Found an OEM amp for super cheap. I have base audio, obviously it will mount up and from what I see on HMA, the connector arrangement between the base and premium radios is the same.

Are the connections already there or did Hyundai run two different body wiring harnesses?

Its ok, nothing special for sure. If you are going to drive a larger than 8" sub i would get something else along with a DSP (digital sound processor).

Yes, long term it would be replaced with something proper. The biggest concern are if the plug-ins are back there for the amp in the passenger corner of the base audio setup.

No RCA's on the factory headunit.
The OEM amp doesn't have RCAs. My question is are the two connectors for the factory amp present in the base audio setup?

No i believe those will get hooked up via speaker wires and a converter is how that is handled even if the amp has RCA's the Head unit doesn't which is the reason they use the converter. Im not a electrical guy mind you but i am fairly sure after having mine done not more than 2 weeks ago that it was how it was done.

I have a 2012 R-Spec, therefore base audio like yours and no harness or connectors were preinstalled by HMA. I added an Alpine V60 5 channel amp in the same spot, using speaker inputs. I also upgraded my speakers to Alpines.
