frist you need the right adapter sometimes so that the signal that goes to the amp is right because most amps need rca inputs

If the amp you're using is not set up to take an amped output from the car stereo, your amp won't last long unless you keep the stereo turned down very low.

I assume the car stereo has Left & Right outputs for speakers. What your amp has in the way of 4-inputs I'm not too sure, but you could surely use only two of them?
The car-outputs should be modified by running them through potential dividers I reckon, but I don't know the spec's of your equipment.

If you have wires with no plugs such as + and - wires which you clip onto the amp you can solder the Positive and negative straight onto Phono Jacks/cable

As for it working properly it would depend on your amp maximum watts etc and your car stereo
