So the stock amp needs to be fed with the speaker out of regular radios? Kind of disappointing.
The oem amp needs balanced differential inputs, not speaker level signals. Line level signal won't work either. I replaced my oem amp with a JL 400/4 amp that accepts balanced differential inputs. Worx fine.
