I’m from Malaysia. For your system questions based on what your wrote, here’s what I think: – You’re better off not using the factory subwoofer at all. If you’re not using 2-way crossovers for both the tweeters and the other speakers (but instead, a single one to the tweeters only) then it’s a different situation. I also remember that Sony head unit, by the way. To channel 3, I’ve attached the upper left side speakers With the second method do i have stereo sound? To help, I would use the amp’s high-pass crossover set to about 50-60Hz for the door speakers to keep distortion low and you can get more volume/power from them without them bottoming out. My English is not so good. Hi Neil – yes if the Rockford works fine I would keep it. Thank you Marty! You’ll want the amp to have decent power, however, because when speakers share an amp channel in parallel, they split the power. ? (The KMM-xxxx series for example). Connect the from RCA outputs to the front amp channels then the subwoofer output RCAs to the rear channels. Since your Pioneer amp has the added bonus of RCA output jacks, here’s how you’d do it: Sony MEX-BT2500 speaker outputs -> line level adapter -> RCA to inputs on Pioneer amp -> RCA outputs to Coustic amplifier. switch or RCA Y adapters), then back from the amp to the factory front speaker wiring as I mention in the article (easier doing it at the dash). However, in this case you’re wanting to add a second amp which I’m not sure if it has that or not. Hi Bill. However, should you add another amp later, according to the Fusion manual you can link Zones 1 & 2 so they’re controlled by the same volume adjustment. Just not sure about the RCA connection from the head unit to the amp. That’s awesome, Cody, & thanks for letting me know! – You said you’ve got a 4 channel amp but I assume you’re using it with the pair of RCAs from the Pioneer? However, neither of those options are the best. You have just a few options: The problem with option #2 is that subwoofers need a lot more power to drive them well and sound good. That being said, don’t worry too much! Would I need to have a RCA y from the radio to the amplifier? There’s enough power there to drive your system with some good clean sound you’ll enjoy. sturdy thanks to screw something up with a change turning them on and stale. 1 output. To measure the Ohms (resistance) of a speaker’s voice coil, hold the meter probes to the speaker terminals, making sure to keep firm contact to bare metal Paint, insulation, dirt, and solder flux can mess up your reading otherwise. Sounds great and I’ll work with crossover High and Low filters to refine. How actually can i install them so that i can get loud and also best sound quality. Thank you Marty, I’ll go as per the suggestion you provided ? Hi Rebza. Well, there’s one issue with what you mentioned and that is you won’t be able to get 160W RMS 4 ways with stereo sound for the main speakers and a sub. Hope that helps! Speakers are usually connected in series or parallel (well, really, most often in parallel) which affects the total resistance an amp will see. Just letting you know, I went with the 5-channel Pioneer GM-D9705. You’ll get a LOT more for your money using a good head unit rather than an amp with Bluetooth built in. And also I’m getting less sound o/p from Components than Co-axial. If so you’ll probably want to connect those or replace with aftermarket ones & add them too. Unlike their smaller siblings, they’re designed to be able to handle a large amount of heat. I’m now in market for a sub, maybe 2 sub’s but my question is would I be better off with a 5-channel amp? Hi Andi. Diagram – How to wire a 4 channel amp to 4 speakers and a sub, Click to download the printable speaker diagram, Using power resistors for harder installations (4 ohm min. The Kenwood units offer a better EQ however. An amp with built-in Bluetooth receiver will be better (Rockville and some other brands have some good ones that can run your whole system). If your sub is svc 4 ohm, you can wire each sub straight to each channel of your amp and get 4 ohm load. The science part is what I was missing. Any ideas how I might do this? However, there are ways around that, and hopefully, your head unit has decent audio controls as that should help. Here’s an example of a good budget powered subwoofer: Rockville RVB12.1A 12″ powered