    Don't try rigging 6 wires to a HU. You probably have 4 ohm speakers, and there is no safe way to do this that will get you decent sound and not overheat the HU (I know it's possible so don't go yelling at me about wiring them in series, people.)

    Save up for an amp. It will sound better than the HU too. Look for them in the classifieds. Just ask for refs first. Better safe than getting ripped off by a scum bag.

    im assuming you have a 2000 accord because of your screen name. so you bascially have tweeters in the dash, front speakers in the doors and rear speakers in the deck. all you need to do is wire up those 4 wires. the tweets in the dash and front door speakers are already wired together.
