Hooking up a new 8" woofer speaker to my amplifier

I had my Pioneer amplifier installed with 4 new speakers and simply love the sound it puts out. My vehicle, a 1998 Mercury Mountaineer LS, came with a factory installed 8" subwoofer in the rear. I want to hook my amplifier to the new 8" speaker that I have just purchased. Can I use the amplifier to do this without purchasing a crossover? If so, how do I hook the crossover to the amplifier so I can get my bass back in my vehicle. Thanks.

If I'm reading the amp manual right, you should be able to connect the amp in 3 channel mode. To do this:

  • Connect both left door speakers in parallel to Ch A Left.
  • Connect both right door speakers in parallel to Ch A Right.
  • Bridge Ch B and connect it to the new 8" sub.
  • Set the Ch A LPF/HPF to HPF.
  • Set the Ch B LPF/HPF to LPF.
This should allow you to run all 4 door speakers and the sub from the amp. It will also automatically route non-bass to the door speakers and "only bass" to the sub.

I do not know how to set the settings on my new amp i have pioneer speakers but i don't want burst them how far can i turn up my amp


if the amp is for speakers, i would set it around +4, for boost, just have the head unit sound level on low before you turn your music on, it won't burst your speakers, your ears will give out way before your speakers does, if the amp is for sub woofer, I have it a little more than my speakers level, because i prefer more bass

What ohm is your sub running at. Sounds like your runnig your amp to low an impedance causing it to thermally shut down, when it cools a bit it turns back on. Either that or you have wires crossed somewhere. Check your wiring and make sure the load of the speaker does not fall below the rcommended ohm of the amp. Usually 4ohms mono and 2ohms stereo

What do you mean by the subs should have more watts than the amp.and subs mean woofer ? actually i dont know any thing abt this. what is 8 ohm stereo, 8 ohm bridged,4 ohm stereo. etc etc...?


If your planning on using a stereo system in your car or home you need to follow some rules otherwise your just wasting money. The watts of a speaker means how much power it can handle. The higher the number the more power it can handle, and usually the louder it can get without distorting. If your amp has more power or close to the wattage rating of the speaker you will blow the speaker, it can even get so hot it ignites. The amount of ohms is the electrical resistance the speaker provides. House speakers usually have 8 ohms where car speakers tend to use 4. 8 ohm stereo means your left and your right are separate channels and each speaker has 8 ohms. 8 ohms bridged means you bridge the left and right channel to increase the power output of the amp and you have to use either 1 8 ohm speaker, or 2 4ohm speakers in parallel to prevent damage to the system. Same goes for 4 ohms. If I remember correctly you want your sub(woofer) to have a wattage rating 20% higher than the amp. Remember if the speaker overheats its no good, but most amps if they overheat they just shut off until they cool off, but only if they state they have a thermal overload protection.

No Audio when disconnect from external amp and hook to speakers


In a radio like your Pioneer and all similar units there are always a pre-amp circuit that feeds a power amp circuit,In some players there are more than one pre-amp circiuts. It is possible and highly probable that the power amp circuit in your Pioneer is shorted, so you still get some audio output , but very little. I believe this is your problem and I suggest that you bring it to a repair shop for an estimate or replace the unit. Good luck and please rate this answer, Thanks.

No sound from my woofer


Check your speaker connections... try using a multimeter set to "OHMS" and see if the speaker is reading around 4-8 ohms... if it shows no reading there is no continuity in the coil of the speaker

HOW TO CONNECT SUB WOOFER IN 4CH CAR AMP


sounds like you need another amp, if the amp has a speaker already connected to each channel, you have no open channel to connect a sub-woofer.
Some years ago I seen an amplifier that was designed to use 3 speakers on 2 channels. what they did was had a speaker on each channel and then they bridged the 3rd speaker across it. That amplifier was designed for this configuration, unless you have an amplifier like that you should not try it. It may result in smoke from the amp.

Not working


Make sure the remote (rem) port is powered, if not take another look at your inputs from the head unit as sometimes we tend to forget the channels orientation of ground and positive left and right.

If all else fails, have an audio installation expert help you out, a pari of extra hands would be helpful too...
