Here is the map to the OEM radio wiring. Look at the colours under the "Speaker" heading - ignore "shelf" and "sub" - I added those speakers.

I realize this is a pretty old thread, but a bump for a really nicely done how-to thread...

I was searching for some ideas on amp mounting and wiring for my setup [ipad mini / pioneer head unit / polk speakers, documented here]

The only thing I'm not completely comfortable with is drilling the sheetmetal for the amp board. I'd much prefer to use factory bolt locations, but it doesn't seem like they are in good spots. If I do drill, I was thinking of installing rivnuts just in the sheet metal instead of through bolts. Would eliminate that grinding/sealing you had to do on your mounting bolts.

Thanks for the ideas and good documentation!

Where did you get the AMP mounting spacers?

They are black rubber stoppers found at home improvement stores. Example: http://www.homedepot.com/p/t/1003386...7#.UVOfM1fux-Q

Good call! I wish I would have known of such fasteners several years ago. I may just swap those out one day. Putting link here for future reference...

BTW, congrats on your iPad mini install! Impressive!

Thanks! It was fun putting the iPad in, but an additional amp is next on the list...

On the rivnuts (aka nutserts, threaded inserts, rivet nuts), I'd suggest aluminum ones for light duty applications like mounting an amp. The steel rivnuts need a much beefier (and much more expensive) tool to install properly.
