it is a 2000 toyota celica gt-s. im not sure what system is in it now. i just know there are two tweeters and four speakers (front n back). plus my camera exits no longer...lost it on a coaster this saterday at six flags on the king da ka....awsome ride by the way....anyways....yeah...so i read another thread and it was saying i had to bypass the amp and my question now is use the two plugs that normally would go into the amp as my wiring harness for my dvd player just gotta have longer wires???? the link for this thread is: .... http://www.celicahobby.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/topics/79333/GT-S-Stereo-Install-How-To-Pix.html .... to clarify im trying to figure out if my dvd player wire harness and these harnesses from the stock amp is what i need to connect together....?

Yes, I did an install on a 99 Celica with amp. You must follow the cable that connected to the stock radio and disconnect the amp from the car then the wires that the amp are plugged into will reach the dash cavity.
The install was a pain, had to remove driver and passenger under dash panels to be able to get to the amp IIRC.

You can either bypass the stock amplifier, I can't find a thread on it right now and I think Luni may have written one, or you can get this: http://www.crutchfield.com/p_120708113/Toyota-Receiver-Wiring-Harness.html?tp=2977

I went through this about a year ago. There is nothing here about doing it, but newcelica has a lot of information on it. For what it's worth I got the harness babybear linked, and other than a little alternator whine (which newcelica has a fix for, but one project car at a time) it works great and saved a lot of hassle of bypassing, especially on the '00-'02 premium systems. Be aware that AFAIK there is no bypass harness, you either use the amp or splice to bypass.
