You should start educating yourself and make informed decisions otherwise you are just short changing yourself and spreading around misleading information for others to follow.

Don't sweat it. Read above. You do not need pre amp outputs to run a complete aftermarket sound system with subwoofers.
Bluetooth input is not the same as preamp input. Don't even consider that as the same. Main problem, BT is a compression based protocol so whatever you send to an amp using it will be significantly degraded in quality. Let me remind you, BT was not originally designed for music and most people in a blind test can point out BT music from a well encoded mp3 or CD recording. Lack of preamps is a big deal if you want to add an amp. One can get creative but this would be a deal breaker for me. That being said, this unit is not intended for people that care about good sound quality. The audio processing capabilities of these units are highly questionable as far as quality so maybe this is OK for the average buyer of these units.
