If you have an HU-803 this is how you do it, other 6-pin din units I would assume are all the same but I don't promise anything.

1 - LF Audio
2 - RF Audio
3 - RR Audio
4 - Ground
5 - LR Audio
6 - control signal (remote on for amp)

They all share the common round. I bought a 6-pin din connector and some nice RCA ends from radio shack. Soldered everything up and made about a 6" pigtail. Then I used a monstercable RCA line with integrated remote wire to run to the trunk. I mounted my AMP on the underside of the trunk floor with some 10/24 carriage screws. The din connector should come numbered so it's easy to put together. Just make sure you use shielded wire, even in your pigtail. Some people use a ground-loop isolator to eliminate noise, but I didn't have any noise and saw no need. Just make sure that you disconnect the negative battery cable before you pull the head unit. If you remove the HVAC controls to give you more room to work (you will probably have to) without the battery disconnected you will get an airbag light/code when you start the car.
