Question about Jl Audio E6450 Car Audio Amplifier
I have the e6440m jl amp,an 8" jl sub, 2 tweets and 4 mid size jls. they came out of a boat but i want to put them in mw 98 tacoma. Im mentally challenged to say the least i know but is that gonna fly? and if so, i thought i could put the sub behind the pass. seat in the cubby beneath the fold-up seat? is there hope or is it a lost cause?
Sounds like it should be an easy task (fitting the sub), but you will have to make sure that the JL 8" woofer has at least 1" to 1.5" in front of it to enable the sub cone to move freely (without obstruction). JL also offers a range of "ready made" sub enclosures on thier website (including kits for Tacomas), which could give you a good idea on mounting options.
The amp and speakers came out of a boat? That should be no problem if you plan to install these components into a car. Some companies (eg: JL Audio) have specific models which enable the use of thier products in marine environments, having components less susceptible to corrosion, U.V. damage and moisture ingress than thier equivalent car audio products.
Your JL amplifier part number E6440M has "M" added to the end of it's product name denoting it is intended for marine use, however you can use the same amplifier in a car without any problems at all. The power voltages will be the same, and the signal inputs are designed exactly the same. The only difference is that the marine version will have the added benefit of less corrosion problems :)
Just to make sure that the speakers aren't damaged (from corrosion) before fittment, check the motor and magnet basket assemblies (visually) for discoloration (particularly white salty residue).. These discolorations and residues should be removed as much as possible before fittment to a car environment, so as not to cause corrosion problems to your car later on down the track.

Basically the wiring of the large harness corresponds to the pins like this.
Starting in the upper right hand corner and working down the right side from A12 down to A1.
1=Left rear output-red
2=Left rear output-blue
3=Right rear output-black
4=Right rear output-yellow
6=Left front input-black
7=Left front input-yellow
8=Left rear input-orange
9=Left rear input-green
Back up to upper left hand corner on the large plug
13=Right front tweeter output-red
14=Right front tweeter output-blue
15=Left front tweet output-red
16=Left front tweeter output-blue
18=Right front input-red
19=Right front input-white
20=Right rear input-blue
21=Right rear input-red
23=Right front sub (+) output-yellow
24=Right front sub (-) output-black
The small harness is the same above with the upper right position being pin 1 going down to pin 4 then back up to the top for pin 5 down to pin 8.
1=Memory Power-Lrg White
2=Amp Ground- Lrg Black
3=Left front sub (+)output-yellow
4=Left front sub (-) output-black
5=Left front mid (+) output-white
6=Left front mid (-) output-brown
7=Right front mid (-)output-brown
8=Right front mid (+) output-white
Hope this will help you.
