Question about Tomtom GO 700 GPS NAVIGATION BRAND ONLY $9.95 SHIPPING

1 Answer

Speaker wiring I have kappa infinity 6.1 splits, and a coustic 241se amp, the speakers are rated @100watts rms and are 4ohm , the amp can drive 2 speakers @ 60whatts per channel @ 4 ohm, or 2 speakers @ 2 ohm @120 whatts per channel. Is it wise to wire these speakers 2 ohm x 120 watts, because I have heard having more power than required is preferable to under powering a speaker, and is there any degradation to the sound quality, going the 2 ohm way. Thanks Geoff

No degradation. The smaller the ohm, the better the signal ( least resistance ). You and your system should be fine.

I have 2 sony xplod 4ohm subs rated 350w rms and 1200w max, i have them in really shallow boxes because i drive a single cab toyota, i know these subs **** but i do also know that they can hit alot harder...

the premier amp is better since it has a better rms rating (360w total or 160w each sub) than the eclipse (280w if you bridge all 4 channels which isn't possible but 140w for each speaker bridging 2 channels per speaker). Neither are going to push your subs but if you get another amp wiring kit and use one amp per sub they will sound a lot better and you could just hook both power wire and ground wires from the bridged channels to the power and ground terminals for the sub. That would be my suggestion since the subs are rated at 350w and each amp is 280w and 320w which will push but not blow the subs.

That all depends.

I have a Sony Xplod Sub, also 12" and 4ohm, and it is a 1000w sub.

But my friend has sub that is also 4ohm and yet it is only 500w.

The ohm mean nothing when trying to figure out the wattage.

Try for more info (site will not load for me)

I have a 2002 Chevrolet Camaro with the Monsoon stereo system, The front speakers take four wires. The Infinity Kappa 62.7i were the perfect speaker, but they stopped making them. I do not want to put...

one of those wires on your speakers is the common ground for both sets of wires in your camaro, Just take the negative wire from both sets of wires and run it to the single wire on your new speakers. The other 2 are positive from each wire. good luck

How do I hook up my infinity 1600a at 2ohms with 2 4ohm speakers?

Placing the speakers next to each other face down, you will notice that the connection points run in sequence +- and +-. Now connect the - (negative) from the one speaker, to the + (positive) of the other speaker. Now connect the open + from the one speaker and the open - from the other speaker to your amp. Your amp should have a bridging indication. On the connection points of the amp, you should see a mark pointing to the first + and the last -. That will be your bridge and thus utilizing the full potential of your amplifier

Car Ampli Problem

forget hooking this on a subwoofer. this amp produces only 50 watts per channel at 4ohms or 70 watts per channel at 2 ohms RMS...
If you try bridging the sub, it will only give out maybe 100watts bridged.
So..... if your sub is, lets say 1000watts RMS, youre just going to bust your amplifier to smoke...
Find a more decent and powerful amp. This amp is only intended for separates and lowend subs with an RMS of 80 to 150 watts

I have a 50x2 amp that is bridged 100 into a 4 ohm load. can i run this to a 6x9 3way speaker rated 100rms 4 ohm

Yes, you can. There's the impedance match between amp and speaker (4ohm to 4ohm).
The only issue I would say is that if the amp is putting out 100 watts RMS, then you wouldn't want to drive the speaker to the max, because it's rated at 100 watts RMS max, and at louder volume, it will start to distort and possibly blow from fatigue. Other than that issue, it should work fine.

Infinity 1211a @ 2 Ohms

Hello monkey_flea, Your subs will share the amp output. And if you are not careful, you'll end up blowing them. The amp puts out 1300 watts RMS at 2ohms, the subs have an RMS power range of from 75-350 watts, and you'll be driving them with 650 watts each. A better power match would be to series the subs to present an 8ohm final load. This will reduce the output power to a level the subs can handle. Or you could buy 2 more 12.1's and connect them series-parallel for a 4ohm load and each sub would still be getting 325 watts RMS, just about the maximum they are rated to handle. Hope this helps.

Power rating

If the speaker can be wired to be a safe load for the amp, it's OK.

Unsureness of wiring configurations.


Get an amp with at least 200 Watts RMS. The RMS value is what is important about driving Subs. This could be proclaimed to be a 1000 Watt amp. REad the RMS value.

Wiring. It is better to series your Speakers to give them and your amp more reliability,

Get a Mono or Bridgeable amp. If it si bridgeable, BRidge the output as described in the manual you get. Some Amps have a diagram right on the output..

AMP+ to Sub1 +
Sub1 - to Sub2 +
Sub2 - to Amp -

Get a 4 Guage wring kit. Run your power wiring down the Drivers side, and Audio signal wiring down the Passenger side, keep the two separate.
