I'm not planning to replace the head unit. I have the 8.4 Uconnect system and it controls everything. I'm adding a 3Sixty.3 DSP so that I can correct the stock EQ, adjust time-alignment to account for the driver's non-equidistant position in relation to the speaker locations, set my crossover points, slopes, etc., and then send a clean signal to my amps before they get to my speakers. I'll need to tap into the speaker-level outputs at the read of the stock HU to get the signal to my 3Sixty.3.

Are you planning on getting rid of the 8.4?
