Thanks a ton.

Alright guys.. so I picked this up from bestbuy for $20, the guy said its what they use in all their installs and is super easy to put in.
Now my question is, do I still need a remote wire or is this kind of include the remote wire function? I just want to get this right, these are the things I need to do to add the amp and sub correct?
- run power from my battery to my amp
- splice in the line converter in EITHER one of my rear speakers? ( or where did you guys find a good spot to find the wires?)
- run rca's from the converter to my amp
- run speaker wire from my amp to my sub
- run a ground from my amp to more then likely the back seat mounting bracket?
**- run a remote from the amp to....?**
Thanks for all the help guys I wasn't so cautious with my 92 sonoma and just slapped it in.. but I really don't want to own a wiring nightmare for the next large portion of my life.

That thing from BestBuy is a line convertor only. It doesn't seem to have a remote wire in that pic. I presume you would splice into both the right and left (as it apparently has stereo output, and 4 wires coming in). You will have to run a separate remote wire, yes. To install with that, you are going to have to cut wires and splice into the harness.
You can keep the OnStar/Chimes with the unit I have, yes. And you will with that I presume as well. You really should splice into the fronts, instead of the rears though, as you're probably going to have more of the sound being sent to them. Unfortunately, the OnStar/Chime gets sent to the front driver side speaker. But if you're only running subs, hopefully your cut off is set right, and the chime noise won't make it through. However, any bass coming through OnStar will (conversations/directions/etc…).
