LOC's...

Are they worth anything or should I not even bother?

I'd like to keep the factory HU, but be able to run a 4ch amp...

Lots of people support the idea that you can simply add RCA terminals to your speaker leads and enjoy the higher voltage direct wiring allows.

For what it costs compared to a 'good' LOC, I would try it.

Got more info on how to do this? (would want to make sure I don't screw it up too badly)


Is the NE-774V the sort of thing I'd be looking for?

I use a LOC for my system and it works great...But the one i have is only designed for 2 channel low frequency. For your application, why dont you get a preamp with high-level input? Or what about an amp with high-level input?

Attach positive speaker lead to center pin. Attach negative speaker lead to the outer ring. Twist the cables if you want to get fancy

If the deck has 10wRMS per speaker that is a good 6volts
