Yeah same deal here. I think I can deal with the stock door speakers for now, but i'll probably upgrade later down the road.

Anyone look and see if there is already wiring in the trunk for it due to the sub being a dealer item? Sorry if it's been brought up before...

Look behind the battery (take it out) for a rubber grommet you can pass wires through. It feeds out under the carpet to the left of the steering column. You have to peel away a little of the sound deadening materiel to see it from inside.

I believe he is talking about the trunk BUT if he accidently wrote trunk instead of hood than you'd be right. I believe he is trying to find a way to hook up high level/speaker level inputs to an amplifier from wiring pre-existing in the trunk. which would be awesome than you would not have to splice into any door speaker inputs.

They have DIN slots, and most makers use them. Why not DIN connections, etc.? Why do car makers want to make it so impossible to upgrade these kinds of things? I'd think that "standard" audio/video connections would be a selling point! I find the car maker mindset impossible to understand.
