Question about JBL LC-S960 Car Speaker

1 Answer

Speaker installment sorry, wasnt very descriptive before... i do have 300watt amp with two subs wired into it and thats all working also the standard car speakers sound good enough but i have a pair of 6x9's i put in parcel shelf already and i wanna wire them in. my brother could do it in seconds cos a) its all his old stuff b) he has done it 100 times before for pretty much everyone but he cba with me :| so...i have 4m of speaker cable and the spade parts to connect to the 6x9s but im unsure whether the wiring from the speakers should run to the existing speakers or the head unit i read on this site that i need to connect the left speaker to purple/black and all that cant find page again and i wrote down but left in car and i cba to get it... but i understood that and if this is correct in my case i wanted to know how to switch the wires also if u could...not entirely sure what crimping and splicing is :S cheerz

I would run a 250-500 watt 2 channel high input capable amp.  run the original wires to the orginal speakers and jump off the original wires to the amp to push the secondary 6X9's you have.  So my understanding is.  you want the 4 original speakers and subs and add 2 additional speakers making 6 speakers not uncluding subs..
Head units care barely push 4 decent normal size speaker.  Usually they are 30-55watt per channel.  If you have 2 non sub speakers that are 250 watt max.. that's 500 total but don't push the amp all the way...start with it at 1/4 and listen to your stereo at a higher than nominal volume slowly turning up the amp.

    also...your spade connectors are attatched to the wires by crimping..need a crimp tool.  Splicing is just twisting wires together held by tape or wire nut.  at least use a wire nut.

Where can I find the connections the go on the back of the stereo


Usually behind the stereo in the console. Either a square or rectangle in shape. You can obtain adapters for differing units that allows the use of the original wiring harness without rewiring. Just a simple plug and play option.

My ripspeed incar dvd player has got no picture but has got the sound what can i do to make this work


First thing comes to mind is a possible update to the system. Have you had it for a while now? If so, you should go to the computer and go the maker of the unit. Check under software updates or downloads to see if there has been a remedy or fix that the maker has published, if so...then do as it says to do and see if this resolves the problem before you get into the actual technicals of the unit. It may need nothing more. I hope this helps.

All you can do is trace the wiring back from the radio to the speakers, there is no quick fix here. To test the speakers touch a battery to the two contacts, the speaker will pop if it is any good.

Disconnect all speaker connections and rca cables. Leave power, ground and remote wires intact. Try turning on again. If you still have a protection light your amp is faulty. Hopefully you have warranty. Double check all connections .A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you.

RCA CABLES


RCA cables are the best way to get the audio from your head unit to the amp. If your head unit doesn't have RCA outputs, you might be able to use the speaker outputs of the head unit to connect to the "high power" or "high level" inputs of the amp, if the amp has such inputs (check your manual).
