That's what the Forscan hack does. It turns the high level outputs from the factory head unit into low level outputs which are the same as RCA's. Simply splice RCA ends onto the speaker wires and hook them into your amp. You can use adapters like
these from Rockford Fosgate these from Rockford Fosgate
and it makes it a lot easier.

There are plenty of threads on here that show the wiring colors for the speaker outputs. I think there is even a sticky on this subforum. 1Chad has an install thread where he shows the wires and the ones you need to hook into.

I think Im fully understanding but just want to be sure! I have replaced all my speakers with infinity kapas And have also installed a kk Audi 10 power wedge which is tapped into rear speakers for inputs. Running the speakers I have installed an alpine Ktp-445u amp. Wondering if I can just flatten the eq and be fine with out adding a dsp? Thanks in advance guys.

I would try it without a DSP. I have always just added a sub and upgraded the door speakers and was very happy with the sound. With a sub you can lower the bass on the HU and it will take strain off the door speakers to reproduce the bass.

For those that have done the flat signal mod, does it flatten out the curve at all volumes? I know that when the volume is turned up, it cuts out the bass and some of the highs, but I’m wondering if flattening the curve will flatten it out thru the entire volume range. The plan is to flatten the signal, hook up an LC7i, and if needed, some filters to filter out any “hiss” I get, then adjust factory eq to desired sound is reached for the highs, and let the sub amp crossover handle the sub frequencies. Any help would be great. This is the first system I’ve built not using an aftermarket deck. So I’m knew to all this LOC stuff. Thanks everyone.
