If that is true you would need a line converter or something to create line-out for input to an aftermarket amp

Is this the same for the sub-out or can you have a powered sub in the trunk, do you need to use a y-connector to take it from one RCA subout to 2 (think y-connector is correct but I mean to take the 1-subout RCA to 2 output RCA to be used as input on a power subwoofer)?

The RCA plugs are for an external amp, the "45 X4" speaker outputs are in the wire harness and plug into the factory plug. The sub out may reqire a splitter y cable depending on the amp used.
