Question about Alpine Type-R SPR-17LP Coaxial Car Speaker

Hissing in speaker

I have Alpine type-r spr-17lp speakers running on 50 rms per speaker. My front left speaker has been giving me problems in that it hisses with a high screech usually during a high pitch in a song. It also is affected very badly when someone is talking on the radio. I have had these speakers for 6 months and i would think that they would last longer than that. If u can help i would greatly appreciate it. Also if it results in buying a new speakers what do u recommend. Thanks for the help.

Spr-69 crackling

It may be a bad voice coil. It would make that type noise. If the cone isn't cracked its the coil.

Wiring speakers to 2 ohm for most power

If you hook 2-4 ohm speakers in parallel that will divide Z into 2 ohms. That will pull a lot of power and drive hard the amp.
So if you have 4 channel outputs and had 8 speakers that would be the same. If you have 4 speakers and 2 outputs then 2 per output or if you have an odd number you would have to put one in series with the other 2.
Series means you hook output + to spkr+ then spkr- to spkr+ of the next, while parallel is keep the same polarity across them and in not so much of a loop. I hope this helps.
