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

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.

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

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....

No sub signal from a CDX GT520.


connect the speake(sub) directly to the stereo(just use one of the rear 6x9 speaker wire to test the sub and make sure it's not the amp. if it does not work, it's the sub

SPEAKER CONNECTIONS


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

Jensen Amp and Sub


If you followed the instructions correctly, then the amp must be defective. This is sort of simple.

My generic suggestions:
You have the power, the ground, the outputs to the speakers, and then the input.

Make sure that none of the speaker wires are somehow being grounded. Make sure that nothing is shorted that feeds the speakers.
