If your amp has "speaker level inputs" just tap a pair of wires off your rear speakers in your hatch, and wire them into those inputs. If the amp doesn't have those inputs, you'll have to use a line out converter like SuperSoundSS said.

Not really man, this is a list of stuff u should need in order to install a amp + sub in youre car
-Line output converter
-8 Gauge power wire
- Power fuse (Same value as the one on the amp)
-8 Gauge ground wire (about 3 feet)
-blue remote turn on wire
*connect remote wire to a wire that gets +12V when key gets turned on, and make sure you fuse power wire within 1 foot of battery.

Actually you might not be able to run the line-out converter off of the speakers in the hatch because I believe there is a high-pass filter built into the stock amplifier that runs them. If so, you will have to run the converter off of the speakers on the sides of the back seat because they act as the subwoofers in the monsoon system and they are already crossed over to only play low frequencies.
