I hope nobody gets mad about this question but I am a newbie trying to install his first amp and sub-woofer.
First of all, I'm not looking for the best sound system I just want to have something a little better than the stock speakers on my 2001 Toyota Corolla.
So, today I whent to Walmart I bougth a cheap Dual 500w sub-woofer:
12" Single 4 ohm SD Series Subwoofer
Peak: 500 watts
RMS: 175 watts
Impedance: 4 ohm
Black foam surround for high excursion
Stamped steel frame
Rubber magnet boot
2" Voice Coil
Sensitivity: 88 dB
Frequency Response: 28-125 Hz
And this Subwoofer I plan to use it with a Jensen LXA600 I have sited in my garage:
The Jensen LXA600 power amplifier is a four-
channel 600-watt total system power automotive
amplifier. The LXA600 includes:
• High level inputs
• Continuously variable low pass or high
• Bass boost feature
• Remote turn on/off
• Electronic protection circuitry to protect the
amplifier from short circuit, DC offset and
• Unique, super-efficient heat sink design
• 4 x 75 watts RMS per channel
(4 x 125 watts peak)
2 x 200 watts RMS bridged into a 4 ohm
• Bridgeable design to direct full power to two
So, this is what I got and have no idea about how to start the installation. I have been reading all over the net, but I'm getting more confused about everything; ohms, bridges, channel modes, etc. Basically what I want to do is to add the sub-woofer to my car and keeping the stock speaker, but I'm not sure if this is a good idea or not.
Can some one provide me a quick guide about adding the amp and sub to my car?
