    I would avoid cutting the factory wires if at all possible. Instead, just get a set of harnesses like this, and tap into the harnesses:

    AFFINITY SLE3032 Button Assembly BCH18D001H | eBay


    Radio Install OEM Reverse Male Wire Harness Cable Plug | eBay


    I've cut plenty of factory harnesses when I was younger, and usually ended up with problems later. You'll need the first plug anyway, if you plan to eventually replace the stereo.


    As to your original question, are you trying to run the factory amp, in addition to an aftermarket amp? Are you adding additional speakers?

    You need to wire your sound system correctly for proper sound and you don't want to blow your amp or speakers. Right

    If you just need "ins" for the amp to power a sub, just tap into the plug at the rear most speaker and then bridge the amp for the subs.

    We did that in my son's camry so he could get his amp/subs going. It hits hard now. Reminds me of high school days, doing all that type of stuff again. I gre up in socal in the late 80s, early 90s when everyone had the mini trucks with all the bass

    1,2 or 4ohm. What are speakers rated at. It makes a difference. Do your research and get it right.

    If you have time, post the schematic here for those who come along later.
