I need my HU to run to my 4 interior speakers, as well as a sub. I looked at the rear view pic of this HU and noticed under the Preamp Outputs it says 'AUX/ REAR/SUB FRONT' I'm not entirely sure what this means as I'm totally new and trying to learn at this stuff. But do those marking offer any indication as to if this HU will output to my left/right front, left/right rear/ and subs?

It says "rear/sub", which means you can use that output for either, but not both at the same time.

That's annoying, I was really in love with this HU. Glad I decided to ask before purchasing. Back to the drawing board I guess.

I looked at that one before, the reason I didn't go for it is because it's so new, I couldn't really find many consumer reviews on it, and what I did find was about the Smartphone links, which doesn't apply to my use at all nor was I impressed with.

I think this would work. It's also new with not many reviews, but it's alot cheaper so might be worth a try. It says it has preouts for Front, Rear, and Mono-Subwoofer. But that's now concerns me because of the fact that I have 2 subs.
