Yea, hes wrong. I have had 5 different Sub/Amp set ups in my car ranging from an Infinity Basslink (my favorite) to a 15" Orion P-Series... all of which WORKED!!! Lol!

You dont need to mess with the factory head unit at all, so start putting that back together!

You will need an Auxiliary audio input adapter (look on eBay for one). You will tap those wires inline with your rear speaker to draw a bass frequency. Then run your RCAs to that which will plug into your amp.

Run your power wire (driver side I think). And ground your ground wire somewhere safe. The remote wire you can plug into a fuse that turns off when the car is off and on when the car is on, for example the ignition fuse... (use one thats in your glove box).

I personally had my remote wire on a 2-way on/off switch, so when I wanted the bass I turned it on and when cops were close by I turned it off. GA noise pollution laws are lame...

Hope this helps a little.

No, not like that...

Note, the description says: "Operates on ALL Pioneer Radios with CD changer port commonly known as IP-Bus."

You can go to your local car audio shop, heck maybe even Best Buy and get a universal one. But here is a link to one that will work!

Its actually called a Line Output Converter:
