Hey everyone

Anyways just got a new amp only a jbl gto 4000 (4 channel) and im stuck with the phone leads really.

I currently have a mono amp for a sub that i have the phonos goin from my hu to the amp EASY!!

But im not sure how to run my new amps phono leads as my hu only has one set of outputs (sub/rear out) and a audio bus in set. So i dont know where i have to connect my 2 sets of phone leads (front/rear) from my new amp to. My existing amp does have a out phono set on it.

any help would be great + ill give u a gd spot at UD next to me hehe what cud be better Razz

Nick- the ICE Nightmare

it's the 100 sony usb one from halfords LOL (Sony CDX-GT424U CD/MP3 Player
), it's the only one i can see, has got a audio bus in. and the standard sony aux output thing. Im not really bothered that i cant change the fade ect, thinkin if i can just get a phono 1 into 2 then another 1 into 2 to get the extra 4 i need lol

Possibly a 6 channel amp would also do the trick or your other option will be a new headunit i think

but i could do this

Y slpitters on the rear pre out and set the headunit to output a full range signal.

Use the crossover in the amp to set the cut off for bass and treble.

Anno i havnt just copied this of another forum Razz

readin up on a pre amp line driver u only really need one if ur running MEGA GEAR an doin SQ runs lol.

so i'll do with that until i get the cash for ur headunit so u can get a newer one lol

Yea you can do that but you lose half the voltage, you may not noticed for daily use anyway so it might be ok. Didnt want to offer you the 'bodge' method! Laughing

i just ran a phono to my mono amp, then another set out of the output on that amp throught a set of splitters to my new amp WEEE.

Gettin a load of chatter on the lines tho, probs coz all the wires are just thrown on top of each other while i was just tryin to get it workin today. Gonna try an route all the cables tommorw. hopefully stop the extra noise lol
