Default Use the High Inputs on my new amp or buy seperate LOC's?

I just bought a 4 channel amp to power my Polk Audio speakers. I noticed my amp has high inputs for all four channels. Is there any reason to spend $60 for a couple of PAC LOC's or do the ones on my amp work just as well?

Looking at your sig, I'm assuming that the Mygig nav is from your truck? If you have the premium system, its' going to be difficult to use high level inputs to your amp without some sort of summing device because no speaker on that truck gets a full range signal. (at least on the quad cabs...rear doors are close but I believe they are high passed from the sub frequencies).

The pac harness that goes behind your head unit (CHY23?) is probably your best bet.

I just installed the CHY23 in my 2011 crew cab. It worked great, plug and play, no wiring or cutting. Summs everything together to get a full range 20-20,000hz signal for 2 preamp outputs. I'm only running the rears into a subwoofer right now but so far no noise at all. I'm very pleased with it so far.

My CHY23 I just installed is full of noise. When using the front RCA's on the PAC I get the most noise, when using the rear outputs from the PAC it's still there but not as bad.
