    I have a Sound Ordnance B-8PT powered sub that I would like to add to my truck. Does anyone know if the stock 7" Entune (non-JBL) head unit has low level (RCA) outputs that I could connect to?

    Faux pro grille, plastidip wheels.
    No it doesn't youll have to tap into the rear speakers and run low level outputs from those. I think alot of guys run a line out converter.

    I'm running an underseat 8" powered Sub, that I tapped into the rear speakers at the back of the HUD.

    Rounds out the "Budget Kicker Speaker Upgrade" just fine. For the price it fills in the lows properly but you won't be shaking the car next to you at stop lights.

    It literally just fits under the drivers seat, (where you wanna feel it). It might or might not fit under the passenger seat. BOSS (BASS600)

    No pics currently.

    I used the Amazon harness and put a powered sub behind the

    I have the same setup in mine. I also did the kicker upgrade on all the speakers. It sounds pretty good, much better than stock for not a ton of money.

    I think it's more than enough it's pretty loud. For the money, can't beat it. This plus the kicker/tweeter upgrade is the best way.

    I just got and installed that harness from Amazon. Waiting on my kicker cxa600.1 amp and kicker compVT (43cvt102) 10 inch sub. Both should be delivered today. I bought the pioneer sw250t 10 inch enclosure (which fits perfect behind passenger back seat) which should be delivered tomorrow. But the damn 4 gauge kit won’t be here till Friday. So I got my Saturday all booked up to put it all in.

    Another question: Which HU wire did you connect the remote turn-on wire to (switched 12-volt source)? I have a long blue wire connecting from the amp terminal marked REM that goes to ....

    Blue REM wire is the remote 12v. Use that for a switched signal to the amp
