Default Amp Wiring Problem/Question. (Kinda Long but NEED Help!)

Currently I'm in the process of planning out a system to power my front and rear speakers. Currently I have the Alpine 9827 head unit, with front and rear Alpine speakers, as well as the Alpine MRP-F240 4-channel Amp on the way. I had planned on running 2 RCA Cables from the 2 pre-outs in the head unit to the 4 Channel amp, but today i found a small 2 channel sony amp that would be perfect for running my front speakers with. This would allow me to bridge my 4-Channel amp and use that to power the rear speakers with more power.

Now for my question. Can I run only one RCA cable to the 4-Channel Amp and still be able to bridge the amp successfully? When Looking at the Amp, it seems as if one RCA Input is for the front speakers, and the other is for the back speakers. Do I need Both Front and Back inputs to bridge the amp just for powering the rear speakers?

I hope you understand my confusion. Thanks for reading

Joe

What you need to do is buy rca splitters , it plugs in and you get two leads ,, this way you can run 2 rca right and left to both amps.

thanks for the quick reply! Will these splitters cause any losses in performance?

You wont need to run RCA'* to the front plug in on the amp. Curious to know how come your going to get a second amp for the front speakers. You could just run one amp. Just bridge the rear sp[eakers or run them in parallel
