Adding an amp ,2013 F6B

Has anyone here added an amp and changed speakers on a late model Wing? I've got an NVX amp and I just put in a pair of MM seriesPolk Audio component 5.25" speakers. The amp has speaker level inputs, which I used the the factory fairing speaker channels to supply the input signal with. I was way less than satisfied with what should have been some awesome sound. I then bypassed the factory system all together and plugged my phone into the amp with a 1/8" plug to separate left and right RCA jacks . That was the sound I expected to get. awesome. Now today,I plan on picking a high to low impedance adapters and try that. If that proves unsatisfactory, I may need to find the input signal into the factory amp and tap into that for the signal to my new amp. Just wondering what experiences others have had. The speakers and amp combo sound very very good. I just need to involve the factory head controls/stereo .

Well, I tried the external line converters and had the same results. I tapped into the factory wiring harness and have success now. I now have an audio system that rocks. It is the first phase of the improvements planned.

Can share if anyone cares to know.

I don't know if the original poster will respond, he hasn't been on in over three years.
