Man first of all let me tell you , You have enough equipment for small rock show !!!.
The Clarion EQ has only one set of inputs. In other words you won't be able to use the fader controls to adjust the front to back sound from the Kenwood unit. That should not be a problem if you are mounting the EQ in the dash.And also you will need an additional 4 channel Amp to power your 4 speakers other than your sub woofers.You will also need Capacitor Banks or your battery will be over loaded !!!
Connection are as follows
1) Connect the Kenwood Head unit RCA out ( either front or rear ) to the Clarion EQ Line In socket.
2) Connect the EQ Front & Rear out to the 4 channel Amplifiers 4 inputs. Connect 4 full range speakers to the out of the 4 channel Amp. Make sure the 4 channel Amp you buy is powerfull because your total sub output is very high. Unless you like only pounding bass with low level upper frequencies .
3) Connect the EQ''s Sub out to the Alpine M1000 Amp inputs. Left sub out to one mono block and Right out to the other mono block.Connect the two Alpine Sub Woofer ( 1223D ) to each of the mono blocks outputs.
4) Now from the Mono block Pre Amp out link a RCA cable to the Boston GT2 Amp inputs. One cable each from the 2 mono blocks to each of the Left & Right Boston inputs. This is called a loop through connection.You must have been wondering how to connect the second Sub Amp ?? Now in the bridged mode connect the SWR sub woofer to the Boston Amp output.
This should set you up for a concert level sound . Make sure you buy heavy gauge power cables for the Amps and don't run the system with out the car engine running !!! . Use Capacitor banks parallel to the Amp power cables. Red to the + of the Capacitor and Black to the - of the capacitor.Connect the capactiors using a short cable or as near as the Amplifier as possible.
Revert back for any further assistance. DRIVE SAFE and remember with this setup running you won't hear GODZILLA coming at 10 feet distance.
