I'm looking for the wiring diagram for the factory amp of a 2013 Honda Pilot EX-L with Navigation and 7-speaker system. I am wanting to integrate an AudioControl LC7i after the factory amp and need to understand what wires go to what speakers.

Cool, I'm in Metairie. I'll be working on my Pilot and my wife's Odyssey over the next several weekends. Looking forward to it!

In another post that is now closed you were asking if wires needed to be cut and that you wanted to easily put it back to stock later. What I have done is a few inches out from the plug on the amplifier, cut the wires you need to and then on the end that goes to the speaker, crimp on a fully insulated male terminal and on the wire end off of the amplifier's output, crimp on a fully insulated female terminal. Later you can unplug what you have added onto these male and female terminals and then plug them back together. Having the male ends on the wire side that goes to the speaker allows you to easily pop the speaker off of a small AA battery.

Hey @Custom_Jim - this might be a silly question, but did you plug the connector back into the factory amp or leave it unplugged? I was just wondering if there is a need for it to get plugged back in so the factory amp still outputs signal to the wires that you did not cut into...

Ok now that I think about it, that's definitely a dumb question. If you don't plug the connector back in to the amp, you won't get a signal coming out of the amp to go in to the LOC.

No such thing as a stupid question. Yes the connectors got plugged back in as I used the 5 outputs of the amplifier (LF, RF, LR, RR, Sub) to a 4 channel amp and then also to a mono amplifier. The blue sheathed wire is a 9 conductor from Aamp of America and it might be called "Speedwire" and then I used a twisted pair of wires to come off of the factory sub wires. On the other end of the 9 conductor wire by the line level adaptors and the amplifiers I then also put on additional male and female bullets there to where come trade in time I can plug the proper wires together at the end of both the 9 conductors and then don't have to get back into where I originally made connections by the amplifier. The factory sub wires were just tapped into and the factory sub and how it was wired to the factory amp stayed the same. It seems to me also on that install the line level also generated a 12 volt turn on signal for the amplifier's.
