Question about JBL LC-S960 Car Speaker

Open Question

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

SOURCE: speaker installment

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.

I have two 12 inch Kicker subs and a 1500 watt Boss amp. i took them to a car shop to see if they work and the guys said the wiring inside the box had to be replaced. they thought that the negative wasnt...


there are only 2 wires going to each speaker inside the box, one of them will have a stripe on it, make sure that the stripe wire is on the positive terminal of each speaker,

Why is my sub heartbeating and my amp in protection mode


Sounds like a shorted speaker wire. Try disconnecting speaker from amp and see if protection light goes out- if so replace bad speaker wire. Only other issue i can think of from your short description is that you might have a bad ground going to amp or the remote power wire is bad. try running a new ground wire to a clean metallic spot on you cars chassis close to where the amp is located. Good ground = good clean sound

Amp burned out but fuses still good?


this is caused by inproper wiring from the speakers/subs to the amplifier.. an amp will still put out power to subs and speakers when it's wired improperly but it won't last for very long doing it... 6 months is longer than usual....

hi, your amp seems to be getting power but the cables might be wrong so it's not getting enough power. the light on the amp should be green if everything is going well. are you sure the cables are suitable for your amp?
