Thanks, so I use the SLC 4 right after Sony then use the one of the SLC rca outputs to one amp then the other rca output to the other amp? Wiring a 4 channel amp to 2 subwoofers. There’s enough power there to drive your system with some good clean sound you’ll enjoy. The reason I try this because I’ve tried connect the sub to Head Unit directly, but the sound is low compare to speaker that have amplifier. – Audior RIP 4 Channel Amplifier. Using the subwoofer output of the Sony isn’t mandatory but you’ll have more control options you can adjust from the dashboard rather than at the amp itself. (I was thinking of parallel a speaker with a tweeter and hook them in bridged mode, but i am unsure whether the wattage will be too high for the tweeters). Say I’m using set up #1. Connect both cables to the left and right outputs on the amp (a pair of cables to the left and another pair to the right). You can wire 1 coaxial to 1 tweeter if they're both 4 ohm to the front left channel and the other 2 2 the right front. :). The noise shouldn’t be present in that case. Always be sure to check your speakers before you wire them to your amp to be sure they’re compatible. I’ve got a 70 Mustang, & will be leaving the original radio in its place to keep it all looking original, I’m looking to put a aftermarket sound system in, a freind has a Rockford Fosgate P400-4 punch I can have, I was hoping to run a sub in the trunk & replace to front speakers with decent ones, can this amp be installed & possible adding a bluetooth device while using my iPhone as the head player, this way I’m avoiding installing any head unit, or would I need to buy a different Bluetooth amp, any suggestions or hep in which is best way to go would be greatly appreciated If connected properly the issue should be eliminated. While there are several ways you can go about it, wasting gas, time, and getting stressed out isn’t worth the headache. They’re available in 2 channel and 4 channel outputs. – Infinity Components speakers (front) Good question, actually. 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. 5” that was a typo (error). Kenwood head unit to amp: 2 RCA jacks to 2 Y adapters at the amp: L channel to ch. I may replace the factory amp with the JL Audio JD400/4. Hence the outputs could NOT be bridged. Also, I have a 4 channel amp and a sub and i want to have 2 front speakers and i sub. The sub is obvious enough. Thanks. As most modern car amplifiers include very nice optional crossovers, for good sound it’s smart to take advantage of those. In the case of a car amplifier that can’t go below 4 ohms per channel, there’s no other way. Would there be any difference? Yes you can use that amp and use a Bluetooth receiver, but the ones that will work ok for car use are generally not that great sounding. 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, it’s worth a try to see what you think & if it works for you! You would wire it according to the factory wiring colors (you can usually find these online) and match them to the amp’s speaker wiring labels. Some factory systems make it hard to find a +12V standard wire. I usually use ch. Hopefully the 10″ speakers will sound like you hope; if not, you may need to get some dedicated subwoofers and/or a better amp with a low-pass crossover. Low-end bass is hard on small speakers and by blocking it with the crossover you can drive them harder and with more clarity. Connect the ch. This is the first and best choice for most modern 4 channel amps. You don’t have to repay me, but I do appreciate that offer. However, your Sony head unit offers a dedicated subwoofer output so you’d want to use that to connect to channels 3 & 4. – 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. Hi Ken. Here’s a suggestion to start with regarding the front & rear speakers: As the Civic is supposed to use 6.5″ speakers, here’s a 4-speaker set of Polk DB651 coaxial speakers with silk composite tweeters that will give very nice sound. The good thing is that all you really need to know is roughly what the resistance of a speaker is. : Use only ONE of the two connections shown. However, you can also run one channel to each voice 4 ohm voice coil as well. Thanks for your reply. For 4 ohm speakers, use a 4 ohm resistor. I recommend a model with adjustable level outputs (PAC and Scosche make some very good ones). I recently picked up a Kenwood KMM-BT522HD and there are a number of other Kenwood KMM head units you can find out there. A bridged 2-channel amp can provide plenty of power at a reasonable price. Sorry if its been asked already. Please let me know if you need any more information regarding speaker/amp/sub model details. I’ve used them many times for speaker problem-solving. :), So Im planning on upgrading my 2008 CIvic SI stock system. 1 & ch. I’ve seen this happen when people try to “get more power” by incorrectly wiring speakers to an amp. Hello, Shubby. 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. That takes a huge resistor. If I consider doing Option #1, will it be fine considering all my speakers are rated 4Ω. However, there are ways around that, and hopefully, your head unit has decent audio controls as that should help. It’ll also be less hassle to deal with than using only a phone & amp. Here’s an example of a good budget powered subwoofer: Rockville RVB12.1A 12″ powered subwoofer. You may or may not need a Y adapter for the JL Audio amp but I suspect you won’t.

