new radio need some 411

I need to know how to do this i want to learn...I got this new Sony CDX-F5705X it was dirt cheap and well i need to put it into my 2001 zx3. Any tips or tricks on how to do this?

I see that the wires in the back of the stereo are all different colours so do i just match them up and away i go? I also have 2 10's and an amp in the back that are running off of a switch so that i can turn the amp on and off when i want to. so do i still run the switch or use the sub presets that are in the deck.

If u guys and gals could send me a pic or two on how to do this it would be awesome....u guys have been there for me in the past and i'm hoping u can do it again.


thanks a bunch

Enzo

find someone local to help if not (i burned up 2 stereos when iwas 16 just winging it, $150 x 2 is lot of money at $5 an hour), they make a harness that you match up you stereo to pigtails on harness that simply plug in.
