    Nakamichi CD-300 Question

    I want to get one of these, they have them at onlinecarstereo.com for $155

    http://www.onlinecarstereo.com/CarAu...roductID=15580

    anyways. i noticed it only has one set of RCAs. This poses a problem, because I will be running 2 amplifiers.

    how can i get 2 sets of rcas from this one pair? would it be acceptable to just use a pair of y-splitters? or would that affect the signal too much? im asking because i dont know

    Y splitters should work. although i have not heard much about that head unit if anything i would go with a good alpine , pioneer etc....

    You really need an outboard crossover or EQ that would not only allow a 1 in 2 out setup, but that would boost the output up to at least 5v.

    Running splitters also reduces the output both amps will see.

    Then it sounds like you're all set.

    Should be a nice setup!

    It looks like it has a front out, rear out, and sub out....

    If so, you picked up a really nice entry SQ control system on the cheap (probably around $200)

    Good pickup!
