This is true and the easiest way to go. Not only is the cabling to the amp much shorter and easier this way, but it makes more sense if you understand the CANBUS system.
The only signals coming off the back of the headunit are CANBUS, which are all sent to the factory BA amp behind the left rear quarter panel. If you check on WKJeeps pinout diagram (see the amp section)
, you'll see that the CANBUS signals are brought in by the BA amp and then sent out through the outputs as standard speaker level outputs.
If you tap into the speaker level outputs (definitely do the rear speaker output as it's full-range output w/o any factory crossover - unlike the front and dash speakers), it will allow you to use the factory sound levels (as the BA amp will control the volume somewhat).
Reply back if you have any other questions.
