    you can not bridge the amps together. Does one of the amps have an out put for rcas. Your going to need a distro block for power wires.

    u need a fuse block for power wires, ground block for ground wires. U will need to run separate RCA's for each amp, as for the remote wire u can just same one. just run from one to the other, then a wire from battery to 1st amp

    depends on what woofer and speakers you have. to be honest that amp you got was junk for a 4 way. i would get a different amp. post up some product numbers and specs.
