What are these wires for?

I'm not a paid member but I will try to post a pic up to show which wires I'm talking about. They are located in the trunk of my '07 SRT8 and they're right above the drivers side tire well in the trunk and are coming out of the trunks carpet.

Looks like the Kicker subwoofer and amp harness.

Are you the only owner of this vehicle? Because early on, adding the Kicker upgrade was pretty popular The biggest issue was getting the harness with the speaker and amp. Some folks upgraded their Kicker to another setup and hacked up the harness... and it became unobtanium.

No, I purchased the SRT8 used. From what my VIN pulls up, it's the Bouston Acoustics setup.

They don't look like the connector on my kicker sub? Do those go to the sub amp under the rear deck & then there's another set from the amp to the sub?

those don't look like the kicker setup. From what i remember, the only wires in that area for the kicker was the two prong connector for the subwoofer, all the rest of the wires were under the rear deck.

The one plug looks exactly like what goes into the back of the woofer itself. The little black one looks like the connection to the amp. I think I have a picture of the harness somewhere.....

Rats...I dumped it along with the kicker amp and sub pics when I sold the mod to someone else.

But those look dang familiar.

Have you pulled back the trunk liner to see where they lead to?
