04 h6 obw cig lighter socket, to power sub?

I plan to add an Alpine HU and a powered Sub. Is there adequate current at the Cig Lighter “Optional Power” socket? Fuse is 20A. NO way to get a 12V line through the Firewall. THANKS, everyone!

There's very easy way to get a 12V line through the firewall. Just SW of the brake booster is a rubber grommet you can pop loose and a diamond shaped pad pops out under the dash. See the attached for shots from my '01 VDC.


In case that's still not an option [ O_O ], what's the model of the subwoofer you're planning on?
