    What are the RCA cables for in the back of a multimedia head unit?

    I've been looking around for a good double din head unit, probably a pioneer avh series unit and I've seen that the back of it has the regular plug where I'm supposed to wire my harness and then there are female RCA cables. What am I supposed to do with those? I know I'm lame but I might get one to put in a 1997 Toyota camry or a 1999 Nissan quest

    External amplifiers (Front/Rear and maybe Sub) and there's probably another set for a backup camera or additional monitors.


    I know you didn't mention this, but the antenna will be the only other thing you plug in behind the unit besides the wire harness.

    So basically I don't do anything with those? I don't have additional speakers or such, just the factory speakers

    Correct, just leave them alone.
