how to add an amp to 730n RHR with factory sub???

I have a 2014 JKU with the 730n and the 8" sub is weak. I would like to add an amp and was wondering if I can simply tap into the wires going to the overhead sound bar with a LOC and then run rca to my aftermarket amp or does the factory overhead speakers run off the factory amp?

If that isnt an option can anyone tell me which wires going into the factory amp I need to tap into?

2014 JKUR, 3.5" X Factor RK lift, 40" Nitto Trail Grappler's, RIPP supercharger and UD60s.

re: wires for bass sub

The wires you want to tap into are the following:

1st channel- Gray with white stripe (+) Dark Green with white stripe(-)
2nd channel- Gray with brown stripe (+) Dark Green with brown stripe (-)

The bass sub is a "dual voice coil" type sub, so has 2 channels (4 wires total) running to it from the factory amp.

What I did was tap into them off of the wiring loom that runs right along-side the passenger side front door, under the plastic trim and carpeting.

Then you can easily feed them into any 2 channel amplifier you want to wire up to go under the passenger front seat, as long as the amp has "speaker level" inputs. (Just cut the 4 wires listed above, solder extension wires onto all of them, and then hook them up to the amp's inputs and outputs. Run a power wire from the battery to the amp, and you're done.)
