Installing Subwoofers in a Car

Judging by the fact you haven’t installed anything before, you have a small amp and an 8AWG wire will be fine. First time installations are always made easier by buying an amp installation kit, that way you have everything you need in one place. For future installations this lets you know exactly what you need. It includes a remote wire that you hook up to your head unit that sends an extremely low voltage current signaling it to turn on when the head unit is also on. I will only say this once – don’t buy a capacitor. If you want to keep your stock head unit you either have to make sure it has at least one pre-amp outlets or you will have to buy an amp that will accept amplified signals. Yes you will need to connect your power wire to the battery and yes you will need to fuse the power wire within 3 feet of the battery, closer the better, unless you prefer your car in melted form. You also need to fuse any power wire any time it decreases in size. All holes need a grommet.

Best way to hook up a subwoofer with dual voice coils?

Then run power to your switch and ground it. Put an inline fuse on your data cable if you want. DuzzleKid ok yea, thats prolly where i messed up at. A-Ray Why would you need power to the switch? What you did the first time should have worked.

Identification A mono amplifier is a single channel amp designed for low frequency sound reproduction, such as the deep bass produced by a subwoofer. Instead, a mono amp can be used to deliver power to a single signal speaker, typically a subwoofer that produces low hooi sounds that can be felt as much as heard. The mono amp produces a single power signal which is ideally suited to the low frequency design of a subwoofer. Function Since it can transmit only a single audio signal, a mono amp is not suitable for stereo music.

This enables a mono amp to deliver efficient power watts to a pair of subwoofers rated at up to 4 ohms each without the need for a second hook up 2 subs to mono amp. Using this methods u can run more then just 2 amps as demonstrated. Advantages A mono amplifier is stable to 2 ohms, meaning a mono amp can resist that measurement of electrical current.

hooking up subs and an amp to factory cd/casset player

September 3, I did this upgrade awhile back, but have been really busy and never got around to posting. I know there’s already a topic on the K2’s Bose system, but that one discusses models with the bench seats. My upgrade was done on an SLT with bucket seats and factory Bose sub under the center console.

Aug 13,  · But today with all the modern amp technology, if you buy brand gear, you will get sound that is at least as good as the amp/speaker alternative and it’s much simpler and easier to hook up. Also since you now have two amps for two speakers, if one unit dies, you have a second one to keep you going, so built-in redundancy.

how to hook up subs and amp?

These mistakes can range from simple problematic issues to things that could quickly lead to premature device failure. Let me quickly explain why. Every cable has inherent resistance. The thinner the cable, the more resistance the cable will have. There are other factors as well, but this is the big one. The more resistance a cable has, the more it will affect the frequency response which is possible at the end of the cable run.

Mar 20,  · Installing Amp and Subs in Maxima. jasonphd. , PM. and unhooked the wires that go directly to the sub. then i hooked up the wires to the unhooked factory sub terminals, that worked for me and the rest of the speakers work fine. jasonphd. , PM.

Next If your subwoofer doesn’t have an internal amplifier , you’ll definitely want to connect an amplifier to it. To do this, you’ll need your subwoofer, an amplifier, at least one set of RCA cables these are the red, white, and yellow jacks on a single cable , speakers , and speaker wires. First, you’ll want to think about where you’ll keep the subwoofer.

Because the subwoofer is working mostly on the bass the low tones , it doesn’t require as much directional pushing as speakers do. Since you’ll have to run cables and wires between the subwoofer and other devices, you might want to keep it just a few feet from your screen. Keep Reading Below To get started with the actual hook-up, you’ll connect the subwoofer to the amplifier using the RCA cable.

If you want a stereo hook-up, you’ll need two sets of RCA cables. Connect the subwoofer output to the amplifier input.

How to Wire an Amp to a Sub and Head Unit A sub woofer or two in a vehicle can make the world of difference in listening to music. It is very important to match the RMS of your subs to your amp. You want an amp more powerful than your sub, because you don’t want your sub to clip. Clipping is the number one reason of bass distortion.

Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) is a service we offer sellers that lets them store their products in Amazon’s fulfillment centers, and we directly pack, ship, and provide customer service for these products.

All you’re talking about is trying to allow the “Beat” to hit the same point in front of it as I am. The difference is that you’re suggesting that some LOW end be eliminated from a speaker that designed to take a full range signal. Why would you not use the speaker for it’s entire purpose? In some cases you have a Folded Horn sub, which would cause the sound to travel longer vs. That “phase” issue that you are talking about would be an issue if he had a SET of subs working against another set of cabinets that supposidly would put out enough bass to possibly cancel each other out.

