  • Speaker wire to RCA cable to amp

    Hi there new here, I recently got a 4 channel amp to go along with my car system since my mb quarts are being a little underpowered and un crossovered by the head unit. I have a bit of a situaion though. On the head unit its all speaker wires and 2 rca cable outputs for the sub. I already have the sub output filled so my question is can I take the powered speaker wire going to the speakers cut them and splice into a RCA cable and hook them up to the amp in order to make this setup work? If you can help me out that be great thanks!

      No. You need to buy a line output converter to convert the hi level speaker out into low level RCA.

          i assume you have a amp hooked up already if your wanting to run another amp jus run rca from the first amp rca outputs to the new amps rca inputs hi/low converters suck and shouldnt be used unless there is no other way to do it
