  • Custom 3.5mm to RCA cable or three way splitter?

    I am doing a tablet install into my truck with a USB DAC. I've got everything worked out except I need to hook up a 3.5mm jack to a a 6 channel car amp. I realize that it is not possible to access six channels from a 2 channel source, but I just need to physically connect to all 6 RCA jacks on the amp to get sound to play through all of my speakers.

    Y splitters have one input and two outputs, but I need a splitter that has one input and THREE outputs. Either that or a cable that has a 3.5mm input and SIX RCA ends (3 left and 3 right.) I know that I am having trouble with this because these items are not in high demand, but I am hoping that someone out there makes custom cables and I could commission them to build one for me.

    Thanks for any help.

    P.S. I know that an option could be to use an EQ or crossover to accomplish this, but I'm trying to go for a minimalist build.

    I am looking for a solution to this as well. My fear of using a splitters is signal degradation. I feel like an active EQ or signal processor would make the signal stronger.
