Question about Car Speakers & Subwoofers

1 Answer

I am about to put my 6x9 speakers in my car. i would like a little advice if possible. it will not be a tricky job as all the connections have been done (by a car garage). all i need to do is put the speakers into some mdf wood and then fix that under my parcel shelf. Do you have any helpful information on what the best way to do this is, i.e. how to secure the mdf to the original parcel shelf. I want to put the speakers underneath the existing parcel shelf for added security. many thanks Harry

Typically the best way would be to remove the interior trim piece from the shelf. Then have a friend hold the MDF board up from inside the trunk. Then run either screws or bolts/nuts through from the interior all the way through the MDF. Replace interior trim piece and it should be held in tight.

Another less intrusive way would be to use a strong adhesive, such as "Liquid Nails" to secure the MDF to the bottom of the shelf. You'd need to figure a way to hold the MDF to the bottom of the shelf for quite awhile (8-24 hours) to make sure their is good adhesion.

I have 2 pioneer 6x9 400w, pioneer GM 6500f 760w amp and a kenwood KFC W1012 sub, how d i get the best sound from these?


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

What kind of amp do i need for 2 kicker ds6930 140 watts peak and 2 ks6930 6x9 watts peak 150 and 3 Kicker KS350 3-1/2 40 watts each peak


600 Watt to 1000 Watt 4 CHANNEL AMP for the four 6X9's and a less powerfull 4 Channel amp thats at least 200Watts to 400Watts peak for the 3 3-1/2 kicker speakers. Because if you try to connect the 3 3-1/2 speakers to only 1 4 channel amp that the 6X9 speakers are on you risk of overheating the amp and blowing the speakers too!!!

2001 EXPEDITON TRYING TO FIT 6X9 IN THE DOORS HOW CAN I MAKE THAT POSSIBLE WITH SAME DOOR PANELS


You can mount them on the inside of the door, a small bit of speaker may be a bit smaller than the opening but that way you can use the same door panel and you don't have to hog out the door at all. Shouldn't degrade the sound quality very much.

I need help on sound built in


u may be able to custom fir the 6x9 into the rear of the vehicle, if you don't want to do that, you may be able to fit them into the spots in the doors, but that still may be a custom job. u could always go with boxes, individual boxes that you could put on the floor on maybe on the back deck where usually the 6x9s would be located. if you dont like that idea, you might try a body shop or electronics retailer because there is definitely a way to fit those speakers in the doors or on the rear deck, it just won't be an easy job for a beginner, you have to cut holes

SPEAKER CONNECTIONS


You can go to checkers or auto zone and they can assist you with purchasing a tool that is designed specifically for pulling the fasteners that hold the door panels snug to the door frame itself-or you can use a good sized flathead screwdriver to do it and if any get damaged you can get new ones at the same stores to replace them-as far as the 6x9 speakers go you can most likelyjust plug them in parallel wired to the amp or at the speakers but it will drop your ohms a little(resistance) assuming that the speakers that are already in the vehicle are all 4 ohm speakers wiring the 6x9s parallel with a set of them would give you a 2 ohm load per channell at the amp-most amps today are stable at 2 ohms so it should be fine

Blown 6x9 subwoofer???


Any speaker will work. It's better if you put in the same kind, but if it's just a stock system it shouldn't matter.
