Amp Remote Wire

I'm adding a sub amp and I need a remote wire, where's a good place to tap into one?

If you run a PAC AOEM FRD24 which plugs inline with the factory radio and wiring harness, you can use the harness section of the PAC piece. Just cut off the Molex connector and solder RCA plugs onto the speaker wires to feed your amp. The harness has a remote lead already built into it, so that you don't have to tap into any factory wiring.

For best results just run it to your radio, did it in my car it's not hard and work fine. Did you run you power cable to your battery?

I know its not hard I just dont want to run it. I just did a HU replacement with the idatalink kit and I dont want to have to take it all apart again just for this wire. I read some where that you can tap into the antenna, can anyone confirm this?

Have you checked the reverse lights power wire? They should work.

Can confirm that you can tap into the antenna wire, that's what I did. I followed a write up from another forum and it worked perfectly.
