Gen 4 liberty

i have a new sony headunit and i would like to use the factory speaker wires to keep everything neat

is it a case of me cutting and soldering in the new HU or is there a harness/plug to go from sony HU to factory speaker wires,

If it's a Macintosh unit, you're in for extra work.
The connection from the head unit to the amp under the seat is a differential signal, which isn't compatible with most other head units.
So, you're going to have to run extra wires to run to the speaker wires under the seat.
