There's probably only 2-3 amps at less than 8V running through those cables but that is just a bit too much to run the length of an SUV. If he used some 14-16 gauge speaker wire to tap into the signal behind the head unit then connected the RCAs to the 14-16ga at the amp there wouldn't be any problem with the current. Of course this is assuming he has everything connected correctly behind the head unit.
    If your familiar with it I'll bow out.

    9.5" Speaker-level input harness (with stereo RCA plugs on one end and bare wire on the other end)
    4 Self-tapping screws (length=3/4")

    Mine was. HU's have heat sink cases for a reason. Anyways, be sure of one thing after you are done cramming everything back in no
    matter what you do, make sure none of the wires are too close or against the head unit, the plastic could literally melt off your RCA'S...


    lmao

    "Confused" but still attempting to offer advice on something u clearly haven't a clue about...
    Weak, as always!

    Something like that should work. If you use the converter that came with the amp that should be the way 2 go. Go and get some proper wire connectors so it doesn't come undone. I kind of misunderstood the problem initially. I am not used to amps like that, it concerned me a lot I don't want people to have there stuff break...

    Good luck man!

    8awg is beyond overkill for this, 14-16awg is all you need. Connect one side behind the head unit then connect the "9.5" Speaker-level input harness" to the other end. Plug the RCA end into the amp and you should be all set.
