    You'll need to find someone who is knowledgeable with car audio installs but basically they'll need to tap into the rear speak outputs and put a high level to RCA converter in, then run 2 x rca's to the rear (or whereever you want the amp), also you'll need a local ground/negative (someone people like to run a seperate negative direct from the battery) plus a fused (near the battery) cable down to the rear as well. Amplifer will connect to these cables you've run.

    Oh and also a switched live to turn the amp on but not sure where this can get gotten from? maybe the cigar lighter i'm thinking. Someone in the car audio business car advise you what size and types of cables you'll need..

    Actually. think someone on here has already done a subwoofer install into the little hatch near the rear lights. i'll see if i can find it..

    And other people swear by using line drivers too. Similar to a Hi-level to RCA converter but allows you to process and clean up the signals coming from the headunit (RCA converters about £5-£15 whereas line drivers can be £60-£300 or more!) depends what type and quality of sound your looking for.

    Ok so it's only possible by taking the rear outputs and convert them.
    Will the rear speakers stil work?
    I've found on the web that there is something called mini din that converts to RCa's, butt I don't have much info about that... and I don't know if I can use that on the DVD90
    I have a lot of pins that are not used on the radio do somebody have the cable plans for this radio?
