Looking for a wiring harness adaptor for the OEM Business CD; I'm going to run the OEM H/U signal to two Zapco amps, and would prefer to do minimal wire cutting and splicing. Thanks. R.

Nope. Don't need it. The Zapco amps accept differential balanced inputs and will take up to a (I think) 16V signal. No Ven-4 or anything required. Just have to connect the OEM wiring to the Symbilink cable, plug it into the amp, and you're good to go. Hence the need for a wiring harness adapter. R.

i dont think there are any adapters out there for that.

only adapters are for HU wiring harness that allows aftermarket decks to plug directly into the factory harness without splicing factory HU harness.

you are going to have to splice the wires in the trunk. If you dont want to splice, you can use "t" connectors.

Hmmm. Actually, I'll have to splice right behind the head unit, as I'm going to be running 4 Symbilink cables down the cabin and into the trunk (1 front channel, 1 rear channel, 1 sub channel, 1 remote boost controller for sub). Figures- *nothing* is ever easy. R.
