    Hi, so where could i get a small baterie charger? ad would i have to use jus the charger or would i have to use baterys to?

  • gignac Mar 07, 2008

    so where do u think i could get one? (charger)

  • gignac Mar 08, 2008

    so just to be sure i ask for a 12volt battery charger? i herd it might need a lil more like 13volt or 14volt cuz the positive has to atach to the REM too so it needs a lil more voltage for current is this true? if not let me know exactly wat voltage charger to ask for thanks

You could get one at walmart, radio shack, or any automotive store

You could use either or both. I would use the charger in the house. The only thing is that if you have a big amp, the charger may not work at high volumes because the bass may draw too much power. The best way it will work is to hook them both together but I dont recommend you charging a batt in the house.

No, 24 volts will burn up your amps. If you can get a small battery charger, you can use that to power your amp. Hook it up the same way I told you with a car batt.

First of all, is this going into a car? If you are just hooking this up for whatever, the positive from the batt goes to the (+) positive on the amp. The negative from the batt goes to the (-) negative on the amp. The (rem) remote wire will also go to the (+) positive on the batt. If its not in a car, its only going to work for a short time until the batt dies. If it is going into a car, post it.

    I'm sorry, I forgot the red and white wires. Plug the red and white into the input of the amp and the other end into the output of the receiver. Be careful though. The red and white plugs are low level inputs and if turn the receiver up too high, it may damage your amp.

  • dremail Mar 12, 2008

    ask for a regular 12 volt battery charger. Most chargers go up to 13.8 or 14 volts. Ask for a simple car battery charger.

What is the REM (remote I assume). The second hot wire other than the red is usually yellow. Is your REM wire yellow. Also, don't forget to put a fuse in the "positive" side of the circuit. Keever

How do I hook up this darn Phoenix gold octane r 8.0.1 amp it's supposed to be a monoblock amp but has 2 hook ups 2 positives and 2 negatives I'm thinking that would be to hook up 2 4 ohm speakers to equal...

Most mono amps now a days give you multiple terminals. The older amps were a pain trying to stuff all the wires in one set of terminals. If the amp is rated at 2 ohms mono then make sure what ever configuration of speakers your running does not go below 2 ohms using both terminals. For example do not hook a 2 ohm load to each terminal. 2 ohms period between the 2 sets of terminals.

48volt system i got 4 deep cycle 12volt batterys. Would like 2 know how 2 hook up.

Hi, you would connect the positive side of one battery to the negative side of the next battery. Then connect the positive side of that battery to the negative side of the next battery. Do that two more times until all four batteries are connected-positive of one battery to negative of next battery. The last battery will have 48 volts as compared to the negative terminal of the first battery. I can make a picture if you need it.

I cannot find the right way to hook my TS-W304C Subwolfers up to a mono channel amp.

what amp? the speaker wiring depends on the ohmage rating of the amp. if the amp is 2 ohm stable, then you can hook 2 TS-W304C's up to it, both positive leads from the speakers attached to the amp positive, and both negative speaker leads connected to amp negative. this is called parallel wiring, and it reduces the ohmage (resistance) down to 2 ohms. your speakers are 4 ohms, and 2x4 ohm speakers in parallel makes it equal 2 ohms. if your amp is only 4 ohm stable, then you will only be able to hook up one of your speakers to it.

Car Audio - mixed ohm speakes - best setup

Here is the link how the speakers are suppose to be connected.

You notice how they hook it up the left connections are your full range or hi frequency speakers and the switch is on for HPF (High pass Filter meaning only high frequency is being passed thru)

The right connections are connected to subs and the switch is on for LPF (Low pass Filter meaning only low frequency is being passed thru)

If you turn off these switches to off the its FULL RANGE all frequencies will pass thru.

The single output of the radio is probably for a subwoofer output but since your using the amp to power speakers too Its useless because your sending only low frequencies to the amp which will make any speakers connected to the amp sound horrible due too all the highs and mids will be filtered out.

STEP 1. 2 4ohm speakers depending where you put them Front or back. Hook these speakers up to the Radio's speaker wires coming out of the radio harness. You can also call them Hi level output wires FR & FL wires if positioning them in the Front. Hook them to the RL or RR if positioning them in the Back. What ever wires you dont use tape them SEPARATELY . DO NOT TAPE THEM TOGETHER and cause them to touch each other it will short out the radio and you will hear no sound.

STEP 2. Ok get 4 same length speaker wires and cut them long enough to go too the amp. Now these speaker wires will only send the FULL RANGE frequency signals to your amp. So note with a paper and pen how your connecting each speaker wire. I would tape one wire with black tape to remember this is the FR right, 2 tape FR left, 3 tape BK right, 4 tape Bk left. And I would make the copper thread of the wire positive and silver thread of the wire negative (very important so that your in phase and it will sound awesome) mixing up the positive and negatives will give you a tinney sound and it horrible to hear .

