You said to use the speaker outputs from the factory amp. That would suggest I'm routing through the factory amp first and then through the Eclipse. That doesn't seem right to me. On the factory amp there are a pair of + & - inputs on the small connector. I want to take those and route them to my amp. Then I'll route speaker wires from the Eclipse to the speaker wires on the big factory amp connector, leaving the factory amp unplugged.

I was told those two wires (small connector) were actually low level inputs but everyone talks about using a LOC which would suggest otherwise, yes? But is it these two wires I'm referencing where they get their signal??

Thanks again guys!
You can try that for the low level side- see if it works.

You're right, with a high level input- the signal is passing through two amps. Not ideal, but it's just a subwoofer and without an aftermarket headunit your options are limited to avoid the factory signal processing.
