Default CD Deck/Amplifier question

My cd deck only has enuf Pre-amp outputs for one amp but I want to hook up one, maybe two more amps so my question is, how can I do that? Is there a wire I can buy that will make the single output wire into a double or triple?

you can either y the connection or you can find an rca amplifier that will help amplify the signal after splitting it.

this takes the connection and splits it, you may want a good one or else you may have interference. also check your amps to make sure you even need these accessories, many amplifiers have in and out for rca and if it does, you can just run a set of rcas to one amp and jumper them to the next

That really doesnt seem right to me. How is that gonna allow me to hook up more then one amp? Or is that kind of the wrong picture, do they sell those wires with the ends on the other way? If not then sorry for being stupid and could you explain/show me how they are supposed to be hooked up?

Just picture that cable but there are 2 female ends and 1 male end. Check your amps for a passthrough you can jump off of, as stated above.

Ok thats what I was thinking (why I asked if they sold wires with the ends the other way around). Just checked too, One of the amps has an Output as well as Input, thats what you''re talking about right?

Yes, hook the rcas from the deck into the first amp, then hookt he output of that amp into the input of the other amp. That output is there just so you dont have to run any extra cables or use splitters.

I would suggest buying a 4 guage or larger wiring kit. They come with the wire, fuse, remote turn on, rca cables, and all the terminals youll need. Ive personally installed many Stinger kits and I think they are a very good kit. I would spend the money and buy a good kit from an audio store instead of a cheap walmart kit, but both will work.
