    For the 4 channel amp?

    Need to run two sets of rca cables from the HU to the amp for the front and rear signals. Need to run 2 sets of speaker cable to the front as well so you can connect your front speakers up (you can splice them where they would usually connect in the area the HU sits) As far as the back speakers, you can run 2 new sets of wires for them since your amp will be back int hat area anyways, would be alot more efficent than running wires to the front just so they run to the back again.

    Then you need to splice off an 8gauge wire from our power distribution block in the trunk to your 4channel amp, and ground the amp either to a ground distribution block, or straight to the frame (best thing to do if not using a black is ground all equipment in the trunk to the same poiunt to kill the possibility of a ground loop). Also need to splice a P-ON (amp signal wire) from either the HU, or from the monoblobk amp which is connected to the HU already.

    "Take 2 1M to 2F RCA "Y" adapters. Chop the Male ends off. Strip back the outer insulation 1". Wrap the shield into a strand away from the center dielectric. Strip back the center dielectric 1/2". Now connect these directly to the wires below:

    (Note: Each - is across form each + in the plug)

    Right Front:
    B4, Blue + (center of RCA)
    B7 Red - (shield of RCA)

    Left Front:
    B1 Red/Blue + (center of RCA)
    B8 Yellow - (shield of RCA)

    Right Rear:
    B6 Lt Green + (center of RCA)

    On the speaker wire. Your going to run a new set of speaker wire to all 4 of your speakers (front and rear) from the amp to the speakers. You'll need to run them form the amp in the back up to the front for the front speakers. You can either run the new wires to the HU location and splice the new wires into the wires that go to the door speakers (the door speaker wires would usually be connected to the HU) or you can run the new wires straight to the door speakers themselves if you wish. The back speakers will be easier since they are in the same general location. You just need to run the new wiring from the amp to those speakers.

    On the HU: ""Take 2 1M to 2F RCA "Y" adapters. Chop the Male ends off...." is referring to those y splitters you can pick up at walmart, radioshack, or the likes. Ususally they have 1 male connection, and 2 female connector on the opposite end. They just want you to cut the male end off, and twist the shiedling (looks like braided wire, they use it as the ground wire) together to make a wire out of it, and then strip the colored wire from each female rca jack so you have bare wire. Then you will connect those to the pinout they gave you.
