How does this look?


Recommended Posts

Check out this wiring diagram, I believe all the info is on the picture itself. Please help me out if there are errors, I'm just trying to figure this out. Thanks :D

Do the amps have rca pass thrus? Are you spliting the rca at the headunit or near the amps. You only need two rca y adaptors instead of the four you have in the digram since you only have two amps.

Pushing it to the limits. Want more power.

looks ok.

On the main power wire i would run two different fuses, one close to the back batt and one close to the front. you can use the second batt as a distro, but i would rec a small fused ditro block. you can find them online on the forums for about $15.

The deck may end up causing issues, in theory you can use the splitters, i'm just worried the voltage is already so low, that after the splitters your amps will be recieving very little voltage from the radio.

Current Setup:

Factory HU with LOC

mids/highs-Insignia components

Sub- E8 in bass tube

Amp- sae-1200d

Show Setup:

HU-Sony MEX-1HD (brings massive respect for sony)

fronts - Infinity Kappa perfect comps

rears- Infinity Kappa coax

mid/high amp - Autotek 5600

Subs - 2 RE SE 15's

Sub Amps - 2xSAE-1200D

Box - 5cubes sealed

Wire- Lots of Knu 1/0

I'm splitting at the head unit. I have 3 y-adaptors because that way it will make 4 jack for rcas for each amp.

like this kinda...

Do i run the ditrso block right after the second bat? And is there any other way to fix my rca problem?

yeah, run the distro right after the second batt. not required, but the fused ones add a little piece of mind to your setup. The only way i know to fix the RCA issue is

1)attach a pair of LOC's to your speaker leads

2)buy a line driver

or the best option

3)eventually get a different deck. but i'm sure you already knew that

EDIT:

use this and then daisy chain the amps like crump have said. so the sequence being

1rca out>splitter>line driver(or not)>inputs of first amp>out of first amp to inputs second amp

Why cant you just run one y splitter to one amp, then run a set of rcas from that amp to the other? and you can ground the amps at the battery if you want, but the chassis works fine also. Then you gotta fuse the amps within 18" of the battery or closer. Also with your remote turn on wire you can just run one to one amp, then daisy chain it to the other like the RCAs. Pm me if you have any other ?'s

Problem is, there is only input on the amps no output

If i couldn't get a line driver right away then how much power would i be loosing from my 3 y-splitters, rcas, then to the amp? would it be significant?
