Right i think i understand what u mean so cheerz for help so far
but i have a 300watt amp already fitted and i was thinking of switching existing rear speakers for my 6x9's cos my head unit does 4x55watt output
so, can i take the wires going into the existing peakers and just connect them to the corresponding sides of the 6x9's?
i suppose i could splice the wires together? dont have soldering iron and im sure ill get over a bodge job aslong as all wired up.
i just wasnt sure whether i could do that and just connect existing wires to new wires then connect to the 6x9's?
if doesnt make sense ill try explaining better, bit of rush atm cos gotta go out
thanks for help tho...getting a better understanding which is awesome

Re: same as before
That is correct. I would solder if you cant make the connectors. they should have two diff sized spades on them.(usually) I would definately get a crimp kit with crimpers and asst connectors to start. Also make sure your amp has adequate gnd and large enough power wire with an inline fuse right off the source. I can make a diagram for that too if you need.

GRD is ground, or negative, B+ is battery+ or positive, REM is remoter turn on and is used to turn the amp on. Most aftermarket radios use the blue/white wire to turn an amplifier on. On rare occaisions where there is just a blue wire, that would be the wire to turn your amp on.
For your kenwood subs, depending on power and i think i know these, the amp I would get is a small D class amp; KAC8104D. check it out on ebay; they have it new for a great price, and I would get the other woofer.
well if you hear a rattle sound its probably already blown...and the amp could be drawing too much power if the radio shuts off...make sure all your wiring is correct. also if your car is off and you turn it up it will most likely shut off cause the battery cant handle it. but as for the sub i think its blown. good luck
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.
Actually, the way they're wired they're already bridged in parallel. The way they're "jumpered" They all get the same amount of voltage and pull more current from your amp. If you wire them in series, each speaker only gets 1/3 the input voltage, and in turn, the entire circuit of 3 speakers uses less current from the amp, meaning less wattage. Having them wired in series will cause less wear and tear on your amp, but you'll not be pleased with the output. It'll be very weak. Try it. You'll notice the difference right away. The way they're wired is the way they're probably supposed to be from mtx, and the speakers probably have a higher resistance, which means they work best when bridged parallel in threes. Your amp is already taking all the punishment thease speakers can suck through it in this setup. If your amp is running cool, you shouldn't have any problems. Hope this helps.
