You will only be able to use this EQ on the front or the rear speakers. You will have to get another EQ if you think you need one. Usually, the front speakers of a car's audio system are the smallest and the rears are larger. You really do not want an EQ on the subs. If it was mine, I would hook the EQ between the head unit and the rear speakers. If you feel this does not sound right, you may need, but I doubt it very much, to get another EQ for the front speakers. Good Luck
first check to see that the fader is not programmed to the front speakers fading it rear might solve your problem, second if your stereo has a 4 ohm load requirement at the output and your new speakers are 8 ohms this will cut the power output in half, your best bet is to get an amp if these do not solve the problem.
There are 3 sets of these. The ones with thinner wire are for high level input (from a stereo's speaker outputs). The two other thick sets are the speaker outputs to front and rear. They should've been attached to connectors labeled front and rear, if they aren't, you gotta find out through trial and error with the fader. Lastly, black is for ground of course, then the thin red wire is for 12V+ power (on with ignition), and the thicker red wire is power output to a deck, if you want it to turn on along with the amp/eq.
The "Front output" from the Pioneer deck would connect to the "Main In" on the Clarion EQ. I'm assuming that your Clarion EQ can only deal with one input, and will send the adjusted (equalized) signal out both of the outputs. The "Front output" from the Clarion EQ should go to the "Front Input" on the 4 channel amp. The "Rear output" from the Clarion EQ should go to the "Rear Input" on the 4 channel amp. The "Sub output" from the Pioneer deck would connect to the Left/Right Input on the Epicenter. The Left/Right Output on the Epicenter would need a Y-splitter for each side, so that you could connect each amp separately. One suggestion would be to use one sub amp for both subs.
run two 6x8s on each of the front channels of the amp. then depending on the sub you can bridge it on the rear channels.only if its a single four ohm. if its a dual 2 ohm sub run each coil on each channel. 1 coil-1channel. the other coil-the other channel. amp should run fine may run a little hot since it will be doing all it can do at a safe ohm load. just make sure it is mounted in a well vented area. should be safe.
