Wiring diagram for HK subs

Does anyone have the link to wiring your speakers up again.
I recall someone had a diagram of it. I tried a search but i can't seem to get the key words to spit ou the diagram.

Can someone repost?
I'm trying to wire an amp up to the kicker 6x9 I have replaced the factory HK subs with.

It looks like I'll need a line level converter but I'm wondering what else.
Any tips?

Line Out Converter?

Does the Line out converter have to be a VEN4?

Any idea what crossover points the signal coming out from the HK sub amp are set at?

Also since I have a wagon (i.e. 10speaker HK set up), I think there is only one amp

I'm thinking of leaving base system in tact and added a "real" sub. If I want to grab a full freq. signal where is the easiest place to tap into the system?

Is there anyway to make a HK sub amp and main amp work w/an aftermarket deck?

What subs are you going to run? I have JL 8-IB4's running off the factory sub amp. Not too bad. I found that the polarity seems to be reversed (swap + and -). If you still want to replace that amp, go with something that accepts differential or balanced inputs. Soundstream , a/d/s come to mind. Then you can skip the whole line level converter. Here is a good page on the HK systems:
