    Help for installing two amps

    I have a 600 watt 2 channel (offbrand, but what they hell) and am looking to buy another when I get another sub. Can I successfully hook 2 of these up? If so, please elaborate.
    Thanks



    I'm praying for rain,
    I'm praying for tidal waves,
    I wanna see the ground give way,
    I wanna watch it all go down.

    run at least a 4 gauge power wire into a 2 or higher (depending on whats needed) fuse disribution block.. they have usually at least 8 guage out to the amps. then get a disribution block..usually accept 8 gauge or larger from amp with another end larger for chasis ground....want to use same size ground as your power wire from battery. fuse blocks usually have more than 1 input also so adding a cap (or set of caps) is a snap. also look into getting your alternator beefed by at least another 20 amps (also known as rebuilt or rewound)

    Getting your alt. rewound can cost anywhere from $30-100. Depends on exactly what you want or by how much it can be rewound. Audiolife might be able to help you with costs for distribution block, and so on.
