    Baboo, as much as we would like to help you, most of the car stereo wiring information listed on our website is provided by our visitors. We currently do not have the 2000 Mercedes C280 AMG stereo wiring information but hopefully someone from our Modified Life community would be able to chime in and help you out. What we can tell you is that the 2000 Mercedes C280 AMG stereo does not have RCA outputs. You would have to install a line out converter to supply an audio output. Here is the Line-Out Converter you need:

    Scosche 2-Channel Speaker to RCA Line Out Converter

    When splicing in the RCA Line Out Converter, tap your factory rear speaker wires to get a full range audio source. We suggest you invest in some solid wire taps that wont come loose. These wire tap connectors will allow you to tap into wires without cutting and installs in seconds by hand with no crimping or tools required. If you’ve never installed car audio before, we advise you to take your car to an experienced mobile audio installer. Hope this helps. Good luck with your 2000 Mercedes C280 AMG amplifier installation.
