  1. Todd, yes you can hook up your an amplifier and subwoofer to your stock stereo. You will need some aftermarket electronics to hook up a subwoofer to your 2005 Nissan Maxima factory stereo. You will need five components:

    1. Car Subwoofer
    2. Car Subwoofer Box to house your car subwoofer.
    3. Car Audio Amplifier that matches your subwoofer power needs and ohm rating.
    4. Car Amplifier Wiring Kit that can handle the power needs of your amplifier.
    5. RCA Line Out Converter to feed an audio signal from your factory radio to your aftermarket amplifier.

    First run all your amplifier power from your car battery to where you plan on mounting your amplifier. Next, run your ground wire from your grounding point to your amplifier. Wire up the RCA Line Out Converter to the rear speaker wires to get a full range audio source. Next, connect one end of your RCA jacks to the Line Out Converter and the other end of the RCA jacks to your amplifier. This will provide an audio signal to your after market amp. Lastly, connect your subwoofer to your after market amplifier using the speaker wire in the amplifier wiring kit. If you’ve never installed car audio before, we advise you to take your car to an experienced mobile audio installer. Hope this helps. Good luck with your 2005 Nissan Maxima amplifier and subwoofer installation.

  2. I want to install an aftermarket amp and subwoofer but want to use my 2005 Nissan Maxima factory head unit. can you help?

  3. Dmariscal, technically you could connect your 2005 Nissan Maxima amplifier turn on wire to the radio switched 12v+ wire. That way your amplifier is on whenever your 2005 Nissan Maxima is on and off whenever your 2005 Nissan Maxima is off. Just make sure to run an in-line fuse holder with a 1-amp fuse on the amplifier turn on wire. Hope this helps. Good luck with your 2005 Nissan Maxima amplifier install.

  4. Im instaling a line out converter in my 05 nissan maxima I whant to know where do I connect the amplifier remote wire? Can I connect it straight to the ignition wire from the ignition harness or to the switched behind the factory head unit? I do not whant to connect it to a fuse as others suggested online I have also noticed on the diagram a amp trigger wire thats green/white can I connect it to that wire?
