Any amplifier u use will make the sub work ( if configured for subwoofer play)

my recommendation is that u use between 400watt rms to 1000watt rms ( the smaller the box used for the sub, the more power you can give it)

please note though that playing at high power levels exceeding manufacturers specs needs someone who knows what they are doing (when it sounds distorted decrees power)

also make sure to match the headunits output voltage to the amplifiers voltage (eg. if the headunit output is 4 volt, then make sure to adjust the sensitivity on the amplifier to be at 4 volt as well)

hope this helps and let me know if you have any other question

- 700rms

Not that good of quality speakers. You would be lucky if they lasted a couple months pushing 700 watts rms.

Sound cuts out

Not a PC Laptop question. Also I doubt you have an 11000 watt amplifier.

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

Hi to everyone. I have a jensen XS - JA485 1500W amplifier pushing a pair of pioneer 6x9 440W speakers and a set of Starsound digital splits for the front. The guys that installed the sound did not set the...

You can't drive a Pinto at 150 miles per hour without breaking it, you need to get more speakers. a possible solution will be to add a 100 microfarad non polar 200 volts capacitor in series with the speakers to cut the low frequency and use a separate sub for the bass.

I want to upgrade my Kenwood KDC-MP435U sound

1. your charging system is your only limitation for watts but you can add plenty without upgrading it. i'd say 1,000 watts max on the stock batter and alternator with large power and ground cables of at least 4 gauge.

2. yes. using your subwoofer rca outputs.

3. for a subwoofer you should always ad an amp. i'd say a 3-400 watt amp is fine to match up with you kenwood speakers. you will need a small sub to fit in there or maybe one slim enclosure behind each seat with slim 8" subs
