With the subwoofer you really don't want to pass it through anything that isn't shielded. You'll probably be OK, but if you get a hum, it may be because of the RCA switch.

I wouldn't want to be his business partner, but he has had decent products at good prices. I've never owned one of his speakers, but there are a lot of happy customers. I don't know about his autos.
