2018 Limited with the Sony system.
The sub is very weak so I want to upgrade.
Pioneer TS-SW2002D2 is installed but but still not enough.
So I want to add an external amp to drive the subwoofer.
What would be the best location to pick up the Hi level signal to drive the amp? The Sub outputs on the Sony amp or the rear door speaker output? I am wondering if the sub output is frequency limited to protect the Sony amp / subwoofer and would not sound "full" with the new amp. Maybe the door speaker output is Hi-pass filtered also?

Thanks
Fritz

Are there subwoofer filters/tuning using the factory head unit? That would be the only real benefit to using the sub channel.

If you’re using a quality amp(and quality line out converter) it’d probably have a much better subwoofer crossover.

I used the speaker leads that go to the subwoofer.
