With the amp that I`ve got I can use the RCA cables from the head to the amp either for the rear speakers or the front,but not both.
In other words there are 4 RCA outputs from the head unit but only 2 RCA inputs in the amp. I already have all the speaker wires going from the amp to their appropriate speakers, both front and rear. I`m just wondering that instead of hooking up all the individual speaker wires to the amps input side I could just use the RCA cables (front or rear) to get the speaker juice to the amp,then the amped sound would split into all of the speakers.
Would this work or would I be better off running all the speaker wires individually from the head unit into the amps input to assure that all speakers are being amped?
I`m not supposed to (according to the instructions) use both the RCA inputs and speaker wire inputs in the amp,it`s either one way or other,not both at the same time.
Hmmm...maybe I just answered my own question here Fatkid. If I use the RCA cables from the head unit to the amp and hook it up as if I were only amping the rear speakers but left all of the speaker outputs the way i have `em now they`d all be amped. The amp would just think that I have 4 rear speakers instead of 2. Rear speakers in the front and front speakers in the rear...I guess it`s all a matter of placement huh? Break the rules put your rear speakers in the front...and I stopped drinking 7 years ago,sure doesn`t sound like it `cause I`ve talked myself around in a complete circle.
Thanks for trying to help though.
It`ll be trial by fire and maybe a few blown fuses but I`ll get it working!
