Connecting Multiple Amplifier Audio Systems

Once you have selected your perfect audio system and have it waiting in a neatly-wrapped mail package, the first impulse can be to tear open the box and try to dive directly into the project, using the standard tools and electrical knowledge to get your sound system in working order. Unfortunately, the installation of car audio systems is one of the more complex do-it-yourself operations that you can attempt, because the size of the car, the width of the speaker, and the required power amounts can vary wildly depending on your particular models of automobile and audio system. Connecting a variety of amplifiers in your system can also be a challenging task, because a pile of separate amplifiers can often seem intimidating. After all, there is no immediate way to power the series other than routing a battery through to each amplifier. Luckily, there are a number of steps that can be generally followed to successfully install and connect a sound system, and this article will highlight them for you, as well as providing a backup solution in case your efforts aren’t successful.

Amplifier Audio SystemsThe first step to any job, whether on car audio systems or otherwise, should be to acquire the necessary tools. For the installation of your car’s audio system, you should begin by assembling the following items: a drill, drill bit set, screwdriver, island keys, and a variety of wrenches with different types of heads. Once you have assembled these items, you can acquire the proper selection of wiring required to connect the system to its power source. Next, you need to designate the grounding point, power, and remote wiring for each amplifier you want to install in the car. Your power wiring can often be rerouted to provide power through the power source, which will cut down on the amount of wiring required to power separate amplifiers. In a similar manner to splicing wires, your main power line will divert its energy and provide power to the various amplifiers on your line. A distribution block is the best tool for this job, since it provides an easy and manageable diversion point for all of your wires, and is easy to find for a low price.
The line from your battery – the power source – to your distribution block will then allow you to attach separate lines from your block to the various amps. This way, the battery will send power through the main line and disperse it properly. On this is done, multiple amps will be linked and ready to be installed in the car. Your completed system can be installed by either drilling out panels in your door, which will fit smaller amplifiers and subwoofers, or by installing the enclosed unit in the trunk or rear section of your car.
