ipod/iphone to amp to speakers

so i've been wanting to do this setup in my car forever. i am not an audio expert and i wanted to make sure this works without any unforeseen seen problems.

i have an iphone 3g and an 80gig classic video and a 2007 civic ex coupe.
what i want to do is totally remove the headunit, install factory navigation trim to cover up the gaping hole and have the speakers controlled by an amp in the trunk receiving its signal from an auxiliary output wire from an ipod charger combo.

my list of products would be:
http://us.kensington.com/html/14492.html
this would allow me to use either ipod or iphone and have a volume controller which was my biggest worry.
have a y adapter to go from the 3.5mm jack in the kensington unit, through a ground loop isolator and into inputs on an amp.
most likely this amp: http://www.crutchfield.com/p_500MRPF...00.html?tp=115

wire all the speakers to it and i would hope that everything works and looks nice.

any drawbacks to an install like this? is there anything i didn't think of?
