Re: How do you connect amp to 01 xtracab rear speakers?

I just picked up another Civic from Ga yesterday (99 coupe), and when I got it home, I found a 10" JL sub and amp in the back. It was wired in with one of those converters off of one of the rear deck speakers.
And no, I do not always look at the car fully when the price is right. I just buy it. Lol.

I usually do not use them, but since the car has the stock cd player in it, I will just leave it the way it is until I get around to swapping out the head unit.

The Kicker documentation mentioned they offer an optional wiring harness that can be used if your system has RCA plugs.

Probably not. You'd probably need to use either (a) an installation harness from the head unit manufacturer or (b) an aftermarket installer harness (e.g., from Scosche, etc.) to patch the new head unit into the OEM wiring scheme without splicing.

ALWAYS use an install kit for wiring an aftermarket head unit. Nothing worse than people cutting factory wires for a stereo.

Usually about ten bucks (unless it's Euro).
