Default E46 HK Sub Amp diagram?

Hey guys.

IM trying to install a LOC in my 05 E46 330i Sedan has the HK system.

I want to tap off the Sub amp on the rear deck, I have used the full range method from BSW in my M3, and I found that I couldn't turn the volume up very loud without losing output with my subwoofer.

anyone have any ideas?

What I did was I actually tapped the subwoofer speaker outputs from the sub amp. I look for the sub amp wiring and it is very confusing, I'm not sure it's possible to directly tap the signal in between the main amp and sub amp. You could also tap the amp inputs from the head unit (main amp).
