You need some sort of line-out converter I think. Your local stereo shop ought to be able to help you out.

You might need an Line Output Converter but before you run out and buy one, check your amp. Many amps only accept the RCA preouts found on many aftermarket HU's. However, there are some that will also accept the speaker level inputs directly from a Ranger factory HU. If your amp has the speaker level input option, then you don't need the LOC.

so if i have the speaker lvl input i just tap into the speaker wire commin out the back of the factory stereo and run the wires to the amp...
i may just use the line out convertors since i have 1 already from when i redid my friend system. but that was only for the subs, ive never done this with a 4ch

I'm curious how the JL TR 5x7's sound? I already have a factory amp from the Mach stereo in my car.

i really like them! they have a really full sound. the only dislike is when i listen to real heavy metal(older stuff) and theres alot of high pitched guitar playing, symbols, and high pitched vocals, it starts to blend a little bit, but thats at max volume.
they put out enough bass to make ya think theres an 8" or a 10" sub somewhere.
