I don't have that amp but it sounds like you can run another Amp off of it using the RCA's

The 350.4 is a four channel amp so amp1 if for channels 1&2 and amp2 is for channels 3&4. So if you have a head unit with two pairs of outputs, one for the fronts and one of the rears, then you can connect them to amp1 and amp2 on your kicker so that you can fade from front to back from your head unit.

Check the back of the radio or your owners manual. I think those short RCA's, that you spoke of, are for the subwoofer. Is the amp you are talking about a Kicker? If you use the RCA inputs 1 & 2, only, the amp will operate all four channels, Front ,Left, Right. If you use channels 1 & 2, and 2 & 4, then you can throw the rear in the mix. I have the MX700.5 amp and changed out the head unit. I used a multiple RCA input Kenwood head unit. Also, if I remember correctly, my two short RCA plugs are for the sub input. I would check you book.

It will have 1 set of pre built in RCAs and the little one on the wire is a normal set of RCAs. There is a sub-woofer control on your deck and these ones hanging off can be used for that but basically its just 2 normal sets of RCAs.
The kicker amps have a nice feature in that whether you plug the RCA into amp 1 or amp 2 it will control all 4 channels. You wont get a fade front to back option. You only need 1 set of RCAs to run the amp though. You can use the set on the wire to power your second amp if needed.
Out puts on an amp mean it can be used to send signals to other amps.
My Exile amps have Outputs and all that is..i can run an RCA cable from my Amp1 to Amp2 and Amp2 will think its coming from the head unit. Now remember if you fade Amp1 and Amp2 is receiving signal from Amp1 then Amp2 will fade the same as Amp1.Malo <--- Means--Evil or Mean One. This explains a lot.

The extra pair is for the rear channel or you can select SUBW in the menu and use them for that.My Mom said I'm not allowed to get wet!
