I want to put some aftermarket subs in my truck. What do I need to hook the amp to the stock head unit?

dont know for sure if you can, but if you can it should just be remote wire and output cables

I just purchased some subs, a box, wires, and an amp. What do I need to hook the head unit to the amp. I cant find the part.

If your willing to spend 300. on parts to make your stock pos work, why not buy a new cheaper model Pioneer? You will not get near the sound out of the stock as you will the new headunit. I weighed the options of losing my 6 disc for a new Pioneer, and it was well worth it. Next is the stock speakers.

I yanked out the 6 disc in dash changer too, and bought a head unit with Ipod hookup. No need for discs anymore.:thumbsup

As for the OP question, you can either get a new head unit or get a sound processor. Check out www.cruthfield.com they have the sound processors and lots of great technical help to get you what you need.

I also have one more question. I need a wiring kit for two subs that need about 300 rms watts.

The line level adapter will work fine. They can be picked up at walmart for about 30 bucks. You tap into the rear speaker wires and it converts the signal to run through rca cables. The remote turn on will also tap into the rear speaker wires and as soon as the rear speakers receive a signal from the head unit the amp will turn on. Hope this helps.
