Tapping into rear speaker/sub's from the trunk

I have a 2008 M3 sedan with premium audio and can't seem to find the exact answer I'm looking for in "Search".

I have a setup from my old car, its a OEM 10" Kicker powered sub from my old SRT8. It has a really easy wiring harness, that needs to be grounded, connected to the battery, then has self tapping connectors that need a signal from a positive and negative speaker.

Does anyone have a diagram of where I could tap into some speaker/ sub wires from the trunk?

Thanks.

You cannot do this on the M. You will need an LOC for what you are looking to do along with Technic's harness.

Yeah.
Figured it wasn't going to be that easy.
Guess I will probably just sell the sub.
Thanks for your help.

i wouldn't
adding a sub was probably the best thing i did to my car
technics harness with LOC is about $140
well worth it
plus, they are easy to sell when you get rid of your car
and they retain their value well
so you won't lose much when you sell it
and easy as pie to install/uninstall

Thanks guys, I actually just sold the sub.
But I will consider the LC2i in the future after I finish with a tune, test pipes and a filter.
