    You need the RCA input adapter which takes the rear pre-outs on the Alpine and feeds them to the rear amp, along with the remote turn on feed. TBH you'd be better rewiring the rears directly to the Hu as you'll find the feeble 2 x 20w amp currently feeding the rears will be completely overpowered by the 2 x 50w+ feeding the fronts from the Alpine.
    Halfords sell the PC9-404 adapter:

    Hi Andy

    Thanks that is very helpful! so i am guessing i should just not worry about the adapter and just rewire the rear speakers to the hu, but does this mean running cable from front to rear ?

    Yes you need to run new speaker cable from the HU back to the amp, where you can pick up the feeds to the rear speakers.
