You head unit only has built-in amplification for four speakers. If you want to connect up another pair, you'll have to get an external amplifier and run the RCA pre-outs on the back of the head unit into it.

(well, you could potentially wire two sets of speakers into one of the HU outputs, but you'd have to make sure impedance stayed within the rated range [i.e. if two 4 ohm speakers are wired in series, you'd have an 8 ohm load on that channel, if they were wired in parallel, you'd have a 2 ohm load, which would probably blow up any amps not designed as dedicated sub amps ] and beside that, I doubt you'd be satisfied with the lack of amplifier power if you did that anyway.)
