Default Update and Urgent Question

Okay, so here's an update on my speaker/amp install:

- Have all the speakers installed and running off the factory H/U
- have the amp in place under the drivers side with the power, remote, and ground wires ready to connect (remote is live, ground is connected to seat screw, power isn't connected at either end yet).

Tonight I am planning on running the new speaker wires from the AMP to the speakers, and connecting the LOC to the head unit harness. Looking at alldatadiy.com, the wiring diagram shows two sets of wires to the rear speakers...any idea why this is, or which wires I should tap into for the rear speakers?


Pin Circuit Description
1 A114 18GY/RD FUSED B(+)
2 - -
3 - -
4 X716 20GY/TN LEFT AUDIO OUTPUT
5 D55 20WT/OR CAN B BUS (+)
6 D54 20WT CAN B BUS (-)
7 X154 18GY/YL RIGHT FRONT DOOR SPEAKER (+)
8 X156 18GY/LB RIGHT FRONT DOOR SPEAKER (-)
9 X155 18DG/LB LEFT FRONT DOOR SPEAKER (-)
10 X153 18DG/YL LEFT FRONT DOOR SPEAKER (+)

16 X776 20TN/GY RIGHT AUDIO OUTPUT
17 X795 20DG COMMON AUDIO OUTPUT
18 X205 18GY/LG LEFT REAR SPEAKER (+)
18 X51 20DG/DB LEFT REAR SPEAKER (+)
19 X295 18GY/DG LEFT REAR SPEAKER (-)
19 X57 20DG/OR LEFT REAR SPEAKER (-)
20 X296 18DG/GY RIGHT REAR SPEAKER (-)
20 X58 20GY/OR RIGHT REAR SPEAKER (-)
21 X206 18DG/LG RIGHT REAR SPEAKER (+)
21 X52 20GY/DB RIGHT REAR SPEAKER (+)
22 Z515 18BK GROUND

Ya know what, I just realized something, the pin numbers are actually repeated....I guess maybe that's for the two different types of systems...premium and non-premium. Guess I'll just have to look at the pin location and confirm with the color...
Nevermind then :-) I will leave this posted in case someone else needs this information. This is for a 2008 Dodge RAM Quad Cab

I can tell you where to tap into them behind the kick panels, but as far as behind the radio, never done that before.

Allright, making some progress -- I tapped into the front left and rear left + speaker wires, and ran those to the amp. The front left wires were accessible (barely) behind the kick plate, and rear left wires were accessible in the bundle of wires running to the back of the car (not sure what it's called, but where you step to get in the front seat.
The 4 channel amp calls for connecting all 4 + speaker wires, and then there's a fifth wire to ground. No need to connect the high level - wires.

Anyhow, my biggest challenge was getting the 14 GA speaker wire into the door. I tried and tried to get it through the channel that was already there, but it absolutely would not go -- I think finally I realized why it wouldn't go, there are harnesses there, I don't think there's actually any space for more wires to go through there. So, I managed to pull out the boot from the door, poke wire through it (which was VERY hard because of the type of rubber, it's still watertight), and and then find another hole with a rubber plug to route it back into the car.

So far:

Power: Ready to Connect
Ground: Ready to Connect
Remote Wire: Ready to Connect
Left Front and Rear High Level Input: Ready to Connect
Left Front Speaker: Ready to Connect

Still need to connect the other three speakers, and the right inputs.

Below is a picture of the speaker wire running into the door.