subwoofer. Hi Marty, I have tried option #1 for a start just to try if it will work. Hi Marty, When using a subwoofer, it’s really important to block vocals and upper-frequency music from getting to your sub. Marty, no need to respond. I was mistaken about the ohm rating. Two sets lead over to the amplifier (the ones I mentioned previously). I replaced my factory HU and all 6 speakers, 2 pillar tweeters, 2 front door, 2 rear deck speakers. I would guess one RCA to channel 3 and one RCA to channel 4 then from sub woofer positive speaker wire to channel 3 and negative speaker wire to channel 4 on amp? If using speaker level inputs on the amp, use the connections shown above. i have a kicker zx650.4 amp and two 2 ohm DVC memphis m3 12" subs. some of the best wiring kits for the money here. Still have questions? As I mentioned above, most car amps today can handle a 2 ohm load per stereo channel (left & right channels) and 4 ohms minimum when bridged to drive an amplifier (called “mono”). You can sign in to give your opinion on the answer. So I wired the front 2 speakers off the head unit, then I used the RCA Rears to wire the 4 6×9 speakers as you described in parallel using channel 1 & 2 and bridged the sub to channels 3 & 4 like described. You added a 4 ohm resistor to each 4 ohm speaker, then hooked them in parallel to get your 4 ohms. Adding subs to a boat. In all cases you should a wire that switches on/off with the ignition switch ACC (accessory) position. How can I repay you? I also replaced the 4 door speakers with Pioneer TS-A652F 6.5 3 way speakers, and a kicker pt250 BassStation 10″ powered sub. • New front tweeters There’s a good chance the front speakers (amp-driven) will not change in volume proportionately with the rear (radio-driven) speakers when you turn up the radio’s volume. What if I did the rear to channel 1&2? Awesome, thanks. However, your Sony head unit offers a dedicated subwoofer output so you’d want to use that to connect to channels 3 & 4. Kenwood head unit to amp: 2 RCA jacks to 2 Y adapters at the amp: L channel to ch. It’ll also be less hassle to deal with than using only a phone & amp. I might pass on mates Rockford as its 6yrs old & its NOT free lol, I would only be installing front speakers in doors can’t fit any in rear, thats why I was looking for best option for trunk whether it be bigger speakers or Sub, if you could also send some links as to speakers or or Sub that’ll be awesome, keep up the awesome work Marty doing a great Job Mate. If connected properly the issue should be eliminated. So my advice is to try connecting channels 1-4, set the switch as mentioned, and see the results. You don’t have to repay me, but I do appreciate that offer. What gauge speaker wire do i need for two twelve inch speakers to a 1000 watt amp? If you wire 2 speakers and the tweeters at the same time it will end up with less than 2 ohms total speaker load, which isn’t ok. • Option #3 may or may not work out. I’ve used some like these over at Amazon. I would like to buy a 5 channel amplifier, to get sound to 4 speakers and one subwoofer. Not to mention your speedy replies. How do I connect sub? I would have NEVER tried that. 5 channel amps nearly always have a provision to get the bass (subwoofer) signal from the main channels if you don’t have a separate subwoofer output on the radio. In that case, unfortunately, you’re really limited. I got one off of eBay for under $100 new in the box. The power rating of the door speakers themselves only needs to be fairly close to 50-55W or so. When you wire the subs as shown in the diagram below, the total impedance will be four ohms. Otherwise, there’s a good chance the amp would have to be turned down to match the head unit’s more limited output. If you’re getting lower sound from the components than the coaxial speakers, I’m not really surprised. As I mentioned at the beginning, if you’re using a 4 channel amp to drive both 4 speakers and a subwoofer, you’re going to have to make compromises. Should I also bump up the wattage of the other two resistors for the 6 X 9’s to 50W 4 ohm? 4 channels, 4 subs on 2 channels, tweeters on 2 channels, Two speakers! Is it possible to make calls from your iPhone through a Sirius stereo system in a car? I’m very glad fast response from you. I am SO grateful. Those 2 options will get you by pretty well until you