Audiophase CA-813 output specs and wiring suggestions

Hi!

I need to know the max output, watts and ohms, that an audiophase CA-813 car stereo can put out.

I need the Ohms because I intend to install 6 speakers instead of the original 4. This brings me to another question:

How would I wire this? I've got one set of infinity 552i speakers 4 ohms, one set of Fei Lo (cheap chinese?) YD140-A1 speakers 8 ohms, and one set of kenwood t10-0286-03 woofers 8 ohm.
should they be run with the infinity's on front channel with Fei Lo and the Woofers in parallel on the rear channel??

I know this is a strange mish mash of cheap ****, but cheap is what I've already got on hand.

SOURCE: speakers

400 watts delivered to 300 watt speakers the only way to do this would be to wire two subwoofers in series so that the power needed to drive them will be 600 watts to max, however this will increase your impedance on the speaker (8 ohms) load so what you can do to compensate is get an 8 ohm 600 watt resistor and put it in parallel with the speakers you will then have 4 ohms of impedance at a total capacity of 600 watts of power In other words the amplifier won't blow these out now.

Hi Trim God,

 

I do not reccommend that you push the Pioneer speakers over 100 watts.  The jenson will already drown the car with bass through your pioneers so much you will want to turn off the bass boost when playing some low bass hip hop songs. It changes from one venue of song to another, so I just keep the jenson bass boost off and use my head unit to adjsut the sound to fit my listening prefences. I am telling you man, you will be blown away .  Hook up the pioneers straight to the Channels,. do not bridge.  I put Subs in my truck though.  I used the Pass output to send the audio to me Jenson 2 Channel 600W amp. I drive one 10 inch enclosed JBL Class A/B Sub. I bridged the output of the 600 W amp to the 10 inch sub  in my Z28.  The pioneers never get drowned out.  I did smoke my 2 channel Amp one time. and also took out a MTD 10inch sub. I am talk shooting flames and smoked the whole car up. I think if you bride the XA4150 to the pioneers, you will have the flaming smoke problem in no time.

SOURCE: Wiring for running 4 speakers from amplifier

I asked about wiring up 4 speakers from oe amplifier....not about Tom Tom?

It does not inspire me with confidence in your abilities if you get confused between customers and their questions, so I will look elsewhere for answers.
Thanks anyway

SOURCE: With my RX-V663 can I use presence speakers less than 8 ohms?

Basically you can use any speaker as long as you use the volume button wisely. Damage will only occur if you raise the volume level to the extremes. Bigger speakers should be no problem, if you want bi-amping, your speakers should support that as well.

SOURCE: replacing sub speaker

I wouldn't try reinventing it by replacing the driver. Drivers and their enclosures are designed to work together. And this being a self-amplified subwoofer, there is one more piece that's electrically optimized to the rest. Don't mess with it.

Why don't you just set your receiver's individual relative speaker volume levels so the sub isn't weak by comparison to your other speakers? Weakness, as you call it, is relative.

Is your receiver properly channeling Low Frequencies to the sub? Experiment with the cutoff, too.

This problem doesn't require meatball surgery.

I want to connect Max 2500 with 6 JBL Control 28 speakers 175 watts @ 8 ohms each... please suggest what will be the best connection...series or parallel


first is how u want to run the amp itself ....... the MAX2500 can run in mono (bridged) output or stereo ......... though wat u want to watch is the impedance of the load really with the bridged load being no lower than 8 ohms/1500W (there's reasons for this) and the stereo load where u can have either 4 ohms/750W or 8 ohms/500W so how do u want to run this is first the question ..... all 6 on the bridged output or 2 off each channel (though running 3 would make for complicated impedance load) ..... so u'd run 2 in parallel for a 4 ohm load with 300 watt requirement from the amp and u can drive them to 1.5 times their rated RMS figure so a nice 500 watts :)

Will i be able to swap the original speakers of the J520 with a pair of Sony SS-B1000, without causing damage to the new speakers? the Sony SS-B1000 has an Impedance of 8 ohms, and peak power of 120 watts.


Hi, As long as you like the way the speakers sound there is really no reason you cant use whatever speakers you want. To find out the approximate wattage of the stereo you are using look on the rear of the unit and you will find a tag that has " SPECIFICATIONS " on it. There you will see perhaps the a.m. and f.m. frequencies it's capable of receiving also there should be numbers saying something like" 100-240vac or 100-240v~ 50-60hz 1.2amp or 120watts.( if power is listed in amps only-1 amp's equivalent to about a hundred watts)Dividing the wattage by 3 will give you an approximate power out put. Example if your stereo draws 120 watts worth of 110 from the wall it will put out approximately 40 watts to each speaker. Changing from OEM speakers is all right as long as you don't try to hook up some 150 watt peak speaker to a stereo capable of just, say, 10 watts per channel. Doing this will eventually cause damage to the amplifier, not to mention causing about 30 percent total harmonic distortion-which take my word for you will know if you ever hear it! So long story short-use what you wish, just be careful not to overload the receiver-if the speakers are a bit to powerful for receiver you can lessen distortion by turning down the " BASS" as that takes the most power in a speaker. Thanks for choosing FixYa, I hope this helped-good luck, Prodzilla

    huge shared common space slot loaded box (size depends on sub 10", 12" 15" you need to clarify that please) the amp specs on earthquakes site say the phd5000 is rated at a max output of 5k watts at 1 ohm 3k watts at 2 ohm so, with 3 dvc 2 ohm subs you only have 3 options of which only 2 will be a usable solution:

    1. 3- 2ohm dvc series at sub parralel at amp = about 1.33 ohms at the amplifier this is the best option to get the most power to the subs as each sub will produce a 4 ohm load then wire each one to the amp the amp sees 3 4 ohm parralel loads which = 1.33 ohm so based on the amp specs you would be close to 1200 watts per sub.

    2. 3- 2ohm dvc wired in series at sub and all 3 subs series wired together very difficult to wireand will give you a 12 ohm load which is next to no power at all (not a viable solution)

    3. 2- 2ohm dvc parralel wired to each other and then at amp the amp sees a 1 ohm load and makes 5k watts max but you can only (REREAD THAT LINE! ONLY USE 2 SUBS IN THIS WAY) WHICH GIVES THE MOST POWER BUT ONLY USES 2 SUBS