Is FAI-3a the same as the SLC? – There’s another option: Use the front and rear channels for the 4 front and rear speakers, then pick up an affordable powered subwoofer. The Pioneer’s internal circuitry scales down the speaker level signals to line level. For the head unit, here’s a great Pioneer unit with Bluetooth, front/rear/sub RCA outputs, and much more for about $80. Never connect both the speaker level and RCA jacks at the same time – speaker level signals can damage your head unit’s RCA outputs. That sounds great, Steve. I’ve used channels 5 and 6 to bride the speaker wires coming from the subwoofer. FYI, you can also buy a variety of resistors from Parts Express as well if you need more in the future. Good morning, Doug. Great info sharing – appreciated! sturdy thanks to screw something up with a change turning them on and stale. As I explained in the article, that allows us to keep the speaker load at 4 ohms total when using 2 speakers in parallel. I edited your comment down to the essentials as it was very long. The amp is 4 channel. Right channel to front right, rear right. Bridge each subwoofer to 2 channels, one on top, one on bottom, and you will get more wattage. All in all, yes, if you get a good one a 5 channel amp is a great way to power your whole system (plus it’s easier than installing 2 separate amps).

Let’s get a few things out of the way before we go any further. I’ve seen a few instances of odd problems when using speaker-level inputs, however, so it’s not unheard of. The idea is to get “pure” bass sound as that’s what subwoofers are best suited for: Just purely producing great-sounding bass you’ll love. Have a good day. You can sign in to give your opinion on the answer. – 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. So, here are my thoughts: I recommend avoiding speakers with mylar/plastic dome tweeters as the sound just isn’t as nice as those with a better tweeter. I’m very glad fast response from you. The problem with that, however, is you’re giving up 2 channels that could be used later for a subwoofer or other speakers.

My car Audio configuration is as below: Would I need to have a RCA y from the radio to the amplifier? (Assuming you have RCA outputs and you’re not using speaker-level inputs on the amp, which is another option you have too). Worst case I would just run it at 2ohm until I get different gear. That being said, don’t worry too much! 4 channel amps are great and have a lot of flexibility for the most part. 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. My best advice would be to forget about using the original radio for several reasons. :), Amplifier model: Auditor RIP 4280 You can still connect a head unit car stereo with only 2 channels (left and right) to a 4 channel amp easily. I would set the output levels on the SLC4 to about 75% and see how that works out for you. Most of the stuff online is either not enough or just plain BS that a seller would write. I can’t stress enough how important it is to be ready to install your 4 channel amp. Step #2 – Specify 2 or 4 ohm single voice coil OR 2 or 4 ohm dual voice coil subwoofer(s) The Subwoofer Wiring Diagram tool will then display two wiring options with the final impedance at the amplifier. How would the connection radio to amplifier be if the radio doesn’t have a channel output for the sub? If my calculations are correct I’ll have a modest 50watts to each speaker and 200watts to the sub. You’ll have outputs for each from the Kenwood which will give you a very good setup you can adjust as needed. Wiring a 4 ohm amp to a 2 ohm speaker is done often by car stereo enthusiasts.

You can get 160W for your subwoofer(s) by bridging the rear channels, but that leaves 2 channels which can only be 2 x 75W/110W RMS stereo or 160W mono. Ch B – Connect sub Higher is better, of course, but it will sound ok with good subs in good boxes with at least 150W. Most but not all car amps today can handle speaker loads down to 2 ohms. Hi Marty, I have a kenwood DNN990 HD with 3 out rca, 1st- front 2nd- rear & 3rd- SW. also I have a DS-18 gen 1200.4 AMP. Left channel to front left, rear left. The Pioneer GM-D9605/GM-D9705 I reviewed here is a great example. Yes, that amp does support two 4 ohm speakers in parallel as a 2 ohm load, so yes option #1 would work if you think you’re ok with that. Hi Neil – yes if the Rockford works fine I would keep it. If that Amp. I know those were not used previously but should I try connecting those to the amp as well? Hi Steve. Yes you sure can! 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”). That allows you to use a single cable for most of the run, including the crucial portion that passes through the firewall and then to use shorter individual cables to actually connect to each amplifier. Protect your equipment by always wiring properly to ensure proper power output from your equipment. Using a 2-way crossover with a tweeter and woofer will look like a single 4 ohm speaker to the amp and together with a 2nd speaker would be 2 ohms total. Thanks for your help. It’s 4 channel with only speaker line out (no rca). Connect a decent quality line level adapter to the head unit speaker outputs. Well, you’d need a decent amp (and a 2 ohm stable one) to run all 4 speakers and a sub off on just one. Connect the from RCA outputs to the front amp channels then the subwoofer output RCAs to the rear channels. then a wire from the pos. Use a fuse tap adapter to connect a +12V if the fusebox is fairly easy to access. Should I also bump up the wattage of the other two resistors for the 6 X 9’s to 50W 4 ohm?

I’m not sure where to plug those into the RCA ports. 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. Good stuff to know, thanks. 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. I recommend at least 25 watt (25W) 4 ohm resistors. System 1: 2 speakers (parallel wiring) to each front channel = 2 Ohms x 2 + 1 subwoofer wired for 4 Ohms on the rear channels bridged for more power. The good news is that not only can you do it, but it’s also not hard to do. You can find one $75 and under with a ton of power that can drive a 2Ω load (two 4Ω 12″ wired in parallel for example). Honestly, the best thing to do at this point is to get a good quality line-level converter. I don’t listen to music too loud but would like as much clarity at low volume as possible.
