The radio in it nice but it has NO outputs for conencting another amp for a sub, there are 2 additional audio inputs and 1 addition video input, why who knows. Now I am going to have to use a POS high to low converter for a sub amp. :mad:

where did you find the video input ??? is it under the seat or behind the dash???? Also are you counting the Ipod and Stereo mini inputs near the handbrake or is there a way to disconnect them from behind the dash ??
thanks for your help

If you pull the head unit out you will see an additional yellow (video) input and red (right) and white (left) input. I just found the damn dvd crap under the passenger seat the other day.

Well what am I looking for exactly lol. Just a converter for an alpine head unit? I just want the exact name of what I am looking for. And how hard on a scale from 1-10 was it to install?

of my understand right now it goes

head unit > converter > wires from amp
