4 channel amp install

I'm gonna be installing a 4 channel amp soon, just wondering if anyone is kind enough to draw out a electronics schematic on how the wiring is to be runned.

The positive, ground, and remote are obvious wires that i dun need drawn, but i'm a bit confused on how to re wire the speaker wires since we don't have RCA outputs on our stock deck. I know there is some slicing to be done, but don't know exactly where the wires go.

I've installed a sub before no problem, that was a cut and paste project, easy..but getting a signal from the speakers to the amp i'm still a bit confused after reading all the previous posts through a search. I'm usually just upgrading subs into all my previous cars, but this time i wanna go for an upgrade into speakers since i don't want to drop an xtra $100 pounds of equipment into my car trunk for a sub. A schematic would solve all my problems! thx =)

Btw, if anyone has a diagram of the back of the HU, that would be good too, only could find the NAVI diagram through search, nothing for the regular deck, but i'm assuming it's similar, minus the vid inputs/outputs?

i dunno how valid this is..got it from accordtuner.com....cause lookin at the colors....seems like the positive and the neg colors dont match....but maybe use this as a guide....again u should test it out. but just wire 4 set of regular 16g speaker wires, and 2 sets of rca wires from the front to back (along with the power, and remote on the oppisite side of the car)..and hook up the amp output to the according speakers in the stock wire harness(yes ur going to have to cut the stock up, unless u buy a new headunit....which i recomend)...and then put in line out converters and rca them up with the according slots on the amp...and your done.

ok i couldn't find an opening for the firewall so i ran thru the fender (just behind the mirror) and into the rubber cover by the door hinge. It looks a bit tacky but will do for now.
Can anyone possibly take a pic of where the wire is running thru.
