Question about Kicker Solo-Baric L7 S12L7 Car Subwoofer

I have a problem with my car speaker/tweeter

Hi, i own a 2009 mitsubishi colt and there is a problem with my car audio system. I have a jvc headunit (4x50w), with edge front and rear 13 cm component speakers (70w rms), i run a combined 10 inch edge subwoofer and amplifier in the boot.

My system sounds fine when i have the volume at 18 however this is far too quiet even for classic fm especially with road noise etc, Past 18 vol i hear a distortion like sound from the front left tweeter or possibly front left speaker, the speakers are new and ive just had them fitted. The wierd thing is when i select the right only channel via my head unit i can have the sound past 25 which is really loud, even for my liking. but when put back to normal (bass 0, treb 0, and channel set to centre or at 0) the distortion type sound appears again.

Any help would be much appreciated. thanks tom c

Sounds like you have the ground and live possibly the other way around from the head unit to the speakers. The reason for you hearing it from both the tweeter and the speaker is that the tweeter is connected in parallel to the speaker.
Swap the wiring and try it.

Connect JVC MX-GT88 speakers to a differant reciever


If it has a bi-amp, you can connect the speakers to it. By the amplifier, if it's a stereo with bi-amp, be sure that it has at least 400 watts and up in order for the speakers to turn out great, if a receiver like a integrated amplifier, it may have like 2-10 connections, you can connect the speakers all together if it has more than 3 connections, if below 3, you may need to take the speakers apart and make it 3 way by connecting one wire to the tweeter, another wire from the tweeter to the main or mid speaker then one more wire from the main or mid speaker to the sub.

JVC KD-R616 Car Audio Receiver wiring the speakers without the amp


The Front left and right speaker lines as well as the rear left and right speakers are marked on the output wires of the car stereo. These are marked and the positive line will be usually the wire with the same colour but with a line.
You can connect these individually to the speakers one by one... use the car harness if available.

SP-UXV30 speakers


Hi,

Offhand, the tweeter can be rated similarly to that of the woofer but not lower than 26 watts. I think your concern should also include the physical mounting and size since most branded units would be using proprietary components/parts and are not readily available.

Most electronics parts store would be carrying "generic" tweeters and "as per sample" would be your best basis. If I understand it right, **** Smith in Australia would be similar to Raon Stores in the Philippines or Akihabara in Japan.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I found that they can hold up to 6 1/2" speakers and 2" tweeters. I'm not sure the specific mounting depth but i can almost assure you there wont be any 6 1/2" speakers that require a whole lotta space
