How do I hook up a sub woofer & speakers to my car stereo?


If you are replacing the existing door/deck speakers with replacements of the same size and not adding an amplifier, you will be able to use the existing wiring, making note of the positive and negative notation.
Subwoofers, on the other hand, require an amp. There are subs that have an integrated amp in the enclosure, otherwise you will need to buy a separate amp. Connecting the amp to your existing system will highly depend on what outputs your head unit (aka stereo) has. If it has pre-amp outputs, those can be run straight to sub amp. If there are not pre-amp outputs, you may have to buy a "high level" adapter that connects to the same head unit outputs as your speakers.

1000 watt 2-channel Pyle PDGA240 Gear X Series


Make sure that the gain setting on the amp is turned up high enough on the sub's amp.

I need a wiring diagram from car stereo to 2 x 6 " x 9 " and a sub woofer please


You can connect the two 6x9 speakers to the two individual left and right outputs of the car stereo.
Connect each of the left and right channel with the correct polarity . Now the Sub-woofer requires an amplifier to be connected separately and so you need to use the car stereo to be linked to a sub woofer amp which powers the sub woofer.

I have a 1100watt sub woofers, and a 1000 watt amp. Will the my sub woofers, or amp blow out or get damaged.


Are those rms wattage?

Anyways, your subs (if you have two) will double the power of your amp, meaning your amp will be under powering your subs. Nothing will get blown out but will never see their full potential. But if you were to use single sub with your amp then you are more likely see the full potential of the sub and amp.

2 subs=2200 watts is just twice the power of the amp output power!

How much air space is need for a sealed encloser


are you sharing the air space or building a divider to give each driver its own air space

these speakers or not made for low end bass these woofer are meant for mid bass high bass
  • 6.5'' High Power Subwoofer
  • Non-Press paper Cone
  • Specially Treated Foam Edge Suspension
  • 1.5'' High Temperature Aluminum Voice Coil
  • Magnet Weight: 40 Oz
  • Impedance: 4 Ohm
  • Fs: 80Hz, Qms: 4.05, Qes: 1.3, Qts: 1.2, SPL: 87(dB), Vas: 6.8(Cuft)
  • Mounting Depth: 3"
  • Rubber magnet Boot Cover fers are
  • there is only 3 " of mounting depth needed i would build you door pannel out fiberglass a door pod and mount them on the door if you have a factory speaker there . then run to the amp and turn the x-over on to high pass and them use them as a mid bass driver up front for the front sound stage for get about them as a subwoofer get the lanzar 10's or 12's

    i mounted a set of ma audio 8" subs on my 03 s-10 door the speaker fit in the 6.5 location had to trime the door metal and space them out a little cause the 4.75 mounting depth.it worked and then i ran the them in 2 ohm stereo to my 4 channel amp and used the high pass crossover to run them as a mid bass driver works great for me . ma audio 500 watt dual 4 ohms 8" subs each i had 250watts to each sub.

    you could build a small enclosure just big enough to fit the 6.5 woofer you could build a dual camber enclosure like 8wx5dx8h internale air space would be 0.18

    15 wx5dx8h would give you 0.347 share the air space this is internal air space

    Can I hook up a 1200Watt sub-woofer to a 1500watt amp?


    Yes you can. Rule of thumb for sub and amp is that power should be balanced but the amp should have more power than the sub. You probably will need a capacitor for storing power and won't drain the car battery. For the future I would also look in to getting a bigger alternator and a separate battery.

    I get a pop from the sub when the power comes on.


    This is caused because the stereo you have put in, is a high power output, or higher than the factory and puts that extra power into the factory amp systems causing the amp to surge the power to the speaker resulting in the pop sound,most newer cars use a stereo system without an internal amp so as to reduce heat and a external amp in usually under a seat or dash and a high power stereo boost the output of the amp.

    Sub woofers and amp


    first of all is the amp a four way amp? if so then you need to know what the watts of the subs are (you dont want to melt them) wire + and - of channels 1 and 2 to one sub and + and - of channel 3 and 4 to second sub, nice thick lead from battery positive (fused) to positive terminal on amp thick lead from a good earth point to negative terminal on amp run a set of rca leads down the opposte side to the positive wire to prevent interference, run thin wire from remote wire of radio to the remote terminal of amp, rca's are plugged in at stereo and at the am. may need a RCA splitter to be able to power all four channels

    Good luck Davelee

    Could a ground stop your woofer from working?


    First check the speaker wire from the amp to the sub, see if it's connected right. Second check the rca cables that goes from your amp to the back of the deck. I f both wires are still connected fine try to replace the rca cables. If it still doesn't work the rear out put at the back of your deck, where the rca's are connected are bad. FYI deck is bad.

    Speakers cut off when bass goes up...


    it might be that your wires from your amp to your subs are too thin. since they were relatively new the first three months, they were probably undamaged, but after pushing them too much, they probably have broken wires, and can't get enough power to the subs when turned up, i suggest getting thicker wires before investing in a capacitor, it could save you money.
