I know that the stock CD6 doesn't have any RCA jacks or anything like that.

+1.

i tapped into the rear speaker wires to run into the "high level inputs" on my amp. it works good but not nearly as good as the RCA cables. i would recommend doing what Ranger02_4x4 said but also run 2 amps one for the rear speakers and one for the subs.

you need to go to an electronics store that has car audio stuff, for example: Radio Shack, Circuit City, Best Buy, Ovation, and get a line output converter. it converts speaker level inputs to an RCA output. Then you plug your RCA cables into the converter and then run the RCA cable to your amp.

you can just tap into the speaker wire that attaches to the rear speaker. you don't need to soder anything just get a couple of butt connectors and tie them together.
