In Reply to: Re: Installing an additional amp wiring questions posted by DC on April 03, 1999 at 10:20:33:

: : 1) Can I splice into the power-in line on the HK amp to power a second amp (e.g. Sony XM502) so that I don't have to fish a power lead the whole way up to the engine compartment? (J1-1) (the J1-1 is from the Z3 faq for the HK amp wiring pinouts)

: ***I would run a new power (12V) line to the amp. The Sony will draw MUCH more power than the factory amp does and could either cause a fire (if improperly fused) and repeatedly blow fuses.

: : 2) Can I splice into the power-on lead to the HK amp adn control/feed both amps?(J1-2)

: ***No problem with that.

: : 3) Do I just splice into the right and left inputs from the HK amp (J2-14,15,16,17) for speaker level input to the new amp?

: *** long as those inputs are for the FRONT speakers.

: : 4) Then cut and splice the right and left low outputs from the HK (J1-7,8,9,10) and power the kick's from the new amp?

: ***I don't know if those number are correct or not but there should be seperate outputs for the front mids and the front tweeters.

: : Thanx for any help,
