    Icon32 how can i run 4 speakers and a sub with only 2 sets of pre amp outputs?

    my headunit only has two sets (total of 4) of amp outputs.

    the problem is that i have a 4 channel amp for the fronts / rears and then a seperate amp for the sub.

    so how do i make this work?

    depends what you have is it a switchable rear/sub rca out on the deck and a front pair too? what is your amp? my alpine wants a front and rear output but has a selector that allows me to steal signal from channels 1/2 and share it with 3/4. or you can get a y adapter for the four channel and then run the other set to your sub amp.

    hes right that will work also only if your amp has an output rca on it i know alot of cheaper amps don't then you would have to go with the y adapter to splice your front rca's into 2 rca's hope this helps man
