Depends on into what you are directing the output. By default, with the standard OEM sound system, the HU output is "speaker-level". I believe you mentioned to me in a PM that you are using an LC2i, in which case, the L2Ci will accept speaker-level input and "adjust" it to a level acceptable for amplifier input.

Note that some amplifiers specifically accept speaker-level inputs directly, in which case there may be a switch for selecting the appropriate setting for your configuration. The one advantage you can get from leaving the HU outputting speaker-level signals is that such signals can be (and often are) used to trigger remote on signals on these amplifiers or from a box such as your L2Ci, or a DSP, like the Mosconi 6to8 that I'm using.

For my remote line im going to run to my rear cig lighter 12v. From what i read the L2Ci is designed to hooked directly to the rear speaker cables so im assuming it will work fine.

The LC2i will generate a remote signal when a speaker-level signal "appears" on its input jacks. See this thread (http://www.golfmk6.com/forums/showth...t=35644&page=3) for lots of good info on using and configuring an LC2i.
