Sorry to say but if your speakers crackle when you turn them up you need to not turn them up so much or buy new ones. That crackling sound is a blown speaker. It could also be a bad connection but most likely blown or under-driven speakers. Good luck.

I have a 400w rms @ 4ohm sub. What amp do i need? If i want to connect it via 2 channel, bridgeable amp, what wattage does each channel need to be? Do i need a second amp for 2 6x9s?


almost any amplifier amp would push a 400 watt sub. try to stick with a name brand, and steer away from no name brands like boss, jensen, etc.you will only need a 2 channel amp to run your sub.you will need a second amp to run your 6x9'sor you could get a 5 channel amp, and run all your speakers, and the 5th channel for your sub

My 6x9s have stopped producing bass together


There is a short in your wiring somewhere, unfortunately, it would be impossible for me to tell you where it's at. The best advice I could give you is to start at the speakers and work your way back. Hope this helps and good luck!

Bassles Powerplant 6x9s


try reversing the polarity on one speaker.
they might be out of phase.
what happens is the speakers cancel out.
put the balance to one side,and if it has bass,then that is the problem.
if there is no bass with only one playing,then phasing is not the problem

Car stereo Installation Help


As much as it might sound retarded i want to suggest to you that intead of all that hongkong stuff- just go to walmart and get the sony package that comes with the deck/cdplayer and the 4 speakers it comes with a pair of door speakers and a set of 6x9s and all the wiring that you need for a basic install-plus the deck has the rca pre-outs to install an amp. Get an amp and subs from a pawn shop at least you can be sure that it works before you buy it that way- I'm not knocking your idea, but it could be simpler and when you deal with flea-bay you never know whats going to show up on your doorstep. Good luck to you

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

Bass speaker start up noise


Hello anne845,

It sounds like the installer wired the amp remote turn-on terminal to an "accessory" lead in your vehicle. Many stock radios do not have a dedicated amp turn-or lead and the alternative is to connect the amp to a switched power source (ignition or accessory). This means the amp turns on whenever you turn on the vehicle ignition, often resulting in a thumping from the subs. It is a perfectly satisfactory alternative, and will not damage either the amp or the sub. But it's irritating.

If the thumping is objectionable, have your installer wire a SPST (Single Pole, Single Throw) toggle switch inline with the turn-on wire. The switch should be mounted so it is accessible by the driver, and whenever you turn on the radio, turn on the toggle switch.

Hope this helps.

Speaker installment


I would run a 250-500 watt 2 channel high input capable amp.  run the original wires to the orginal speakers and jump off the original wires to the amp to push the secondary 6X9's you have.  So my understanding is.  you want the 4 original speakers and subs and add 2 additional speakers making 6 speakers not uncluding subs..
Head units care barely push 4 decent normal size speaker.  Usually they are 30-55watt per channel.  If you have 2 non sub speakers that are 250 watt max.. that's 500 total but don't push the amp all the way...start with it at 1/4 and listen to your stereo at a higher than nominal volume slowly turning up the amp.

Sub Woffer System


Could be Faulty RCA wires (they bring the sound from the radio to the amp) or a bad ground (the larger black wire coming out of the amp) This is under warrranty and you should not have to worry about it... bring it back, they make fix..

Hi 1 2fade,

The market in Motorcycles, especially Harley Davidson pushes for helmet speakers. You cannot possibly get good sound when riding with externally mounted speakers. Only when sitting at an event will give you decent sounds. You probably already know this. I suggest pioneer Marine grade equipment, and a premium brand of Marine grade. I also suggest you gett a Helmet set so you can enjoy great music while riding if you dont already have it.
