i use a line out converter in mine, it works, but thats all it does, its a dirty signal which leads to dirty sound, but for the time being its what i use and for just driving around with music its been fine so far.

I used an LOC on my GM factory radio and then active crossovers.
just wasn't up to my expectations.
So, when they finally got around to making the interface i needed for my 06, I re did the install with apline 9855.
Still got the $40 4 ch LOC sitting in my garage. The name on it is Install Edge, made by Rockford. Besy Buy sells them.

Find yourself a line level changer controller with inputs for your factory radio. Looks like an FM mod piece but has RCA outputs.

I use an Alpine CHA-S1656 controller and CHA-S604 changer and my factory player for radio duty. Full aftermarket CD sound quality with lower risk of theft cuz the factory radio is still in the dash.
