Question about Sony NTX-2135 DHD 2 Channel Car Amplifier (600 Watts) Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

I just need to know if the 2 channels from the amp go to the front or rear speaker location on the stereo and if they go to the rear do I hook up the rear speakers directly to the amp and the fronts to the stereo?

    I knew alll that but the problem is always the same, you have a 2 channel amp and a 4 channel system... so , since the front speakers are smaller and cannot handle the wattage its obvoius I would tone down the wattasge to them through the amp but, if Ive only got 2 channels Ive got nowhere to put 2 more unless I buy another 2 channel amp or , i wire the fronts with the rears, then I have no control and no fade..... so a solution would seem to be... put front speakers to stereo and rear speakers to amp and pray that you can fade good enough to hear all four. Which also seems a waste of money because you'll be back where you started. so, because I'm an electrician and not a technician my only real solution would to be ... place front and rear left to one channel, and front and rear right to another, then Ive gotr no fade and no control over how many amps push those lil 3" pyle drivers...???

    ty, that's the solution i had in mind as well but just wanted to allow someone who knew about these things to give me advice and it is right on track. I have a hard time wodering why companies make things that are not functional or practical for many applications, and would think that sony would perform and fabricate an amp that has 2 channels set up for the rears and 2 channels set up for the fronts, allowing the customer the ease of making an install time shorter, adjustment time would auto and none needed, and all functions would work as they should without installing another device to do it... customer would have adjustments ( that came with his or her unit ) at their fingertips and not have to get under the seat every time another song came on...

    but Ty for your help keep up the good work... I didnt spend a penny on this whole thing, so it is worth the price to spend the time...

The only thing that hooks to the stereo are a remote cable should be labeles on the amp. and the rca cables (red and whites) the different channels go to different sets of speakers.right to right left to left. make sure your amp is grounded well or you'll throw the fuse. Hope this helps if you have questions contact me.

    Only logical thing I can think of for you to do is to only wire the fronts directly to the stereo and let that push those. hook the rears to the amp and you should be able to make it sound decent by playing around with the settings on the amp. Most amps you can level those speakers right from the amp. Try doing that and turning them down on the amp and let the stereo push the fronts. it's about the only way it will work. most of your sound is always coming from the back anyway as far as bass and low range. The fronts would then only be used for mid and highs which is okay.

PIONEER 300 WATT CAR STEREO AMP WIREING HOW TOO


depending on how many channels the amp is, you may not be able to hook everything up to it.

usually you have a separate amp for subs. 4 channel amp for the speakers in the car, and a mono amp for the subs.

To hook them all up to the same amp you would need an amp with 5 channels. It wouldn't work out right.

If you have a mono amp its only for subs.

If you have a 2 channel you can either hook it up to the rear speakers or bridge them to mono to run the subs.


you need a channel per speaker basically.
