How do u hook up two four channel amps to power four speakers with out bridging them for two channels each on amp? Do u split one RCA connection (ex. 1st channel) with a Y-cable and plug each RCA into channel 1 of each amp, then take both + and - coming out of each amp then combine the + and - to run to the desired speaker?

why not just use one amp? blown channels? if so, do not combine speaker wires once they're coming out of the amp. just use good Y splitters and run #1 y splitter red to #1 amp and black to the other, then #2 y splitter black to #1 amp and red to the other.

I hope you get that rambling of crap? sorry.

Most amps have rca output as well. Just connect one to the other. Bridge one amp for the front two speakers and bridge the other for the back. There should be little concern for bridging if you keep your gain down.

You don't. You either bridge each amp to two channels, or you use one amp only. Don't hook up two amp channels to one speaker, unless you are using a dual voice coil sub. Evenin this case I rather bridge the amp.
