Default subw amp install ?

I am going to connect my subw amp input ( hi level ) to the disconnected rear speaker wires. This way I can adjust my subw amp volume with my radio fader control. Is this the correct way to connect or should I parallel connect to the rear speakers ?

That would be the correct way. Do not parallel the rear outputs, because you will blow up the headunit. The 2 channels would be shorted to each other, and whatever signal difference there would be between them would result in a big current, which would fry the head unit outputs.
