How do I add another amp and speakers to my system. I have 3 pre-outs (1 pre-out for subs, and one for four channel amp running front and rear speakers) I'd like to add another 2 channel amp and 2 speakers. Will splitters work off of 4 channel amp?

Hello i am rohit i have avh-6850 in my car i want how connect front and rear speaker and subwoofer there only two rc output one is front and other is non-fad & subwoofer tell how to connect front and...


If you only have 2 sets of pre-outs, you will either have to split the fronts into front and rear channels and use the other for a subwoofer signal, or else utilize an equalizer or other preamp that separates out a sub channel. I have an Alpine EQ that I send one stereo pair into, and it sends out front, rear, and sub outs. That allows for front/rear fade, and independent sub level adjustment.

Hello. I need help installing an Eclipse sound system in my Dodge Ram 1500 Quad cab. I went from a Kenwood HU with db Drive 6.5's and 5x7's to the Eclipse CD3200 HU and noticed an immediate improvement...


So you wanna run the subs off of the rear pre amp output rather than just the sub out correct? just get a splitter and run both the rear speakers and sub off of rear channel and front off of front channel. or run all four off of front and subs off rear output. this should give you the sound you want

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.

I have a vw polo 06. Can i hook up a sub plus rear speakers to the factory fitted cd player?


You can use a hi-low converter off your existing speakers. This will give you rca signal wires to run one or more amps, and speakers.

I have all the wires running right but for some reason my amp is not picking up or pushing my subs. could the rca jacks be messed up on the stereo?


According to the specs for the xo 1945- the output is; 50W x 4 Max Power Output , and I do not see a pre amp output listed. So I think to connect subs, you will need a separate AMP.
The way this works; the rear speaker wires from the xo 1945 hook into the Add-on amp, for example a 4 channel amp. In a 4 channel amp, the rear speakers come off two of the channels of the add-on, and the subs come off the other two channels. There is also the option of bridging two channels for more output power to ONE sub.
You did not mention what size sub(s) you were thinking of adding, but keep in mind that the ox 1945 puts 50 watts MAX per channel. So, if you add two 12" subs and a 1500 watt amp to drive them, your total sound is going to be very uneven.
If you go on line and look up auto audio or amps, you'll get a good idea of all the Sub and amp options that are available.... Hope this helps.

What is the best way to connect 4 speakers and a sub to a 4 channel amp.


I would connect the 4 speakers to channels 1-2 in stereo with high pass filter. Bridge the sub to channels 3-4.
A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you. best-way-connect-4-speakers-sub-4-zb4bomd1rt4qms0dqd12kkt2-3-0.jpg

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

Running 4 12s with two insignia 1000 watt amps


Use a pair of two-channel amps that are two-ohm stable, and wire a pair of subs to each amp. Wire them in parallel so the amps see two ohms (wiring in series will show four ohms). Doing this effectively "doubles" the power of the amps. If the amps are not two-ohm stable, they'll fail. Parallel wiring means putting the positive wire of sub 1 to the positive terminal of channel 1 on the amp, and the negative wire of sub 1 on the negative terminal of channel 2. Do the opposite for the second sub. This will give you a LOT of bass response as long as your sub enclosures are properly sized for the speakers.
