In Reply to: Will RCA outs work with Prem. Snd Amplifier? -more posted by JeffM3 on May 17, 2001 at 22:19:21:

I am installing a new head unit and, for now, I'm keeping the rest of the stock setup. My head unit has two sets of RCA preouts. What type of line out does the stock head unit have? Will I need to modify the setup?

Thanks in advance,


deck is not compatible with the factory amp. You'll need to use the speaker level outputs. It's also helpful to use a deck with a wide range of volume adjustment, since it's feeding into an amp. A Kenwood deck that has vol adjustments from 1-35 causes more of a jump in volume for each increment than a Nak deck with vol range from 1-70. Whe you're feeding a high level signal into a factory amp, the amp tends to be more sensative to the input signal. Jay
