Question about Car Speakers & Subwoofers

1 Answer

Speaker problems I have a 2002 Rav4 with a factory instal head unit and 6 speakers. I replaced the door speakers with Polk Momo 6 1/2 inch speakers. when I turn the volume up high the back speakers crackle and get no sound and the front ones go to an extreemly low, no tone, volume. The rear speakers have crossovers and the fronts don't. when I turn it down and back up again it stops.

Re: speaker problems

I would make sure that your speakers are wired in the correct phase.. positive and negative are correct.. if they are out of phase they will cancel each other out giving you no bass

My factory car amp does not allow the front door speakers to play highs can I connect those two speakers directly to the head unit connection and have the rest of the door speakers run through the amp ?

That will not work. The reason is frequency response. There are high and low pass filters installed on speaker systems. The reason is that no one speaker can handle all sound ranges. The other thing is that high range speakers are not high wattage speakers because they don't have to be. If you hook the high range to the straight feed from the amp, you will blow them out really fast.

Factory bose speakers wont run on a normal stereo

Im sorry to tell you, but they are telling you the true. Unless you have the factory Radio that comes with those speaker they are useless to you unless your car is the same make as the one that those speaker came out of. Each speaker have four wires coming form them? If they have only two wires on them you can use them in series with other in your home theather system.

The door speaker went out on a 1998 dodge ram , what is the factory watt type and can i put a larger one in.

Hi. Putting larger speakers in wont be a problem if your talking about watts, if its size of the speaker as in 4" 5" 6" or 6.5" speakers then you will need to look at the size speaker that came out and use the same in after market speakers. your head unit puts out a power rateing in watts norm around 25 to 50 watts if you keep within the power range and dont buy speakers that are smaller in watts any aftermarket speakers will work.

The volume or maybe the speakers in my 2002 hyundai sonata stopped working. Radio still comes on but no sound. What can I do.

if you happen to have a speaker available, try to test the stereo. plug in a speaker and see if it works. otherwise, i don't really like this method but, it does work... unlug your factory speaker and plug a 9v battery to the speaker, if you hear a little popping/wizzing sound, the speaker works and it's the head unit.
also, check to see if the radio has an amp. sometimes the radio will be operational, but the amp isn't and that is the problem. and the easy solution is to replace the radio with an after market of choice. factory radio's that are purchased seperately are rather expensive.

Hello i would like to add a din head unit a few 6/9s and maybe a sub if poss into my saab 9-3 vector sport 56 plate is it possible with my existing 7 factory fitted speakers so that when i come to sell my...

My suggestion is to go to your local audio shop and pickup a dash kit and wiring harness to hook up the din head unit. I actually wouldn't recommend putting in aftermarket speakers unless you don't plan on reselling or they are blown. You could hook a sub up by running your power wire to your amp like usual, hook your amp turn-on wire to an accessory wire and buy a "line level converter" you will tap into factory speaker wires with this and it will convert it to RCAs. You will only need to do this if you are using the factory head unit. Also, unless the aftermarket unit has features that you want that the factory one doesn't, I wouldn't bother with that either. Good luck. Let me know if you need any more help.
