the same way that you would wire your subs. no speaker wires to deck just to the amp. run rcas and wire speakers straight to amp. make sense haha?

I have a ritual called "terminator". I crouch in the shower in the "naked terminator" pose. With eyes closed I crouch for a minute and visualize either Arnie or the guy from the 2nd movie. I then start to hum the T2 theme. Slowly I rise to a standing position and open my eyes. It helps me get through my day. The only problem is if the shower curtain sticks to my terminator leg. It sorta ruins the fantasy.

The set up your talking about would sound great in my Tahoe. Trade you my dog for it. He has one eye but that only makes for bad depth perception so hey so what if he is running into shit, look at it this way he is easy to sneak up ninja style on. (right side only)

Hooking up a multi channel amp is the same as hooking up any other amp. You will obviously have your power, ground, remote. Youll have another set of RCAs from the HU to this new amp unless your other one has RCA outputs then just go from that amp to the new amp. The only thing that is different is the settings on the amp. And obviously your speaker wires to go your highs.

Don't feel bad, for years I didn't know how either. Just hook it up like a sub amp and run the wires to the speakers, you can find 4 channel RCA's, everything else is the same

no because your stereo is sendin filterd low notes out those rcas so if u plug those into your multi channel then try and filter the highs out of that signal its gonna sound horrible lol if your stereo doesnt have rca out puts just for the speakers your gonna have to do alot of cutting and rewiring. which means takin every speakerwire comin out the back of your headunit then cuttin it and wiring it up to a rca wire then pluggin it into your amp then runnin wire all the from the amp to your speakers.

are you talking about just running tweeters straight to the amp? if so be careful, you don't wanna blow your highs, most 4 channel amps only have up to 500hz hpf, which is very low. so you have to set up the hpf on the HU. but most of the cheap HU don't have it.
