Question about MTX Car Audio & Video

1 Answer

Car amplifiers I just hooked up 2 mtx terminator 12" subwoofers with a 400w amp. I had to use a line output converter to install it with my stock stereo. ever since i hooked it up my subs keep cutting out. i can twist my rca cables on the converter and sometimes they will cut back on. i have already exchanged the converter for a new one but it still does it. Does anyone have any suggestions?

How do I hook up my subwoofer and amp to my ford f150?


to hook up the amp. drill a hole in the firewall, run an 8 or greater gauge cable (greater, depending on the wattage of the subwoofer amplifier) from the battery positive lead, thru the firewall, to the amp power +, and be sure to place an in line fuse within the engine compartment, within a foot of the battery. hook the speaker up, and then run the amplifier negative lead to a bare metal part of the cars chasss, and, finally, hook the amplifier remote power lead to the acc circuit of the interior fusebox (i usually just take the acc fuse out, stick the wire in the acc fuse receptacle, then re-insert the fuse to complete the circuit).

to run the radio signal to the amp, you can use a speaker to line level converter (if stock stereo). just splice them into the stock stereo speaker leads

How do i hook my car speaker and the sub and output converter together


you splice the output converter into the stock stereo speaker wires, then run rca cables from the converter into the amplifier rca inputs. the amplifier prolly has left and right speaker leads, you will have to locate a manual, or photo of the mono bridged lead position, if it isnt labeled on the side of the amp

Your giving a wrong load / Ohms impediance to your amplifier.
What are the specifications of your subwoofer? Is it SVC 4ohms or DVC 4ohms or DVC 2ohms? Whats the specs of your amplifier?

I want to hook up subs and a amp in a 2008 saturn vue how do i do it


If you are planning on using the factory stereo you will need a line level converter. You basically connect two of your speaker channels to the line level converter. That in turn will give you a line level out (RCA cables) That line level out can be fed to a two channel amp which would be where your subs would hook up to. If you do this however you will lose two channels of mid range and highs ( your rear speakers ). Downfall to this approach is that some line level converters are susceptible to alternator noise.

If you have an aftermarket deck this will be much more simple. You simply run your RCA outputs from your deck to your external amplifier. Aftermarket decks typically have front rear and subwoofer outputs. That means you can drive a four channel amp for your front and rear and a two channel amp for your subwoofer. This is the recommended way to go.
For hookups I just suggest buying an amp kit that is comparable in power rating to your amp. If you buy a 500watt amp make sure your wiring kit can handle at least 500 watts.

Can you run two mtx 6500d amps in parallel for more power?


Not suggested to parallel the output of two amps. Instead take each amp, find out what the amps lowest impedance it can drive is and select your speakers based on that. According to MTX these are stable down to 2 ohms without a rated output power of 500Watts X 1. If you get two dual voice coil subwoofers with each coils characteristic impedance of 4 ohms, when you parallel the two coils you will get a 2 ohm load. Just maek sure the speaker can handle the 500 watts.

Sub hum when amp goes up


I am assuming the following: The Amp power is 1/0 gauge wire (huge) and runs directly to the fuse then to the battery + terminal, and you have a 1/0 gauge wire to an excellent ground. If you are missing any of these (esp the fuse) you are flirting with disaster. This Amplifier draws upwards of 100 Amps with a 1 ohm load! (If you are using this for competition you may also use a second battery to help dampen the noise, a high output alternator, and or a capacitor (which should be connected to the 4 gauge input terminals on your amp). I also assume that: When the engine isn't running the "humm" is not present, and when running if you remove the RCA connections from the AMP the noise should also go away. This amp has line level adaptability connecting speaker level inputs directly into the RCA terminals (you must set the "input sens" switch to "X10") ... so you may get rid of the PAC converter this may help get rid of the noise. For more info call MTX tech service at 800 CALL MTX. And please use ear protection at high levels ... trust me Tinnitus is no fun!

Need proper wiring details.


This is a dual 4 ohm sub. By wiring the terminals in series (one set of + to - from one side to the other) you will have an 8 ohm sub (most folks probably don't want this). By wiring in parallel (+ to + and - to - and connect the - wire to the - terminal on your amp and the + wire to the + terminal on your amp you'll have a 2 ohm sub.
