Installing subs, how to use rc converter

I'm installing an 800 watt amp and two 12s. i bought a converter to rc to connect subs to rear speakers. there is supposed to be a rear factory sub and there is not, but the wire is still there. can i connect to this wire? or to the left and right speakers. i dont want to amplify the other speakers, just the subs im installing. do you have any advice on installing my subs?

    i would like to add that everything worked as i said above, but the remote wire cannot be used from the factory radio. the remote wire has to be connected from the amplifier to a fuse that turns on and off and not having steady power. other than that, everything was a piece of cake. mizcheechee

From the rc converter i connected to the rear speakers taking both positive (left and right) to the positive on the factory speakers, then done the same with the negative (left and right) to the negative of the factory speakers. i connected with a quick connect. then from the converter to the amp using rc's. since my battery is in the trunk, the only wire i had to run through the car is the remote wire from the radio to my amp and then my subs to my amp.

I am trying to replace all the factory speakers in my 2003 mountaineer i think there is a sub i want to run all the aftermarket speakers to an aftermarket amp if there is a sub can i also run it to a amp...


no problem with replacing all speakers with ones that are compatable wth you new amp .. and that means the the speaker impedance has to be wtihin the range of what the amp can drive (like 4 ohm, 8 ohm, 16 ohm) .... the subwoofer needs inputs from both left and right channels .. it also needs its own amplifier and low pass filter .. this all may be built into your after market amplifier .. if so you will have an output marked sub (that will directly drive the subwoofer) .. or you may have a low level outdput marked sub that goes to your subwoofer amplifier if it has one .. .. sometimes the woofer has its own built in amplifier and filter .. it then just needs power and inputs from each channel .. since you are running 500 watt speakers, they likely already have a subwoofer component .. (speakers that extend down to 20 hz or lower .) if so, you may not need an additional sub-woofer .. just make sure all the speakers are phased correctly .. (wired to work together not fighting each other ..) .... an amplifier capable of driving 500 watt speakers can draw peak currents that are very high .. so power wiring would have to be very heavy and preferably go directly to the battery with an inline fuse right at the battery ..

I have blown-up my JBL rear woofer 86160 - 26W and 3.7 OHM. I am having difficulty finding the exact same woofer again and hence wanted to know is there a replacement i can use. I understand the meaning of...


I just replaced my blown sub in my Avalon xls with a Kicker 07C84 and it works great. For the same price of a repair kit, you can just buy this new speaker. Why go through the hassle of repairing a 9 year old speaker. This speaker fits into the same cutout of the old speaker. All I did was splice the red and black wires within the factory plastic housing so I could still use the factory connector.

Install two 10" subwoofers in a 2002 grand am monsoon.


The only way to Correctly do this is to Run an External Amp for your Subs. If you continuously run the Subs off of the Factory Amp It will Ruin the Subs and the Amp Eventually. This way you can still Connect the Rear speakers as they need to be. Please Rate my solution, I need all the Help that I can Get! Thanks!

Rear door speakers don't work w/ aftermarket radio in 94 suburban


You need to attach the blue wire on the stereo harness to the blue and white wire on the car adapter harness. they installed a small amplifier to power the rear door speakers and unless you connect those two wires then the speakers will not work.

Speaker level converter


Is this meant for hooking up an amp and still using your factory stereo head unit? If so, you only need to use the four speaker wires. Go into the trunk and tap them into the rear speaker wiring per the labels on the converter's wires (right and left, plus and minus). Then plug your RCA cables into it and connect them to the amp.

How would i add amp and sub to a factory stereo system


You can't hook it up like an aftermarket stereo, but there is a piece of equipment (cannot remember what it is called right now) in which you can hook regular speaker wire up to it and it converts it into an RCA jack connector.
