[welcome]

Is your amp a 4 channel amp? And if you don't have aftermarket speakers in the door I wouldn't amp the stock speakers. It is a complete waste.

Is there any way you can post a picture of the connectors or give the brand and model number? And I would buy some speakers or sub to connect the amp to. You will most likly blow your stock speakers with them amped.

Yea. You will have a power wire which will connect to the positive terminal of the battery. Then you will have a ground that will connect to bare metal on the car. Must be bare, no paint! Next are the RCA's which give the amp the audio to play. If you have a stock stereo you will need to go buy a LOC(line output converter), which taps into your rear speaker wires to give you the RCA outputs. If you have an aftermarket radio, it will already have the RCA outputs. Next is the remote turn on. This tells the amp when to turn on and off. Again if you have an aftermarket radio, you will have a wire that you can use. If not then you can buy a LOC that has a power control for you, or you can tap into a fuse that is on when the car is on.

On to connecting the sub. If the amp is a two channel then you can just use one channel or you can bridge it. If it is a mono block amp then there is only one option.
