If you replace the head unit, that will make a big difference. If not, then it really depends on the type of music you primarily listen to. From a single sub setup, an 8 or 10 in a sealed box is best for punchy base, i.e. alternative, hard rock... A 12, 15, or 18 is designed to reach those lower bass frequencies and are suited better for ported enclosures. I.e. Rap, bass heavy Regge, etc...However, that's not to say that you can't go back and forth between them. The main difference is that a 10 and below tends to be more accurate, and can follow the kick drums, for example, a lot faster than larger woofers. Determine what your primary listening music is, what you want out of your system, and a maximum price for everything first. Then, I can suggest woofers, amps, etc.

I need a wiring diagram from car stereo to 2 x 6 " x 9 " and a sub woofer please


You can connect the two 6x9 speakers to the two individual left and right outputs of the car stereo.
Connect each of the left and right channel with the correct polarity . Now the Sub-woofer requires an amplifier to be connected separately and so you need to use the car stereo to be linked to a sub woofer amp which powers the sub woofer.

How do i get the best sound from my infinity 1250w subwoofers


Make sure the ohm's are the same on all your speakers and amp.
You amp watt should be equal or higher then your speakers total amps.
You base box should be completely air tight, and have about 1/2 of the box stuffed with cotton.
Make sure you use a good thick speaker cables to connect from the amp to the speakers.
and finally, make sure your trunk seals tight and wont rattle... cause nothing sounds worse then someone pulling next to you and all you hear is a buzzing sound from the trunk rattling... Also... sell the infinity's and get something like memphis, or panasonics. :P

Can i connect the amplifier and subwoofer to the built ford fiesta radio


If your amp has rca jack inputs only you will need in-line filters to reduce the stock stereo speaker outputs down to less than 3 watts. If your amp has high power inputs you can use those. If your amp does not have a built-in crossover then you will need to install a low-pass crossover or filter before the amp so the only the bass comes thru or the sub woofer will have major distortion. Another problem is the amplifier needs a turn-on signal for the blue wire and most factory radios do not have one. That means you will have to tie that wire into the switched 12v wire from the vehicle so the amp comes on when the key is switched on. It can be done be done but I don't think you will be very impressed with the sub due to most factory stereos have a limited bass range. Most aftermarket head units have built-in crossovers and sub outputs. They also produce much better sound than the factory unit. So in other words yes you can.

What would be the best amp for me


For your kenwood subs, depending on power and i think i know these, the amp I would get is a small D class amp; KAC8104D. check it out on ebay; they have it new for a great price, and I would get the other woofer.

Sub woofers and amp


first of all is the amp a four way amp? if so then you need to know what the watts of the subs are (you dont want to melt them) wire + and - of channels 1 and 2 to one sub and + and - of channel 3 and 4 to second sub, nice thick lead from battery positive (fused) to positive terminal on amp thick lead from a good earth point to negative terminal on amp run a set of rca leads down the opposte side to the positive wire to prevent interference, run thin wire from remote wire of radio to the remote terminal of amp, rca's are plugged in at stereo and at the am. may need a RCA splitter to be able to power all four channels

Good luck Davelee

OEM gm stereo


If your amplifier has what they call High level inputs (basically inputs on the amp that you run the speaker wires from your radio into), you can splice wires from where the connectors are on your rear speaker(s), still leaving the speaker hooked up, and use those as an input into the amp. If your amplifier does not have high level inputs, a convertor is available to turn an audio signal from your radio output speaker wires ( spliced in just as above, leaving the speaker hooked up), into an rca output jack. Or the best thing to do would be to buy another say 2-4 channel amp w/high level inputs and rca inputs and outputs, and run your rear speaker wires into the amp. Then you'll be able to run the rca cables out of that amp and into the sub amp, and you'll have the new amp to power your rear speakers or rears and fronts. That would be ideal. But, A convertor is your best bet. Got em at best buy, circuit city, etc. Hope this was helpful.
