Like title states, How to effectively wire in 4 subs plus 2 buttkicker amps into receiver?

My equipment:

Denon 4311ci- preamp

Emotiva xpa-5
Emptiva xpa-2

2 - svs pc13-ultra, one with bash amp and one with sledge amp

Total 6 buttkickers and 2 bka1000-n amp. 3 bk go to 1 bka1000-n, i have y splitters for each input on denon sub ports.

I'm wanting to add a couple subs in the rear sides of my room. Assuming i buy subs with amps like svs sb-1000's for example, i can't split anymore off my sub inputs.

How would this all work?

You should be able to daisy-chain from the subs to the first buttkicker amp then daisy-chain them to each other. I would run Audyssey before connecting the buttkickers - the mic will likely pick up the vibrations from them. Most modern sub amps have an in and an out jack.

When all else fails - RTFM!
