Your amp might now have enough power to push the subs or you need to get a better amp kit that will deliver the power the amp needs to operate at a high spl lvl

Sub static at low volume fine at high volume


Prob always there just can't hear it at higher volumes. Check the grounds of the amps an the Caps if you have them. Then check the preamp wires from the head unti to the amp. Keep it as shielded from power wires as you can. Some times tying a ground from the amp back to the head unit ground can fix a hiss or static

5channel amp 6 speakers how do i wire amp to speakers. channel 5 is a sub channel which i do not have my amp is a polk audio pa1100.5


if it is a 5.1 channel amp wire the center speakers together into the same port. wire the two front speakers in the or der that they would appear on the amp (such as left front speaker to the left front speaker terminal on the amp etc.) and do the same for the rear speakers. and all you should have left is the sub-woofer channel in which you do not have to worry about.

I installed a Pioneer DEH-P800PRS head unit and 4 Kenwood KFC-1662S speakers in my 2003 Dodge Dakota extended cab truck. I used a Kenwood KAC-5204 2 channel amp connected in parallel. Sounds good at lower...


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!!

I do not know what sub woofer and speakers you have and how they are installed, don't change the JL Audio amplifiers, they are very good amplifiers. Also amongst others, I have been using Kenwood in my installs for many years and believe them to be one of the top brands for head units. The unit that you have is a good, very good unit, honestly. In a nut shell, the equipment that you mention are all top class and if functioning correctly, should not be the cause of your disappointment. Low quality cables, bad installations or even incorrect tuning, are often the guilty party in cases such as these. You could fill me in on what else you have and what kind of box the sub woofer is in and what car they are installed in? Search for the source of your disappointment somewhere else. dreamsystems.

Hi, you can split the preamp RCAs with Ys available everywhere. The amp input impedance shouldn't cause much load on the head unit. Let us know if you have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.
