How to wire an amp

Got an amp 4 channels it has both RCA plugs and straight twisted pair connections, however instead of single - channel plugs for each channel
it has shared N plug in. It's a three wire with +1 - +2 on the connector

Should I use a line converter (more money, more parts, more space needed)
or convert the twisted pair to RCA

Or would it be advisable to use the three wire and join the N lines from 1 and 2 together as they hit the amp..

BTW the new 4 channel ARC has only RCA inputs so thats going to be an issue anyway

I would suggest using a line level convertor they are about 20 dollars and will be well worth the money to make your amp install correct and perform properly if you need more help just pm me thanks

Carisma I have the 2 channel arc amp. Is moding the HK unit with RCA out worth it or should I leave my head unit alone?

If you have no issues with your install keep it that way. It would only make a difference if you had installed a aftermarket head unit with high power outs on the rca's
