Which Remote Wire to use

I did a search to no avail. But I'm in the middle of installing my new pioneer dvd HU. Car still has the stock sub/amp for now so I have the premium scosche wiring harness (the main wire harness and the small wire harness). I have the resistor I read that I needed to tap onto my ground wire to prevent the sub "pop"...BUT...getting ready to hook everything up and I have 3 factory amp remote wires in the scosche harness.

I have one remote wire coming out of the HU...not a problem

Main scosche harness has 1 remote wire - BLUE

Small scosche harness has 2 remote wires - BLUE/WHITE

Which remote wire do i use? Do I just splice all the together with the 1 remote wire coming off of the headunit? And with all these remote wires everywhere...where do I put the resistor?

Any help would be greatly appreciated...thanks guys.

Nevermind, I finally got a hold of scosche and they said just to wire all the remotes together. So I guess We will see how that works!

Alright, will do. I need to pull it back apart to put sat. radio in and I'll snag some pictures then. Was a bit of trial and error because instead of just using the stock sub/amp, or just doing the pioneer parking brake bypass, I did both so I'll grab some pics on my next days off.
