I'm a stereo installation newb with a setup question. Things should be mostly straightforward, but I do have one question about the rear speakers. I was contemplating just leaving the rears unpowered but I'd like to have some rear fill, especially for back seat passengers.
What I was thinking is to leave the rears powered by the HU and power the fronts with the amp. However, the HU only has one set of switchable pre-outs that I'm going to leave on "rear" to send a full-range signal to an EQ. Will this cause the HU to stop sending a signal to the rear speakers? If so, would it be okay to simply wire the rears to the front output on the HU? Is there a better way I could handle this?
In case it is salient, here's what I'm working with (in a 95' Civic):
Sony CDX-GT130 (1 set pre-outs, switchable rear/sub)
Alpine MRP-F240 4-channel amp (will bridge 2 channels to power sub)
1 soon-to-be-purchased inexpensive EQ (probably Lanzar Vibe 440PSU)
Front: Pioneer TS-A1374R 5-1/4" 3-way
Sub: 1 Rockford Fosgate Prime R1S410 (0.7ft^3 enclosure)
