Car speaker sizes

I have a 89 volvo 240 sedan i am looking to put in speakers in the back deck many sites say 6x9 fits but it seems that the info i find with people and volvos like a guy said he chose 5.25 because he didnt want to remove the back headrests. i even looked in the back and there isnt much room to fit a 6x9 , also there is a speaker hole right in the middle it looks more like a 4x10 but i could not find anything on any site about it. so what would you suggest?

6 x 9 Speakers Should fit in the Mounting space here. That Center hole is not used unless you have a Complete Surround System Installed.

    Not Necessarily. I like for all the Power to be Clean and Clear so, I use Seperate Amps for Each Pair of Speakers when I Install. Works Great.

    For the Money and Clarity--Rockford Fosgate is the BEST in Clarity and Bass. They can get VERY Expensive But, They have a Low End Line that is VERY Affordable. I am 36 and have'nt been able to work for a Year due to Back Problems But, I still Bought My amps Not very Long ago! Go To and check out their Selection. Their Customer service is OUT OF THIS WORLD Also! PRICES are Great and they Have Excellent Sales too!

New pioneer FH-X820BS tiny to no sound

Most car audio is designed to push 4 ohm speakers not 8. Any chance the stock radio was attached to an amp that is not powering up with the new deck. Usually you will have a remote turn on wire that signals any amps to fire up when the deck does.

No Problem Yet with Kenwood Equipment. I haven't been able to connect units. I'm looking for the OWNER'S MANUALS for these Kenwood Items: JL-830W Speakers, KD-42RB Turntable, KX-42B Cassette...

Outs go to Ins. Turntable goes to PHONO. Tape Deck goes into Tape REC and Playback. All other inputs are Line Level and interchangeable despite the labeling. RCA cables all.

One speaker pair per speaker post set. Stripped ends of lamp cord suffice. Don't short anything or make any changes with power on.

It ain't rocket science.

You might find manuals at the manufacturer's support site, by using a common search engine or these guys...

How to fit 2 more additional speakers to a standard 2 speaker stereo system each speaker has only 2 wires + & - , is there a anything avalible to branch the 4 existing wires to 8 wires .

You'll either double or half the ohm load if you do this. If you double the ohm load, you'll half the volume. If you half the ohm load, unless your receiver is rated for that load (very unlikely), you'll overdrive the amp and blow it.

Look on the back of the receiver. It will tell you what ohm load it's rated for. Usually, it's 8 ohms. If you are using 8 ohm speakers (virtually all home speakers), putting more than one speaker on a channel will kill the poor thing.

If you want more speakers, add another amp, or get a receiver capable of running the number of speakers you want.

All systems function correctly but there is no sound from the speakers. Radio tuner, CD player, phono deck, tape deck all work, but no sound output.

Have you looked at the manual?

The product you're inquiring about is not showing in your post. Name the make and model first, then we'll look for the manual. Then (maybe) find a solution. You might find it at the manufacturer's support site or these guys...

My friend has a Denon AVR-1801 receiver that is stuck on ''Standby'' and does not seem to want to fully power up. Can you give me some general directions to look before actually shipping it off for some...

Check if none of the speakers wires are shorting.

This is sometimes an indication that the speakers are loading the receiver amplifier. Take the speaker connections out one by one (making sure you mark these with some stickers so that you know where to connect back) . Each time check if it moves out of standby. If not put wire back on.

Good Luck

Speaker compatibility ( Just got this new reciever with 120 volts power requirement of the receiver, but in the philippines voltage standard supply is 220. can i use 110 voltage supply instead? and I dnt...

The most likely answer is no. Unless the power transformer is of the multi tap type and has a voltage selector window on the back panel... Most speakers today have an impedance of 8 ohms. The impedance is all you need to worry about when matching speakers. You can fit 8 ohm speakers to a 4 ohm system, but you cannot fit 4 ohm speakers to an 8 ohm system. It would overload your oputput stages and cause them to fail. It's best to match 4 ohm with 4 ohm, 8 ohm with 8 ohms.etc.

Car audio

Yes you can use the speaker output in conjuction with the rca pre-outs...but depending on the wattage of the amp, there may be a big difference between the loudness of the front speakers over the rear speakers. If you have a 4 channel amp you can put the rear speakers on the amp also and lower the input gain for the rear speaker. Or if you have a 2 channel amp, you could use a passive crossover to filter out some of the bass to the rear speakers since they are smaller, this would help prevent over-driving it is normally too much bass that distorts and blows a speaker. I'm not sure what you are asking about the hi-rear preouts vs the mid front pre-outs. If you decide to use the amp for the fronts you should be able to connect the amp from the front preouts of the deck. Hope this helps.

Auto amplifier

It depends on if you want it to be able to play really loud and really clear. The deck will probably drive them pretty good on its own but when you really crank on some head decks the sound can start distortring.
Wheres the sub it the package?
Get a less powerfull, 50 Watt X4, amp and get a decent sub with a mono amp or they have all in one 4.1 channel amps. To drive the whole system and keep it easy.
Have fun
