I think I am going to go for on the left had side of the boot, just to the right of the compartment which house fuse box (on the outside of course).

On the hollow carpet bit. Took a screw fine and feels secure enough

I am going to be following Saba's guide, but just have 1 question. It was mentioned to tap into speaker wires going into amp under passenger seat.

This may be a silly question, so sorry, but for the adaptor in the boot which is for the 2nd Saab OEM upgrade amp, couldnt I just tap into these speaker wires? I know Saba's guide did say to tap into the power lead on this adaptor, but aren't these speaker wires within this adaptor too? This adaptor must also be coming from the factory head unit no?

You can tap into those speaker wires if you like, but you'll get no sound, they not connected to anything.#
The plug they are in along with the power cable is for connecting into amp 2, so the ends you're lloking at are the outputs from the non-existant amp 2, the other ends of those cables lie somewhere around the parcel shelf awaiting connection to the 6x9s that come with amp2.

Ok, thanks mate. I will only use the power cable from this plug then.
