    ok so i've searched (probably not as hard as i should've) but im not really coming up with the answers im looking for. im looking to start piecing a system together, im going to keep my factory head unit but go for a modest system from that. probably going to do some 6.5" in front with some new tweeters and im going to probably retro something for my access cab doors. i don't want to build a big sub box but im shooting for a 6 or 8.5" sub. the main question i have is what do i have to use to interface an amp to the factory HU. im going to do a little bit of deadening but not the whole cab. oh i don't have the JBL system either. should i look into a clean sweep as well?

    You can use something like the Cleansweep or you can simply use the high level outputs from the headunit. How you do it is up to you.

    check out my build
    If you want to keep it "modest" search Line out Converter or LOC

    The Cleansweep is legit but a little pricey for me :D

    so if i used a loc would i have to do one for each speaker or just one to say a 4 channel amp? i guess im a little confused on how the left and right signals split up with these things since they bundle 2 channels together

    There are products that will do all you need. One such 4-channel LOC with an amp trigger (to automatically turn amp on/off with the radio) is available through the David Navone website. David, BTW, is an old-school car audio legend.
