Default amp wiring questions

i tried looking on the big sticky for this but didn't really find it, i was wondering what is a good shielded rca cable to use for my amps. also is there any problem with running 3 rca cables in a group. and if i have 3 amps to power what is the best way to do that, run3 seperate power cables from my battery or would some upgrades to my power supply be in order?

any help is greatly appreciated.

No need to run 3 separate power cables. Just run a large gauge wire to the amps and buy a power distribution block to split it from there to the 3 amps.

My opinion on the RCA is that any good shielded cables should work, and you can run the RCA on one side of the car and power cable on the other side.

Hey JL I know this has nothing to do with question on this topic, but do you happen to know whether I can run my converter from the connection of the stock amp to the 6x9'* or do I need to run it from the wires from the HU to the stock amp? thanks!
