I want to run 2 amps, but my receiver only has one single rca/LFE out. and one of my amps has rca in, and the other is a sub with a built in plate amp with a single rca/LFE in. so I would have to either use 2 rca y spliters, or if there is something else that would be better, I could do that as long as it wasn't to expensive.
I was wondering, how much do rca y splitters degrade the voltage and signal? I am considering putting another one in, so I can keep the 12" jbl I already had and the 2 15s I just got. the jbl has a plate amp, and only needs a single rca/lfe to run it. the 15s are running off a behringer epx3000 that I am currently running off my receivers single rca/lfe output with a rca y splitter. so I would have a rca y splitter coming out of the receiver, with one end going to the jbl, and the other end going to the wall, through the attic back down to another wall, into a single rca/lfe, then into y splitter, and into the amp. do you think that would work if I got good cables?
I just tried it with a cheapy super thin wallmart y splitter, and it worked great until about -15 volume, then the receiver went into protect and said check wires. so im thinking maybe if I got good quality wires that it would work.
or maybe I could get some kind of rca voltage amplifier/splitter.
I was also wondering if its ok to plug my amp into a shared power strip or if I should plug it directly into the wall. I have it in the power strip now to protect it from surges in case of lightning or something. but the power strip also has a couple of other things plugged in so idk if that would keep it from getting full power or not.
just realized I had one of my speakers disconnected with wires dangling when I did that, so that might be why it went into protect and said check wires.
