Speaker installment (wiring 6x9's)

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:

Rear Left
green + to Big Spade on speaker
green/black - to Small Spade on speaker

Rear Right
purple + to Big Spade on speaker
purple/black - to Small Spade on speaker

do i need to do this..if i do how to i put speaker wire into the existing ones

also if u could...not entirely sure what crimping and splicing is :S

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.

OK let's try this I have cerwin vega mobile audio speakers 2 pairs vega369x 6x9 @ 75 rms 4ohm and 1 sub 200 rms @4 Ohm want to wire them to a planet audio 1600watt 2Ohm 4ch amp


Your can go down to 2 ohm but will take 4 fine wire your 6 x 9 s to one side one ch each and bridge the sub across the other 2 channels.

I have 2 pioneer 6x9 400w, pioneer GM 6500f 760w amp and a kenwood KFC W1012 sub, how d i get the best sound from these?


pioneer gm 6500 is a 4 ch amp rated at 60w-4 way to small of an amp to run your sub. UNDER-POWERING your sub is more likely to damage spkr than over-powering. my advice,get mono-block to run sub

I replaced the 2 ohm 6x9's in my buick with the monsoon amp, with 4 ohm 6x9's. After i put the speakers in, almost no sound came out. I've read that you can wire them in parallel from one...


If you did wire these in parallel to get the 2 ohm load, you will loose your balance. Also, you may have to bridge your amp.
To do this, go from the positive of the amp to both positives of both speakers. Then from the negative of the amp to both negatives of both speakers. If you have a 2 channel amp, you will have to bridge it. Note, make sure your amp is 2 ohm stable.

hope this helps

Hi i just got 2 new infinity 860w reference 8'' subs 250 rms each and pushing it with sony 600watt amp pushing it but very low sound and no bass why the othier speakers i have in 10'' hit the bass fine but...


The amp may no thav eenough to push these subs, these are top of the line subs, they probably require a bigger amp, if you are running other speakers through this also, you certainly need another amp, or a bigger one with more channels. also double check all your wiring.

I need a wiring diagram from car stereo to 2 x 6 " x 9 " and a sub woofer please


You can connect the two 6x9 speakers to the two individual left and right outputs of the car stereo.
Connect each of the left and right channel with the correct polarity . Now the Sub-woofer requires an amplifier to be connected separately and so you need to use the car stereo to be linked to a sub woofer amp which powers the sub woofer.

Why does my 6x9 amp drop or not let the sound play at all when my subs are on? it just started to happen? they worked together fine before. i turn the subs off and the 6x9 work? but when i turn the subs on...


You probably have too much hooked up for the size of your power supply which is presumably a small car battery. You either need to get:

A) New, better bigger battery.
B) Capacitor in series with battery.
C) Both of the above.

You can go to checkers or auto zone and they can assist you with purchasing a tool that is designed specifically for pulling the fasteners that hold the door panels snug to the door frame itself-or you can use a good sized flathead screwdriver to do it and if any get damaged you can get new ones at the same stores to replace them-as far as the 6x9 speakers go you can most likelyjust plug them in parallel wired to the amp or at the speakers but it will drop your ohms a little(resistance) assuming that the speakers that are already in the vehicle are all 4 ohm speakers wiring the 6x9s parallel with a set of them would give you a 2 ohm load per channell at the amp-most amps today are stable at 2 ohms so it should be fine
