You need the amp to power the subwoofer. If your intending to hook "all" meaning 4 full range speakers in the car to the amp also it is pretty impratical. You need to use a passive crossover which at a proper crossover point is basically a waste of money. Hook them up to the deck for now and use a amp later. Your

RCA's are line level and are never intended to power speakers themselves and doing so will likely damage your amp.
