Ok, so I installed a sub amp a while ago and I'm finally getting around to putting in an amp for the speakers. So, I have acouple questions:

1.) I was planning on running a new power cable, then using the RCA outs from my sub amp to connect to my new amp. Will the LPF I'm running on the sub amp affect the signal sent from the sub amp to the new amp?

2.) My head unit only has one set of pre-amp outputs so I don't have the option of doing A and B inputs into the new amp. Also, there is only one set of outs from the sub amp. Does this mean I'm better off using the speaker-level inputs from the stock amp? I know not many songs use front/back fades that would require the seperate A and B, but my front speakers are like 5 or 10 less watts RMS, if that changes things.

Thanks in advance.

If that amp has an output for another amp, all it does is send an unfiltered signal to the other amplifier. This gives you ease of hooking up another amp (for midrange and such). Check your sub amp too, you may have a built in x-over for the midrange amp that you can utilize. Good luck,

Hope that helps....
