I just bought a 2006 Ultimate T3-4075 four channel amp in another rediculous attempt to power 2 boxed Alpine S-Type 6x9s and 2 open Kenwood 6x9s (all 4 200 watts). The power and everything seems to operate properly, but I cant get any sound in the freakin speakers. I expect that once again I have been played by some retard salesperson who really doesnt know stereo equipment. The speakers are 4 ohms, but the amplifier has a 2 ohm impendency. Can anyone explain this problem to me, and possibly offer me some advice on whether or not I should take this amp back and look for another. Thanks for your help.

Just connect both sets of wires from the subwoofers to the same speaker output terminals on the amplifier. Make sure you keep the positive and negative wires together. This is called parallel wiring. The Type E is a 4-ohm, single voice coil subwoofer, so wiring them like this will give the amplifier a 2-ohm load, and the power produced will be divided between the two subs.
The 2-channel Sony is well suited for powering the 6X9's but a monoblock would be better for the subs. The different types of speakers running from the same channel will not sound very good and likely it'll be impossible to get the impedances to match.
You'll want to set the Sony to send higher frequencies to the 6X9's, but not to the subs. You can't adjust the channels individually. So, just connect each 6X9 to one channel of the Sony and use a monoblock subwoofer amp for the subs.
I know this is a very broad statement, but your budget will allow for what you buy. You will want a nice 2 channel 50 watt rms amp min. 50 watts is a lot of power for those speakers and you will be happy. I would recommend if your budget allowed a nice kenwood, Alpine, Diamond Audio or MB quart. Just make sure whatever you buy that it is a low noise A/B class amp. Nothing to special.
Wiring 4 speakers to each of 2 channels, you will need to wire them series-parallel and run them at 4 ohms. If you wire all 4 parallel, the load will be 1 ohm and the amp is only stable down to 2 ohms.
According to your manual, the 201s will deliver 50 watts into each channel at 4 ohms . So it will be supplying about 12.5 watts per speaker which is about what you get with the average factory radio. They will work OK, but they're not going to be very loud.
try reconnecting your rca's from the deck to the amp when finished wire one speaker positive to positive on left channel and negative to negative on right channel then connect the 1st subwoofer. if all power and sound is fine and working turn off power to amp and connect negative terminal of 1st sub to positive on 2nd sub and positive from first sub to negative on second crossing the wires runs the speakers in series another way to try is parralel the speakers wiring by connecting positive left channel output of amp to positive on 1st sub same with the negative then splice positive to positive on second sub and same with negative.
well yeah thats what im doin riht now in my ford taurs what u do is u can hook up your 5x7s and ur 6x9s on ur amp sill have room for a sub the way too do that is get the front speakers off the amp just run the back andsince its a four channlel amp 1 and 2 channel are used for the back and 3 and four are used for thesub of couse u brige the sub to the amp 3 and four are used for the sub hope that helps friend let me no what happens
