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.

2012 Sonata GLS Factory radio w/o nav or sub.

Did I post this in the right section? Really need some help with this and it seems the people of this forum respond quickly and look out for each other. Is there a better place to ask my question. Thanks.

This is the place for our car. I'd offer help, but all I can say it good luck. I'm no wiring guru. I had mine installed at a car audio shop. They round the wire to the battery terminal under the plastic cap, then through the firewall, eventually down through the "baseboard?" (Not sure what it's called, sill plate maybe, at the driver side of the car and into the trunk.

The Amp is installed on the back of the rear bench.

what type of LOC are you using? also what type of amp? newer amps sometimes have auto sensing remote turn on.

I am using a pac loc and have a Polk PA330 amp. Right now this amp is just going to push the sub and the factory radio will stay the same. I am just not sure where anyone else connected their remote line in cable. I have everything basically hooked up I just cant get the amp to turn on. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks.

i have the same one. (PAC LOC) and followed what it said to do in the instructions. i think you run a wire from the 12v constant that is going to your amp to the wire labeled for remote wire on the PAC and then on the side of the PAC run it to the remote of your amp. when the signal comes through the speaker wire on the PAC it will send the signal to the amp to turn on. at least it should.. i also installed a cut off switch in the remote wire run in between the amp and the PAC because my wife doesn't like the bass.....

I need more specifics. Are you using the amp to power the sub? Or is the amp for the door speakers?

I believe your going for amp powering the sub with the stock radio installed.

This is what I've done.

I ran a hot remote wire from the battery to a manual switch directly below the steering wheel, then back to my sub (your amp in your case). For a ground I removed the back seats and sanded around a ground chassis bolt for one of the seats for a good clean connection.

The reason I did a manual switch is I like the control, & my last auto built in signal auto off remote switch failed and left me with a battery that could battery start my car. Your preference weather you want to run it elsewhere.

This is old but might help ya.
