 Outputs on h/u. Help

Ok here's the deal. I have two amps. A mono, and a four channel. The four channel amp requires two sets out inputs to get signal to all four channels. It has a set of outputs on it. My mono amp only has 1 set of inputs, no outputs. So pretty much, i guess i have to run two rca's to the four channel, and out of it to the mono. Will i be losing any sound or voltage doing this. That's what the audio shop told me. Also my h/u is a pioneer dehP5800. It says it has three pre amp outputs on it. Would it be better to just run three sets of rca's to the amps, or just two, and one off the 4 channel to the mono? Please excuse my ignorance, but this is why i'm asking. To find out. Thanks.  p.s. The audio shop tried to talk me in to buying a line driver. They said it would make the amps a lot louder, without hurting them. Is this true?

Ok  most Pioneer HU's have 3 sets of out puts, two for the front,two for the rear and two for the sub amps. So what you do is on pair of rca's from the rca frount output of the hu to the front rca input of the 4ch amp,the second rca cable runs from the rear rca output to the second set of rca inputs of the amp, the third rca cable runs from the rca sub out to the input rca of the mono block amp. no you will not be losing any voltage the hu is set up for this.

I did exactly like you told me, and all sounds good execpt for channels 3 & 4 on my amp. I've got them getting signal from the "rear" output of the h/u. I can swap the RCAs around to where it sounds good from the "front" output, but anything being signaled from the rear output sounds screechy, high pitched, and just flat out bad. What options do I have now? I'm frustrated!!

Ok, got my h/u problem taken care of. Only thing that i'm confused with now is the SW subwoofer controls on the h/u.  I had been just running the sub rcas from the regular rca output. Now i'm using the sub output. And on the screen you can put it on 50.80, or 120 hz. What does this mean. I have it on 120 cause it's the loudest. Also it says "sub" and you can increase or decrease up to 6 or negative 6. Would 0 be ideal for no distortion. It sounds friggen sweet when i turn the sub up to 4 or 5 on the screen, but i don't want my amp to struggle. I could care less about the sub i have. Any advice?

alright the 50,80, and 120 numbers are low pass filter settings that ur h/u has built in. 80 would be a general good setting. as for the 0 to 6 thing, that it subwoofer level. in other words, the same kinda thing as treble and bass adjustments. it does act as output gain though so don't crank on it. maybe 2 or so to be safe. also, just to make sure, have ur gains on ur sub amp set right to make sure ur gettin the most out of it

the 50hz setting is best for songs with more bass, the 120 setting is for songs with less bass eg. 50hz for lil wayne and 120 for michael jackson, i have that option on my unit but it doesnt make way too much diff, mostly suttle
