So If I am to connect the Subs to the Rear Channel I will have to do some cutting & splicing..right?

The Alpine is connected to the front head unit feed only. The rear speakers stay driven from the rear output of the head unit.

As the amp doesn't need a high level to drive it, you can split the front channel from the head unit to feed the front and back inputs of the amp. This allows you to drive the subs from the rear channels and the door pairs from the front channels.

If you want to amp the rears then a separate amp is needed, or a 5 channel amp (with the 5th channel driving the subs).
