The easiest way will always be to install an aftermarket stereo with rca outs. To make it so the amp doesn't take up trunk space I recommend hiding the amp under one of the front seats.

If you need pics let me know.

have you tried searching the car audio, video, and security section on this forum? Have you searched google how to install an amplifier with a factory radio? (same basic concept for all vehicles).

You'll need an amp with high level inputs or a set of level converters for RCA inputs.

Many people mount the amp directly to the speaker box.

You can probably pull a signal at the rear door wiring and remote from the TPMS module in the rear deck. Get a factory service manual for the specifics.

Doesn't Subaru have a powered amp that you can get, that works perfectly with the stock radio? That may be an option depending on the needs.
