    You probably don't NEED 2 sets though. Most 4 channel amps will give signal to all 4 channels from only one pair of RCAs.

    only when you bridge them though.

    Re: 2 sets of rcas for 1 amp?

    The only multichannel amp that I've owned that couldn't run all channels off a single pair of inputs was a limited edition Phoenix Gold that was literally 2 2 channel amps grafted together in one chassis. Two separate boards in one chassis. Every other that I've had either had an auto switching circuit or a switch to pass the signal from a single pair of inputs to all channels.

    What's the amp in question here?

    Missing the point. Why buy two sets when you can just buy 1?
    Not saying that you cant buy two seperate pairs...
