Base model 2 speaker system- adding rears?

So I have the base CD player head unit with only the 2 front door speakers. I think the head unit will support rear speaker output because it has a digital fader. Does anyone know if the rear doors are wired for speakers or will I have to run wire?

Id say they are there. Just pop off the door panel, and take a good look. If not, just get some wire, and route it from the radio to the door. Easy fix!

I thought I heard someone say their 2012 sedan wasnt prewired and they had to take it to a shop to get the back doors wired along with speakers. Im not sure though. Where are the 2012 sedan owners?

It's not prewired..I had to get mine wired and you have to splice them in with the front speakers because your head unit only has a connection for 2 speakers..ya it's really stupid but if you get an aftermarket head unit you'll be much happier

Would you really have to splice the front two wires at the radio? Would if you bought an OEM harness from sonicelectronics.com, and plug it into the radio. that would give you four speaker wires, and then get another harness to plug into the the car harness and wire the right wires together. But I do agree on getting an an aftermarket radio. But this would be a cheaper way to go if you dont have the money. Prolly about $100 for both harness, speaker wire, and 2 speakers.

Yes that could work, but if you're going to do speaker upgrades to your car it'd be better to get a new head unit so they sound good anyways. Each has its pros and cons though. I put 4 new speakers in mine with a double din head unit for about 400.

I know, it's usually more than that. Speakers are around $200 and headunit around $500 so you got a hell of a deal.
