Make a Two Amplifier Installation Easier with a Dual Amp Kit

Most high end car audio sound systems are equipped with two amplifiers, one for the subwoofer and one for the speakers. Installing both of those amplifiers into your vehicle can be timely and costly if you are using two separate amplifier installation kits. Make it easier for yourself and invest in a dual amp wiring kit. A dual amplifier installation wiring kit allows you to run one wire to the battery instead of multiple wires to the battery, which in turn saves on installation time and cost of all that unnecessary extra wire. Once the single power wire is ran to the battery, a distribution block splits the power into two wires, one for each amp. Most dual amp kits include one long piece of power/ground cable to run to the battery, and one shorter piece that connects to the distribution block to the installed amplifiers. Below I will provide information on two great dual amp kits that will make installing two amplifiers much easier on you.
