    Default 3rd amp... keep it simple please

    Hey guys, I just scored a sweet deal on a WS HT2. I am going to use it to run my KMT674 towers. I am currently splitting my 400 watt Kicker amp to run subs and towers... so I think this will make a huge difference in sound. Right now I am running the 400 watt off the factory 200 watt. I need to run all new wires to a new block for this WS amp correct???

    Thanks for the help, and as many of you know, I am no audio guru so please keep advice as simple as possible.

    Yes the 3rd amp will need new wires just like the others. All the amps should be home ran to the power and ground. If your other amps have an OUTPUT RCA connection you can piggy back your audio sound off them.

    Like MLA said, Home Run to be is to a distribution block.

    I run 0 gauge to my distro and 4 gauge to my amps. From the Distro to the Battery is also 0 gauge.

    Beyond 2 amps, I like to use a single large trunk line and distribution blocks, as opposed to laying in a 3rd dedicated home-run to the battery/switch. This not only makes for a clean install, but cuts down in the number of cable lugs being stacked on the battery(s) and/or switch.
