Factory subwoofer and amp retrofit - is it prewired?

    searched but couldn't find any info on this. Have the standard audio and had a chance to buy a used factory amplifier and subwoofer from the UHFS.

    Is it plug-n-play? Are the wires in place? Anyone else upgraded and have advice?

    I have seen the threads on audiophile upgrades, but this would be way cheaper (about $500 total) and good enough for me.

    I'm not positive but I thought that the 17" touch screen system was different between the standard and UHFS systems as well. (But maybe it is just the amplifier attached to the back?)

    Even if the wiring was there and you could install it, good luck getting Tesla to change the software configuration to use it.
