Can you guys please post all the issues with the PAC AOEM-FRD24? I am close to deciding how to install my Kenwood 4 channel amp (2 channel to the front speakers/ 2 channels to a sub) but there is so much posted all over the internet about using our factory head units and installing an aftermarket amp. I will also be using the PAC LC-1 remote volume control to control my sub. I plan on using the wires going to the front speakers behind the HU. I will just run a separate set back to my amp and make the actual hook-up at the factory wires behind the HU. Here are my exact questions:
1. Please explain issues using the PAC (volume roll off issue)? Will the PAC LC-1 compensate for that?
2. Why am I reading so much about not being able to use the Sync (I know it is wired through the front speakers)? Is that just a wiring issue with the installer? Can it be done correctly? Anyone have an actual wiring digram they used?
I was hoping we could make this an all inclusive thread about this topic since it seems to be brought up every week but not alot of answers are really given. This is just the way I want to go to keep the cost down. Main reason for my install is because I already have the amp and sub and just want alittle low end. I will be making a custom box under the seat for my 12" shallow mount Pioneer sub.
Post up all the info you guys have so the useless searches can end. Thanks for the help.
