How to install jensen 40w+40w a-80


I have one of these new, in the box, with no instructions.

Specifications:
Power Output: 40W/Chan Maximum, 18W/Chan RMS
(20hz-20khz into 4 ohms at less than 1% THD)
Freq. Responce: 20hz-30khz, +/-3dB
Signal to noise ratio: 80dB, A-weighted
Input Sensitivity:
Low Level, 100-500 mV
High Level, 1-5v
Input Impedence:
Low Level, 10k ohms
High Level, 27 ohms
Load Impedence: 4-8 ohms allowable (4-8 ohm speakers)
Power Requirement: 14.4v DC (10.8-15.6 allowable)

As you can see the RMS wattage output of these units is only about 18W maximum.

I am planning on using the amp I have on a low power factory car radio. A low power factory radio output should be somewhere between 6-12 watts rms/channel. I will be using the "High Level" inputs for this. DO NOT connect a radio with a higher output power. If your radio says "High Power", 25W/channel, etc, do not connect to this amp. (exception: you can use the "line out" connectors, if so equipped, See Below). I don't have the connector for the high level input so i don't know what I'll do to hook up to it. I'll probably just run wires out of the amp, in lieu of the connector.

The "Low Level" inputs are for an unamplified, line level signal ("line out" connection of a radio, portable CD player, etc). Do Not connect a greatly amplified signal to these connections.

I don't know much about the "Input Sensitivity" control (pot). I'll be leaving it on "Low" for my initial test.

The grey wires are the right speaker wires and the white wires are the left speaker wires. The grey wire with a black tracer mark is the right speaker positive (+) wire. The white wire with a black tracer is the left speaker positive (+) wire.

The blue/white wire is for attachment to your radio's "Auto Ant" (power antenna) connection (usually a orange wire, I said USUALLY). If you have a power antenna on your car, simply splice into the wire running from your radio to the antenna. This blue/white wire activates a relay in the amp which, in turn, completes the circuit through the yellow (+) power wire (See Below). - Alternative 1: You could run this wire directly to your battery with a switch to turn the amp on. You would need to place an in-line fuse of 2amp. - Alternative 2: You could connect this wire to the accessory fuse in your fuse box. If this is done, again, attach a 2amp in-line fuse for extra protection. (Note: if attached to your fuse box accessory fuse, the amp will be on even if you're not using the radio. You could have a switch here also). These are just suggestions. The most common way to connect the blue/white wire is the "Auto Antenna" wire of your radio.

The large black wire is main Ground (-) for the amp. The large yellow wire is Positive (+) power to the amp. Ideally, these should be connected straight to your battery's (+) and (-) terminals. The yellow wire on your amp should have an integral in-line fuse holder with a 7amp fuse. If not, add one. Of course, the black ground wire could simply be attached under a screw, into the body of the vehicle.

Hope this helps !

Jensen XA 2100 Amp. Need High Level input plug diagram. In other words need to know what each of the 6 pins connects to.


the black wire is ground, white is + and white/black is - that's for the left side speakers and the gray is + and gray/black is - that's for the right side speakers and that hooks up to the speaker wires coming from radio to high level input plug if you need a diagram this is the website http://a248.e.akamai.net/pix.crutchfield.com/manuals/110/110xa2100.pdf and look on page 5 it will show you. please vote and leave high marks. Thank you and I hope i answered your question

Car Audio - mixed ohm speakes - best setup


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

http://www.fixya.com/Uploads/images/94A2E8C.jpg

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.

Hooking up system using HI-INPUT amp wires.


This may sound dumb, but are there any other inputs left on the amp? Most amps that i have worked with have a special set of inputs for high input. (by high input you mean speaker level right?) If those exist the obvious answer is to use those. They should be labeled, so just hook them up according to them. You may need a special adapter from the amp manufacturer. If you dont have any high level inputs or any not broken inputs left you have two options. You can either A: junk the amp or B: open it up and solder new connectors back on. (it sounds harder than it really is. There are four large pieces of metal to solder onto the board for a set of inputs)

Trying to hook up amplifier to after market 6by 9 using factory radio


You can not connect the speaker lines directly to the RCA inputs of your amplifier. But you can connect them to your amplifier if your amp has a high level input. Most of the time it looks just like the speaker jacks of the amp, but smaller. It will be labeled high level input or speaker input. Sometimes an amplifier will have a jack for a wiring harness just for this purpose. Some amplifiers have them and some don't.

If your amplifier does not have them, you can purchase a line level adapter at most anyplace that installs car stereos. it converts the speaker level to the proper level of the RCA input.
Just follow the instructions on how to connect it.

If you try to connect the speaker outputs directly to the RCA input of the amplifier you will blow up the pre-amp in your amplifier.

I hope this was helpful to you, if so a good rating is always appreciated.

Thanks and let me know if you need more help.

Factory stero to amp


If the amplifier has inputs for a high level signal, you unhook the wires going into the speaker and plug them into the amp, then hook the outputs up to the speakers. If the amp only has rca inputs, you need to also buy a line level converter. Then you unhook the speakers, hook the wires up the the converter, then hook the converter up to the amp, then hook the amp up to the speakers.

Please leave good feedback!
