whats up guys new to the forum and car audio self install in general. i have a 2014 ram 1500 with a base radio system that has the larger touchscreen head unit which i plan to keep. im upgrading the trucks door speakers with some rockford fosgate 3 way 6x9's and adding a 10" kicker comprt 1 ohm. i got a skar 600-5 channel amp with the 5th (sub) channel being 1 ohm stable. my gameplan with the basic knowledge and research ive made is to take out the head unit and with a T-Tap tap into the factory speaker level wires, and run it down to the amp with a 4 channel line output converter , to supply signal to channels 1-4. run the speaker wire output from the amp for channels 1-4 and run back to the factory speaker wire and t-tapping back into the line inches after the initial tap to run to the amp. i plan to receive the output for the back doors (lets say channel 3-4) and t tap into those and run back into the amp via a 2 channel line output converter for channel 5 and use that to power the subwoofer. my concerns are with the tapping into the lines behind head unit. is the tapping without cutting the wires sufficient or do i have to cut completely run it to amp and then tie the other end of factory wiring with the post amp wires. i would obviously try to avoid completely cutting the wires but if the t-taps wont work i guess i have no option. also will my idea of branching off channels 3-4 to feed the input for the 5th channel work.

i have a 2014 ram 1500 with a base radio system that has the larger touchscreen head unit which i plan to keep.

My Parts:
  • Front Door speakers Rockford Fosgate 3 way 6x9's
  • 10" kicker comprt 1 ohm.
  • Skared 600-5 channel amp with the 5th (sub) channel being 1 ohm stable.

my gameplan with the basic knowledge and research ive made is to take out the head unit and with a T-Tap tap into the factory speaker level wires, and run it down to the amp with a 4 channel line output converter , to supply signal to channels 1-4.

run the speaker wire output from the amp for channels 1-4 and run back to the factory speaker wire and t-tapping back into the line inches after the initial tap to run to the amp.
