Line output converter help

So I installed a line-out converter to my REC nav unit until I sell it so I can hook up my amp and sub. Followed the instructions and used a quick connect from the rear right and left speakers to l.o.c. Ran the remote from the acc. on the deck.. Amp turns on and sub works. However the sub is at full volume even when the volume is on 1. When i turn up the volume the sub doesn't get any louder. I got a metra converter that has a ground wire and even tried grounding it and still the same thing. Did I miss something?

Doesn't make a difference except that the sub isn't as loud. Shouldn't the volume on the hu still control the sub volume

Yes there is. But i dont understand why it wont adjust the volume of the amp along with the actual volume like it does with an aftermarket hu. If i have the hu volume at about 20+ it's sounds awesome but from vol. 1-19 it's all bass because the amp is at full power the whole time. Is this something that always happens with L.O.C. I figured it would increase the volume of the sub the same as the speakers. Not just push the amp at 100% the whole time

No that isn't normal. If it was there would be no market for LOCs. Theres got to be a happy combination of gains between both the amp and the loc. start with them both at the bottom and work their way up. What about bass boost on amp and deck? Seems obvious but sometimes easy to overlook.

So I figured it out. You have to run the l.o.c. from the speaker not behind the head unit. everything goes to an amp somewhere and then gets split off and sent to the speakers. just can't figure out how to run the rca from the rear door to under my seat but at least my bass sounds good now at not at full volume all the time

Where is the amp in the non-Boston system located? Been wondering that.
