Pioneer gm 6500 is a 4 ch amp rated at 60w-4 way to small of an amp to run your sub. UNDER-POWERING your sub is more likely to damage spkr than over-powering. my advice,get mono-block to run sub

SOURCE: how do i hook it up

On the Sub you have 4 connectors, 2 for each voice coil... Run a jumper wire from One side of the sub to the other. Positive to negative so that now you have one set of connectors free. Doing this will make the sub able to handle more cause you're using both voice coils. Thats how i've always hooked mine up when i have duel voice coil and they always last a long time. If you're gonna bridge the amp, make sure its turned down for about 5 or 6 hours to let the sub break in.

That amp can run at 1 ohm so if your subs are dual 4ohm then run in parellel. All positives will be conected together and the negetives and then run to the amp.

Hello.... sorry to hear about your problem. Bass is the ultimate evil of coaxial speakers. You have a couple of options here, and this is just my professional opinion because I do not know what your lifestyle details, such as truck space needs, type of music you listen to, budget, etc. If you are looking for alot of bass, the best bet would be to use 2 external amplifiers, 1 for the interior speakers, and 1 for a subwoofer. You would then need to purchase an electronic crossover. With this setup, you can remove all of the low frequencies from the coaxial speakers and put them where they belong, with the sub. You will gain EXCEPTIONAL clarity and a very high volume before distortion level. Again it will depend on what your budget is and if you are willing to compromise on some cab space. The only other option you have at this point is if you are wanting to play your music at high volume levels, you will just need to reduce the bass level as you increase volume. I hope this has helped. Good luck with your venture!!

Wiring Kenwood KFC-W3003


If it's a single voice coil, it's probably 4 ohms. the sub only handles about 175w RMS, so don't expect earth shattering bass to come out of it. A single voice coil is easy. Positive from the amp to the positive post of the sub, negative from the amp to negative post of the sub. This sub sounds lots better if it's in a sealed enclosure. A ported enclosure allows too much cone movement, heating up the coils, and the sub fails prematurely. Hope this helps.

You might not want to do that. The 760W Pioneer amp might require larger wire due to the power consumption of the amp. Most amplifiers require a direct wire from the battery to the amp. The power wire for the factory amp might not require very large wire and if you tie into the power for that amp the fuse could blow and wiring in your car could melt or catch fire, The best installation is to run the recommended guage wire from the battery directly to the amp with a properly rated in-line fuse.

Usually an 800 watt peak sub would be a 400 watt rms. Hmmmm. Anyway, just bridge the amp (1x 380) nd keep the gain up enough to stay clean. Watch the sub and turn up gain until it starts to distort, then back it down a hair. Do this with the CD players volume up 2/3 to 3/4 volume with the BASS and treble at zero (bass better at minus 4 or so if you are a bass head! Hope thishelps.

Speaker type


I posted a comment on your other post not nodicing this one. But commenting on the choice of amps, It would all depend on what the model number is on the pioneer amp. Also it would depend on what kind of sound you want. Could you get me the model number of that and double check your model numbers for the kenwood sub and amp. The amp that I show when I googled it was rated at 250 watt at 2 ohms no where near 1000. so if I have the wrong amp let me know, I would like to help. Thanks

Red light on my amp?


Does the amp power up normally if you disconnect the speaker wires from the speaker terminals of the amp?

It's never a good thing to blindly short across a power source.

It should be better to use the Pioneer GM-7200M Amp with your subs.

For 8 ohm setup hook up this way:
Amp out+ to Sub1 +
Sub1 - to Sub 2 +
Amp out - to Sub2 -

For 2 ohm setup hook up this way:
Amp + to Sub1 +
Sub1 + to Sub2 +
Amp - to Sub1 -
Sub1 - to Sub2 -

hi there. ill start with the wiring. you should have a blue remote lead going to the back of your head unit, the power cable running straight from the amp to the battry, the earth should be earthed in a fairly decent place, any metal inside the car realy, and then your wires pos and neg from the amp to the subs. the reason why the kenwood might not have much base on it is to my knowledge, there should be a switch somewhere on the amp that will increase or decrease the power input for the speakers, if this is set very low then hense why theres not much base comming from them. if the amp is on and its giving something to the subs it probably isnt the wiring. try checking the amp for the switch first, if you cant find it try the pioneer amp and see if theres any diference.
dont hesitate to contact me if you get stuck


cheers, adam
