    Very simple, most amps now have a set of RCA outputs that will send the same signal out to another amp, aka daisy changing. If this is not the case, you can get some splitters (1 male to 2 female) to give you (2) sets of outputs.

    System is a work in progress.

    one male to two female y-splitter found at radioshack...

    you will need two of thoes. connect the male to the back of the deck, one on red.... one on white..... bam, two outputs.... run rcas accordingly.

    keep in mind onboard x-over become useless because you dont want to send a hi-pass to your sub amp, or a low-pass to your highs amp....

    Re: only 1 set of rca's

    i actually do not have any subs yet. i am using one amp to power my rear speakers and another to power my fronts.

    so should i use "daisy chaining" or just get the y-adapters?

    depends on the deck....some decks only have sub-out, if thats the case yoou either need amp with speaker level inputs or a loc for the fronts

    ^Yep, id do the daisy chain, all you need to buy is a short RCA cable which you probably have laying around your house.
