Re: amp hook up to a hu-613???? NO RCA input (Turbos60)

where do you get a line out converter? the cost? where does it hook in at, in the rear of the stereo? is it where that 9 pin slot thing is? oh yeah and the rear speakers? what do you mean? the remote wire? and if so, to the positive wire on either side??? thanx in advance.

I have my subs hooked up with a LineOut Converter. You can pick one up either on Crutchfield.com or BestBuy, or 6thAVE electronic stores. You need to tap off the two rear deck speakers with regular speaker wire and run it to the line out converter. Then hook up the RCAs to the line out converter and everything will work. Since you don't have the HU-803/850 surround sound system, you don't have to worry about locating a 12v power source.

JL makes something called the clean sweep which I think is a step down for adding an aftermarket amp. I'm not sure how it works but supposedly its the best on the market and you don't get any background crap (engine noise, buzzing, or whirring) like you do with other units. My suggestion, is if you don't really know what you're doing take it to an audio shop and let the pro's handle it. Good luck!!!

thanx MUCH. so the remote wire that runs outta the amp isn't used? I thought it was? so should I tape over it? I have installed several systems...but! VOLVO is a different seed to grow.
only had mine a month and LOVE IT! busted my friend's 325i after he said "volvo's are family car SH*T!" at 130 his stopped pulling and i laughed as i pulled away! HAHAHAHA!

There's a remote wire on the LineOut converter run that to the amp. The speakers act as a power on for the amp; but the surround sound systems use an external amp for remote power.
