Splitting RCA's


Les

Recommended Posts

Want to power front speakers and a sub with a 4 channel amp.

I have a single RCA output head deck and I want to split the output so I just purchase 2x RCA splitters right ?

Now, what do I do at the amp end ?

Do I use:

* (L) output from deck split into both (L) front and rear inputs on the amp &

* ® output from deck split into both ® front and rear inputs on the amp

Does this mean I lose my fader option on the deck and need to tune the system from the amp - I think this is what I did before ...

Does this sound right ?

Also, are there any other options I can use apart from buying a new deck ?

pretty much

but if you have your rear speakers still powered by the headunit, you can just adjust how loud that is to fade from the back to the front, dodgy but you get to stay in your seat

wah reading that hurt my head >.<

your sub should really run it's own amp, if you run speakers off it, you can't use a cross over/the cross over on the amp to cut off the higher frequencies, so you'll have voice out of your sub

edit: dam i should read what i post

Thanks man !

On my amp, re the crossover ... I am pretty sure that Channel 1&2 for speakers (I can use high pass setting) should not affect Channel 3&4 (use low pass setting) ... ??

It won't, unless you have a very strange amp :P

Cool ... I didn't think the RCA splitting would affect the X'overs on the amp !

dont it depend on what amp you have as well that lets you do that? a guy told me it only works well with kicker amps and jl audio amps, he can be wrong though.

Cheers guys, thanks for the heads up.

BUT idiot me went out and bought a new head deck !!!!!!!!!!!

Got an Eclipse CD3200 ... 3x 5v RCA outputs ... so no need to worry about RCA splitting :)
