Question about Alpine DDW-F30A Car Speaker
I'm putting in new rear speakers. I have taken out the rear seat backsand popped off the shelf. Then I placed in the new brackets to allow me to fit universalspeakers and screwed in the speakers (to the brackets). However theleft rear speaker has a large connector block which i have never seenbefore with about 6-8 wires attached to it. This will not fit the newspeakers (they only require 2 wires). However the rear right side does fit the car as it only has 2 wires. How can i fitthe left side to the speakers? P.S i also hav a new head unit
The large block is a factory amplifier - in your car (as was in mine) you had a partially-amplified system. The front speakers were driven at speaker level from the head unit, but the rears were fed a line-level signal from the head unit to the amp, which then boosted to speaker level. The harness then sent the speaker level signal to each rear speaker.
What you can do is fit your new head unit. The fronts will interface perfectly with no issues. For the rear, run new wires from the adapter harness at the back of your head unit, back to the new rear speakers, and connect them directly. Then everything will work as it should.
