Ya it’s got speaker input 2 channel then rca out put to amp
Car Electronics Technician: Pete, Mechanic replied 7 months ago

O.k., the problem is that the speaker wiring is already amplified.If the audio control LOC can handle amplified input then you can use these inputs.If it cannot you would need to see a stereo install facility to see if they have or can get an adapter to reduce the amplified feed into the LOC.Usually, there is an adapter that can be purchased that may be used to do this.An audio install facility would know what will work to make this work properly.You don't want to damage the factory amp or radio or the LOC so the only way to be sure is to see if the LOC can handle an amplified input to see if an adapter is needed.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service, your 5-star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
