    Head unit outputs question

    Alright so we all know most head units have the basic subwoofer, front and rear outputs. My question is how do you get the extra outputs for more speakers?

    i always heard splits would decrease quality and output power

    You dont need more outputs for more speakers you just need a more powerful amp to drive more speakers and the proper knowledge to wire them correctly so that amp sees the proper impedance load. If you need help check out crutchfield.com or the12volt.com's wiring guides or read around bcae1.com because your just not understanding things properly.

    Re: Head unit outputs question

    So lets say i got a channel that can put out 150 watts does that mean i can wire two 75 watt speakers to that one channel? This is for component speakers to not subwoofers cause i belive i heard you cant wire components and coaxials to change the impedence load.

    Wouldnt the proper wiring only be for subs though? I am not look to run subs im lookin to run comps

    RCA Y-splitters do NOT change the signal in any way.

    no, the proper wireing is not for subs only or any **** like that. What are you powering your components, coaxes with right now?

    Re: Head unit outputs question

    Just hook another rca to the output (not the input) of one of your amps...?

    Re: Head unit outputs question

    i got a six channel amp i was just wondering where to get the outputs for the 5th and 6th channel since the head unit is only for 1 2 3 and 4 would a y splitter work?
