I believe I blew my HU. I bought me a set of Kappa (2Ohm) components. I hooked them up to my amp and now my unit sounds like crap! I've never owned 2Ohm speakers before. All my other speakers are 4 Ohm. Should I have bridged them at the Amp??

thanks
Joe

I took the speakers out of the equation and the HU still sounded the same.

is the HU running speakers? or are all the speakers being ran off an amp?

hooking speakers to an amp won't blow your head unit. maybe the amp, but not the radio. sounds like timing and coincidence.

I am running the typical setup. HU (RCA's to AMP): AMP (wires to speakers). The Amp is fine. I've hooked up a different stereo and kept the 2Ohm speakers out of the equation. Everything sounds kosher.

speakers hooked to an amp will not blow the head unit.

sounds like an amp/speaker problem. what channels are the 2 ohm speakers on?

Had them hooked up like normal channel #1 +/- , channel #2 +/-, etc...
Channels #1 and #2 are for front 2Ohm speakers, Channels #3 and #4 are for rear 4 Ohm speakers. My amp is fine. I'm running a different HU and put the previous component speakers back up front (4Ohms).
