View Full Version : Help wiring coxial speakers
10-28-2013, 10:39 PM
How would I wire 4 4 ohm svc coxial speakers to a 2 ohm load on a zx350.4 kicker? The rear speakers will be easy to get to but the fronts will make it harder? Ill run front speakers on amp 1 and rears on amp 2 thanks

Could I just use a jumper wire at amp positive to positive negative to negative? Would that create a 2 ohm load at each speaker

do a search, just run all 4 speakers at 4 ohm off that amp imo

Well I'm trying to get a 2 ohm load on each speaker to get more power out of amp just trying to simplify it for wiring up front speakers? Since I'll have to run positive to positive I don't want to run a jumper to the other front door in for a parral load

So you want to use 2 channels of a 4 channel amp to drive 4 speakers? Or if you have 2 amps, are you trying to bridge an amp to each set of speakers? What kind of speakers are you trying to blow?

Lol its 1 kicker zx350.4 4 channel so it has amp 1 and amp 2 which is the 4 channels I want to run the 2 front coaxials on amp 1 and the 2 rear coaxials on amp 2 2 ohm load- I plan to buy some aq pro mids and maybe pro tweeters? Or just run some kicker coaxials

If I run amp at 2 ohms on each channel I'll get 90 x4 and 100 watts rms on each mid range aq driver that's what I'm going for

A single 4 ohm speaker can only be a 4 ohm load. You can buy 2 ohm speakers, or you would need 2 speakers in each door to reach 2 ohm load

you have 4 ohm speakers not 2 ohm speakers..... you can wire two speakers together to get a 2 ohm load, but it'll be dividing the power into two speakers therefor halfing the pwr. hope that makes some sense

Ok so I can't wire them up like Subwoofers I thought wiring them down to 2 ohm that it would make more powerful like dual subs to equal a 2 ohm load? Could I not use a jumper wire at on 2 channels left positive to right positive and right neg to left neg for front speakers? Like they would be together in each door? The rear deck speakers I could wire together

What would be the best way to run 4 ohm pro mids front and rear And One Set of PRO 4 Ohm SUPERTWEETERS Without Passive crossovers? Also would like to use factory tweeters in dash?

model numbers or amps? and model of car? model numbers of speakers? why do you want two diff types of tweeters? what headunit?
i'd prob guess that getting two 4 channel amps should have you covered. for what you are trying to do, you need a lot more research

Well I'm keeping factory hu on a 2006 Honda civic coupe it has factory premium system already but going to bypass factory amp and replace door speakers and rear deck speakers but I want to keep factory tweeters up in dash so I don't have to mess with pulling them out and just adding some extra tweeters to doors and run these off a kicker zx350.4 4 channel and my kicker subs off a kicker zx750.1 I'm going to use either kicker ds65 6.5 inch coaxials or run some Audioque qp-m65 pro audio speakers and super tweeters

get a nice set of kicker splits for the front, put the mids in the door and the tweeters in the factory location, get a pair of 2-way or 3-way speakers for the rear in the fatory locations. also i'd suggest you change your headunit first.
