I want to install mine by tapping into the subwoofer line rather than the passenger speakers. Can you elaborate on that?  You ran wires from under the passenger to where?

 

thanks!

Read my last quote. I connected them to a RCA line converter which I just put under the back of the seat and ran my RCA'S to my amp

I found an easier location to tap the sub wires actually. If you pull up the kick panel in the rear passenger door frame there's a small channel that the wires run through under a plastic cover. You just pop the cover off and find the blue and Grey wires and tap into them and you're set

Thanks!  So the only long run is the power from the passenger side back?

Yep. There's the rubber Grommet on the driver's side fire wall that you can run through power through. Then just run it through the channel on the drivers side to the rear. Very easy. Find an open fuse in the fuse box on the drivers side dash and hook up the remote wire

So guys, I just received my 2022 CC Chevy and I opted for the upgrade kicker amp and sub, "Audio Upgrade W\\\\/o Bose By Kicker - GM (19417165)".  Didn't really want to install it myself but was not going to pay the dealer for 5 hours labor, especially when the kit says 1 hour. Anyone that can do it in an hour is really good I guess. So I have most of the kit installed but apparently they gave me the wrong power harness for the amp. Can anyone please tell me which wire is the positive for the amp, the brown or the green? Also, should I change anything from the installation instructions before I finish the install?  Trying to follow what you guys have been changing but its a little much for an older rock lover!  Thanks for your help.
