The loc converters will turn the regular speaker outputs into line level outputs basically, so that you can feed the amp from the speaker lines that come.from.the original head unit or Amp. In this case, if you are taking the speaker wires that are going to the speakers and attaching loc converters to them and plugging them into the amp line level inputs, then it shouldn't really matter what else is in the system.

Ok but do I tap the loc Behind the head unit or can I do it at the speakers plus do I connect to the front or rear speakers.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
My loc has connection for front and rear and I am only installing a mono amp
Car Electronics Technician: Michael Hannigan, Engineer replied 2 years ago

You can connect it at either end... but if you have an existing amp, then it would be after the amp - so at the speakers is a safe bet. Front or rear really shouldn't matter since the head is stereo - they should be exactly the same. The only reason they sound different is that the speaker size is often smaller in the front.
