About the MTX re-Q
Most factory stereos, even premium systems, protect speakers by reducing bass output when the volume is turned up. That's OK in a stock system, but this limitation will hamper low-frequency performance if you want to upgrade your factory stereo with amplifiers and subwoofers.
The MTX re-Q senses the input level from the factory stereo, adding more bass at high volume levels, while keeping bass response balanced when the volume is low. Now you can keep your factory stereo and its steering wheel controls while truly improving the sound.
The re-Q wires up to the speaker outputs of your factory stereo, and its stereo and subwoofer preamp outputs connect to your amplifiers. You'll find individual gain controls for the right, left, and sub outputs, plus low-pass and subsonic filters for maximizing your sub's performance. A bass enhancement switch lets you kick in a little more bump if you desire.

More details on the MTX re-Q
Overview: The re-Q restores and enhances bass response intentionally removed from a factory stereo system.
Balanced Bass: Rather than just turning up the bass linearly, the re-Q senses the factory radio output and adjusts its boost level to balance the sound.
Smart Engage: An input signal sensing circuit turns the re-Q on automatically. There is also a remote turn-on input if you prefer not to use the Smart Engage feature.
Speaker Level Input: There are speaker level inputs for left, right, and subwoofer channels. The compatible input range is 250 mV to 30 V. If your factory system has no sub, the re-Q's sub output is taken from the left and right inputs.
Line Level Output: The line outputs for left, right, and sub are individually adjustable. The maximum output is 2.5 volts for the full range channels and 8 volts for the sub.
Crossover: The subwoofer crossover is continuously adjustable from 40 Hz to 200 Hz.
Subsonic Filter: The subsonic filter is continuously adjustable from 10 Hz to 40 Hz.
