    Re: amp to my speakers. quick help

    To run an amp on your door speakers it will require the following...

    Power ran from your battery to the amp. A ground from the amp to your car. A remote 12v wire from your head unit to the REM of the amp. Speaker wires from your speakers to the amp. And RCA wires from your head unit to the amp.

    You would need to run new wires for your speakers. It is impossible to use the existing ones, unless you run your own wire from the amp to the back of your radio and connect them on the existing stock wires.

    No you don't need an RCA splitter. Depending on how many channels you plan to amplify. You run 1 set for your front, and one set for your rear. Some 4 channel amps are capable of running all channels on 1 rca wire but you loose your fading capability.

    Distro blocks are only used if you have more than one amp, or dual power inputs on a single amp. A single power wire and ground wire is ran to the distro block. Then from there it can be split to 2 amps.

    Ahh so you already have subs hooked up with an amp.

    Then you will indeed require 2 distro blocks to split you power and ground to the 2 amps.

    And you HAVE to run a separate RCA wire. You can NOT use the same one as you are using for your subs.

    The REM wire can just be ran from amp to amp or split and then connected to both.

    Refer to my above post about distro blocks.

    Sorry for the confusion.
