    How to daisy chain amps?

    I have a Sony 4X35 amplifier that I want to use for my front and rear speakers and I'm going to get a new amp for my sub. Can I run my cd players RCA to the sub amp first and then to the Sony? The sony doesn't have RCA in's and out's it just has in's. It's all very confusing so any help would be greatful.

    No Problem

    Yea, most sub amps, or good amps have RCA outs and ins. So, run your decks RCA's to the bigger amp (sub), then run the Sub amp's out's to the smaller Sony's in's.

    nother options

    A head unit only gives out about 1.3v or 4v from an rca...if its a single its probably <1.3v. Why not get a crossover with a line driver built in. So you can not only split the single, but send higher signals to the incar speaker amps.

    You can also get a Y cable and spit the signal for cheep. But your also loosing a lot of power, and its also not balanced. SO it can **** power from the other.

    YOu can daisy chain them, but i dont like to do that.
