    I got a 2005 Tacoma. A friend gave me this Amp for my truck (attached below) It didn’t come with any wires so what wires do I have to buy? How does it wire to the radio (I have aftermarket radio) and will it work with stock speakers or do I have to buy news ones to see an improvement? I know this is a mouthful but I appreciate it!

    You'll need battery and ground wire. 4 gauge at the least. Make sure battery has an inline fuse holder.

    RCA cables. Those run from head unit to amp (the amp 1 and/or amp 2 part on yours).

    Speaker wire. This runs from the L and R positive/negative terminals to your speakers.

    You'll explode the stock speakers in no time so yes new speakers needed.

    before you get busy buying all sorts of stuff I would test it and make sure it functions. Hook up the power, ground, and remote wire and make sure the PRT light does NOT come on.

    You might also want to hop on youtube and do some research. this is a good channel https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=03JqBnBaiYk

    dont forget your remote wire from the head unit to the amp so that it turns on with your head unit.
