kenwood hu 5210 amp question

Hello,

So I have the Kenwood DNX 5210 sitting waiting on an install, and know that there are only 2 RCA outs, Front and Rear/Sub. Is it possible to run the Front out to a 2 Channel Amp for the front speakers and the Rear/Sub to a Sub Amp AND use the HU amp for the rear speaker fill?

Reason being, I'd like to consider only running the front component set and a single sub as my main system and have the rear speakers as back fill if possible. If not I'll probably just run it to a 4 channel amp and run front and rear speakers...

It's in a DC SWB for reference. Any input would be greatly appreciated!

Rob

I do it like that all the time Rob so yes it will work and BTW the other goodie should drop in any time (I didn't realize being an "employee" put you at the bottom of the list in shipping priority!)

Awesome Marv! This will allow me room with the HU to add a sub in the future without having to upgrade my HU, trying to keep this as affordable as possible! I'm looking forward to my "goodie"...

Marv, another question, with the PDX 4.100, would it be possible to bridge the rear channels to power a small sub for expansion in the future, then use the HU to power the rear doors? Thanks!
