Z3 amp replacement

I recently purchased a 1997 Z3 roadster and I have been searching through the forums and have found a lot of members saying that the amp needs to be replaced. I purchased a set of polk DB component speakers for the kick panels and doors as well as a set of polk DB speakers for the back. I have also purchased a new amp to run the speakers. My question is how do you actually replace the AMP in the trunk. I also have a Pioneer Premier headunit that I installed on the car. Does anyone have a step by step guide on how to replace the amp with a new one. Thanks.

this has a pretty good wiring color chart for the wires feeding the speakers from the amp.

you're going to have to cut the old amp loose and wire the new one in.. you can mount your cross overs in the trunk near the amp and use the stock wires to them.


then run some new wires to the new amp.

was your stock system the Harmon Karden?

yeah the original system is the HK system. Thanks for the reply. I hope this isn't a project that is going to be overwhelming to take on. Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated by anyone, especially if there are any members out there that have done this already.
