What I mean by together is can the amps be wired together somehow without having to get new gauge, ground, and remote wires for the 2nd second amp.

I think what you are saying is that you want to power both amps without having to rewire everything. as far as the remote wire all you have to do is splice into it. unfortunatley the only way to power the amps and ground them is with additional wires. i did this by running 4 gauge from the battery back then using a distribution block with 8 guage running to the amps. i also used a distribution block for the ground as well 4 gauge from a secure point in the car with 8 gauge running from that. this is the best way to do it IMO.

basically run you power wire to the trunk. mount your power dist. block somewhere close to your amps. i am assuming they are in yourtrunk so a good place would be on the back of the seat or on the box. samething you ground dist. block. you only want a maximum of about 3 feet of wire going from the dist. blocks to the amps. so you have to mount relatively close to the amps. with this kind of power i would also consider a power cap unless you have a upgraded battery or alternator.

What kind of amps are you wiring? Some bass amps (i.e. JL Audio) like a clean 4 gauge power wire!! Just a thought!!

Use a distro and run say 0 gauge from the battery to the distro and then like 4 from the distro to the amps. Always go from a bigger main power wire to a smaller from the distro to the amps.

You need to run 2 seperate grounds, either use a ground block or ground them both to the same spot.

The remote wire you can run from one amp to the other
