Marvin's Sub Install
The Monsoon system is probably one of the best stock/option stereo systems I've heard, it just needed a little extra punch! After a decent amount of research I designed a box that wouldn't take up too much space in the trunk and found the right additional pieces to make the sub perform the way I needed it to.
Sub - Kicker L7 10" Amplifier - JBL 600.1 Sub Volume controller - N-22V Line to RCA - PAC-SNI15
This is the configuration I decided to use:
View from below - you can see the angled mounting instead of being mounted flat.

Look at this mess of wires!
What you are looking at is a knob that I got to allow me to turn down the input of the signal to the amplifier - which means that it is a remote volume control for the amplifier - so to speak.
I have mounted it in the blank space where the traction control would be...not too much use for that in Texas!
The device is an N-22V and I got it from Navone Engineering - see links below.
Okay, this is a blurry shot of a PAC - SNI15 Line to RCA Converter - this gives me two RCA outputs that are clipped into the rear speaker line outs of the head units.
Not pictured is the Blaupunkt F00E500014 - on non-monsoon head units it is reported to give you the RCA outs - but with the Monsoon unit it only gives you a functional remote-on wire. I decided to go ahead and use it instead of sending it back - it was only $7.50 - works real good for the remote on.
