Default "Active Audio" amp

So last night i was cleaning out the car and noticed this AMP type of thing was hanging under the center console in a vent hole.... It was strange so i disconnected it, and noticed it said Active Audio on the back.. I tried the radio, and it is still amplified so obviously if it has something to do with the sound the only thing it does is amplify the subwoofers (which i previously removed to replace them with Infinity 6x9'*)

Now what i want to know is does anyone have an accurate wiring diagram for this? I'm curious to see what i could do with the stock system now. There is only one harness going into it so i'm assuming there are probably 8 in total for actual audio signals, ((2x2)x2) and the rest for power, switching, and the gain control... I dont want to wire an amp to a power lead though

Are the audio inputs on that thing preamp? Or are they amplified from the deck and just crossed over in the "Active Audio" thing...
