If you're planning to connect an amp that doesn't have speaker-level inputs to a car stereo that doesn't have preamp outputs, you'll need a line output converter. The PowerLink II hooks to the speaker leads of your stereo and provides RCA preamp-level outputs, so you can run a patch cord (not included) to your stereo amp.

If you're installing a 4-channel amp, you'll need two converters and two patch cords. PowerLink II has adjustable gain, and is compatible with receivers rated up to 30 watts RMS per channel.

This works perfectly and its the only way to hook up a amp without speaker inputs to a stock receiver.
