Okay, I am a total noob when it comes to stereo installs but the local shop wanted to charge me $200 just for labor and another $70 in parts to install my subs and amp. I am very familiar with electrical work so i thought why not at least try it, as I've heard it's not too complicated.

So I've looked into what goes into it and have found a few questions. I've heard you can splice the LOC into the rear speaker instead of up near the head unit? I've heard you can use an amp which has line in inputs instead of an LOC? And if I instal the LOC near my dash, how many channels do I need on my LOC? I have a SE hatch with the tech package. So it has 4 speakers and two tweeters. I'm just trying to add a amp and two 12"s. Ive also seen a vast difference in price between LOC's, from $15-100. Get what you pay for? Or buy cheep? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I want to do it right.
