RCA's and Multiple amps

Recommended Posts

What do you guys with multiple amps do for getting your signal wire to each amp. I know some amps have RCS outs but what if they don't? Is there another option besides RCA splitters?

If you are using multiple amps, a DSP (digital signal processor) may be in order.  For the subwoofer amps, should you be using more than one amp to power a single channel (monoblock), your amps should have a strapping feature. If the amps don't have that, you may be using RCA splitters...which should be OK if only doing one or maybe two splits.

 

A DSP like this ...

You might be needing to use a relay for the remote turn on too, as the one single wire may not be enough juice to signal 3 or more amps to turn on.

We split our sub out, 6 times,.... Zero issues. Ran 4 sub amps in the blazer, run 6 sub amps in the burb now. Never a issue. We use a COCK box, from Scott Bowman (if you dont know of him, in the car audio world, remove head from sand) , which is basically a real nice splitter.   I refuse to strap amps, do not like doing that. Rather gain match 100 times out of 100. But, that is my preference.

Here is the blazer  ....

 

4 Ampere Audio 3800s

Never had any issue, no voltage drop across,... nothing. Runs tip top.  Its not 1981 any more.

I am speaking about 4-channel amps for mid and highs. What if you are running two or more?

 

Same thing,... Y/Spilt the channels.

In the home audio world, we loathed using splitters.  Each connection introduced some noise to the equation, more connections = more noise.

 

This is what makes audio (in general) so much fun!  So many ways to do things, and an opportunity to express creativity.
