Default how to bypass factory amp?

hey all. my new to me 99 PA has the factory 9 speaker system. i replaced the rear deck speakers because they were rattling with some alpines, only to find out the rear deck only gets bass, thanks to the amp!


i have my own subwoofers and dont need the cheesy amp for those speakers. its got a connector identical to the one on the stereo. any ideas on how to bypass the amp without running wires to the speakers direct from my HU? i found this tutorial for an impala, but im not sure my wiring is the same as my amp only has the one connector. thanks alot!!!

cars that dont have aftermarket support, you have to connect the wires you hooked the hu to to the ones you have your speakers connected to. you have aftermarket ones in the front? to me it was easier and better just to use an aftermarket amp and run new separate wires and rca'*. the only stock wiring i used is key on power and ground
