    Question Power

    I already have one amp in my boot which powers my 6x9's and door speakers but i have now got enough money together for my subs so i will be adding another amp.

    What i was wandering is can i get my power source by piggybacking from my existing amp/power cable or do i have to run a seperate cable from the battery again?

    Thanks

    It will all depend on what the power rating of the new amp and present wiring will be. To be honest I doubt it will be enough

    Best thing to do would be to get some thicker wire and a distrubution block to say running to sets of wire back

    Yea as autosparks sugested, use sutable power rated cable for the main run, then into a distrubution block. so much easier than daisychaining, proberly even safer too! lol
