No need for amp install kit, just wire taps is all you need. I didnt need the LOC after all.. i'm so disappointed but glad at the same time.. there goes $20...
Yes, I did tap the wires in the picture above, I did notice something really odd though, when I use the fader and I put the fader all the way to the front the basslink is not active but my front speakers are working, only when I move the fader away from the fronts does the basslink kick in.
Paul W @ BSW are you sure these are front R and L not rear R and L? I guess you never did specified as to what LR were

if they were fronts the basslink wouldnt cut out, or did you mean something else

The basslink dosent come with wiring. For power, use 8-gauge and for remote on use 18-20 gauge.

Damn, that sucks. I wanted to tap into front L R pre-amp not speaker outs. Can anyone help me get the right color coded wires?

Feel free to express why rear would be better if you think so.

Thanks,
