Hi all, I'm picking the question has probably already been asked many times however I cant seem to find the answers (that in itself possibly answers the question).

I'm wanting to add a sub to the boot of my sportwagon. Only a 10 inch in a small box so wont take up a lot of boots pace, though there is plenty of that! Question is, do the Sportwagons have the wiring run to the boot like the sedans but simply not used or do I need to run wiring from the door sills? Would be looking at a simple install using the high level inputs. Long term I may look at upgrading speakers etc as others look to recommend but just looking to improve sound a little at this point without removing door cards, messing with factory speaker mounts etc.

Cheers

talking out my arse, i doubt there would be wiring as there'd be no amp either.

I guess I'm just hopeful they used the same harness/loom for all models and just blank off the wires. Dreams are free maybe.

I found the best way is to use the rear speaker for my source, then use a line level converter to the Amp.
When you amp the speakers you'll want to add a quality LOC, I used A LC4i could

Looks good, tidy sub as well.. what model sub is that? Where did you put the LOC and where along the speaker wire line did you pinch into the sound?
