    does one of your amps have an rca output on them?

    Re: HU only has one set of RCA out's

    ya but i thought that was jus for strapping them together to make the woofers amped? im using one for 6.5's and the other one for the woofer. the one that has the rca out is a 1100D directed audio

    it'll work on your other amp. it's not for strapping, but could be used for strapping. it should say something like aux. output or something like that.

    RCA Output Protection - mono
    or this?
    Master/slave RCA jack functions support two amps bridged to one load, or multiple amps driving separate loads with synced gain

    Re: HU only has one set of RCA out's

    i dont think either of those is right for your application. you could use a rca splitter but thats kinda ghetto. you could also pick up an eq or crossover. they are usually set up for 1 input signal and multiple output signals.
