do I need the peripheral vendetta II line-level converter if Im planning to wired the amp to the rear speakers instead. I don't have the hk system (no hk sub). What does this line-level converter do? ...Planning to get the 500/1 amp and the cs210-w3 enclosed subs.

How does it sound? Enough bass? I don't have the ski pass. Is that a concern?

basically in order to keep everything factory (Headunit, etc) u use a line-level convertor to get RCA out of speaker wire signals.

there's good enough bass for me.

u'll get enough bass with that setup if u're looking to keep everything the way it is and just want some extra bass.

Can you post the wire colors of where to tap into the pre-amp signal. I have the VenII, but haven't installed it yet.

the JL amps are great! no need for a remote wire either. just use the speaker wire going into ur stock sub and tap it into RCA jacks and plug it into the JL amp and use the speaker level input setting and ur set. the amp turn on is automatic (if you set it). it senses the signl from the RCAs to turn on the amp.
