Question about Alpine CDA-7863 CD Player
I have a alpine cda7863 cd deck in a ford f250 exrended cab truck. I would like to install a Alpine mrv1505 amp to a Alpine 12x sub and A Alpine mrp f305 amp to a set of pioneer 4ways in front doors and a pair of alpine s 6x9 in rear doors( 2way). I also have a rockfordfosgate 1 farad punch capacitor. I have 2 seperate amp insallation kits (one is 2ga, the other is 4ga.) I have built a box out of 3/4 pdx (2.2 cuft) I sealed it with liqued nail and screwed together with sheetrock screws. Do I need to port? Should I bridge the alpine 1505 amp to run the sub? How to wire? Help!!!! This is the first time I have ever wired a system. Concerned GARY
Connect the 2 gage to the battery thru at least s 50 amp fuse, then connect the capacitor in line before the amps. Then run the 2 gage to a connector/splitter block and run 4 gage leads to each amp. You also will need at least 4 gage ground leads from each amp to a body grounded bolt or screw. You need to run a quality set of speaker leads from the head unit to the amps. The speakers will need separate leads from the amp to each speaker.You will need to try some different combinations to get the sound and bass you want. You want to be able to fade from front to rear and control everything thru the head unit.
Use a hole saw to cut a 2 to 3 inch diameter hole in the side of the speaker box for a port to get a better punch from the sub.
Hope this helps some....