get the subwoofer you need. Thanks Marty. I wonder how I can connect the front speakers together with their tweeters (wich an in-line crossover in their wire). If you want a more specific recommendation let me know. Hi Jordan. (I’m assuming you’re using the low-pass subwoofer output from the Kenwood but I’m not sure). then a wire from the pos. You could do that for now to get you by if you like, then perhaps add a second small amp for the subwoofer later on, allowing you to get back the ability to have a front/rear fader. I have got 2 Sony Xplod subs. So, here are my thoughts: Gift card? Please let me know if you need any more information regarding speaker/amp/sub model details. I also want to connect the remaining 2 channels to my midrange speaker.My question is…is there any possible way to know the output power of the remaining channels.I really don’t want to fry my mid range speakers. Shown: An example of how to measure speaker impedance (Ohms) with a multimeter. Hmm, that’s an odd issue you’re having. • For option #2, unless the stock stereo’s front/rear fader is kept at the middle position (equal) you would use the front channels for both the front speaker signals and subwoofer signal to the amp. Regards Neil. Thx! Never connect both the speaker level and RCA jacks at the same time – speaker level signals can damage your head unit’s RCA outputs. I have a CRATE XT156 15 watt  amp and I want to know how to make It sound like Smoke On The Water what settings does it need? Hence, once you connect all the four speakers to a 2 channel amplifier, you can push all the speakers to their threshold limits without the fear of … I'm a car audio fanatic and degreed electrical engineer. please tell me if i have bought the wrong equipment or if it isss at all possible to make it work. If it were me, however, I’d just leave off the rear speakers as you’ll probably find them to be overbearing without a fader control. Seems like it shouldn’t be that complicated…but I’m stumped. If in series (amp - to - 1st sub, + 1st sub to - 2nd sub, + 2nd sub to + amp), you get 8 ohm load. Otherwise, set it to the lowest setting like the 10 Ohms or 200 Ohms range, etc. You get more power and more efficiency- for subs that is. Then wire these two together at 1 ohm to a stable amplifier, and you're set with some good power. The little amp can’t run below 4 ohms. I’m leaving the factory unit in there. Hi Ryan. One more question. of the second sub. For typical amps that’s around 50W-100W/channel for a 4 channel amp. I really appreciate your expert opinion. Would like to make it work if possible although realize the 8 ohm subs would not be anyone’s first choice. So cut 2 lengths of speaker cable for each side (left and right). For your amp you can just set the 2/4 channel amp switch to the “2” position, then bridge 2 channels and set the low-pass crossover. What would be the best combination to get best sound output and “left to left/right to right” sound effect? Of the three choices, I think #2 and #3 are the ones you’d (most likely) be happy with. It’s a great way to know for 100% sure what kind of speakers you’re dealing with to avoid problems with your 4 channel amp. Currently planning on installing the following in my daughter’s 2001 Silverado Ext Cab with factory speakers; As a general rule, though, divide the RMS power of each channel by 2 and use that as minimum resistor power rating. – For sure, make sure all the speaker connections are wired the same way (each speakers positive and negative connections are the same from the amp) or you can have cancellation which hurts the sound a lot. It won’t hurt anything but 8 ohms subwoofers are best suited for home amps & not car amps. I tried disconnecting the input signal from the amp and it goes away. Step #1 – Choose the # of subwoofers you will wire in your system from one amplifier output. Does this mean that the amplifier supports 4Ω and 2Ω connection? There are plenty of detailed diagrams to guide you, too. Bluetooth amps are better for motorcycles, boats, and so on where you don’t have as many options. Join Yahoo Answers and get 100 points today. Thanks again! They don’t add much excitement to the system. If you’re having problems with the left to right stereo signals, then it sounds like either the RCA inputs or speaker connections (or both) are incorrect. I have an additional