Which wires did you splice into?
Did you T the connections and not completely disconnect the rear channel signal wires from the HK amp?

you're supposed to T into the connections meaning they still make their original connection to the HK amp but also to your LOC.
Also what model LOC are you using? Make sure you set all your LPF and HPF properly.

I personally disconnected and took out the stock HK sub system as it rattled too much with any bass.
