Six speaker system

Where do I pick up my full range signal for my MS 8 inputs does anyone know?

Do I need to pull the head unit or can I pick them up farther out?

I tapped into the speaker wires running up the middle pillar for the rear right speaker (passenger side) - although I was just hooking up a subwoofer and only needed one pair for a mono signal:

If you are trying to get both left and right signals, you will need to either grab the left signal from the opposite pillar, or find out a good location before the wiring harness splits in order to get both sides. Here are some wiring schematics that may help:

Let us know where you finally decide to get your signal and how it goes. If you tap in closer to the head unit, or before the wiring harness splits, I would be interested in hearing the details.

Down the road I may decide to install more speakers and will need left inputs for a full range stereo source.
