Hello melgiblett, as adding additional speakers to you current factory speakers will cause and abundance of power drain, you head unit is only designed to handle 4 speakers.. the only option would be to either splice your front or rear speakers to the new 6x9's, however you will notice a significant drop in audio volume and quality as your head unit would not be powerful enough to run all 6. with the assistance of an amplifier, you may be able to acheive all 6 speakers

I have 2 pioneer 6x9 400w, pioneer GM 6500f 760w amp and a kenwood KFC W1012 sub, how d i get the best sound from these?


pioneer gm 6500 is a 4 ch amp rated at 60w-4 way to small of an amp to run your sub. UNDER-POWERING your sub is more likely to damage spkr than over-powering. my advice,get mono-block to run sub

if these speakers are several years old, chances are that the left one is just blown. could be a loose wire, but if not, it would be cheaper to get new speakers than to get that one fixed

I replaced the 2 ohm 6x9's in my buick with the monsoon amp, with 4 ohm 6x9's. After i put the speakers in, almost no sound came out. I've read that you can wire them in parallel from one...


If you did wire these in parallel to get the 2 ohm load, you will loose your balance. Also, you may have to bridge your amp.
To do this, go from the positive of the amp to both positives of both speakers. Then from the negative of the amp to both negatives of both speakers. If you have a 2 channel amp, you will have to bridge it. Note, make sure your amp is 2 ohm stable.

hope this helps

I have 2 Kicker 6x9 450 wat speakers, what is the recomended type of amp.


If you plan to add more speakers to push 4 of the inside the car I would go with a good 4 channel amp at least 150watts RMS per channel. That should be plenty with put worrying about blowing the speakers.

What kind of amp do i need for 2 kicker ds6930 140 watts peak and 2 ks6930 6x9 watts peak 150 and 3 Kicker KS350 3-1/2 40 watts each peak


600 Watt to 1000 Watt 4 CHANNEL AMP for the four 6X9's and a less powerfull 4 Channel amp thats at least 200Watts to 400Watts peak for the 3 3-1/2 kicker speakers. Because if you try to connect the 3 3-1/2 speakers to only 1 4 channel amp that the 6X9 speakers are on you risk of overheating the amp and blowing the speakers too!!!

SPEAKER CONNECTIONS


You can go to checkers or auto zone and they can assist you with purchasing a tool that is designed specifically for pulling the fasteners that hold the door panels snug to the door frame itself-or you can use a good sized flathead screwdriver to do it and if any get damaged you can get new ones at the same stores to replace them-as far as the 6x9 speakers go you can most likelyjust plug them in parallel wired to the amp or at the speakers but it will drop your ohms a little(resistance) assuming that the speakers that are already in the vehicle are all 4 ohm speakers wiring the 6x9s parallel with a set of them would give you a 2 ohm load per channell at the amp-most amps today are stable at 2 ohms so it should be fine
