VT = Violet (+)
YF = Yellow (-)
GN-VT = Green w/Violet stripe (+)
GY = Gray (-)

would be nice if the amp had another output channel (does it?) so I could wire my other sub directly to the amp without splicing into existing connections but I have to give this car back in 2 years and I'm not going to spend a lot of time+energy on an upgrade to the amp.
Nice, +1 for you! I'll have to see if I can find them in my car and use them for the sub instead of the current way that I'm tapped into the main 4 channels.
