Request assistance with wiring second amp. Here's my current setup:
Sony CDX-F7715X HU
Polk Audio DB570s in all 4 doors (60 watts RMS)
Audiobahn A2002T 2-channel amp (bridged 200RMS)
Waiting on sub (next week) to hook up to Audiobahn amp
Ok, now I want to hook up my second amp (also arriving next week) to my four speakers. It's a Profile California 4400 4-channel (50 x 4 RMS). I had the installer hook up a power distro block inside my cab for multiple amps. Now is where I come in (with no experience hooking up amps) but figure it shouldn't be too hard. I know thru reading to ground them both to the same spot and ground the highest RMS one first and then the other on top. Here's my questions for the rest of the hookup:
- Do I need to run a separate fuse, or is the one fuse intended to cover both amps since they're run off the distro block?
- What amp fuse should I get? current fuse is only 25 amps
- How should I run the remaining wires (other than the speaker wires)?
- Lastly, the installer ran both power and signal wires on the same side of my Sport Trac for my Audiobahn. He said this is not a problem for a sub, but definitely separate for speakers. Is this true? Everything else I've read says to separate power and signal wires, but nothing specific on if it's a dedicated amp to a sub.
Any help appreciated,
