I dont mind wiring the system where i utilize the rears to power the sub then back out output throught the crossover. I was just wondering if moving all four in would issue more rms which honestly it does NOT seem to do in the least.

I do know though that using the rears and increasing their gain vs front resulted in much quiter listening even when adjusted by level 2 of 11 and it made it HIGHLY undesireable. I will tinker with it more over the weekend and find out the best method to get punch in this car without wiring in an amp.
As for the wiring harnesses the speakers use a proprietary connector and MUST be spliced at one point or another. I just plugged the sub input into the connector on the cord and tape and velcroed it into place then ran the crossover line to the prongs on the speaker and liquid electrical taped them into place taking meticulous care when reinserting the speakers since they have to rotate to lock into place.
As for the wiring that took place through small holes in the bottom of the door (existing) then along the door jam and into and under the trim then under the front seat and to the back seat where the sub sits (behind me.)
While its not an amplified system if you are i terested in adding some boom this is DEFINITELY a viable (yet time consuming) method to do so without EVER touching your warranty (at least that they will ever know about if you are careful.)