The only way they would cancel each other out, is if one set is “Pushing” and one set is “Pulling”. But back to this person’ setup. They already have a Full Range system that is working.

Will my car amp power my speakers and subwoofer?

Thank you Keith, i think i got it. Looks like i hooked the “tower” four speakers to two channel Sony amp. For some reason two wires going from “L” post on the amp power Right two speakers and two wires going from “R” post on the amp power Left two speakers. Probably just a matter of swapping some wires. For native 4 channel amp that i want to hook up to 4 in-house speakers and two subs the amp’s manual calls it Tri-mode operation wants me to insert “high pass filter capacitors and a low pass filter inductor into the wiring”.

No idea what that is and do i really need it.

I purchased a sub enclosure kit for my silverado i came wit 2 w subs and one w BOSS single amp. (CEM) the company i bougt it from said i was safe to hook bot of them to the amp.

While each system is different and unique it is usually made up of three components: This system is mounted in the car dashboard and will probably pose you the most difficulty, especially if you are installing it from scratch. You may find that you will need unit mounts and connectors to get the DVD player to be seated properly. Installation of this type of system requires a lot of re-wiring and, if the edges of the DVD player is too big or too small for a non-standard stereo space, you may even need to remodel the dash to make sure the unit fits snugly.

Check the dimensions of your dashboard slot before buying your new car DVD! You are probably going to need to run wires from the player to the speakers, any auxiliary input devices you might want to run such as rear view cameras or bluetooth handsfree kits as well as running a wire to both ends of the emergency break cable as its illegal to be able to operate the screen when the car is in motion unless its using a rear view camera.

You will also need to wire the car DVD player to the power supply. Connections, wires and mounting brackets are always needed, but not always included. Installation of this system is similar to that of the 2 DIN player. To install this type of car DVD player you will probably need wire, screws, glue or some other adhesive. It then can be run under the carpet to the main car unit in the dash, or to another connection box in another location.

When mounting the overhead monitor you will need to install it in the middle of the car for ultimate strength. You will then need to conceal the wires wires underneath roof panels, running them from the player to the dashboard or power supply. This will require a lot of work as panels, the car’s kick plate and even sometimes the seatbelt will have to be removed.

How To Hook Up Two 4 Ohm DVC Subwoofers @ 1 Ohm On A Mono Block Amp

But what the manufacturer is not showing you is the bandwidth vs. Quality of bass and how well it integrates into a system is paramount. If I have to sacrifice a bit of extension and SPL to achieve this, so be it. The Set-Up I left my EP towards the left front corner behind my couch as it has been for the past 3 years.

Mar 12,  · there is a remote wire on the smaller plug on the bACK of the bose radio used for the factory amp. its the wire on the outter side of the plug the right side i beleive. i dont remember what color it is. i used that for my line out.

I have a good amp already and just need a new box for my subs. Would I have to run a wire from each rear speaker to the amp or just one? And I’m guessing it’s just a matter of splicing the wires together correct? No special connection needed? I’ve set up a system in all my vehicles previously but I was always adding an aftermarket head unit which made it a simple process.

Both left and right speakers and u can either splice in or there r these connectors that I really wish I could remember what they r called but they create a connection n all they do is have like a needle go through the insulation and hit the actually speaker wire. The wires u splice into also speaker wire go to a box which give you the RCA output u want to send audio to the amp. DON’T get the cheapest one! The amp will control power levels, frequencies and such as well as of the stock radio, which is nice.

If u have all the supplies including wiring, some shops will do it for free, or will charge a small fee, isn’t too much.

Can you hook 3 subs up to a 2 channel amp?

The maximum positive- and negative-voltage capability of a power amp is limited by the power supply’s limits, i. The amplifier can produce so many volts positive and negative at its output. The audio signal essentially swings between the positive and negative supplies within the power amplifier. These voltage rails are also referred to as the DC Direct Current supply. Power in watts is equal to the voltage produced by the amplifier times itself and divided by the rated loudspeaker load.

Jun 06,  · Yes you can hook up a amp & sub to a stock bose radio? My friend just got a new accord and shes using her stock radio. Go to a real radio shop and they’ll hook you up or call around and they’ll tell you the same : Resolved.

So what will we need to do this? But I doubt any of you guys will be using an amp that big. Walmart sells amplifier kits as do some other stores. The kits tell you how many watts they can handle. Add Tip Ask Question Step 2: Choosing an Amp and Speaker This can be a tricky step. You want to choose a speaker and amp that put out the most power, without blowing each other. What you want is the RMS of both the subwoofer speaker and the amplifier to be as close as possible.

The RMS is the amount of power a speaker can continuously have sent to it without going bad.
