Re: Wiring speakers to a Saturn

At least make sure you do it systematically to keep all the speakers in phase. E.g. if one wire is solid and one is striped on each speaker, connect to the same points on the speaker each time, chances are then they should stay in phase.

Re: Wiring speakers to a Saturn

Well, you're in luck. Speakers really don't care how you hook them up so long as they're hooked up. I assume you are replacing the factory speakers with aftermarket, not adding anything new to the system. If that's what you're doing, it'll be a whole new experience. You won't believe your ears, and you won't believe your car could sound that good. More power to you

How do i wire my kicker dcvr122 up to a 4 ohm amp

I am going to assume the 2 speakers in the sub are each 4 ohm loads, and are wired together in parallel, creating a 2 ohm load. And your amp pushes 800W at a 2 ohm load. And actually goes down to 1 ohm/1100W. Anyway...

Seems you want to lessen the wattage output of the amp by making a 4 ohm load. To do that, you need to wire the both 2 ohm speakers in SERIES.
In general wiring principles, to wire in SERIES, take the POS terminal from the amp and wire to the POS terminal of first speaker. Take the NEG terminal from the amp and wire to the 2nd speakers' NEG terminal. Then place a "jumper" piece of speaker wire to connect 1st speakers' NEG terminal to 2nd speakers' POS terminal. Now you have a 4 ohm load, and will be pushing 450W from your amp.

This way the load will now be 4 ohms.

Does anyone haven a wiring diagram for a quad 4ohm voice coil subwoofer?

Basic wiring dictates that with a speaker with 4 voice coils all at 4 ohms each is meant to be wired in parallel. This will put the load at a 1 ohm total load on the amplifier. Wiring in parallel is positive out from amp to pos. to pos. to pos. to pos.. And neg. out from amp to neg., to neg., to neg., to neg..

Need speakers for a 2001 Saturn L300

Your best bet for replacing with OE components, without going to a dealer and paying their prices, is to visit your local salvage yard and pull them out (if you can do that). My local yard only charges $4 per speeaker, regardless of size or specification.

Aftermarket replacements will require some wiring to the extent that you'll need to change the plug-end on your existing speaker wiring to female blade terminals that will plug onto the aftermarket speakers. The speakers will work well with your OE head unit, though. There is no need to replace anything other than the speakers and the wire connectors when upgrading your audio components for replacement purposes only.

I don't have the information for speaker size in front of me, but I can find it if you need it.

Wiring color coding For RS tweeter

Different manufacturers use different wiring. Usually the striped is positive.
An easy test is to take a battery (from a cordless drill) or a 9V, and touch the neg + pos to the correct terminal of the battery.
If the speaker pops OUT, it is wired correctly, if the speaker pops IN, reverse the wires.
