with the basslink you have 2 options on how you want to wire it. no mater what you will need to run a power wire and a ground, and possibly a remote turn on lead.

you can tap into the factory speakers with a provided harness, with this method you dont need a remote turn on according to crutchfield.

the other is to run it off a set of rca cables, this is the best option for sound quality. if you have a factory unit you can get a converter that will tap into the speaker wires best connected behind the factory unit. if you go with the rca option you will need a remote turn on lead.

it is much easier than it sounds, since you have aftermarket speakers i would say to go with option 1, just tap into the speaker wires of the aftermarket speakers.

most of the powered subs are the same way, some have only a set of rca connections.
