After reading several things about replacing the factory amp, and after looking at the color codes for the harness of the factory amp, i am still a bit confused on how to proceed in installing the aftermarket 4 channel amp. Am i going to have to splice into the existing wires for a turn on lead? And the same for the speaker wires? I just want to make sure there isnt an easier way of doing this before i proceed into adding the new amp

Why not just skip messing around with the factory crap and install your own dedicated speakers wires and rca's. Doing this would allow you to keep all the factory wiring intact should you sell the car in the future.

That probably will be the easiest way to go. I just dont feel like feeding the speaker wire and rca's through the car again lol. Oh well, if i want it done right, might as well do it that way. Thanks!

Its really not that bad. I absolutely HATE messing with factory wiring. Especially when there is some OEM amp involved.

I ran two sets of speaker wire to each front door over 4 years ago just in case I decided to run active one day, which now I am, so it saved me the work.

thats a great idea, i may do that in all of my future cars just in case i ever want something more. That way, the time consuming part is basically over with. Thanks!
