a 68 am/fm radio. I have the 2 4" inch in the dash wired in series to give me the 8 ohms. Sounds ok. I want to know if there is a way to either add a high to low converter to the one speaker output and run that into a pre-amp eq and then to a 4 ch amp OR leave the speaker output alone and add line out to the radio. I installed for about 10 years so doing board level mods doesnt bother me but I havent touched or installed in about 8 years, I've forgotten alot of info and lost all my ref material to theft. If this cannot be done I guess the only alternative is to diconnect the 2 4" and add 2 6x9 in the rear deck. Also how safe would it be to hook up an rf changer to this same radio? Thanks.

You can use a “line output converter” wired off the existing speaker leads from your stereo. http://www.crutchfield.com/S-FwTEhsTPCyp/cgi-bin/ProdView.asp?s=0&c=11&g=721&I=101PL2&o=p&a=0&cc=01&avf=N&search=
This will convert your hi level signal to low level RCA. You can run the one set of low-level RCA’s to the input side of the preamp. This will divide the signal into front, rear and sub depending on your particular component. If you are going to run a 4-channel amp it would be best to run all the cars speakers from the amp for fader and gain control.

Your “RF” Radio frequency converter is an antenna interface and will work with analog but not as well as digital for a CD Changer.

Assuming your 68 radio is mono, I don’t know of any board mod’s you can do to make it stereo. You might consider doing something like this if you want stereo http://members.cox.net/renslove70ss/stereo.htm
