    unbalanced speakers, advice?

    Ok I have a Sony MP40 head unit on the back of it there is 3 phono outputs 1 is for front audio one is for rear audio and another says "buss in". My first question is what is the 'Buss in' used for?

    I am running 2 6 inch speakers in the front doors, 2 6x9's in the back and 2 12" 1200w sony P15 Subs. I currently have the subs running off a 700w amp and the phono's for that amp are plugged into the 'Rear Audio' phono's on the head unit and my 6x9's are running off another 260w amp and the phono's for that are connected to the front audio phono output on the head unit. The front two speakers are connected to the head unit.

    My problem is the front speakers sound realy quiet and are almost unoticable. First of all I tried to fade the sound to the front but this made little difference and just took bass away from the subs. I am using oxygen free speaker cable for my 6x9s and just cheap stuff for the front speakers but tommorow I'le re-wire the front speakers with the same better quality cable and im hoping this makes some sort of difference. But I was hoping to eventually run my front speakers off another 2 channel amp but if I did that where would the phono's go in my head unit?

    Have I wired the phono's wrong or something? and is there anything else I can do to make the front speakers match the back a bit more?

    The front speakers are sony 180w and the 6x9's are also sony 320w 4way.

    Any help is greatly apreciated.

    1st off, looks like you only have front and rear preouts... looking on crutchfields site for that deck and it says 2pair, basically, wat i would sugest is power the fronts with the Front Audio rcas and sub with the Rear Audio rcas (rears off deck if u wish)...until u get a new deck, get 1 with 3pair (front/rear/sub) 4v preouts u will b MUCH MUCH happier with the clarity of everything.

    "Buss in" is an auxillary input you can plug a changer or other source into. I agree with desi that you probably want to amp your front 6.5's and run the 6X9's off the head unit rear channels.
