Hooking up aftermarket radio to factory amp?

Is there like a step by step guide for this? Ive looked and all Ive found were wiring diagrams. I took the console out and looked at it I just dont know were to hook the amp turn. Any help is appreciated.

Its been a while since i did a stereo in one of these, but if you link your aftermarket radio blue and blue/white together and solder them to the blue in your harness, it should work fine.

just buy a wiring harness adapter, they are like 10 bucks, plugs into your factory wiring, then splices into your radio.

my amp distorts really bad when i have my radio turned down low... any ideas?

l if you have a factory amp in your car and you TRY and use it for a aftermarket radio then you will most likly have a few problems with that..That amp is probally an infinity so the best way whould ither just get a new amp thats better or you can do it if you run all new speaker wires to each and every speaker because if im not mistaking infinty uses special connections..That amp will need to be by passed if you go with a aftermarket amp

what rca's???... i dod not have the plugs for the rca on the adapter. should i buy one with the rca? if i can find one? i unhooked up the amp power hook up and it sounded better because the sub was not kicking in at low noise levels, but i hooked it up because i could not hear the music on the highway.
