Hi Heavyduty,

Thanks for the warm welcome,

Here is what I have been able to find on the wiring.

Car Radio Ground Wire: Brown

Because I will have limited access to the back of the stereo my plan was as mentioned go right to the battery (with fuse), ground out to a bolt in the back (most likely a seat mount) and then tap directly into the rear speaker wires before it hits the speakers because i have better access. The "remote" power lead from the amp would tap into the Car Stereo Antenna Trigger Wire: Pink that way the amp will come on when the radio comes on. We just bought the car so I have not had much time to actually get in and play around. But my biggest concern is getting it all apart and require some additional "stuff" Does the fuse holder come with a Terminal ring etc to bolt to the battery or will I need to purchase that?
