Question about Boston Acoustics 746 Coaxial Car Speaker

Boston 746 speakers

I went to a local stereo shop and listened to some 4x6 speakers. I liked the way the boston speakers sounded. I asked the salesman if he was running a amp with this set up he answered no. I brought them home and insalled them in a 01 Wrangler. I turned the stereo on and my wife and I feel they sound nothing like the ones we listened to at the storeo shop. I remember that the store had them in an enclosure and in my Wrangler there relly is no enclosure. Do you think this my be a prombloem?

They might have had a mini amp installed in each speaker some models of speakers have that feature to where u have to hook up power and also the regular speaker connections to the radio system basically even if you have a radio with some power then the speakers may have some type of crossover or something that makes it so if u dont have the power hooked up to them then they wont work right... but there are some speakers out there that dont do that, or it could be that if the stereo that u r using may just be that it has barely any output so it doesnt power the speakers... option 1, if it is the stereo then u will eather have to go to a car shop that sells the self powering speakers "not as cheap as regular speakers" and get those or, option 2, which consists of having to install a new stereo system with more power "remember the system hass to have a little more power than all the speakers combined together..."

Just bought a car with this stereo. Was working fine and then I accidentally was messing around trying to figure things out and put it in demo mode. Now it's stuck!! Can someone please help?!?!


With the stereo on, hold the large round button in to get to setting menu. When it gets to that, I believe clock adjust comes up first, just turn the knob to get to demo mode and then push the button in. Turn the knob to switch demo off and then push it again. That should do it.

I have a boss 400w riot 2-4 channels,how do i connect the high level wires? Because stereo doesn't have rca's


to use the high level leads, you have to isolate the wires going to each speaker (if using 4 channel mode) or isolate the wires going just to the rear if you are using 2 channel mode. you have to strip a small piece of the insulation off each speaker wire, and run it into the amps high level input harness. if you dont have the high level input harness, you can get a 2 channel high level to rca adapter for around $20. basically, you are tapping into the signal to the stock speakers to feed music to the amp. make sure you get all your positives and negatives correct. brighter wires are usually positive; however you may be faced with sa speaker which uses a grey wire, and another grey wire- the second with a black line. you will have to, again, turn to internet research to determine which is positive and negative, if the colors are not obvious.

I am not getting a bluetooth signal from my car stereo. Can this be fixed?


Does specification of your cr stereo say it has bluetooth? If it says, does it has a switch-on function? Look at manual, in setting! Once bluetooth is on, it should start sync with other device, headphone ir speaker, presume

Where can I find the connections the go on the back of the stereo


Usually behind the stereo in the console. Either a square or rectangle in shape. You can obtain adapters for differing units that allows the use of the original wiring harness without rewiring. Just a simple plug and play option.

What do you think the problem is as to why my ipod want load up,i keep getting the message ipod communication aborted.


bad receiver in the radio, or, the transmitter on the ipod is bad. try it on another bluetooth source to see if it maintains connection, if not, the ipod could be damaged or bad. If it works with another bluetooth source unit, then the radio has a bluetooth receiver issue.

We sell low priced replacements!

1992 GOLDWING RADIO SPEAKERS NOT WORKING


All you can do is trace the wiring back from the radio to the speakers, there is no quick fix here. To test the speakers touch a battery to the two contacts, the speaker will pop if it is any good.
