If it is a 5.1 channel amp wire the center speakers together into the same port. wire the two front speakers in the or der that they would appear on the amp (such as left front speaker to the left front speaker terminal on the amp etc.) and do the same for the rear speakers. and all you should have left is the sub-woofer channel in which you do not have to worry about.

    would that not leave 600 w that i will never use ?
    dont know much about stereo's but could of bot a lot smaller amp if iam right

    yes, you would have 600 watts of amp power left over but you do not have to worry about that it will not damage the unit. All you have to do is when ever you get a chance to or when you want to get a subwoofer that is over that wattage and you will be good to go. The subwoofer is optional it is not a requirement.

Speakers cutting in and out at high volume

The amp is going into protect on the two channels powering the speakers. Turn down the gain on those two channels. You also may want to consider crossing over the speakers a little higher than they are now.

The rating on those speakers are way too high. 6.5's and 6x9's will take 50-100 clean watts tops before they start to break up.

The best solution to get it perfect is....unplug the subs. Turn the gain on the speaker channels all the way down. Then turn up the deck 80% as high as it will go. Play a song. Then increase the gain on the amp until the speakers are as load as they go without distortion. Shut off the car, replugg in the subs and do the same thing. Gain on sub channels all the way down, deck then to 80%, find a bass heavy song, then turn gain up until subs become distorted. If you do this procedure your speakers and subs will be "gain matched" to the proper levels.

Good Luck

I am wondering about car amplifiers, I don't know what kind to get, I have Alpine 6.5" 2-Way Car Speakers (SPS-600), 80 watt as my front speakers, and Alpine 6 1/2" 2-Way Car Speakers (SPR-17C), 100 watt...

I would strongly recommend that you get a 5 channel amp that puts out 75watts rms per channel that will deliver between 200-300 watts to the sub channel. I use planet audio amps myself and they run strong all day every day-maybe you could look at a planet audio vrx 600.5(5-channel) it throws 100w x4 and 200 or 300 to the subs depending on the resistance of the sub. Good luck

Distortion with HK AVR 144

This sounds like the amplifer is playing up. If the distortion is on more than one channel, you are looking at a faulty part common to both channels. If on one channel only, perhaps something in the pre-amp or power amp sections. Have a look inside, you might find a burnt resistor, which would cause it.

PIONEER 300 WATT CAR STEREO AMP WIREING HOW TOO

depending on how many channels the amp is, you may not be able to hook everything up to it.

usually you have a separate amp for subs. 4 channel amp for the speakers in the car, and a mono amp for the subs.

To hook them all up to the same amp you would need an amp with 5 channels. It wouldn't work out right.

If you have a mono amp its only for subs.

If you have a 2 channel you can either hook it up to the rear speakers or bridge them to mono to run the subs.


you need a channel per speaker basically.

I have 2 6x9 speakers up front 4 6 1/2 3-ways

Hello rjmiller4039,

Although amps with 5 channels are pretty rare, you can get one. Alpine, Boston Acoustics, Infinity, JL audio, MTX, and Polk all have 5-channels ranging in price from around $350 up to around $1,000. The Alpine PDX-5 will output 75X4 watts RMS for the front and rear stereo channels and 300 watts to the mono sub channel. It is priced at $599.99 at Crutchfield.

Hope this helps.

What amp do i need to power a Polk Audio db1040DVCin brigded connection, i only plan to run one sub, i want to bridge the sub for better sound quality, and i'm buying straight polk, what do i need

Hello oran1891,

OK, you don't bridge subs. You bridge amps, if they are capable of being bridged (not all are).

Bridging is a method of connecting the channels of a multi-channel amp in such a way that the amp delivers the output of 2 stereo channels into a single mono load.

The Polk DB1040DVC is a sub with dual 4ohm voice coils. You can wire the voice coils to present a final 2ohm load (parallel) or a final 8ohm load (series). The rated power range is 50-270 watts RMS. Since you can parallel the voice coils and have them present a 2ohm load to the amp, you are looking for an amp that provides a minimum of 50 and a maximum of 270 (round it up to 300) watts into a 2ohm load. The Rockford-Fosgate Punch 300.1 shown here for $170 seems tailor made for your Sub. If you can make do with less power and want to spend a little less money, the Orion Cobalt CO500.1 will deliver 250 watts RMS at 2ohms and you can buy it for $140. The punch is a better deal. If you decide to add another sub later, it will power them both with 150 watts each, a little low, but still decent. If you want a 2-channel bridgeable amp, I'd recommend the Kicker 08DX3002 shown here for $200. Note that in bridged mode, it is not stable at 2ohms, only down to 4ohms.

Hope this helps.
