Running Two Amps off Factory Deck

Hey guys,

I just recently purchased the new 2014 GMC Sierra 1500 Double cab. It has the 8" IntelliLink stereo, and the stock audio system (Not the Bose upgrade). I would like to keep the factory head unit and add 2 amps for the subs and door speakers. I understand you need a line output converter to do this. I would need one with 6 output channels i think... Fronts / Rears / Subs

Has anyone here ever used a line output converter to take the signal to their amp? Whats a good one to buy for my installation? Not sure how the whole thing works to be honest.

Thanks!

Audiocontrol makes some great stuff that will work for you. Take a look at the stuff they have:

OEM Integration

I was looking at those online last night. If there are only front and rear speaker outputs coming from my factory deck, how can I run my subs? Appreciate the input, thanks!

Just split the rear speaker wires to run all six channels.
