My question is, is it OK to split the RCA's coming from the stereo multiple times to go to multiple amps? I know I could just daisy chain the signal from amp to amp, but the way I have it set up is I have the blue 'turn-on' wires from my existing amps connected to individual 'on/off' switches so I can turn on the amps seperately, which is nice for saving battery power. So I want to add another amp and I'm hoping I can split the RCA's (signal) one more time.

Most pass thru's (that i've seen) work without power applied. So you could just daisy chain them...

Could try something like this as well...

anytime you split the signal you can loose a bit of quality. Will your hear the diffreance? it depend's. Best bet it to use a splitter like what clayton posted and see if you can hear a diffreance

Thanks, thats kinda what I'm using now, I just used the Stinger 'Y' connectors splitting the rear channel, one goung to the tower (2 channel) amp and the other going to the boat (4 channel) amp. But my plan is to add another set of speakers on the tower, powered by another (2 channel) amp, So I guess I could just go ahead and 'Y' the front channel to feed the 'new' amp.

Here's what I have:
Alpine 9857 (with iPod connect)
PPI DCX 500.2 / Fusion 3-way Combos (tower)
PPI DCX 300.4 / 4 Polk Audio Momo's (boat)
PPI DCX 1000.1 / 1 - JL 10 W7

PPI DCX 500.2 / Polk Audio 6X9's (tower)
