5 channel amp install help

I like to think that I am pretty good at stereo install stuff but normally I gut and replace everything. I a have a 2013 with 430 "premium" stereo. I am replacing all speakers and using this amp to power everything Amazon.com: MRX-V70 - Alpine 4-Channel plus Mono Power Amplifier: Car Electronics

I am keeping the 430 for now. I need to know what and how to wire in the amp? The LC6i will only handle 400w. Thanks in advance

. Put the LCi6 after your factory amp (it is no where near 400 w RMS) then run RCA cables to your alpine wherever you put that.

I keep the below writeups in my shortcut list. I went with an Audiocontrol LCQ-1 since I wanted the built in equalizer. Pretty easy, splice the LOC unit into the corresponding wire from the fty amp harness. (the one with the black plug.)

The only problem here being that you're re-processing the signal, but without replacing the head unit I'd agree that there seems little alternative.

. That's the point right? Taking all 8 channels, summing them together, stripping out the processing with the LC8 and sending a flat signal to the amps. What I don't know is how well an LC8 sums and strips the bad processing out. Obviously a bit 10, or on the lower end a clean sweep will do that fairly well.