query if you don’t mind. Yes is mono and the second terminal isnt for a second channel only so you have more room to connect wires. That’s something useful to keep in mind. The 3rd goes toward the front of the boat away from the amplifier. That should be enough in most cases: Not totally silent in the rear, but most of the volume towards the front speakers. Love the period look but it’s almost inaudible after 40mph due to the road and wind noise so need more volume. Personally I would recommend spending $50 or so for some good quality silk or metal dome 4 ohm tweeters instead of using the TS S20s. However, as crazy as it sounds, some speakers don’t! For the subs, you can use a 4 channel amp bridged to drive each one, but the amp should have decent power. This is a great place to use a 2-channel amp. Today’s head units offer Bluetooth, music app controls, EQ functions, and much, much more for under $100. Usually that will not cause a problem (at least it shouldn’t at regular listening levels). I would recommend only using 1 tweeter in parallel with 1 speaker in that case. Hi Steve, yes you can do that if you like without any issues, aside from the volume which you’re already aware of. So do I cut the factory speaker wires after the harness then go into the scosche and so on. Get answers by asking now. Will this be fine? Unfortunately there’s some trial and error involved since the information is poor. Worst case I would just run it at 2ohm until I get different gear. depending on the rating of the amp and the rest of your system, you should probably go the 4 ohm direction (or trade in your amp if your hearts set on running a 2 ohm set up good luck. It’s 4 channel with only speaker line out (no rca). Hey Marty! I’ve already done the work for you, and here’s a great example. I’d love to hear from you and make this post even more helpful. It’s hard to say more without more info in this case. Cheers, Bill. [..] . Left channel to front left, rear left. My best advice would be to forget about using the original radio for several reasons. That’s 80W for the 6x9s and ~50W for the tweeters, according to the specs). this Metra 99-9000 kit I use for installations. The amp is 4 ohm, and the current 6X9’s are 100W RMS @ 4 ohms, but the new speakers are 60W RMS @ 3 ohms(though Infinity states “they have come up with a safe way to get a little more power out of your system – these 3-ohm speakers combine with the speaker wire in your car so your car stereo sees actual 4-ohm impedance”). Hi Stephen. Upon further inspection of the radio unit, I see 4 sets of RCA coming out. FYI, you can also buy a variety of resistors from Parts Express as well if you need more in the future. Hi Stu. That should take care of it. However, since a few amps out there can’t handle 2 ohm loads (especially older amps you might have that you’d like to use) I’ve included this just in case. Here are the speaker wiring and speaker (Ohms) loads possible for nearly all amps you’ll run across. JVC KD-T710BT :). Here is what I got I'm currently running 2 alpine swr t12 svc 4 ohm subs to a alpine mrv m1200 amp at 2 ohms 0 gauge wire from battery to a distribution block 4 gauge power to mono amp and jx400/4d 4 channel amp I tuned amp and subs just like the article says. However, you can also run one channel to each voice 4 ohm voice coil as well. It’s easier than using crimp (“butt”) connectors or other methods, plus you can change it later if you need to without any problems. In this case, you should be able to connect the line-level adapter to the Kenwood amp’s speaker outputs to get a signal if you like. – Infinity Dual-coil Subwoofer My question is, in my 2016 Malibu Limited LT, I’m replacing the tweeters, 4 door speakers with 6.5 or 6.75 woofers, 6x9s full range in the rear deck, and adding 2 twelves, should I use 2 amps: Then bridge the rear channels and use the low pass crossover. I’ve read also, you can connect capacitor to kill the base. Ch A – Connect 2 front speakers I think I understand the use of resistors, but wanted to double check before ordering. Yes that’s right, or just use a wiring harness adapter so you don’t have to cut the factory wiring. Basically paralleling the RCA inputs like speaker output. I would like to use this to run 2 hidden 75W RMS component speakers with separate tweeters (including crossovers) from one channel and