Default Aftermarket amp to stock radio

Hey guys, i'm hooking up a sony xplode amp and speaker to the stock radio in my 2007 PT Cruiser Limited Edition. Just wondering if the radio has the audio jacks and blue remote wire already there or if I need an adapter for the radio.

I've got a lot of experience with the oval-face stereo heads for the 1st gen PT. And I've pulled some stereo heads on some 2nd Gen PT's while looking for other components. I am fairly certain that there is a power antenna wire that can be used to trigger a relay for an amp. You will have to use a wiring diagram to find because it is likely not blue. Also, make sure your amp does not pull much current over that wire and that it is only a relay trigger and not the primary power supply to the amp.

Also, the ones I've looked at do not have RCA outputs. You will likely need an adapter unless you use an "old school" amp that accepts line-level inputs.
