Factory head units have no pre-amp outputs for the amp, however Google and some reading on Crutchfield provided to be very valuable. You can buy a Line-Out Converter that splices into front speaker wiring and converts the signal to RCA Outputs, and they can supply an amp to send output to all speakers, not just subs.

Basically problem solved, and I would love nothing more than to spend an afternoon installing everything and posting a nice 'how-to' for anyone here that wants to do the same for the non-MFT foci.

Now I just gotta figure out where to mount both, and where to fit a sub god I can't believe I'm already planning to tear this thing apart!
Read this thread here when one person, myself and a few others installed subwoofer/amp with a LOC
Adding a sub/amp to a 2012 with video!