STEP 3 connect these 4 speaker wires to the High level out speaker wires coming out of the radio. The wires that are already connected to the 2 4ohm speakers go ahead and splice into them and the ones you didnt use connect to the remaining 2/4 speakers. REMEMBER OR NOTE THE CONNECTIONS cause you have to connect the right sequence and right polarity + & - to the HI Level input of the AMP. You will not use any RCA'S from the radio to the amp anymore. Since your radio dont have any Front & Rear output coming from the back of the radio. (YOU CANNOT USE BOTH RCA INPUT & HI LEVEL INPUT OF THE AMP ITS 1 or the other OR YOU WILL BURN OUT THE AMP AND DAMAGE THE RADIO)

STEP 4. Now connect your 2 6ohm speakers of your front left and back left together in parallel and your 2 6ohm speakers of your front right and back right together in parallel. Look at the diagram hook it on the left connections as in the picture of the front left speaker(but your connecting two 6ohms valued at 3ohms when in parallel and the amp can handle 2ohms so its safe) Do the same connection for your two right speakers as shown in the diagram of the Front right speaker. SWITCH THE HPF to OFF so that you get full range out of your speakers. Mid range is 70% of your music if you turn it ON you are only getting the high frequencies and it will sound awful.

STEP 5. This is the final connection Your 6 ohm sub is very bad for this amp. For example if you bridge it off of the last two channels the amp may double the power. If each channel is 100 watts and you connect the positive to one channels positive and connect the negative to the others channel negative(presuming its bridgeable) On a regular 4ohm sub it will be getting 200 Watts of power which is an average thump. Now you put a 6 ohm sub it will be weak and it will be getting around 130Watts. To make it worse if this 4 Channel amp is not bridgeable you can only connect it to 1 channel and the output will be around 70 WATTS causing distortion due to lack of power. If you still connect the sub be sure the switch is ON.

Good luck cause this the best connection you can do anything different and I'm sorry it will sound even worse. I am a master installer and have done this for 12 yrs. The higher the ohms the worse the sound gets cause less power. Thats why car speakers are 4ohms and home speakers are 6 ohms or higher cause they have a bigger amplifier to power and 120volts AC current. A car only has a 12Volt DC current powering the amp.

What wires do i need to hook up 2 kicker solobaric s15l7 to a car

You will need the amp wires. Red Positive to battery, Black negative from amp ground to unpainted car body surface, and the blue remote wire that goes from amp to remote wire on back of cd deck.
Then you will need the rca cables from rear output of cd player to the amp.
Then just the positive and negative wire from speaker to amp. Use Speaker Positive wire to Amp Right Channel Positive
And speaker negative wire to amp Left Channel Legative wire.
That is it.

My speakers do not work but my subs do.

Good day sir, hi, there reason why speakers don't work could either be the folowing:
  1. you speaker voice coil is burnt, to test, you need to get the door speakers out and locate the terminals, prepare a 1.5 double AA battery, use this to test you speaker. connect a wire from the negative of the battery to the negative of the speaker, and the positive battery to the positive terminal of the speaker with a series of gentle taps, you should hear clicking sound. if not replace the speaker.
a9b085b.gif Do it on the other door speaker.

2. check your speaker line from the amplifier to the door speaker.
3. check your power amplifier for loose and improper connection.
4. check your power amplifier itself. Thats it.

Its a little work, visit your local electronic repair shop if your speaker still won't work.

How to


Please follow the following instructions 1)Use a wiring harness equipped with an adapter plug for faster connection and installation.Disconnect the car battery while installing electronic equipment.

2) Make a note of the wire colors and connect the power supply wires to the DEH-45DH as follows:

Orange wire to the constant 12Volt
Yellow wire to the switched 12Volt
Black: ground wire

3) Connect these wires to control display functions on the DEH-45DH:

Attach the gray wire to the wire marked control panel illumination.
The brown wire connects to the dimmer.

4) Make the front speakers connections following this color scheme:

Left front positive (+) tan wire
Left front negative(-) Gray

The light green wire connects to the positive (+) terminal of the right front speaker.
Connect the dark green wire to the negative (-) terminal of the right front speaker.

5) Make these rear speaker connections:

Brown wire to the left rear positive (+) terminal
Yellow wire to the left rear negative (-) terminal

The dark blue wire attaches to the right rear positive (+) terminal
The light blue wire connects to the right rear negative (-) terminal

Hope this helps

ok well this is easily checked with a ohm meter see what the resistance is then if ok you might have a problem with your amp wire the speakers direct to the amp do not use ground on the car to negative on the speaker the amp is making its own ground called a floating ground do not hook the speakers together cause then you might put the in series or in parallel this is dangerous to your amp will make it work harder. so put the positive of the speaker to the positive on the amp and negative to negative same for the other speaker

How to

First of all, make sure your amp is bridgeable. There are a few ways to bridge subs. series: hook one wire from the negative on the left amp output (or whichever is labeled on amp for bridged)to left sub negative. left sub positive to right sub negative, then right sub positive to the amp positive output.(like a big loop through both speakers) parallel: both speakers get their own set of wires, both negatives go to the bridge negative terminal, and both positives go to the positive bridge terminal. Series-parallel: A combination of the two. say two speakers in series, and one hooked up alone, but all to the same amp outputs. Bridging your amp/speakers basically lowers the resistance of the circuit and makes more current flow, more power, louder, harder hit. In series, it also makes both speakers do exactly the same thing, instead of "stereo sound" or L/R differences. What you're probably looking to do is Bridge in parallel. That will drop the resistance of the circuit the lowest, allow the amp to put out the most amount of current to the speakers, and allow your bass to hit the hardest. If your amp only has one output, hook up the same way as above. Just see what resistance your amp is stable down to. If down to 1 ohm, no worries. if stable only to 2 or 4 ohms, you may want to bridge in series to be safe. That will cause the resistance to go up, and will not pull as much current through the amp. The whole time, just remember Bridgeing and higher current mean HEAT so watch your amp. I hope this helped.
