That way your run of wire would consist mostly of 12 gauge and only a couple inches of stock factory wiring. That would be safe to run 95wpc on and that way you dont have to drill into a brand new 2012.
That is exactly what I did. I've ran close to 300wpc to my front stage this way.

Thanks for chiming in Mitch.
