Galaxy S4 to alpine PDX-5...

So I got rid of the idea to mount an iPad in the dash, instead I just want to run my cell to my amp.

However a few questions. I have 2 tweeters, 2 front speakers, 2 back speakers, and a sub.

How can I get the best quality, and what cables should I be running to the amp and from the amp? Is a single rca run enough from the cell to the amp (rca as in white and red, not just a single wire run). Or should I split the RCA into 3 (6) inputs for each input the amp has?

Also what would be the best way to control adjustments from the cell into the amp. Are there good controllers out there for volume, etc that I can splice in before the runs hit the amp?

Thanks a million ahead of time to anyone with some knowledge on this.

Your phone is only going to put out stereo no matter how many ways you split the wire. If you split it into multiple outputs each will see a corresponding drop in signal, or if you run it all in parralel you'll possibly toast your phone. You're basically going to end up with headphone quality sound, but louder.

Simplest solution IMO would be a $50 deck that's bluetooth capable or a $35 deck that has the stereo input. Let it take care of the f/r separation.

Check this out. Memphis Car Audio makes an amp with Bluetooth don't know what the price is but I've been thinking of this route also. http://www.memphiscaraudio.com/produ...on-amplifiers/

That's an interesting idea. If it works well and is affordable I'd go that route.

Run the rca to a PAC lc-1 then RCA's to the amps. That will be your adjustment and you could run another lc-1 after the splitter to the sub amp so you have main volume and a separate sub adjustment.
