Another question for zzedly about the speakers cutting out

I have two 9" by 6" memphis door spreakers along with two more speakers in the back. I only have one amp and it is hooked up to my two 10" subwoofers and it seems to push them fine but when i turn it up loud the door and rear speakers cut out but not the subs, so all it is is the subs going with no music just the beat. i think i have good airflow for my amp and i want to how could i fix it. should i get a new amp just for the speakers? if so how big of an amp? and how would i hook that one up?
sorry for the lack of info before please help zzedly
thank you

So, as I see it, your system is hooked up like so:

  • Ch1 = Left speakers, front and back
  • Ch2 = Right speakers, front and back
  • Ch3 = One sub
  • Ch4 = Other sub
One thing you can try is swapping channels. Swap Ch1 with Ch3 and Ch2 with Ch4. Then see if the issue still occurs on the door speakers or do the subs suddenly cut out at loud volume. If the subs start cutting out, that means the issue is with Ch1 and Ch2. If you haven't already, check the RCA connections to Ch1 and Ch2 as well as the gain for all channels. If the gain isn't already set to about 50%, put it there.

Hi,need to install 6x9 spreakers to my bmw e36 coupe rear shelf but see no other way to do it unless cut some metal off.May be there are ways to do it without any modifications?


You can make some plates from mdf or the like to "lift" the 6x9's up (can also be bought, but I can't remember were I bought mine from, was a while ago). just cut some mdf to take the speaker and cut about 1" around, paint or cover with material and screw through to the shelf.

Hello lilzizia,

I'm not really sure what this has to do with the Memphis PRC41's, but just multiply .4X10X10X10X10 = 4,000.

Hope this helps.

Change the speakers


there should be screws in the front door panels hiding under plastic clips at the door handle levers and the grab handel possibly under the window switch pack and along the bottom of the door then you just get a flat putty knife and pop the panels off there are a dozen or so push in plastic clips attached to the back of the door panels, as for the back deck lid you will go in the trunk and remove the ten mm bolts for the third brake light and remove that and look for any other ten mms sticking down and remove them. the rest will be clips that just pop up , make sure you have the proper wire harness adaptors for you stock speaker wireing so you dont have to cut them off to attach your new speakers -jeff

No Sound out of my speakers


The last Kenwood that I had witnessed with a flashing power light was defective. It also caused the subwoofers to move slowly back and forth. More than likely, you have an internal issue with the amp. Call Kenwood, and see how much they would charge to have you send the amp in for repair. Or pick up a new amp.

New car speakers cut out when I turn up the volume.


You just have to check all of the speaker wiring.It's a wire touching somewhere and it will do that till you fix it. What it is is just where the negative wire which is the ground for your spreakers it's touching the positive wire which is know as a power wire.When this happends it lowers the frequency of the volume which will cause the speakers to cut out and volume level to drop.
