Have radio with front and back preamp outputs 2 VRMS. I have wired 2 front speakers 4 ohm units to regular radio FRONT L and R output wires, they work fine. What I am trying to accomplish is use the REAR preamp radio output RCA connects to a LEPY 12 volt mini hi fi amp using the RCA inputs. Cannot get radio sound through amp to back speakers, the back speakers are 8 ohm bookshelf types, nothing fancy with 14 gauge speaker wire from amp to speakers. The back speakers work fine when connecting directly to the radio rear speakers L and R output wires and bypass the amp. Can 1 channel of the radio preamp output for rear speakers and the normal output wires for FRONT be used at the same time? I do not use the rear radio normal output wires when trying to use the amp to drive the rear speakers. The receiver is a Dual brand, MCP1337BTS Digital Media Receiver. My gut says the LEPY Hi-fi amp is not designed to receive car radio preamp outputs as inputs for processing. This is for my boat.
