Default Plastic Burning Smell in my Park Avenue

I have a 2004 Buick Park Avenue, naturally aspirated with 160,000 miles on it. I have noticed in the last few months a burning smell coming from the car, and it smells like plastic. I have been trying to pinpoint this problem, but every time I think I have it figured out, it turns out to not be anything. (first the seat heater, maybe something in the heater itself). I feel like it is also worth noting that I have 2 subs in the trunk on a 1000 watt amp.

I'd suggest disconnecting anything aftermarket as a good start.

Does the smell get better or worse if you turn the blower on high and turn off Recirc?

Does the smell happen only when running? Driving? More details please!
