    Well,

    I don't have an actual website... but I can walk you through the install.

    You need to run another set of RCA's from your HU to the other two channels on the amp. Assuming the amplifier is located in your trunk or hatch, just run new speaker lines to the rear speakers. Use no larger than 10ga. Thats pretty much it, you may want to futz with the settings to determine what sounds best. Let us know if you need anything else.




    Don't PM me, I'm not here. Find me on SSA or ROE
    No, I won't re-upload the Big3 pictures. Don't ask.

    thanks, for some reason i didnt think i had to go back into the HU...i thought i caould run new wires from the amp directly to the spaekers, since the amp is already hooked up to a pre-existing set of components..

    You can use a "Y" adapter on the RCA's to give input to channels 3 and 4 if that is neccessary. Some multi channel amps can run on one set of RCA's. This might lower your input signal voltage which you can make up for on the amp's input sensitivity.
