Default JL Audio W3, and Fosgate amp... stock deck and door speakers??

I have the JL W3 that is custom fitted to the trunk where the CD changer is, and I have a Fosgate amp. My question is, can I hook all this up without changing the deck and door speakers? I know that it is a different OHM load but is it still possible?

yes you can, you need a Line Output converter for the signal, and you just add this with the rest of the system <img border="0" title="" alt="[Smile]" src="gr_stretch.gif" />

Where did you get the box made?

You might be able to get away without the line out converter. Depending on the age/model of amp you have, The amp might have speaker-level inputs built into the amp. Just tap + and - off both the rear speakers, and connect to the Hi level inputs. If your amp dosent, then you will have to use a RCA to Speaker wire adapter, otherwise known as a Line Output Converter available at your local stereo shop.
