Help installing a Kicker Hideaway Sub in a 2012 Silverado
I want to install a Kicker Hideway Subwoofer under the rear seat of my 2012 Silverado Extended Cab.
To do this, I need to connect it's harness to two speaker's wires (a left and a right), and I'm assuming the rear speaker wiring would be the easiest to get to since I'm installing this under the rear seat.
Any idea where I can find this wiring in the rear of the cab? Does it run up a panel somewhere that's easy to get to?

The barn door speaker wiring should run along the back, up, and through a rubber accordian gasket to the speakers in the doors, just like the ones in the front doors (but in reverse). You'll probably have to pull the rear seating out, and probably the frame as well, to be able to pull the carpet back and pop the plastic covers off, to be able to get at the wiring.

I don't want to get rid of the stock deck; it does everything I need it to do, and there's so much that goes through it (OnStar, steering wheel controls, ect) that I don't want to have to go through the hassle of getting 15 different things to make an aftermarket deck work. I'm hoping this addition will make the system a lot better..

Don't connect to a left and right speaker...you will give your subwoofer a stereo input signal and it will sound very strange with certain songs, subwoofers are not side dependent, run all signal wiring to one speaker and give your driver a mono input, mono is a signal type reserved for drivers and center channels.

Frequency is NOT side dependent.
