Youll need an amp, an LOC (line out converter) and ideally a harness. There is a forum member who sells custom harnesses for our cars that plug directly into the HK amp and add a set of pigtails. Very clean install with no cutting. There are some junk LOC's out there that will get the job done, but people have complained about them burning up. I personally like the Audio Control devices. I use an LC6i, but that's because I already had one laying around. I believe AC now makes an LC2 (2 channel instead of 6) which is all you'll need.

As far as amps go, Something with a small footprint is ideal. I've used an Alpine PDX 1.600, which is a digital amp that doesn't produce much heat. Pretty solid piece too. I'm currently using a old school Nakamichi piece, but that's just because I'm a sucker for OG Nak equipment.

That was a long answer... Amp, Harness, LOC.
