    O.K you need 2 LOC's,line out converter. Hook them up to all 4 channels 1 per 2 channels. If you get an amp with high level in you dont need LOC's. You just run the wire straight to the amps imput like rca's

    Re: hooking up two amps to my deck! help!

    1. you can run speaker wires straight to the amp (if it has hi-level inputs).
    2. You can use y-adapters.
    3. one 4 channel loc from www.davidnavone.com
    4. If your amp has rca pass-thru's or preouts, you can run rca cables from the first amp to the next
    5. External x-over
    6. If you don't like any of these, then it's time for a new deck

    I've done a couple of setups with only one rca preout. It takes more tuning setup because you won't have as much flexibility from the deck. But the end results in SQ is basically the same.

    Sound Domain lists your amp with pre-amp outputs as well as inputs, so daisy chaining (option 4 above) is probably your best (cheapest) option.
