Hey Bobby! I am looking to put subs in my 2017 optima hybrid and found this diagram. Iím assuming the wires should be the same....hopefully. I need to connect an rca tap for the amp off one of the rear speakers. Trying to find the easiest location to tap the wires without tearing it all apart. Thoughts?

Thank you so much for the reply!

Sorry to sound confused, but I want to make sure I am reading your reply right.

Connect to: blue-red, white brown wires, correct? Where are they located. The model I got did not have the Harmon Kardon package so there is no speaker in the trunk to tap into. I donít see an amp in the back to tap into, just the battery. If you could give me some details that would be amazing. I was just going to use an RCA to speaker wire connection and T-Tap into the wires and than a RCA 1 to 2 splitter to connect to the amp. i figured with the battery in the back that would be the spot for my positive and negative. As far as the remote, Iím assuming there is no where to connect that in the trunk right? I mean, if there is an amp than maybe so. The fuse box is right up front so if all else fails its an easy connect and tuck. Again, this is a 2017 Kia Optima Hybrid.

Thank you again for all the details!

Just to follow up I figured it out. I tapped into the Brown and White wires on the left side from the rear speakers with some RCA to speaker wire connections. I tapped into the cigarette lighter fuse on the panel in the front for my remote and being awesome ran the power and ground straight off the batter in the back. Tore the crap out of myself running wires but itís done!
