The oem amp typically has a set of twisted wires coming out of it and going directly to the speakers, there isnt anything else in between. Im a little confused, it looks like you hooked an aftermarket amplifier into the factory amps inputs, which would destroy the factory amp in a heartbeat, as the factory amp is designed for a .5 watt (not sure of spec but not very much at all) input and you forced 100 watts (or whatever your amp is) into it. If you tapped into the factory amp for a signal to go INTO your amp, that should be ok unless your amps high level input has issues.
@Mar 3 2005, 09:46 PM It's just like an after market amp sound comes in and the speaker wire going out of the amp goes somewhere?
Its similar to an aftermarket amplifier except it uses speaker for in and out of itself (no RCAs)
A side note, if you have a DVD player, TVs, and I am assuming an aftermarket stereo, I would not worry about the factory amplifier at all, since (if you have any decent headunit at all) it will be cleaner and probably have as much if not more power. I am curious to what kind of car you have this installed into.
