Adding Amp/Subs HELP!

Hey you all! Haven't been on here in a while but need some help now.

I am trying to finish my install of amp and subs. Only thing I need to do now is plug the output cords into the headunit. But with this creates a problem. There is no spot for the cords to plug into on the stock headunit. Is there anything that I can buy to adapt it to work or no?

The amp I am using is just a plain simple Insignia NS-A1200 (Will be updating it at a later time with a better one) Car is 2006 LS 2-door.

Thank you for all your help!

There is a way, I just don't have any experience with it. we used to have a how-to before the forum crash..

Free bump and i'll search around.

you have to go to your local audio shop, and purchase a little box that converts the high frequency that the rear speakers get, to low frequency the amp uses, they arent that expensive, and all you do is splive it into the rear speakers, and you can plug your amp into it(For use with the factory head unit!)

Do you know the name of it? And will it plug into the RCA Cables?

It's called a line out converter. You will have to connect the wires to your rear speakers and then plug in the rca's. Then your amp will work with your stock H/U

Thank you!
Also, is the sound quality good with it or is it distorted?
