Aftermarket subwoofer installation

I was just wondering if anyone knew how to fit an aftermarket subwoofer with RCA cables to the standard headunit. A step by step guide would be appreciated if possible. Much appreciated.

To be honest waste of time as the standard head unit really does lack power, best think to do is change the head unit and go from there.

I've got a sub and amp to my standard head unit and it sounds good in my ears!
You have to get RCA converters which the RCA goes into and then the other end is wires which have to be wired in but I'm not sure where to as I got someone to do mine

hi mate


you need an amp with a line out converter or buy a loc sepereately and u have to tap in to the rear speakers.

That will do the trick...but as first comment...stock head unit is pants so change it as soon as you can

I second rickhonda I wouldn't east my money
Personally I'd save up and swop the head unit first and formost , the sound coming from the original speaker is far superior once swopped out
