    Icon32 wiring two amps..

    I already have a 1800 watt kenwood amp hooked to two 12" kicker CVRs, and I am going to hook up a kicker zx750.1 amp and two kicker CVR 10", how do I hook the other amp up? do I need to run two amp kits, or get a seperate battery?

    Why run 2 sets of different size woffers? They will cancel ech other out. U will not hear the tens unless properly time aligned and staged. Pick a pair and stick with those before u waste your money.

    Thekicker2013 my advice is go to your local stereo shop, and state your situation.

    Get rid of all 4 and invest in a decent pair of subs with the same cone size. As already stated running 10s and 12s in the same rig doesn't work, at least not at entry level knowledge.

    But to run 2 amps you just need to run another set of RCA, and use a distribution block for the ground and power( seperate blocks for each, or just run another good ground) Just split the remote wire.

    Thanks for not answering my question, and I regret joining this forum because of people like you, I didnt ask you about how crappy my subs were, I asked a simple question, and I was given these subs and wanted to make use out of them

    your better off selling the stuff if you got it given to you and buying something that will work better for you


    but distribution block and rca "Y" if needed will hook up 2 amps
