Were do you plan to put the amps? How long will the wire runs be? What ohm loads on the amps
Put your best foot forward!

What exaclty are you trying to hook up speaker wise?

I run my amps straight to the batteries. The turn on wire goes to the back of the radio, which is powered from the boats elec system. You will need a set of rca jacks from the head unit going into one amp, and a set of rca's out of that amp, into the other amp. Depending on the amp specs, sounds like the Kicker can be used for the subs, and the rockford for the highs.
