Easiest way to wire Amp and Subwoofer on a 9-5!!

Hey guys/girls...I am looking to figure out the simplest way to wire up an amp and sub woofer. I attached the specs for my system..I have the prestige setup with 9 speakers..I was looking to splice the 6x9's and run it into the amplifier and setup the sub woofers on mono what do you guys think?

this sounds like way more power than what i have in my 9-5 (200w infinity basslink)

what i did was pull power from the trailer wiring harness, made my own ground, and took the signal from rear deck speakers.

with your set up, its sounds like you are going to need a true power cable from the battery. I have never ran a cable from the front in a 9-5 buy in the 9000, i pulled it through the firewall (a coat hanger straightened out with a small loop on the end works well) then ran it under the plastic door ledge things, i assume you can do this the same on a 9-5, just don't know how easy those covers come off

also, i dont really see it to be necessary to run a ground back to the battery as well, make your own in the trunk, you can put it in place with many of the bolts hidden in the trunk

Thats pretty much the easiest way to do it. Line level off the rear speakers will work, although pre-amp from the h/u would be even better. You'll definitely have to run a fused power wire directly from the battery for the amp. Ground in the trunk.

its really not too difficult to run the power line from the battery. i did it on a 9-3 so it must be easier on the 9-5. i feel like that is the best way to do it.
