distribution block for your power wire and another set of rca's for the new amp. since you already have one set up it should be a pretty easy job.

you will need to run rca's from the bak of the deck to the new amp, get a distroblock for the power and ground wires, and either a relay or just splice the remote wires together. splicing 2-3 remote wires will work, but any more than that you really need a relay. get a relay if can spare the extra few $ to do it the good way

yeah that one would work but really all you need is 1 in 2 out. as far as the ground goes you don't have to use one but if you already have a solid ground then it would make things easier.

all you need is 1 in 2 out distro like was said before. if you don't get 2 you will need to run 2 grounds to the car. with the distro, jsut run both ground from the amp to the distro block and hook up the current ground to the car to the distro block. as far as rca's go yeah you can get any male to male rca's but try to avoid going real cheap. you buy cheap you get cheap

mite as well grab u some speaker wire too, im not sure if u said u were going with a 4 ch or 2 ch for you 6x9's, but if your doing all 4 your probably gonna have to run your speaker wire from the amp to the back of your head unit to tie into your existing wires.. a$suming your not gonna run new wires and your car doesn't have a factory amp.. etc....

HUH? Why would you run wires from the amp back to the headunit? Just wire the speakers up directly from the amp....

When you get a distro block make sure it takes at least 4 awg in and 4 awg out....

thats retarted. all he needs to do is run the rca's from the deck to the amp and then run the speaker wires from the amp(already in the trunk) to the rear deck. running all that up front is a waste of wire, time and will not work nearly as well
