I really wouldn't use that sub signal, god knows what kind of EQ it has and what it's crossed at. If you do that you will be stuck with what ever that sub is crossed at. Just run the LOC off the rear speakers, and use the bass boost **** with the amp. If you plan on keeping the stock HU and setting up a quality system look into the JL Cleansweep.

RF 360.1 seems to be a better fit here than the CleanSweep. I think MTX makes a sub module for a stock HU as well.

Yeah I'm not at all familiar with those others, I only know about the cleansweep. I guess I should look into those.

curious, a little random but the JL Cleansweep. Does it work with any stock headunit? say even a 2008 Lexus ES with the navigation and the rear view camera?

It can be used with any stereo system with speaker outputs, so yes ANY car. CLICK HERE for more info on the cleansweep. I would look into the other Aaron mentioned as they may be a bit cheaper and just as good. This is the only one I know about and have absolutely no experience with.

^^ Grammar and punctuation really help people respect what you have to say. From what you are saying your problem only happened with the HU off, right? If so, then I personally think you made a mistake. God knows what kind of EQ they have on the sub line, and if it is crossed too low your stuck with that. Giving up your ability to properly set your sub so it doesn't make noise when the HU is off is not what I would call a good compromise... Until you get rid of the stock HU, everything is just a band aid fix for a bad system.

1. what the ?
2. i call bull **** people that worked at circuit city would never and have never called anyone for anything, thats why they "worked" at circuit city
