That is correct...at least that's how my installer handled it. I think that the reason he didn't intercept the signal before it hit the Bose amp is that it was some proprietary databus cable of sorts.
The Rockford 3Sixty functions in much the same way as the CleanSweep but the 3Sixty is A LOT
more customizable...you can program custom EQ curves, set crossover points and fine tune the signal far more intricately. The CleanSweep is not capable of doing any of that on its own it merely takes the factory signal and uses DSP to flatten out any pre-programmed curves.
The only two drawbacks I can see with using the 3Sixty is that it requires a Windows Mobile handheld to program (SmartPhone or PDA) and it is a bit pricier than the CleanSweep, but you do get more flexibility. If your installer will program it for you or if you already have a Windows Mobile device, the 3Sixty should work really well and give you a plethora of tuning options.
