Yes, the din plug with the slide on connector goes to the amp. The white and black plastic plugs with two terminals go in the speaker outputs from the amp. As for that grey cable with the strange end on it, I can't tell well from the picture. I think you are thinking it is the power antenna power line, but it really looks more like a mangled antenna cable (not the power, but the frequency). Do you have the old radio? Look in it to see if there is part of an antenna cable stuck inside the old radio. No, looking at one of your earlier pictures I see it is a white wire with some sort of covering on it. Unusual. If that's the case (a single wire with a connector) it's to actuate the power antenna. The antenna gets +12V constant and switched +12V from when you turn the radio on. I think you have it sorted now, as long as you have a power wire for the radio... (which is usually a black wire coming out of the back corner of the radio, sometimes with a bullet shaped terminal on the end, sometimes with an in-line fuse, sometimes just bare. That gets connected to either switched +12V or constant +12V depending on whether or not you want the radio to always work or only when the key is turned.
