Replacing GE weathertron thermostat with a Honeywell 6000

I am replacing a weathertron for a Honeywell 6000. The old terminals are R, W, T, B, X2, G, O, and Y. New terminals are L, Aux/E, G, O/B, C, Y, and R. I plan to connect R to R, Y to Y, B to C, O to O/B, G to G, and terminate the old T. That leaves me with the old W and X2. Assuming they are for Heat and emergency heat, where do I land them on the new thermostat? My system is an old GE heat pump with a plus 1 kit and a gas furnace. I figured W would go to Aux and X2 would go to E but there is only one terminal marked Aux/E

Easiest should be to put both wires in the aux/e terminal.

On the old stat..... X2 is emergency heat and W is the AUX heat.
Most systems the X2 and W are connected together at the air handler.

If you can't fit both wires in your new stat..... use just the W wire.
