I found this output device: http://www.extron.com/product/produc...&version=print
Its called an EXTRON MDA 5A RCA it has one rca input (balanced or unbalanced) and five RCA outputs. They also offer an EXTRON MDA 3A RCA which has one input and three outputs. They have alot of technical specifications which I'm not really familar with so please check it out and see what ya'll think. It lists for $190 I'd like to use it for multiple amps. Let me know if it looks good of its specs.

please correct the url ;o)

by your description, sounds like something to use for multiple amps....

Try This? (http://www.extron.com/product/product.asp?id=mda5arca&version=print)

this looks like a handy piece of equipment... would be interesting to put on a scope and see how the output varies from the input...
also, wonder how it works with low frequencies... (for use with multiple subs...)

btw, here are the specs seperated:

Audio MDA 5A RCA
Gain - DIP switch set to match output type - Unity (0 dB) (this means the input signal "should be" the same amplitude as the output)
Frequency response: 20 Hz to 20 kHz, 0.05 dB
THD + Noise 0.03% @ 1 kHz at nominal level
>90 dB, unbalanced, at maximum output
(so, apparently it will handle bass well down to 20Hz)
Stereo channel separation >80 dB @ 1 kHz; >60 dB @ 20 kHz
CMRR >75 dB @ 20 Hz to 20 kHz

Audio input MDA 5A RCA
Number/signal type - 1 stereo unbalanced
Connectors - 2 RCA connectors
Impedance >10k ohms unbalanced, DC coupled
Nominal level +4 dBu (1.23V), 0 dBu (0.775 V), -10 dBV (316 mV), -20 dBV (100 mV) compatible
Maximum level +17 dBu (unbalanced) at 1%THD+N

Audio output MDA 5A RCA
Number/signal type 5 stereo, unbalanced
Connectors 10 RCA connectors
Impedance 50 ohms unbalanced
Gain error 0.1 dB channel to channel
Maximum level (Hi-Z) +15 dBV, unbalanced, at 1%THD+N
Maximum level (600 ohm) >+14 dBm, unbalanced, at 1%THD+N

no problem ;o)
let us know if you find any reviews...
I may have to get something like this for a future sub/bass shaker upgrade ;o)
