    You can pick up the feeds for a sub amp from the rear amp already in the boot, you just need to run power. No need for a high to lo converter or using the speaker input to the amp (which is the same thing) as the rear pre-outs already run from the HU to feed the rear amp, along with the remote on feed to turn it on.
    If you use the proper BLAU adapter which plugs int the HU then you will lose the feed to rear the rear amp so your rears won't work anymore.

    you will still need to run a power cable from the battery where ever you take the remote from. What are you looking to drive with it? Sub? Comps?

    Here's the pinout, you just need 4 wires, left & right pre-out, screen and remote on. Just strip the end off an RCA cable and splice into these wires using a small terminal block i.e. cut the 4 wires indicated below, then joining them together again with a terminal block along with the signal wires, screen and remote on from the RCA lead, job done! You now have a clean pre-out signal for your sub amp.


    Also remove the sub speaker, disconnect it and insulate the connections and refit the speaker as you don't want the stock Audi sub still in the equation. This way you retain the amp for the rears.
