    Default Taking out an amp...

    First off let me say I am somewhat ignorant about car audio installation. I usually do simple stuff like putting in new speakers or hooking up subs but leave wiring and amp installation alone and pay the pros to do it. So my question is this...

    I will be selling my truck soon, a 98 Frontier with a Pioneer deck, Infinity 6.5" components, Infinity 10" sub and an MB Quart 4 channel amp. So I want to take out the amp before I sell the truck, and want to know will it be difficult to hook up the components straight to the deck like they were before? How would I go about doing that, in a nutshell? Should I just say screw it and pay someone or is it so simple that Id be silly not to do it myself? Any help would be appreciated, thank you :)

    the amp uninstall is extremely easy. Take out the fuse under the hood and simply disconnect the wires. All the wires can be left in there and just tucked under the carpet or something.

    As far as hooking up the speakers back to the radio, it depends on how the radio was bypassed in the first place. My shop would charge $65 for something like that and it would take me about 30 minutes or so. I did that yesterday as a matter of fact. If you can pull the radio out, look behind it and see if they tagged the speaker wires right there, if so, you can just cut the speaker wires that go out(the non factory ones) and match colors to put the factory wires back together.

    If they spliced into the factory wires behind the head unit, all youd have to do is match up the wires with each other as theyre color coded.
