you will have to tap in to the speaker wires before the HK amp.. and connect that to the input of your new amp. As for which wires, I haven't really found a definative answer that says 'connect to this wire and this wire'

well, i just put T-Taps in on the Yellow/Black (+) Brown/Orange (-) pair... you can do the Blue/Black(+) Brown/Orange (-) pair also, if you want stereo... however, i dont know which is right or left. There should be a single white wire. That is the remote wire. I just did mine on my lunch. works perfectly.

Here you go.

Peripheral makes a great line-out converter called Vendetta II that is ideal for our systems.

Ok, I need some detail help from someone that has done this before. I am trying to install a new sub amp. So this is what I have done so far:
I cut all the wires that were running into the sub amp and only used the white remote and brown ground wire to hook back to the new amp. Then I ran the new amp battery wire directly to my battery.
Now I have no idea how or where to hook up my line-out convertor. I know everyone says tap into the rear speaker wires and all. But I don't know where those wires are. Ideally I'd be able to use wires that were running into the sub amp, but I don't have a wiring diagram for it.
Can anyone please help this ICE idiot? Thanks!
