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.
I meant the CANbus signal for the amp turn on.
