is it good to run two amp's with one power wire to the amp's because the install shop did this one power wire to one amp then jump the power wire to the 2 amp and did the same with the ground wire to and thay cut the rca wire's to make them longer with speaker wire then ran those wire's beside the power wire that is jumping the to amps. so can someone put me on the right track .    i guess to do right you have to do it yourself

                             thanks harmlessv8

Did they not use a distribution block? They just jumped from one amp to the other? Thats pretty ghetto. Cutting the RCA's is too. I'd go back and tell them to either do it right, or refund your money.

extendig rca's is ok, for the most part. But having them near the power wire is only a problem if you experience noise, so if it works don't fix it.
What gauge is the power wire and what are the ratings on the amps?
