    multiple amp install question

    Hey guys. Right now i have a kicker kx350.4 bridged to some pg xenon comps for my front. Im going to get some midbass drivers for my rear deck and run them off an arc 2050xxk.

    Now, i dont know much if anything about car audio and thought i read that to get stereo off a bridged amp you have to use the front and rear preouts. Is this correct? If so, can i run a pair of midbass drivers from the sub preout or is there another option?

    first off, you don't want to run midbass in the rear deck. i toyed with the idea but it's just stupid. do you have a sub? if you are gonna be running 4 set of speakers then you have to use all 4 channels of the amp.

    Re: multiple amp install question

    Putting them in the rear might not be the best idea but it's what im gonna do. I don't have tools to do anything custom or the money to pay someone to do it. I don't have a sub and never plan on getting one to be honest.

    My kicker amp is bridged to run my front comps. My question was, do you use both the front and rear outputs on your HU to get stereo from a bridged 4ch amp? I didnt install it so im not sure how it was done. If this is the case then can i use the sub out on my HU to run the amp that will push the midbass'?

    Re: multiple amp install question

    if your four channel amp is bridged to TWO CHANNELS... why would you need two sets of preouts to run two channels? use one set for the comps and one set for the rears. Or just skip the rears. For the price of the XXK and the midbass drivers you could pick up an 8" sub and a decent amp.




    Don't PM me, I'm not here. Find me on SSA or ROE
    No, I won't re-upload the Big3 pictures. Don't ask.
