The third plug is the substitute for RCA and remote wires for the factory gear. Once you have installed your aftermarket head unit, you can simply tuck that harness out of the way.

Alternatively you can use your factory sub/amp with your aftermarket head unit, there is a great how to with pictures in the audio forums.

You'll get way more help in the audio section, this shouldn't be here.

the audiophile system is just a better stereo from the factory comes with the controles and the sub and better door speakers

its your car you can rip out anything you want. basically you install a stereo just like you do in a 83 civic. There is adapters to hook the factory steering wheel controles into aftermarket decks (see the links on my signature for more information about all this) you dont need to have the stereo in the car to have the car operate normally.
