    (UPDATE) help with 460 & subs (UPDATE post#23)

    See post #23

    Is it possible to take the rear wires that lead into the rear amps of a 460 system and feed them to an after market amp to drive two 10" subs?

    Or can I tap into the pre-amped signal and feed it to another aftermarket powered amp that is capable of driving two 10"s?

    Is this even recommened if it can be done :shrug: or is it just a stupid idea :rolleyes:

    I am afraid I've not tapped the 460 on my '04. I gutted the one that was in my '95 Cobra and ran output from the head unit. I cannot help you on this one. :(

    Thanks for looking 4U2NV. Hopefully someone will know. I just don't want to go splice crazy trying to find the correct signal wires.

    OK let me get this straight, you want to run a set of subs

    w/ no power wire to your BATT?

    You can do this with a line converter but you will need to run a pos and neg wire.

    i really really hope thats what your asking

    I plan on powering the amp from the batt., I just want to know where I can tap for a pre-amped speaker signal so I don't have to run wires to the back of the head unit.

    A picture is worth...

    I thought this might help to show what I'm trying to accomplish. Without loosing signal to any other speakers. By the way, the amp and subs were free. :)

    the wires you need to hook up to are before the amp that lead to the head unit, it can be a pain Iv done it before

    you will not loose the sound from the rear speakers, you are just tapping into them for the source(input) signal for the amplifier.
