Default second amp for door speakers only putting out bass

guy on youtube told me since my sub amp had a in and out for rca i could hook it up like that but when i hooked it all up my mids an highs where just producing bass.. if i got a rca splitter an hooked it up behind the deck running a second line of rcas to the back would that work? an would it distort the sq?

Splitters would work as long it's not specifically a pre out for subwoofer...because any settings the head unit would have for that rca would affect all your rca's, or so I would presume.

If you have only have one rca preout then likely it's not only for subwoofer and you'd be good.

1st step. DON'T LISTEN TO PPL ON YOUTUBE!!!
2nd step. Check the back of your head unit to see if you have more than just 1 RCA output.
Usually head units have at least 2 if not 3. Let us know.

2? Or 2 sets?

If it has 1 set, go from radio to mids/highs amps, out to next mid/highs amp, out to sub amp.

If it has 2 sets, go from front set on back of radio to mids/highs amp and out to next mids/highs amp. Go from sub set out to sub amp.

I have tested that amp about a bazillion times. I know what it does clean, clipped, dirty, loaded, unloaded, wired down, low voltage, good voltage, after it hot, while it's cool, on caps, on batts, where it protects, what's thermal limits are and just about anything else anyone would care to know about it.

But thanks for chiming in. Your opinion is duly noted.
