One cannot connect speakers to RCA outs directly. There must be amp in between.

The HU has a small internal amp to drive 2 pairs of speakers. Go to any ICE installer in your city he will do it for you.

Yes i know.Without Amp we can't connect Speakers with HU

So every HU- Amp has 4 pairs of positive and Negative connectors.

A pair of +,- connector to run a Speaker.Am i right.

Hi. I was also in this state of confusion and did a lot of reading on the forum and asking questions.

your question is on connecting a sub.

you need a HU with minimum 2 pre-outs (not considering 1 pre-out HU and using y-splitters).
The RCA will run from the 2 pre-outs on the HU to the inputs on the amp. From the 4 channel amp, you can power either the front or the rear speaker (this uses 2 pairs of connectors).
The other 2 pairs will be bridged (eg +of left and -of right) and can be used to power the sub. THis very basically means that the output to 2 speakers is combined to power a sub.

Note: if it is a mono or a 2 channel amp, you can drive only a sub OR a pair of speakers (not a sub AND a pair of speakers)
