a Gamma headunit? Empty
PostSubject: Sub installation with a Gamma headunit?   Sub installation with a Gamma headunit? EmptyMon Sep 27 2010, 18:08

I want to install a sub in my car, but want to run it from the standard Gamma headunit.
This is because:
A) I'm tight
B) I'll eventually get another Double-Din (eventually)
C) I like having a standard headunit for once. It matches!

I need to hook up an amp to the back of the standard unit to power the woofer.
Thing is I don't want to compromise the use of the four other speakers as these will eventually be upgraded too.
And I'd like to keep the CD changer port so I can use my in-dash CD changer (this should be OK as changers are inputs).

So I want a sub, but also maintain the integrity of the other speakers and the CD changer.
Ok, so I've been pointed in 2 possible directions:

The line-level-converter
The line-out/pre-amp adaptor

They both do the job, but I know for a fact that the line-level converter will take away the use of two speakers.
It uses the output of two speakers and adapts the connection to RCA's.
And as mentioned, I'd like to keep the use of all 4 speakers.

The line-out/pre-amp adaptor connects to the back of the unit in a seperate block (yellow).
It uses the line-out to send an audio signal out of the unit, much like a spare speaker output.
This sits beside the CD change port (blue) and the telephone port (green).
Currently I have a yellow block in the spare port but with no wires coming from it.

Will the line-out work for what I want it to do?
Or will it take away the use of 2 of the speakers?
Rather than buy one of THESE leads, I can always hook some wires into the yellow block that I currently have (I find the auto-leads stuff way overpriced for a simple bit of wiring) and create one of the line-out to RCA looms myself.

So, does anybody know If I can hook this up and use all 4 speakers + an amp powering a subwoofer?

Cheers for any help!
