    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.

            What kind of car is it? Does it have a stock amplifier already?

                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.

                      looks to me like that amp can take high level inputs directly. Why would you need a line converter?

                        Cause there's a chance the deck does not have RCAs on it. It's cool having an amp and all but if it isn't getting an audio signal all it can do is chill.

                          From the high-res image I have seen of that amp, it appears to have standards speaker inputs as well as RCA inputs.

                          I may be mistaken though. The angle was funny.

                            I see what you are saying, but unless you mean something totally weird that I don't know about you are missing my point. How do you get a signal to the amp? From the deck. If the deck does not have RCAs how is one supposed to connect it to the amp? You have to add RCAs.
