All three circled ones are steering wheel controls? I thought at least one of those connections had to do with an OEM amp.

Clean 4th gen: Yes I have an SL radio. Ive had it since march. Ive always wanted a cd changer, and wanted to keep the OEM look, so I got this one for $100 from a salvaged versa SL on ebay. I bought 4 2-way infinity speakers, boston accutics 5-channel amp, and a 8" kicker sub, and intergrated the factory radio with the amp. My amp has speaker wire inputs, so its real easy to intergrate without a line out converter, and deal with all that crap. I bought 2 radio plug harnesses. One to plug into radio and one to plug into car wiring, which now leaves open wires. The power connections are made from car wiring to head unit, once u do that, all thats left is the speaker connections from the headunit. So then I bought 2 JL audio 9-speed connector wires. One goes from radio's harness to amp speaker input, and the other goes from amp output to the radio again, but only to connect it to the cars harness. So now I dont have to run wiring to all the doors, its using the factorys wiring. My speakers are only 50rms, so its ok. I dont know if that sounds confusing or not, but it took some time to think of it. Its what I wanted, nothing spectacular, loud, crazy. Just a simple 400RMS sound system. Heres my crappy drawing, but maybe u will understand it better, lol.

I'm not positive if all are. YOu should consult the factory service manual.

If you go with my setup, I would recommend an amp with speaker wire inputs like mine. Mine is a Boston acoustics GTA-1005, its a little expensive, but its really a great amp. Its a 5 channel. I think I paid $350, but I believe its come down some. Here's a great place to buy, http://www.sonicelectronix.com/. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate. I had to do some trial an error before I figure some things out. So I can help you in any way. Its a nice setup, and gets pretty loud, and for the average driver its really good, but I need a little more, but its still great. I would recommend a 10 or 12" sub though, but its still good.

Heres a link to what it sounds like. Well, its alot better in person. I was using my digital camera video button, but you can kinda get a feeling of what it could sound like. That was on level volume 17 out of 30.
