    So I spent the weekend putting in new speakers and an amp to power everything. I ran new speaker wire (PITA!) and was wondering what should I do with the stock wires that are currently attached to my aftermarket radio? Should I just snip the ends and cap them off? Will it hurt to leave them attached to my radio? Probably a stupid question but I had to ask

    I would just unplug and leave it be so if you ever trade you can put back to stock.

    I think he just ran new wire! Are you running an Amp? If you are then you don't need to worry about the stock wiring just leave it alone.

    This. Tape the ends of the stock wire. It won't affect anything since there's no frequency going through the wire.
