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.

Follow this guide

https://www.crutchfield.com/S-410ooYbMb ... ybrid.html

In the hybrid toyota clubs we are seeing people totally disregard good sense and go overboard with music installs.

Hybrids are not like your conventional cars, there are no alternators to take supply from, the high voltage battery (144v) in aqua and fielder/axio does a step down via a converter to 14v to recharge the 12v battery

Also the 12v battery does not start the car, the Hv battery does, these cars have no conventional starter either, so the 12v battery is usually very small in capacity since it does not have much load to supply

I have XS POWER direct replacement AGM Batteries for Toyota and other Hybrid vehicles. By Installing a higher capacity AGM Auxiliary battery, you can run additional amplifiers.

Manufacturer recommends you to use an AGM battery as your 12v AUX batteries in these vehicle
