I only have one actual speaker wire for my surround sound system so I was wondering if I can use the speaker wire from the sub and amp in my car?


Technically, yes that will work. The wire from your car speakers is meant to carry more of a load, hence the bigger gauge of wire, but it'll all conduct the same. You might just have trouble getting the connection to sit well. Your best bet is to go get some home theater speaker wire from the closest hardware store or radio shack.

I want to extend my speaker cables, how should i connect them


The ideal solution would be to swap out the entire cable for a longer one unless you have to...
It sounds like this isn't an option, so your next best choice is to get some extension speaker cable and cable crimp-on connectors or Wire cable connector blocks (see ebay URL with picture below ) from the wiring department at Radio Shack, Home Depot or your local hardware store. The crimp connectors are generally rubber shielded metal tubes that you insert the wires from the speaker and the extension speaker wire. You then squeeze the crimp-on connector with pliers to secure the wires in place.
IMPORTANT...During extension make sure the polarity (+ -) marekd with different color will continue from existing speaker cable.Otherwise you will loose the LOW NOTES -BASS

If you don't have any extra speaker wire on hand, you can pick some up at a reasonable price at Radio Shack or any hardware store. While there are many theories about what gauge speaker cable are best, you're likely starting with fairly thin wire coming from the back of the RCA home theater system, so crimping on a heavy gauge wire will do little to improve your signal quality. 18-guage speaker wire will likely do the trick in most cases. I would likely recommend a different solution if this were a component-based system with individually powered amps, but for an all-in-one system, 18-guage wire will be sufficient.
Crimp-on **** connectors come in a variety of sizes. Make sure the size you choose is appropriate for the wire you use to extend the length of your speaker cabling run. Here again, Radio Shack and the local hardware stores will sell the connectors you need for most of the common wire gauges.

How do you connect the amp with the stereo


  • Choose where to put your new amp. If you are installing subwoofers it's usually best to put the amplifier in the trunk next to or attached to your subwoofer enclosure. If you are going to power your main car speakers with the amplifier then it may be better to put the amp under the passenger's seat.

  • 2

    Purchase the following wiring for the amp: A thick power cable (the thickness required depends on the total wattage of your amp, ask a sales rep or consult your amplifier's manual for the proper gauge) that will have to reach from your battery to the amp (the power cable should also have an inline fuse to protect the amplifier); 3 feet of ground cable of equal thickness as the power cable; an RCA signal cable to carry the left and right signals from your head unit to the amp; a "remote on" wire which can be any thin wire (20 to 24 gauge) that will also run from the head unit to the amp; speaker wire (if you are powering subwoofers you should only need about 3 feet of 12-gauge wire per sub, if you're going to power your main speakers you will need enough 16-gauge wire to reach each speaker from the amp, 12 feet per speaker is usually safe).

  • 3

    Gather the following tools: Screwdrivers, wire cutters, wire strippers, pliers, a utility knife, sandpaper, masking tape with a pen for labeling, 2 crimp-on o-ring ends for the power and ground cables. If you're hooking the amp to your speakers, you'll also need 2 crimp-on female spade connectors for each speaker.

  • 4

    Find a manual with instructions on taking off the dash of your car (not the whole dash--just the head unit, in order to hook wires to the back), and also to get at your car's speakers if you are hooking the amp to them.
    The Installation

  • 1

    Disconnect the ground (negative) cable from your battery. Never work on the electrical system of your car with this connected.

  • 2

    Attach the side with the fuse of the thick positive (+/red) power cable to the connector on the positive terminal of your battery; the o-ring can be sandwiched in the bolt on the connector that connects your car to the battery. Now put the fuse in the fuse holder.

  • 3

    Run the power cable through the firewall of your car (there is usually an opening on the driver's side) and to your amplifier. If your amp is in the back it is usually best to run this wire under the plastic molding that goes along the bottom edge of your car. Be careful where you run the wire because the power cables should never be near the signal or speaker wires.

  • 4

    Find a metal bolt or screw on the metal of your car near the amp to connect the ground cable to. This should be as close to the amp as possible, never more than 3 feet. Unscrew it and clean the metal surface with sandpaper. Attach the ground to it with the o-ring and screw it back down firmly.

  • 5

    Remove your head unit and run the signal and remote on wires from behind the head unit to your amp. Connect the RCA connectors and the remote on wire to the back of your head unit.

  • 6

    (If you are installing subwoofers and not running your normal speakers off the amplifier skip to step 7.) Run the 16-gauge wire from each one of your speakers to the amplifier. On the amp side use the masking tape to label each wire so you know which speaker it is. On the speaker end-strip a 1/4 inch off the ends of the wires and crimp on the female spade connectors with your pliers. Connect the spade connectors to your speakers making sure to match the positive (+/red or white) with the positive terminal and the negative (-/black) with the negative one.

  • 7

    Connect everything to your amplifier. Only strip off as much as you need off the end of each wire to make a solid connection, you don't want any exposed wire hanging out. If you have subs, attach them to the amp with the 12-gauge speaker wire.

  • 8

    Secure your amp to something. If it is in the back you can screw it directly to your subwoofer enclosure. If it is under a seat you may just want to get some straps that hold it down.

  • 9

    Reconnect your car's negative cable to the battery. Test your system and make sure everything works, going around to see that every speaker is on before you put everything back together

    most of the wires are only for lights & will only work as such. the best thing to do is go to you local car parts place & pick up a converter that plugs into the 7 wire connector & changes it down to the four wire. It's usually less than $10 & saves a lot of time.

    What type of "Gauge" wires should I be using for the Kicker ZR600 AMP (Power cable, ground, Speaker wire)?


    Hi there,

    The lower the gauge, the thicker the wire.
    You want multi-strand, not solid. This has better conductivity and less resistance over distance.

    10 to 8 gauge will be able to handle anything that particular amp needs.

    Remember an in-line fuse on the power cable as close to the battery as possible.

    The speaker wire doesn't really need to be anything special

    Sound good? Pun intended

    Best regards
    Mike

    Use the same gauge that is supplied for the rear. Probably 24 gauge.Do it with the power off. If the wires touch with the power on the rear output IC will blow. Good Luck
