Default Stereo Install

I purchased a new head unit and need some basic 101 on how to wire correctly with the amp I have, I am pretty mechanically inclined EXPECT for stereo wiring, I am clueless.
Head Unit is a Fusion RA205
Amp is a JL 600/6
Subwoofer is a JBL
(2) Jl MX770
(2) JL650
(2) Fusion 4" above the console
Head has a (2) RCA jacks for sub- do I use these to connect the subwoofer?
Head has (2) RCA Jacks for Amp- Do I just connect these to channel 1/2?
If I do that do a change the selector to 2 channel?


I am confused on what the other 4 inputs on the sub are for?
I currently have all (3) sets of speakers connected to the 6 output channels on the amp






Thanks Pete (formely noboatpete)

ttt,


Mainly want to know if I hook the sub up to the RCA jack on the head or line 5/6 on the Amp and if I only run 2 wires from the Sub RCA on the head to the amp or do I split the two lines into 4 or 6 wires going into 1/2 and 3/4 on the amp?

So, you have one pair of RCAs leaving the Fusion (Red and White), splitting into 4 so you can plug them into Channel 1/2 and Channel 3/4 on the amp?

Then, you have the other pair of RCAs leaving the Fusion (Orange and Orange), and plugging them into Channel 5/6 on the amp?

On my old head unit I had (1) pair of RCA leaving the head and splitting into the 6 inputs on the amp and the 6 speakers wired into the 6 outputs on the amp, the Sub was wired into the RCA outputs on the head unit.


Right now I haven't wired anything because I doubt the old way was correct.


thanks for your help
