If you can see connections on one of the rear speakers then find those same wires at the amplifier to make the connections for your LOC. You only need to find the wires for left or right not both because of subwoofers being mono. Wire the solid grey and solid white together and the grey/stripe with the white/stripe together from the LOC. You will want to strip the factory wire back and solder the LOC wires directly to the factory speaker wiring. DO NOT CUT the factory wiring you are only "borrowing" the signal so the aftermarket amplifier has the proper information.
