if it's an aftermarket CD player look for a blue wire with a yellow stripe. if it's stock you need to find the power antenna wire. most decks have 1 even if you don't have a power antenna.

What does sound travel through to get to the amplifier?

sound travels from your source, a.k.a. in dash CD player, thru a pre-amplifier (RCA output) and then thru the rca cables that you hook up to the back of your source to the amplifier. If you are not using the pre-amp from the stereo. (RCA outputs) you can use a high level output adapter, which you connect to the speaker leads from the bacck of your source unit. The high level aka speaker level adapter changes your speaker wires on the back of your CD player to RCA outputs. from the high level adapter you then run RCA cables to your amplifier. Some amplifiers have a high level adapter built into them, which does not require the use of an external speaker level adapter, and your speaker wires can run directly into the aftermarket amplifier.

Do you connect speakers to receiver or amplifier?

Depends on what your definition of "receiver" is, but most of the time - to the amplifier. Consider: if the receiver is some form of a device that receives some signal, and then decodes it to audio, then the receiver will hook into the amplifier, which in turn will drive the speakers (so the speakers go to the amplifier) if, on the other hand, the receiver is a part of a wireless connection between the amplifier and speaker, then it really serves the role of a cable, so in essence you're again connecting the speakers to an amplifier (only using the receiver as an intermediary) You would have to specify your case.

If you're meaning how to hook up an amplifier that uses RCA connectors and all you have is speaker wire, then what you need is a RCA High/Low Line Converter. Its a small box with 2 wire connectors and 2 rca connectors. They're very cheap, there are several on eBay for about $10 or about $20 in a local store. At the back of the CD player, just splice into the wiring harness and connect to your rear left and rear right speakers.
