in order for me to run my 4 channel in 4 channel mode i will have to use Y-splitters to split the RCAs because i do not want to buy another set of rca cables.

i currently only have on set of RCA cables running back to the amp and i dont want to run or buy another set.

Will running an amp in 4 channel mode sound any different than 2 channel mode? it does not matter if the RCAs going into the amp are from the front or rear outputs of the HU if all EQ settings are at 0 correct?

front and rear do matter but if you are doing splitters then it doesnt matter you wont be able to fade it anyways. you have to run a set from the front out to the front in and from the back out to the back in to worry about using the front and rear it should all be the same signal coming out!!

if i did 4 channel each comp set was gonna be on each channel, but if i did 2 channels i was gonna bridge two of them.

i do not know what fade is. these are comps that im wiring up, im using the external crossover. so using y splitters would be the same as two sets of rcas?

Splitters will not give you more power. It just splits the input signal. You can run it in 2 channel input mode and still get plenty of power from the 4 channel. That's what the switch is for.