then run a passive sub in the trunk from the other channel. Check out my post with some of the best wiring kits for the money here. So i originally had the 4 Channel amp in the car the Clarion XR2420 Running just the extra Sub woofer in the trunk. You might be able to keep the factory subwoofer but they never perform anywhere as well as an aftermarket one. I recently picked up a Kenwood KMM-BT522HD and there are a number of other Kenwood KMM head units you can find out there. You’ll get far better sound & volume that way for your effort. Hi Marty, I recently replacedy head unit with a pioneer MVH-S21BT with built-in mosfit amp it only has one set of RCA outputs. that will give you a 4 ohm load on the each bridged section of the amp wich will allow that amp to function properly and to run cooler and not go into "protect" mode. They work great and look good. (Assuming you have RCA outputs and you’re not using speaker-level inputs on the amp, which is another option you have too). The 8 ohm subs aren’t optimal but will get you by for now until you are ready to swap them for something decent in a 4Ω model. They’re also a great buy used too. You said ch.5, but I do not have 5 channel ☹️, let me know if I fail to understand it correctly. Hello there & thanks for the feedback, Joe. I bought a Pioneer GM-A4704 and planning to connect it to my 2012 Hyundai Elantra stock stereo. – The subwoofer is *probably* fine, but it’s always a good idea to play music on a speaker to be 100% sure it’s working to eliminate that as a possibility. Any suggestions on how to set those?and one more thing sorry. 2. 160 watts RMS x 2 bridged at 4 ohms (4-ohm stable bridged). A speaker’s impedance value, measured in Ohms, is just the total measurement of electrical resistance the amp will see from the speaker’s voice coil. That’s especially important because subwoofers are big, heavy speakers that need more power than small speakers to produce the bass sound you want. I’m not sure which amp you have but here’s how: 1. Also, I have a 4 channel amp and a sub and i want to have 2 front speakers and i sub. Yes, that’s right, in this case I would play it safe and use a 5 ohm or a 4 & a 1 ohm as those are often easier to find when shopping. Hey Marty. What is best way to connect RCAs to Amp? input switch that shouldn’t be needed. Replace the original radio with an aftermarket one (this is harder and may require cutting the dash), or 2. use an underdash kit like this one from Metra to allow you to add an aftermarket one fairly easily. Many thanks for your thoughts on this. The biggest one that comes to mind is losing the front/rear fader control. Hi Saptarshi. It may be that my 2 subwoofers are unable to be wired at the correct impendance for my amp. Ch B – Connect sub More info here http://spkrbox1.spaces.live.com/, paul is right but be sure when you connect the sub in series you connect the positive of one coil to the negative of the other coil. I am 48 and no stranger to connecting amps and subs. or should I run it UN-bridged with two seperate sets of wires from the Amp's sub channel with one of each going to only one of the voice-coils on the sub? If yours doesn’t, you’ll need a work-around I’ll show you. Hi Jeff. However, if the amp has a high pass crossover built in that’s better for a number of reasons. What crossover settings should I use on my 4 channel amp? Most of the stuff online is either not enough or just plain BS that a seller would write. Furthermore, i haven’t Bought speakers for the front or rear yet. So for example, I might have: - Left speaker on Channel A, L+ and L-. Jason. Hi George! It will depend on (1) the amp’s power output capacity and (2) what the amp’s gain is set to. Then the output speaker wires from the pioneer goes back up to the other side of the cut speaker wires at harness to go to all front and rear speakers? The best thing to do for most of my customers was to use an under-dash kit like this Metra 99-9000 kit I use for installations. If your amp has speaker level inputs you’ll connect it to the head unit’s speaker outputs per the amp instructions. That way you can safely drive each channel with a 4 ohm load even older amps can handle. There are 6 RCA ports. but i am lost when its coming to wiring the speakers to this amp. Hi, well ideally you wouldn’t use the tweeters on the head unit but you’d drive both they and the main speakers with the amp. Most amps would need to be connected to a signal for the rear channels also but since yours has a 2/4 ch. It is just a steady low hum which goes on and off. In your expert opinion, which of the following would you best suggest? Hi Marty, I have a old Sony MEX-BT2500 deck. Thanks for your help. Regarding your question, a Google search resulted in this: “The SLC-4 is the EXACT same things as the FAI-3… its just that one is almost exclusively sold in Wal-Mart, while the other is available to all retailers.”