2014 GT Shaker1000 add on

I'm looking to add an after market amp and sub to my shaker 1000 system. Can I tap into the power and remote wires going to the factory amp to avoid running wires from ignition and battery? If so does anyone have a wiring diagram to go off of?

You'll need a full length of low-gauge (very thick) wire run from the battery to power the amp. It pulls far too much current for any other power source.

I saw a write-up that mentioned that the antenna in these cars is powered. And only when head unit is on. So you should be able to find the wire you need right there in the trunk for a remote turn-on!

The radio antenna? I wasn't aware that it was powered. Do you know the reasoning? I only ask cause the only powered antennas I was aware of we're the ones that go up and down.

It is the blue wire going to the antenna. I have the link to a really good write up on how to run the power wire back to the trunk. I'll PM you with it. It's from another forum site so I'm not sure if I can post it or not.

I'm assuming the antenna is amplified. The only reason I can think of for it to be powered.
