quick question.. to add a second amp to the boat, do I just get a 2 fuse block splitters . 1 for the + and one for the -? and then splice the power antenna wire between the 2 amps?

Will the "trunk" line handle the added current draw??? What size (ga) cable is there currently and whats the potential current draw of the 2 amps. Is the circuit protection at the battery for the current amp able to handle a 2nd?

"Antenna wires" - I'm guessing you mean the RCA cable? If so, best to run another set from the head unit to the 2nd amp. Most head units will have at least 2 RCA outputs.

I think he means the remote wire. What I've always done for the remote wire when adding a 2nd amp is just run a wire from one amp to the other so you'll have a remote wire from your head unit to the 1st amp and then a wire from there to the 2nd amp. Sorry if that doesn't make sense I've been drinking

^^^ Makes perfect sense to me.........ive been drinking to

That might be what he meant. I do like you with the remote turn-on, just "daisy chain" from 1st to 2nd.
