hi guys, I am installing an alternative amp for a single sub in the trunk, and I want to keep the stock system in for right now with the stock deck. anyways my question is, I need to tap into the rear speaker wires. I see the amp, but cant make sense of which one is the rear set of wires and which is the in and out of the amp. I am guessing the farthest one back with the big White/red wire is the in connector. so what would be a good set of wires to tap into for a set of left and right incoming amp leads. also one more thing. I need a wire that turns on when the ACC. is on. so that way my amp isnt on all the time. basically I need a remote lead. I want one in the trunk so I dont have to run the wire all the way up to the front. help here. what is that wire too! let me know as soon as possible, I need this thing installed by tomorrow
thank
Lance

another question. when installing my amp, what do you think, should I take the wire going into the amp for the inputs to my new amp, or grab it on the way out of the stock amp, for my new amp input. basically what I am asking is should I be running it through 2 amps?

you can access the rear speker wires where they connect to the speakers. If you go into your trunk and look up where the speakers are you should be able to see the wires. You can use them for a signal to the amp.

i recently installed a sub in my car as well...
the speaker wires your looking for are blue and yellow, there are little stripes going around them to help you discern from positive (+) and negative (-)
hope that helps...
right (+)=blue/violet
right (-)=blue/green
left (+)=yellow/violet
left (-)=yellow/brown

hope this helps!
