    Hook the sub amp into the sub out put and the 4 channel into the other,, should be labeled front and rear. Then match those to the amps. Simple

    You need to get a dual amp wiring kit, or if your power and ground wire is large enough already you need a distro block for power and ground

    How much wattage total(RMS wattage) what guage power/ground wire do you have? Cheap stuff or good stuff makes a big difference also
