Amplifier installation

Hey all!

I'm looking to install a bass module under my front passenger seat. Who here was successful in installing an aftermarket amp, where the question is "where did you pull power from?" More than likely, I'll be running 10 Gauge wire, with a 25A max draw. I'll be tapping into the front door speakers for high level input. I have not lifted the rear seat bottom yet, so I have no idea if there's a 12V lug back there or not. Soooooo.... any tips? Pointers?

This is the product I'm thinking about... not looking to shake the neighborhood, just fill the cabin with rich bass...

The shop that did my install tapped into the fuse box in the engine bay on the drivers side.

Others have tapped into the 12V part of the battery under the back seat.

Go to the Electronics, Audio, and Accessories subforum and there is a lot of info there as to how to wire it all.

It is MUCH easier to tap into the 12 volt connection under the back seat on the drivers side. My power wire is about 7’ long and no having to find a grommet or drill to get it into the cabin.


There is a long write up in my system. It cost me $250 total doing everything myself, including building my own box for a 10” subwoofer under the drivers seat.
