Yes you can. You need a line out converter. You can buy one here for $12. Buy.com - Scosche Loc80 2-Channel Adjustable Lineout Converter - LOC80

Connect those wires to the speaker leads on the rear 6x9's in the rear deck. You will obviously need more wire for them to reach. Then, you plug your RCA's into the amp you are going to run a sub off.

Yes sir, you're right on the money. The speakers have a higher wattage signal that just needs to be converted into a low level input for the amp. That's what the LOC does. Then just wire your power and ground wires for the amp and hook up the sub and you are good to go.

That is one way of doing it but depending on your amp you don't actually need an loc. If your amp is set up for high inputs you can just run speaker wires from your 6x9's directly into your amp. If you haven't already bought your amp or speaker and you are really just looking for a little bit extra versus a ton of bass, check out the infiniti bass links.

I did exactly as stated above. I tapped the rear lines and have a LOC in it running to an amp. It took around 3 hours because I was cleaning out the car as I was doing it. Good time to clean since I took out the molding on one side of the car, along with the rear seats, to run my power and remote wires. I have my remote setup with a switch near my driver seat since I like being able to run with/without my sub on.

Just one quick thing to add, make sure your car doesnt have a factory amp, if it does, make sure you put the LOc (line out convertor) on the output side of the factory amp.

Uhhhh, bud....all IS300's have a factory amp. You should know that being an installer. And it should be obvious to tap for a signal after the amp since the speakers are in the trunk area already.
