Question need help with wiring!!!!!!

Ok so i have a cd player i've been wanting to install, never done it before but seen diagrams and have done tons of other types of wiring/splicing the whole shebang. But why is there 2 plug-ins on the back of my stock radio/tape player?

i'll take some pictures, i had all the wires ready to be tapped and took the stock radio out and found 2 harnesses connected... idk where to go from there. also seems like i have to cut and splice right inside the bezel itself

you need an aftermarket radio adapter. it plugs right into the two harnesses and only costs like 10-20 bucks this way you can always take out the radio and go back to stock and you wont have a ****ed wiring harness

Def the best option and more solid than using taps on the stock wires.
