Can i hook two integrated amps together?

can you hook up two amps together

I really like my Cyber Deluxe and could pick up a matching one for cheaps, but I don't want to haul around two 45 lb amps. If One amp has a preout on it, run rca cable from the preout of the one amp to the input of the other amp. I also have a jvc 500watt amp that i had before the Power Acoustik and it never blow it still working. The preout option is simpler if your stereo amp offers a processor aka home theatre mode to support bypassing its internal preamp, but is a pain in the butt if you don't, as you need to deal with level matching mark the correct volume level on the stereo , accept audio degradation due to the double pre-amp and never forget to turn the volume back down again before using the amp's inputs! All of this is important because amps are designed to work with a certain resistance in mind. You don't get even a small increase in hum running without an earth isolating transformer then? But when i turn off the kenwwod amp my sound is perfect, no distortion.

Simply rms means the adequate power you should amplify the woofers to, same thing for the speakers. This technique allows you the ability to use two different-sounding amplifiers to create a fuller guitar tone. I need to know how you set your amps to run at 2 ohm or 4 ohm. That does something that can be done for almost nothing, if you know how do to it right. This can be 'effect send' or 'pre amp out' or 'line out'. I also own my own business in San Diego. In a car we often use 4 speakers of stereo because of the terrible environment.

It's kind of a pain for not a lot of benefit. Does anyone know if I can I connect the two amps together using this or do I need to buy something else to do it? Sometimes the best way to add muscle to your sound is by simply combining a couple of amps that you already own. The same thing goes for anything else like speakers, amplifiers, and headunits.

I'd appreciate advice on connecting the head unit to the amps and both amps. Then connect the other end of the instrument cable into the male-to-male ¼-inch adaptor. I know I would wind up leaving one at home. How would i go about wiring the subs to both the amps? I thought all receivers were suppost to have the same level of volume at a certain db number. Bridging is something I am not very familiar with, but I believe other people might be of some help.

A load could be a motor, a light bulb, a speaker, a group of speakers in a bass cabinet, or several bass cabinets together. You should have no problem driving them with your Pioneer 1019. If everything has modern wiring in good order, then the ground loop can result in a hum - caused by the two paths to ground through each amp and through the grounded connection from one amp to the other via the shield of the signal cord. When i crank the volume, the sound from my speakers gets more distorted as the volume gets louder, the bass seems to be fine. Ezekiel James began as a music writer in 2003.

How do you base whether you need a. This is how it should go battery power goes to + then that same one goes to amp or amps most likely the one powering the woofers then the other terminal the one that is not the positive should go to the ground.

Again, not wanting to fry anything, I made dang sure with the techies. Make sure you use the correct cables and have extras to avoid the temptation of using an instrument cable. Should I just use the speaker level inputs on the 300w amp or buy some y cables to split it? For example lets say you hook up the rca's from your head unit to an amp that is 350 watts.
