Two 4 Channel Amps 3 pre-outs on deck

My Alpine deck has three pre-outs, one pair front, one pair rear, one pair sub. I have two 4 channel amps. How do I get a signal to all inputs? Do I use these?
http://www.knukonceptz.com/productDe...rodID=KLA-1F2M

Deck: Alpine CDA-9813
Amp 1: Soundstream Rubicon RUB600-4. 4x80 watts @ 4 ohms
Amp 2: Elemental Designs NINe.4. 4x65 watts @ 4 ohms
Rear Door Speakers: JL Audio 6W0 4 ohm. I plan to run these in stereo due to the fact they only handle 75 Watts each. I will run these off the Soundstream Amp.
Sub: JL Audio 10W0-4 in a bandpass box. I plan to bridge the other two channels on the Soundstream amp.
Front doors: Polk components. I will run these with the ED amp.
Front Kick panels: Soundstream Exact 5.2. ED amp.

yes that is what you use to split the signals.

Why not use 2 of the preout and run 2 sets of RCA's? Thats the proper way of doing it, the 3rd preset is for a subwoofer!

That is what I was planning on doing. Do I have to split the RCA for the sub to have inputs for all 4 channels on the Soundstream amp? Or does the amp have an option to run all 4 channels from one RCA input?

no you need to run 2 seperate rcas to it. as i the wiring ways for a 4 channel is 4 channels 3 channels or 2 channels. not mono. you want are wanting to run the nine.4 as a 2 channel. and the soundstream as a 3 channel so the jl's are your midbass on channel 1 and 2 and channel 3 is run the the jl 10w0. thats the only way you can wire it. thats is how i have always wired that kind of setup.
