Sub Led's

so i wanna put a led strip on the back of my sub box so that when i open my truck the red leds come on...would it be ok to just splice into my truck light wire in order to do this.. and will that give the led's enough power? any suggestions?

yeah that should work fine, the LED's don't take up too much power, so you should be OK splicing it in with the trunk light

Just splice the wires from the led strip to the wires for the trunk light bulb, thats what duffy did, his come on when his trunk opens and im about to do the same with blue LEDs. red is power and black is ground
