You can do this, you just need a line out converter. Like shown here. This would connect to your rear speaker lines and allow you to lower the level to that which would go into the amplifier. In a regular sedan type car you wouldn't need very much speaker wire but you'll also need an RCA cable to connect the line out converter to the amplifier.

You can also look for an amplifier that has a high level input and do the same thing.

Hope this helps.

I have an 04 Nissan Altima I want to keep the stock radio but want to hook up an amp to it. There are no RCA hook up on the back of the radio. Please help, how can I do this?


You need a high/low converter. The converter will connect to two speaker wires and, covert that high signal to a low signal to run the amp. The converter will have RCA outputs for the amp. You will also need an amp turn on wire. The accessory wire (switched 12 volts) from the radio will serve this purpose.
Since you are already behind the radio; the accessory wire you need is purple in color. Left front speaker (+) is blue/white,(-) is blue/red. Right front speaker (+) is white/black, (-) is blue/black. You can use the signal from these two wires for the amp.

each speaker in your car runs the wiring thru an amp. So each spkear has its own amp for the bose system. You can not hook up a none bose radio If you do you will need to run new wires and replace all the speakers. Sorry.

You will need a line level converter for starters (takes speaker level signal and converts it to line level/RCA signal) you connect this to the speaker left/right wires and it has a RCA left right on other end to connect and run to your amps, (you need this box because factory radios don't have RCA outputs on them) At that point all you have to do next is run the power/gnd/rem for your amp and then speaker wires to your front/rear speaker and then sub (if using). You can use one of these converters for your front/back speakers so you will still have use of your front/back/left/right fading options. make sure you disconnect th factory plug/harness at each speaker since the amp will be powering them and you will run speaker wires to each speaker. If you only want one converter it will be on your front channel and your sub will be power by the front. (you will fade to front for more/less sub bass unless your amp has a separate volume/bass control). If you want your sub to fade with rear speakers you will need to install another converter off of the rear speakers. Found a site with some photos that may help you with your project.

Installing radio in 85 mercedes-benz


there is no amplifier. you just need to find the memory wire that is hot all the time and the 2 wires that are hot with the key on. One is for radio operation and the other is for antenna operation. The speaker power is supplied through the fader switch in the center console and the switch is powered by the head unit. Just hook up your circuit 30 and your 2 circuit 15 with a ground and run you speaker wires to the head unit or if you are installing an amp from the wires from the fader switch. That switch can be popped out with a flat blade screw driver, Hopefully i have been helpful
