    I dont think I've known an automotive use for a surge protector. What are you using that for?

    If your amp as high level inputs, then you can just input the corresponding speaker lines into the amp. If your amp does not have hight level inputs and only uses RCAs, then you must convert it to low level inputs with the use of a line out converter (LOC).

    Drive to the nearest shop that offers car audio installation. Hand over your keys, and open your wallet. Because it appears that you might be in over your head. With limited skill level, knowledge, and understanding of what you need to accomplish, you might end up causing more damage than good. As a result you may end up paying more than double what you had hoped just to fix your mistakes.

    And please dont double post, It's annoying.

    lmao at surge protector. I really hope you aren't talking about a spike bar or something haha.

    A FUSE is what protects your stuff from surges..they are made to blow.

    And yes, go read a lot more about installs. You need to educate yourself way beyond the scope of your question posed here.

    Line output converter, wired to your rear speakers. This is the short answer.
