velocityss1985 is on a distinguished road

The CANbus signal is already converted to speaker level where you made your connector. I am assuming this because the factory alpine amp is up stream from your connection, that is why i was questioning the speaker signal to RCA connection. An easy way to do this is speaker level input on the amp, which is not a very good way to hook an amp up although it would work. The next best thing is to get the LC2i in which I mentioned above and tie the speaker leads into that and it will convert the signal to RCAs and then plug into the amp, plus there are additional adjustments as well as a remote turn on wire, where as cheap line level convertors dont have the adjustments or the amp remote turn on wire.. Just food for thought, good luck!!! I still want to do the backup camera mod you are doing.
