I just bought an 91 E34 M5 that had an aftermarket stereo in it which had been removed. I was given the stock head unit, but there doesnt appear to be an amp in the car.

My question: What color wires go to the GND, IGN, and PWR ANT connectors on the radio? Also how do the speaker wires run? Do the 4 output channels go to the amp and from there to all the speakers ?

btw- when I power up the head unit with +12v on ign and (-) on gnd I get NO display. Does this mean the head unit is broken? or do those other wires NEED to be connected?
