So last winter I got my 2015 Malibu and have been debating on a few opinions when having to wire up my subs. Here are my main 3 questions if you have answers to any please help.

1. Is the AUX battery that is in the trunk safe to run the amp? I have a 750w pushing two 350w 10" Crossfires.

2. I do not have the pioneer stereo like the 2LT and 3LT have but I do have a different amp which is what I believe it is in the middle of the underside of my trunk. I was curious if that is safe to tap into for my signal or if it is something else? The only details I got off of it was a WiFi badge and a Bluetooth badge.

3. Now depending if that is an amp on the back would I also be able to hook up my sensor wire to that one instead of having to run it all the way to the front of the dash?

If you need more info on my vehical or pictures I am more than happy to help. I want to get this thing booming but also without screwing my warranty. Thanks all for you help.

The module under the rear deck is for OnStar. You will need to pull output from the rear door speakers at the doors themselves or the B pillar. I went into the door & ran back since Im not using the rear door speakers. They are for fill & get lost with the added bass. Theres guys on here that use he trunk battery location but upgrade it & do the Big 3. I used the 12v outlet under the cd player for amp trigger. Theres LOCs that are sound triggered also.

With the way my 13 is sealed the Skar 8 & Fosgate Prime 500.1 is more than enuff with the seats down. I went a step futher few years ago & opened the pass through hole up incase I have passengers.

How did you take out the seat insert in the middle?
