    Alright, My pictures I have of my old HU install are not what I was looking for, I can tell you that when I bought the parts, I went up to my local cartoys and got all the wiring stuff I needed. I got this small black box, about the size of a coldcathode transformer box. It had about 1/2 dozen small 16 gauge wires out of one side and two rca outputs. I tapped into the rear left speaker line. To the best of my knowledge (again this was like 8 months ago when I was stereo idiot) the black box changed the signal to RCA, because at the time I was using a OEM HU. let me do some searching online.

    I'm going to take it out on monday, and the box is still there, I'll take pictures for you then if I cant find anything on the interweb.

    I think you may be able to find it cheaper if you shop around. edit: Note, thats for a 2 channel amp or 4 channel.

    You can just tap into the rear speaker wires with a T-Tap and a male spade connector. No need to cut them and lose the rear speakers. Then just run the wires from there to the input converter an RCA cables from that to the amp. The sound quality isn't as awful as they make it sound. I have had aftermarket h/u's and will upgrade the factory h/u in my truck someday but this is how mine is hooked up and it sounds pretty darn good.

    sorry to dig this up but...

    are rca cables basically just positive and negative speaker wire? my amp already has a low pass filter on it and if i hacked off an end to an rca cable and wired it to my left and right rear speakers would that work?

    thanks!
