Connecting an amplifier to the built-in front loader

I have a 2008 Ford Fiesta 1.6 TDCi and would like to install an amplifier with some more speakers. The problem being that there is no AUX out on the in-built front loader (or is there?) to connect the amplifier. I fiqured I could use the feed from the back door speakers to the amplifier, connecting a filter inbetween. What is the best filter to use and the confiqurement to reduce noise (as I presume there would be)? Can I interlink the filter input and the back speakers (connected in parralel) or would it affect the resistence for the output of the radio? Hoping you could help, Kevin

    Thanks for the quick responce!

    Does "tapped" mean that the rear speakers is connected on the same line as the input of the converter? Would'nt this reduce volume those speakers?

    Thanking you in advance,

You simply need a line level convertor.
It is tapped into the rear speaker(s) wire and converts the signal into a low-level RCA output your amplifier can use.
A good one will have a noise supression circuit built in.

    PAC is the best around

    But they are pricier than the cheapo brands.

    The radio will not sense the convertor - and sound will not be affected.

    Adding new speakers will only affect the resistance load on the ADDED amplifier.

I have a Ford Fiesta 2007 1.4 TDCI. When I brake

Check the wiring harness. Sounds like it has come in contact with the break assembly and is shorting out. Look for exposed wiring where the cover has worn off coming in contact with the break. Tape all exposed wiring and be glad you haven't had a small fire.
