    preout problem

    Hello, I just got my 120.4 here and I and realized something, that neither the 2200 or the 120.4 have any outputs. so, I have only two preouts on my HU and a total of six inputs on the amps(2 bass, 4 highs) short of getting a new HU what can I do? Will the signal be too weak using splitters?
    Any input is appreciated
    thanks guys

    Could do HU preout to mids amp and use a LOC of HU speaker leads for the sub amp. Y splitters might also work as I've split the signal multiple times in a few set ups with no issues...

    I read somewhere that you could split RCAs like 6 times and still get usable signal, but if you want to do it clean, just get an electronic crossover. 2 RCAs in, up to 6 or sometimes more out.

    Splitting the RCA cables will not affect the voltage they carry, just the amperage. I think you would be fine using splitters in your case.
