Default Powered sub again

Read the thread from 00accordLX 5spd. Same scenario but I have a Bass Link from another car. I didn't see how or where to plug in the RCA cables. I thought they had to get hooked up to pre-amp outlet. Any enlightenment would be appreciated.

A. I have no clue what Jon (00accordLX5spd) wrote, so a link to the thread would be great!

B. If you have the Honda factory radio, it doesn't have pre-outs on it. You will either need to get line level converters (any nerd at an electronics store knows exactly what it is) or a new headunit. My vote goes to the latter, which will give you better sound out of the same speakers.

If this powered sub has high level inputs you won't even need a line out converter, if high quality sound is not your priority you can get away with the stock HU. With high level inputs you can hook up a speaker signal to the amp. If not your going to need a LOC or a new HU.

That thread started out exactly what I wanted to ask. Add sub to 6cd stockHU. Then it really got long and out of hand. You guys answered my question. The Bass Link came out of sweet Fiero I bought from a spiteful divorced woman for cheap and it was screwed to the passenger floor! No HU and no instructions. A friend did what you said in his Element with a converter, amp, and 2 wally world speaker boxesand is not happy with it. Thanks for your input I'll go another route
