I am going to run two amps. The sub amp has an amp output so.... do I run the 0 guage wire to a distribution block and then the two wires out to the two amps or do I run the main wire to the sub amp and then output to the speaker amp?

use a distribution block for power. use two different grounds. and run the RCA output to the RCA input of the other amp. make sure you have the amps on the right pass. ex: subs = low.

ok, question. Why use the distro block if I am going to go with the out of the sub amp to the input of the speaker amp? I have to check on the sub amp if it can take the 0 guage wire, that would be the only reason to use the distro block right?

no need to be a d!ck man

and what are you asking? you wanted to know how to

power two amps I answered you run 0 guage to a distro block which will split it into two 4 guage which you then run to each of amps so what is it that you arent getting?
