How do you wire 2 amps together. I have my speakers running to one amp can I tie my other amp into it.

You can use distribution blocks to get the power and ground to both amps. You can use Y splitters to get the sound to both amps. What exactly are you trying to do?

You can probably bridge the current amp and run one pair off that and then another pair off the new amp..

But if you are asking can you power the same speakers from both amps like combining the power no..

More details on what you have and we can help

Use blocks as mentioned, your amp may have an output to run to new amp. What r ur 2 amps?

Depending on the amp and speakers you can run 8 speakers off a 4 channel amp, or a few other configurations including a sub.

I had this hooked up before with Y spliters but I can not remember how I had them. I already have both amps wired up I just need to know how to split them from the head unit to the amps.

what pre outs does your head unit have? are you running a sub? all needed info. i'm assuming you have a sub and 2 pre outs? you need male 2 female y cables, then two pair of regular shielded rca's. keep the lengths as short as possible. however, you could also not use y adapters, and jump from amp 1's output rca's to amp 2's input rca's. this of course depends on the amp and possible speakers.

although not what i believe he is asking, you can indeed power a single speaker by more than one amp. its called strapping, and is not often used as it is more efficient in terms $$$ and space to just use a single amp. here is a brief tutorial:
