What Kind Of Car Amplifier Do I Need?

I bought a speaker box for my car that has 2 subwoofers and 2 tweeters built into the box. What kind or what channel amplifier do I need to make this speaker box work? I need an amplifier that will make the tweeters work as well as the subwoofers. The speaker box says it is 800 watts. It is 400 watts RMS. Any help would be greatly appeciated. Thankyou very much.

A kicker amp with full range out put that has a switch for the range you most like. do not go over 400 watts rms or the tweeters will blow.

The six 1/2 speakers are your woofers,connect the positive and negative wires from the speaker to the 2 connections labeled on the crossover as W(woofer)+ pos and W(woofer) -- neg,hook the tweeters to the crossover connections labeled T(tweeter)+ pos and T(tweeter) -- neg,then hookup the 2 remaining connections labeled Amp to your amplifier,amp must be 2 or 4 channel stereo capable and give out enough power to properly drive the speakers so they achieve optimal performance.

Hello, my problem is when I insert a CD(mp3), the Subwoofer gets disabled and only the speakers works. However, when I use only radio, the woofer works fine, it's only when I play CDs. My receiver is new...


it sounds like you are using the blue wire (antenna remote turn on) instead of the blue/white (amplifier remote turn on) wire to turn your amplifier on.

I have the stereo except for speakers sony SA-H7900. what to do


hi ,
as far as i understood you, you need speakers for the stereo mhc-h7900? so the originals are the sa-h7900, active (built in mono amplifier) and they have electrostatic tweeter plus some special kind of bass-control system called i not remember now. in this case maybe impossible to find some, but you can connect any kind of "active" speakers, even a crappy active 2+1 subwoofersystem would do it to get a sound out of it.

please be advised you need the crossover that came with it, or you will need an active crossover dedicated to an amplifier to run these.

two channel will do with the same power power rating of your speakers ex. your speaker is 500 watts per piece so you need to buy a 500 watts per channel amplifier

How do you install dome tweeters?


tweeters get installed almost like any other speaker. you pick a mounting spot, then mount them, or cut the hole for recessed tweeters, etc. run the wire to the closest speaker wire from your stereo, and just splice it in. you will however need some kind of crossover to prevent the low frequencies from being played through the tweeters. if you buy new tweets, they usually come with their own crossover, or there are a few different styles you can get.there are the passive crossovers, the ones that look like small boxes. there are also the inline filters. these are the ones that you splice into the positive speaker wire to filter out the low frequencies. and some aftermarket stereos come with some kind of filter or equalizer built in, depending on your model. what I would do is buy one of the inline filters for each tweeter. theyre inexpensive, and easy to install, and they work great. so basically, just mount the tweeter, run its wires to an existing speaker wire and splice it in, and install an inline filter on the positive wire for the tweeter. oh, one last thing. if your interior speakers are powered by an amplifier and not by the stereo, then just run the tweeter wire to the speaker outputs on the back of the stereo. too much power will definitely destroy any tweeter. good luck!

Im not sure how to hook these speakers up


answer depends on what kind of Ohm Load your amplifier is capable of as a lowest allowed setting. ie if you have a 1400W at 4 Ohm amplifier, the connection would need to be different than a 1400W at 2 ohm amplifier. also, on the speaker what is the rated ohm load per coil since it's a quad coil speaker (should say somewhere on it's box, or in it's manual. I'd assume 4 ohm per coil) we'll do that math after you get those figures in to me.
