If i remember rightly you should be able to wire the rear speaker cable into the back of the headunit and run it to the back and connect it that way. (i believe that is right as it has been a while since i fitted any speakers)

I am sure this is what we did in all our cars a few years ago, we ran the cable underneath the plastic coverings around the door so that it was protected and out of the way.

Once you've ran it down you can then put your connectors on the end of the cable and connect your speakers up.

Is there 4 outputs on the back of the headunit? 2 for the front wires and 2 for the back wires?

Wire in on a seperate channel on your amp. I never buy amplifiers with less than 4 channels so i can run 2 subs and 2 6x9's off the same amp.

Mind you my last setup in volved 2 15" subs, " 6x9's and 3 4 channel amps.

Here's some of it.

Yeah ok mate no problem, you could run your speakers through your amp and that way you may get a better sound.

Will have to come see your set up sometime and hear the sound, i come to stafford quite alot.
