My car is already wired up with one 4 channel amplifier that currently is powering a pair of coaxial speakers up front and a subwoofer(bridged mode).
Current installed components:
1. Blaupunkt GTA470 - 70W rms x 4 channels
2. JL Audio 10W0v304 - 10 inch subwoofer rated 300W rms
3. Vibe Slick 6 pair of coaxial speakers front
I am planning to install the following:
1. JL Audio JX250/1Monoblock Amp - for powering the subwoofer
2. Focal 165KR rated at 80W rms - component speakers to be fitted in front and to be powered by the Blaupunkt GTA470
3. Relocate the Vibe Slick 6 speakers to the rear doors - to be powered by the Blaupunkt GTA470 as well
What I was thinking of doing?
1. Buy a wiring kit
2. Use a distribution block to get 2 power wires from the one that is powering the Blaupunkt amp currently
3. Use a remote cable and run it from the Blaupunkt amp to the JL audio amp to turn on both amps
4. Use another ground wire attached to a different part of the car for the JL audio amp
1. Do I really need a distribution block and if not, how do I make the 1 power wire into 2? I can solder at a decent level if it is required.
2. Any flaws or suggestions to my above plan?
The reason why I am asking is because I had planned to get someone to fit all these as I am not the greatest with electrical wiring. I am utterly frustrated with customer service here. I have been trying to get in touch with the people that fitted my double din stereo the last time and after being given the run around for way to long, I gave up and decided to attempt to do it myself. I have sadly very little time and that's one of the main reasons why I wanted to get a professional to get it right the first time.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
