Getting an amp this weekend, should I...

Since it's going to be hooked up to my stock OEM AM/FM radio in my '00 Civic DX, should I hook it up through a high to low converter to give it RCA cable compatability, or should I just hook it up through it's integrated high level speaker inputs? It's going to by solely for powering my "10 Pioneer IMPP sub I have, and the amp is 2channel, so it's going to be bridged for full power to the sub, so I'm not going to be running any other speakers with it. Thanks for any opinions.

personally I would just go through the high inputs, it might sound a little better if you went low, but I'd just go high.

Cool, thanks. Plus from what the guys where I'm getting the amp from were saying, the sounds difference would be neglegible to differentiate anyways. And going high rather than low will be cheaper as well.

high would be the best way to go and as you stated the process is a little cheaper that way.

good luck w/ the upgrade.. :frog:

Thanks man. Yeah, I call it my "work in progress..."

The Viper is the shiznit, but I wish it was a Honda. But it's cool though, it even has a working alarm on it!
