The front speakers are connected directly to the front speakers (no
"booster" amp in the circuit). You can connect them directly to the front
channel of your Blaupunkt.  The rear speakers are connected through a
smaller "booster" amp bolted to the under side of the rear deck.  This amp
is not worth the power it would take to blow it to h*ll!  In fact, there is
only one real problem with this amp....because its so light, it is
difficult throw it very far.  Bypass it and connect the rear speakers
directly to the output of your rear channel amp in the Blau using the
existing wiring.  You will not need a "power match unit" in this case.  In
my car I found that the car had been wired out of phase in the rear deck
since new!  No wonder the sound had such weak bass!
