Multiple sub woofer amp wiring

I am getting ready to wire up 5 sub woofer amps (Bheringer NX6000D and 4-NX3000D's) to the 2 sub outputs on my Onkyo RZ-3100. Can I simply use multiple "y connectors" when converting from RCA to the XLR style, or do I need to worry about signal degradation as it is split up. If so, is there a solution, such as a signal amplifier? Manic Mike

Best practice would be to use a unbalanced to balanced audio distribution amplifier.

But, you can do it with just some Y-cables and the right connections for the amps.

The amps want a balanced signal, but can accept a unbalanced signal as long as the wiring is correct.
