Adding Amps to Factory Nav

I have the factory NAV unit. I would like to add a 4 channel amp to drive the factory door speakers, and a mono amp to drive a JL sub.

What I am looking for is a wiring harness that plugs inline with the factory harness (I assume at the factory amps) that would easily allow me to wire to a LC6i, as well as the speaker leads back to the factory wiring so I don't have to run new wires into each door.

My 4 channel is an older amp, but has always sounded great - but not a ton of power, so I don't think using the factory speaker wires will be an issue.

I can/could tap into the factory wires, but would prefer to use a pre-made harness to make life easy if one is available.

Any suggestions, and/or wiring photos are appreciated.

I am not sure anything like this exists. I have done a ton of research on factory integration and have not seen anything remotely like it. If you do find something, be sure to post it.

I never found one when searching either. Certainly would have made the install easier.

I haven't looked lately but Crutchfield usually has adapters to go to factory wiring for the stereos.

I looked at that one, but it doesn't list the 2011s in the application list.

I will contact Pac-Audio and see what they say.
