Can I use the stock 04 L head unit to hook up a subwoofer? I understand I may need adapters but I don't know what ones. I know you should get an aftermarket head unit but I like to keep things looking stock.

You'll need a amp of course, but all you need is some RCA plugs from your rear speaker wires and plug those into the high level input on your amp. I've been running a home made single 10" sub with a JL Audio 500w for about ten years now.

yea, i was going to use an old amp i have. When i run the line out converter from the rear speakers out spot, then i take those RCAs and plug them to the amp which powers the sub. will i lose power to the rear speakers or do i just splice the line out converter onto the speaker wires?

I feel like that converter is for someone that really wants great sound from their stock system. We would like to get decent sound with little money. Thank you though. But can anyone tell me if when you use a converter on your rear speakers, will the rear speakers still play music or will it be dedicated to the sub?

I started thinking out of the box one day and did away with the head unit all together. No need for head unit these days what with pandora and all the streaming internet stuff. But mostly i listen to my digital recordings off my ipad.

The best bang for my buck was a bazooka tube with a built in amp...connects to factory system and no cutting wires...I did a write up on here or nhtoc.

This is true ^
That's a nice setup
