Quick Line Output Converter question

Read up on what I need to do. But I do have one question. First, the background info:

-430 RBZ no amp, no sub, non premium sound (kicker upgrade speakers however)
-Just adding a subwoofer amp and subwoofer. Amp will only be used for sub.

Here's the question. I am using T splices to splice into my rear speaker wires to add the line output converter. Won't it diminish the factory speaker sound since the signal is going to two sources now (speakers and amp)?

Also, what LOC do you recommend?

A LOC has a significantly higher input impedance than speakers do which means it won't place enough of an additional load on the head unit amplifier for it to be an issue.

Thanks! Any recommendation on one specifically for a subwoofer amp?

I purchased the Audiocontrol LC2i since it's actively powered and corrects for the bass rolloff. Just wondering if it was worth the extra money

On the amplified systems, the bass is significantly decreased on the back channels, not sure about the non-amplified versions. You may want to research a bit more so you don't tap into the rear channels if they limit the bass.
