    Mid amp with no pre-amp outputs??

    I use a nice 4 channel Alpine amp for my mids, but I'd like to hook up some tweeters on a separate amp.

    The alpine doesn't have pre-amp outputs to share the signal with the other amp, what do you guys do in that situation?

    I'm concerned that using a splitter will sacrifice audio quality.

    Also the crappy tweeter amp does have outputs, so I've been running two channels into the alpine, and 2 into the crappy amp and then the other 2 from the preouts on the crappy amp to the alpine.

    Tweeters: Vifa XT25SC90-04's
    Subs: 2 Obsidian Audio 12v3's
    Sub Amp: Hifonics BRX2400.1D
    Mid Amp: Alpine F-4

    The pre outs just let's the signal pass thru doesn't effect the clarity

    Using a splitter will not degrade the signal either.

    Alright, thanks.
    So with that in mind I'm guessing that the talk on getting a good brand of RCA's is for better shielding and insulation rather than sound quality?

    Shielding, flexibility, build quality, etc. Yep.
