Remote wire location? DIY Sub amp install.
Alright guys, new to the forum and the car. Just purchased a 2012 GLS and so far me likey. I am in the process of adding a sub and amp and need some assistance with the remote lead wire for the amp. Yes, yes, I have scoured through the forums to see what others have done. The pink wire under the dash, tapping into the fuse box, etc.
Here is what I have done so far.
Ran power to the battery.
LOC from back of radio (tapped the two rear speakers).
Tried the remote wire on the pink wire under dash going through firewall. No signal. (PS, my car does not have push to start).
Looked in fuse boxes and could not find a safe place to tap into. I would prefer to have it done properly as I don't want any future electrical issues.
Really could use a little help here. I am sure the answer to my problems is here in the forums somewhere I just am not sure where. FYI, this forum is awesome, really helped me learn a lot about my car.
Also, has anyone added a 4 channel amp to a factory radio and connected a sub and just the front door speakers to amp? I would like a bit more sound out of the speakers but a quality 5 channel amp is expensive. Of course I would change the front speakers and let the factory radio push the rear and tweeters.
Pros and cons?
Thanks again in advance and apologies for asking the same things all the other n00bs have asked.
