Some more research led me to the MTX reQ. This device works as a line output converter, but also adds bass as the volume increases, overriding the factory EQ settings.

So, if you had just bought the reQ first, you wouldn't have needed the Scosche LOC?? Sorry if that's a "no-brainer" question, but I know almost NOTHING about car audio.
