Sorry im new to this whole thing. I don't wanna hear that in the truck. To connect your second 4-channel amp's inputs, you'd use Y-cords on the four full-range patch cables coming from the receiver. Most people including car toys etc miss upgrading the ground connection for the battery and rely on the same cable that grounds the rest of the vehicle electrical system. You should look for a dual amp wiring kit.
It's a perfectly safe wiring scheme. One set on one side and one on another. Been talking for quite some time about getting a system. That puts 150rms to each of the 2 speakers. If so how should i wire it? And don't play a lot of distortion trying to get more bass - that'll damage the subs. So my question is should I wire at 2o with 750w to the sub and keep the amp settings low or wire at 4o because the rms rating at 4o is closer between amp and sub? The difference in impedance between your front and rear speakers will result in a volume difference - the fronts will be louder than the rears. The competition between the manufacturers was intense and each one was trying to best the other.
If you want a question answered about a system, you must identify the equipment by brand names and model numbers. You won't have to tear your whole car apart, but you will have to remove the receiver and cut the harness to access each speaker wire. If you want left-right separation for your subs, two mono amps will work best. I am wondering where to mount that in my 2006 Pontiac G6, and where to get the 12 V power source from. Can't wait to hear back from you. How can I hook the three up to get the most power or best sound bass wise? You should wire that equipment together.
If you did this, though, you need to be extremely careful to keep all the polarities consistent and feed the exact same signal to all channels. I think I'd need around 2400 watt amp for this, of would it be better to have two 1200 watt amps? And I have it connected as your diagram shows. Most amplifiers will put out half as much power at 8 ohms as they would at 4 ohms, although not all amps behave this way. I was going to run 4 of the subs down to 2ohm at the amp. To run two speakers, you need to connect one speaker to the front left channel and one speaker to the front right channel and leave the rear channels of the receiver disconnected.
How to add a subwoofer to a factory stereo A lot of folks want to add bass to their system without replacing the factory radio, either because it looks good or is impossible to replace. I was wondering if there was any way I could safely wire them down to 1 ohm or if I should stick with the 2 ohm final impedance? In order to feed multiple amplifiers from a limited number of channels you can use Y-cords - adapter cables with a single connection on one end and two on the other. I just acquired some subs and and an amp and I don't think ill be able to utilize the full power of the subs, but I'd like to get your opinion on how nest to go about wiring. Any longer, you should use 2-gauge wire. At peak demand, this system would try to draw 483 amperes from your batteries and alternator. Would it be safe to run at 2 O for long periods of time on the jx1000? Plus you would get free Tech Support for life.
Is there a better way to wire them up without hurting anything or am I better off eliminating a sub? You can use , changing all 2s to 1. Also, is the age of an amp something to be worried about? Your amp has 2 sets of speaker output terminals, wired together inside the amp, for convenience when driving multiple subs. If you want a question answered about your system, you should identify your equipment by brand names and model numbers. With about 600w rms from each sub i would need atleast 900w rms from my amp to be within the 75% amp power rating. For your subs, you'd ignore the jumpers between voice coils in each diagram and use the switches as described. After identifying the speaker wires, you cut each one and connect the end coming from the radio's output to the amp's input, and the end going to the car speakers to the amp's output.
What is the best way and location to splice into the car with out taking away fro. I had hooked everything up and the sub kept cutting out. Believe they are 1200 watts a piece. If you're only hooking up two speakers, even less. In fact, it is not a good idea to ever wire different impedance subs together - the lower impedance sub will get twice the power of the higher impedance sub, possibly under-powering one while over-powering the other. Well i think my girl got sick of it and for my bday bought everything for me. Would running them separately cut the ohms in half or would each speaker stay at 4ohms? This will cause a voltage drop across the ground, cause overheating of the amps and distortion, as well as dimming of lights and running issues with the engine.
I am unsure on which type of subwoofer would be better for making a system with three subs. I thought i broke em in but im wondering if the cause of this was from not actualy breaking them in all the way. Unfortunately, as it is with most consumer-grade electronics, it will probably make more economic sense to replace the whole system rather than repairing the malfunctioning one. The second speaker output terminal is there for convenience and if you hook a sub to each terminal it would result in the two subs being wired in parallel, cutting the total impedance in half. Safe as in not damaging the amp or sub.
You should not wire different impedance subwoofers together to the same amplifier because the lower impedance sub will get twice the power of the higher impedance sub, possibly under-powering one while over-powering the other. Any dets on wat i can do. To make sure you get everything you need for a successful installation, why don't you contact a member of Crutchfield's Sales Advisor Team via phone or chat - just click on the Contact us link at the very top of this page for more information. Check out for help with that. I understand as of everything including electricity will take the easiest route or take the path of least resistance to release pressure , electricity , steam , ect. Can I wire both subs to both amps in parallel to get 300 watts at 2 ohm for each one? What ohm should i wire at and what gauge of speaker wire should i use from amp to sub? I listen to rock, rap etc, I have always had a trunk and I know when you pop the trunk it sounds bad. You can wire your gear together , just make sure the amp gain is set very low, so no loud distortion ever plays.
I have purchased through Crutchfield all of the wiring, and necessary items when I purchased the Head unit. Any idea's about that or where you went to find out or how you know. It sounds like for your set-up, that's exactly what you did: wired one sub to each set of terminals. I tried everything, different subwoofer that worked in other truck, 3 different amps all go in protect, changing ground location , swapping rca cables, breaker, anl fuse, don't know where else to look. Home system power amplifiers can't drive loads lower than 4 ohms, nor supply enough wattage to drive a car subwoofer.
