match your total rms output at the resistance you will be running the amp at to the subs.
if your amp puts out 300w RMS@ 4ohms, then it will produce 600w RMS@ 2ohms. half the resistance, double the power.
So now that you know your available power, you should get speakers that will be used to the fullest at that given resistance.
If you have two 4 ohm subs that have a power handling of 300 watts, Then you can wire them in parallel ( + to + and - to -) to get a 2 ohm load (which will be 300w per sub with the above amp) or in series (+ to - to + to -) to get an 8 ohm load. (300w amp @ 4ohms = 150w amp @8ohms = 75 per sub).
Keep in mind: choose the speakers to fit the amp, not the amp to fit the speakers. If the amp has more power than the speakers can handle, you will blow them. and ALWAYS USE RMS WATTAGES.
Hi stephen my names Josh. Its great you could find a second hand manual for the cda9830 and theres not any difference your manual will tell you need to know about the cda9830r as well. Your amp hook up will be very standard speakers and sub will match very well with the that alpine in your car.
The CC-2502 is a bridgeable 2-channel amp. If you want to drive normal speakers in stereo, the best would be a good set of components with separate woofers, tweeters, and crossovers. They are available in many sizes from most car audio manufacturers. I'd begin by finding out what speakers fit the location where you intend to mount them. Then I'd browse the speaker selections in that size at www.crutchfield.com. You can also use the "outfit my car" feature to browse only the products that fit. Then select a pair that has a power range and impedance to match the amp: 250 watts RMS at 4ohms or 450 watts RMS at 2ohms.
If you want to use the amp in bridged mono mode to drive a subwoofer, again Crutchfield has a large selection of subs and some enclosures already fitted with subs (loaded). The amp claims 850 watts RMS into 4ohms bridged, so look for a sub that has a power handling rating of at least 850 watts and it needs to be 4ohms.
Pyramid makes the PB series of amps. I have one that's driving a Sub.
The PB 700 puts out rms 60watts x 2 @ 2ohms, which gives you some "headroom" for your speakers. You don't want to over drive speakers with , for example, a 1000 watts for 100 watt speakers, because that's a good way to blow your speakers.
There are many brands and models of amps that will fit your speakers. Just make sure the amp will drive 2ohm speakers, since your jbl's are rated at 2ohm impedance.
You may want to consider adding a Sub woofer to your setup. A single Sub would fill in the low end very nicely. If you got a 4 channel amp, then two channels will drive your jbl's, and you can bridge the other two channels to drive the Sub. That would be a kick'n sound!
Just make sure the amp is bridgeable
For example, the Pyramid PB 1200 is a 4 channel, bridgeable amp. This particular amp will drive the 2ohm jbl's, but you would want a 4 or 8 ohm Sub connected to the bridged channels.
IF U HAVE A REG CAB U CAN BUY A TRUCK BOX MOSTLY FITTING 2 10INCH SUBS, AND A AMP UNDER YOUR SEATS, OR IF U HAVE A LARGER CAB THEY MAKE CUSTOM FIT BOXES BUT THEY WILL COST U MORE, OR U CAN GET A BOX FOR 1 12INCH SUB FOR A TRUCK AND U CAN PUT IT ANYWHERE U WANT.
I would be very proud of that truck as the sub that came with the truck was only a 8". The only one that works is the factory model as it is a 1 1/2 - 2 ohm speaker; replacements are 4ohm. You will have to replace the amp as well if you put in an aftermarket sub. Oh and apparently the amp will have to have "speaker level" inputs as opposed to pre-amp inputs. I have a 1999 Eddie Bauer wih a blown sub and I'm trying to decide what to do as well. The speaker is $400 with tax in Canada! Good luck.