. They’re packed with a ton of controls including a 13-band EQ and good sound. Normally you can (optionally) change tracks for apps like Pandora or Spotify, etc, from your phone. You may need a few extra parts. • Two 12″ subwoofers (Not sure of the impedance). It’s a 96 Honda Accord Good question, actually. It sounds to me like I’m over doing it. I like my 1989 vintage car audio, and it currently sounds great, but I was interested in adding two more speakers to a 2 channel amp. Not competition-level, but good enough to enjoy. That model doesn’t need a remote-on wire usually as it has auto-sensing for the speaker inputs. Does anyone know the best way to wire up the subs, should I use the 4 channel amp for the subs? Max power output…80W x 4(4 Ω) / 130W x 4 (2 Ω) / 520 W Total ( Bridge ) I would say to wire up the rear speakers and see what you think since it will support a front/rear fader in 4 channel mode. You can find power resistors at Amazon & eBay. Slide the wire through until you reach the glovebox or the opening underneath your glovebox where your wires feed into your vehicle’s interior. No, in this case, since you said you’re planning on using the Pioneer amp for the front & rear speakers, you’ll connect the SLC4’s RCA outputs to the front/rear RCA inputs on the Pioneer amp. – This is probably an issue with not having a signal to the last 2 channels (5 & 6) where you would have the subwoofer bridged Rockville RVB12.1A 12″ powered subwoofer. won't sound too good especially worse with the lack of bass you're going to have. The GM-D8604 has plenty of power so there’s no need for bridging. The GM-D8704 has speaker level inputs built in that will let you connect directly to the speaker level outputs of the Sony head unit. If you connect a speaker load below the amp’s minimum rating it can get hot and even become permanently damaged at some point. That amp will run real hot at a 2 ohm bridge, so what you need to do is wire those voice coils in "series" then bridge the 2 channels to each sub. R channel to ch. Amplify sound. Hi Eben. By “2 P/O” I assume you mean 2 RCA outputs, since you didn’t list the model number. Run the speakers in parallel on channel 1&2 and bridge channel 3&4 to power the sub. :). And I’m feel so relief. Then you can just run an RCA cable from the RCA outputs of the Pioneer amp to the 2nd amp, called “daisy chaining” them sometimes. Thanks. If I were to upgrade anything would it be the subs or the deck? I usually use ch. 2 channel, 4 channel, even 8 channel. Hey Marty, Following the example I’ve provided here in the diagram above it’s pretty easy. When I wrote “ch. You can find one for around $100-$120 or so, and they’re pretty good. Below is the specification of the amp. An amp wiring kit like this one will make your life easier! If I treat these as 3 ohm speakers, should I add 25W 2.5 ohm resistors to the circuit to get my 4 ohms to make the amp happy? Thanks. The result will be that the sound is “faded” to the front and the rear speakers won’t be too loud. You’ll need to pick up some 15W-20W (or higher) resistors. Be sure to touch bare metal on the terminals and make good contact. so can i wire them to higher ohm. That would mean I would have to add a 5 ohm resistor to each 3 ohm speaker to get the 8 ohms/ halved if hooked in parallel to get the 4 ohms. Image showing a typical 4 channel amplifier’s minimum speaker load (Ohms) rating. [..]. The best thing to do in my opinion is just disconnect the coaxial speakers. • Front tweeters + front door speakers -> front amp channels Shown: Example of a 4-channel amp bridged to 2 channels. Sorry! 75 watts RMS x 4 at 4 ohms (110 watts RMS x 4 at 2 ohms) – JBL Co-axial (rear) I have a Pioneer GM D8604 amp, a pair of 6×9’s TS 6965v3 (450w peak) and a pair of TS S20 Pioneer Tweeters (200w peak).
