Question about JBL LC-S960 Car Speaker

1 Answer

Same as before

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

    cheerz for help, i got them working now

    i didnt put through amp, just through same wires for old rear speakers then connected to 6x9's

    sounds so much better and i dont think it would be worth the hassle to connect to amp

    goes loud enough and the mid range is so much better

    thanks for help tho, made it loads easier :)

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.

    Good to hear it!  I just got through wiring in a 2500 watt amp 1.5 farad capacitor and two 12" Audiobahn DUBS!  It rattles my little pathy.  But it's perfect for the 1 hr commute to and back from work.

Hi. I was just looking over the amp i have. Its a Boschmann 2500FX,300watt I was just woundering what the: GRD, B+ and REM stands for. If you could help me it would be good Thank you

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.

Hi, i wanna know how i can get correct and good withe balance in many different place under sun and beside wit filters change ?thx advence

i think youre trying to ask how to create a good balance, but im not sure what you mean. theres a balance of bass to treble, and theres a balance of sound so yu dont feel too far from any speakers.

balance between bass and treble can be done with tuning the stereo and the amplifier gain.

balance so you dont feel too far from a speaker, most people get more speakers, or run a 4 channel amp to their speakers to make them louder.

Have a 300watt amp on some kicker subs is there anyway to get more power or do i need a second amp

No way unless you are able to bridge the amp. Check the gain level too, you can turn it up but woudn't recommend more then 3/4 of the way.

What would be the best amp for me

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.

Do you know if my woofer is blown?

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

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.

Best wiring method

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.
