yes u can use most wires there unless come important thing you should get. These are the thing just come up in my head in the moment:
1) a relay for remote wire from radio come in and split out to stock amp and aftermwrket amp.
2) a monster cable for power from the baterry.
What that amp for? for a sub or for normal speakers? if it is a powerful amp for sub then u would need to get bigger speaker cable from that aftermarket amp to the sub. Oh, on the power cable from baterry to amp, you should have a fuse. The amperage (not sure if I spell right) rate should be followed by the amp. You have the amp manual do you?
That's all I can think of right now.

: I just bought an amp and the guy said I needed all this extra stuff to install it. I thought you could just take the speaker wire and attach them to the corresponding channel. And for the power wire, he said I have to have a new one installed from the battery, can't I just use all the wires from the factory amp? Everything is there that I need. Is he trying to rip me off. Whats a typical installation like, I thought I didn't have to modify anything. I need help. Thanks.
