Russound mca c-5

New to this so I have 2 mca c-5 amps trying to hook them both up together so is can use all 12 zones. So I got the cat 5 connected to the out port of Amp 1 and into the in port on amp 2. Got first dial on amp 1 set to 1 and 2nd amp dial switched to 2. Get sound out of amp 1 but nothing out of amp 2. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong. Programmed it right on software. Not sure what to do. Thanks

From your post, it sounds like you followed the instructions in terms of setup but not the requirement for cabling. Did you use a cat5, cat5e, or cat6? You might try a Cat 5e or Cat6 to see if it works.

Does the second controller work alone?
When you say "programmed it right on software," how did you set it up?

FYI, Russound is generally helpful with setup.
