Bit unsure on how i am suppose to connect my amp to the head unit.
On the back of the head unit it has 3 sets of outputs.

1. left and right.
2.left and right.
3. sw, which i would like is sub.

Which one do i connect the amp wires too?

oh man,, take it to someone that knows what they are doin. as it seems like your head unit has 3 pre-outs must cost $300 or so.

them left/right things are outputs that you run down to your amp with a rca cable.

1 and 2 are front and back and sw is subs.

Its as bit hard to tell you whats what when we cant see what the back of the head unit looks like, it could be left/right front speakers and left/right rear speakers, and just the sub out for the rca cables

Still doesn't help if we don't know which RCA output is which...before you blow a fuse and melt some wires, I suggest you take it to someone who knows what they are doing or at least have someone there to show you how to do it properly.

I suggest you refer to the wiring diagram that's supplied with the head unit to know which RCA Output is which. If you can't figure that out yourself, then definitely get someone who knows their stuff and get them to give you a hand.

Top is Rear
Middle is Front
Bottom is Subs

Red and white, Doesnt really matter for left or right, but you can always switch the cables at the amp if you get left and right mixed up.

But as a rule, where possile always connect with the same colour if the head unit and the amp have colour coding
