The amp has hookups for 2 subs, so could I use one of the hookups to power the front speakers, and the other for the sub?
if its a mono amp just use it for the subs....

Okay, but the components will sound ok running off of the head unit?

Eventually I'll get another amp to power the speakers

Are components any harder to hook up than regular speakers? Sorry for being such a n00b.

Last question, I promise.
