The normal rules apply. The hybrids has a alternator and a 12V system like most other vehicles for the electronics. One advantage is that there is large power bank to tap from so your amplifier can produce high power in transients . For example, in Teslas, the 12V system draws power from the higher voltage bank when necessary. I'm not sure how the japanese does it but there is alot the read online. Google up!

By alternator I mean the regeneration from the Hybrid DC motor for charging eh. The vehicle recharges itself as you progress.

Correct.

Buy a multimeter, check out what you plan to tap into..

But from my limited experience, the front battery remains stock.

The 12v circuit, is it a step down through electronics to get it to 12v or is a Tap off directly from the battery bank? Cause if it is through electronics, u might overload that 12v circuit capcity.

If it is a tap off from the bank, well, Bob's ur uncle.

I believe it's a DC to DC buck converter feeding off the higher voltage bank.

I have a factory head unit with navigation for a honda accord hybrid (english) and the antenna module if you're interested.
There's also a full guide on the web for installing an aftermarket system in this car. May also help with other similar vehicles.

The electricals are simpler than most ppl think.
