Aftermarket amp with line converter

  1. I've decided that I like my factory HU with nav and SYNC a little too much to rip it out for an aftermarket, so I've decided to purchase an AudioControl LCQ-1 to run everything to my aftermarket amps\speakers\sub...below is my setup. I currently have a Shaker 500

    Factory Nav system w\Sync
    Audio Control LCQ-1
    Pioneer Premier TS-D1320C 5 1/4 Components for the front
    Pioneer Premier TS-D6802R Coaxial 6x8 for the rear deck
    MB-Quart 12" RWE-304 Sub
    Kenwood Excelon KAC-X542 mono amp
    Kenwood KAC-8452 4-channel amp for speakers

    My question is...I've seen a few posts recommending tapping into the rear speaker to get the signal for the LCQ...but wouldn't that limit the range of what it will output to the amps if I'm only using the output from the rears (i.e surround capability)? Would I just be wasting time by tapping in to all four speakers behind the HU? I know I need to tap in after the factory amp on the Shaker to get the signal for the sub.
