i found it best to ony use the power and dimmer control wiring in the rx and run proper audio cables to the speakers. i did that when i had a stereo in the rx. it sounded much better than on the stock wiring.

My recommendation is to wire fresh wire to the speaker connectors situated under the carpet by where the door harnesses terminate, usually a pink connector, to the back of the head unit, that way the door harnesses remain intact and you don't have a naked wire to pull through the door gromets..I also recommend drawing power directly from the battery to the head unit with a 15 amp fuse in line, then using the existing switched wire to the units ignition inputs, usually a blue wire with a yellow stripe..
just my two cents..
