    Default Need advice on 2 Amp setup

    i have a 4 ch amp to push my front and rears and a mono for the sub.
    Should I just run one power cable to the 4ch and then run power from that amp to the mono?
    or would it be better to use a distribution block?
    or even 2 power cables from the battery?

    thanks for any advice!

    Purchase a distribution block. If you're looking for cheap but still has decent quality check KnuKonceptz.com

    Default one more Q

    is there any disadvantage to attaching them to a wooden board and placing them under my seats (plenty of air circulation under there and they shouldn't move much at all)?

    or do i need to bolt them to the vehicle for big bumps and vibrations?

    yea i would run 2 seperate wires or a distribution block.
    as for the block of wood, thats fine.
    to be honest, my amp isnt bolted to anything.
    JUST FREE BALLIN.
    haha.

    One thing you need to think about when it comes to securing audio gear. Will this device, in an accident, turn into something deadly? Sub boxes not secured has killed people and I would think an amp could do the same with the right circumstances.

    If this isn't a concern then your good.
