i dont have any pics but i did on the unit i just stripped about 1 inch of wire and wrapped it around just one of the 4 channel RCAs and stripped some and wrapped it around a screw. it worked and i wrapped it in electrical tape. and for the amp i took the wire and wrapped it around the rca jacks on the amp and plugged them in and used the grounds that the amp is on.
