IME, those do not work well. You CANNOT connect speaker outputs directly to preamp connections on the amplifier. Well, you can, but you will likely damage the radio and/or amplifier. It definitely will not work properly.

What model radio are you attempting to install?
Hi, I have a similar situation as well. To clarify here, To bypass the factory amp, will i have to run totally separate (new) wires direct to the speakers? thanks
