Question about JVC CS-HS601 Car Mid-Range
I have 3 10" MTX thunder 5000s in one box. As is the box is wired with the power coming to the center speaker then each of the outer speakers have "jumper" wire connecting them to the center...I was thinking it would be better to wire them in series (or thats what i'm told its called) by going from the amp to a speaker then crossing the pos. and neg. to the next speaker and crossing once more to the last. Is this a good idea? Will it give me more sound out of my woofers without too much punishment to the amp?
by the way is a pioneer 760w amp
It depends on the resistance of the speakers. They are probably 8 ohm speakers. When wired parallel they will not put a heavy current load on your amp.

Actually, the way they're wired they're already bridged in parallel. The way they're "jumpered" They all get the same amount of voltage and pull more current from your amp. If you wire them in series, each speaker only gets 1/3 the input voltage, and in turn, the entire circuit of 3 speakers uses less current from the amp, meaning less wattage. Having them wired in series will cause less wear and tear on your amp, but you'll not be pleased with the output. It'll be very weak. Try it. You'll notice the difference right away. The way they're wired is the way they're probably supposed to be from mtx, and the speakers probably have a higher resistance, which means they work best when bridged parallel in threes. Your amp is already taking all the punishment thease speakers can suck through it in this setup. If your amp is running cool, you shouldn't have any problems. Hope this helps.
