Find out if the stock stereo has RCA line level outputs.

If it doesnt, you might want to use a speaker level to line level adaptor box. This will drop the amplified signal that runs your speakers to a low level you can feed into the amp.

If it does have the RCA lines, those would be preferred.

Choose an amp that puts out at least 200 watts RMS. Many amps are overrated. Look for the RMS rating in the fine print.
Dis-reguard the "Peak Power" ratings. They dont mean a whole lot.

The box the subs are in is one of the most important things in the system, because if the box doesnt preform right, you simply wont get the bass. You might get a box at a second hand store or garage sale that would out preform some of the boxes you might find at a WalMart. (The design of the box is everything)
Then make sure you get some quality subs in the box.

Also remember that sometimes a SMALL, quality sub could out preform a LARGER sub of lower quality. Theres no need to use up all of the cargo space in your vehicle for the sub and not have room for anything else.

God luck!

Custom center console box with a sa-8 (8" sundown audio sub) with it no higher the the stock jump seat in a 2005 dodge ram 1500 with sub facing down.. is this possible


If you are removing the jump seat, i would just mount the sub facing rearward to the back of the cab, and port firing down(aeroport),or slot port forward.
the12volt.com has some great box port calculators.

I bought a sony deck to replace the bose stock deck on my 1996 nissan maxima. I purchased the wiring harness and antena adapter also. I hooked everything up right and getting power but im not getting no...


each speaker in your car runs the wiring thru an amp. So each spkear has its own amp for the bose system. You can not hook up a none bose radio If you do you will need to run new wires and replace all the speakers. Sorry.

Trying to put ported reccomended subs in sealed box.


Well, 1.6 cubic foot for a 15 is not nearly enough. A ported box for 1 15 should be in atleast 3 cubes by itself. I suggest building a new box yourself or getting someone else to do it for you. If factory specs on those subs is no larger than 3 cubes per sub then I'd get the box built to 3 cubes per sub after all displacement and tune it in the upper 30's range. Putting big subs like that in a small sealed enclosure can and will damage a sub. and if you try to port an enclosure that is too small to begin with that will also hurt the woofer. Do it right or learn the hard way.

Hello, need to know how i should wire a single 14" sub spk to my ST4-720 ??


havent heard of too many 14" speakers... but it all depends on what ohm the speaker is. single 4 ohm- bridge it on one set of channels. left + right- . if its a dual 4 ohm i wouldnt reccomend using it at all. you could technically bridge each coil on each set of channels. but it may not sound right. kinda hard to set the gains and match them. dual 2 ohm- run the sub stereo. one coil to one channel, the other coil to the other channel. single 2 ohm. dont use it unless you get another sub like what you have. then run it stereo. one sub to one channel. the other sub to the other channel.

Will my car stereo power 300 watt speakers?


it will power them but it will only push a small amount of wattage to them. something like 45 watts so they won't be very loud but if you run the wires you will hear them. It's beneficial to just invest in an amp you can pick up a 200 watt pretty cheap these days. and you will be much happier with the end result.

This commonly happens when the ohm load is too low. Double-check the wiring to confirm that the speakers are wired properly.

hi, your amp seems to be getting power but the cables might be wrong so it's not getting enough power. the light on the amp should be green if everything is going well. are you sure the cables are suitable for your amp?
