You don't need a remote wire, but you will need a trigger such as a PAC TR-4 to tap off the rear speakers for example.

I assume you are using the stock head unit?

For ground I used a bolt behind the back seats.

LOC goes to the speakers you wish to tap the signal from... (eg: rear speakers). It turns the signal into RCA.
You might need to do some soldering

Yeah for the ground, there's a factory ground behind the rear driver-side shoulder bolster. Thats for the sedan

You should see the bottom of the speakers in the trunk they have a clip with two wires plugged in to them.

I never used a LOC so I don't know if you just use one side (rear right for example) or if you need to tap off both.

Also I do not know if the stock HU spearates the frequencies and only sends the lows to the sub, so maybe tap off of that?

Yes, you can remove that black cover to easily access the correct wires.
