I'm working on a '93 Explorer Limited with the JBL Premium Sound in it.  I'm working in bits-n-pieces, starting with the head unit.  I already installed a Sony head unit which doesn't come with an internal amp so I ended up hacking the amp signal plug from behind the HU and converting it to RCA jacks. 

I know they sell a plug that does it, but i didn't want to bother being pressed with time and the factory stuff is all going to be permanently eliminated little by little.  The subwoofer box was removed to mount a capacitor and a fuse block to prep for 2 aftermarket amps.  One is a four channel and the other one is a mono-sub amp. 

My question is...are the colors of the speaker wires found on the output of the factory amp (located on the rear passenger quarter) the same colors found behind the HU on the same truck without the premium sound? The amps are going under the seat and instead running new speaker wires all around (i'm lazy) I figured I can hack the wires coming out of the factory amp, specially since all the wires are there, even the remote trigger for the new amps.

Anybody know offhand the color code to the wires of the amp's output? Any help will be appreciated.

Why re-invent the wheel?
