The 8" woofers in door have two amps going to the 8" dual coil woofer. The tricky part is finding all the plugs, they are more expensive than what they need to be. here is the list of plugs needed (OEM NUMBERS) TBD
LIST OF PLUGS
71-5520-1 Metra Plug kit (three plugs for head unit)
WPT-626 (2ea) TO connect to door woofers
WPT-663 (2ea) TO output for door amps (add 4 more for trunk amps)
WPT-667 (2ea) Door Amp Input PLug
WPT-396 (1ea) Trunk Amp input plug
