    Hi guys, let me first explain what I have
    1 sunhans 2.4 1 watt amplifier mimo. Which has 2 ins and 2 outs (for the repeater)
    1 sunhans 5.8 1 watt amplifier (for the controller)
    1 ravpower deluxe 14000 mah battery pack with 1watt and 2 watt out
    So the question is how would I connect the 2 amps to the battery pack? Do I splice the 1 watt and connect both to the 1 watt out? Am I screwed and have to put an additional battery that has another 1w output? Thanks all!!!

    Your amps require a 12 volt power supply. If I am not mistaken, the RavPower Deluxe 14000 only offers 5 volt USB ports. If I am correct, you will need to select another power supply, like the RavPower 15,000 in the link below. Once you have a supply that offers the correct 12 volt power source, you can simply fabricate a y-connector to supply power to both devices from the single power jack.

    RavPower 15,000 with Dual-USB & Selectable 9v/12v output:

    Im running the sunhans 2.4 2watt boosters and they need 6v at 2amp to power you can use the usb 5v 2amp to power them but your output wattage will be like.....1.5watts 1.7watts better than stock!!

    You know what I missed the voltage, I did do alot of reading on this but missed the voltage part. No need to get all pissy. Part of a forumn is to help others out instead of sitting in you garage thinking you are high and mighty.

    Hi Geert,
    I have just got all the parts for a very similar set up. Question - did you find any need for an attenuator?
