    wireing doors and dash speakers together

    I just got a 4 channel amp and I am a little unsure how to wire my doors and dash to the amp. Would I just go amp to my cross over, then cross over to my tweeter and door speaker.. then the (-) from my speaker to the (+) on my dash, (-) on my dash back to the crossover??

    Thanks for any help!

    no....you should run your pre amp outs back to your amp (rca interconnects)....then from the amp you will run + to + and - to - to each of the xo's....then + to + and - to - from the xo's to each driver (mid range and tweets).



    I'm back to stock in my new car.....

    Sorry I don't know if I understood correctly. I have a component set on my doors plus I have the dash speakers. SO i'll need my tweet, mid range and dash all going off once channel. So I just though hook the doors and dash together???

    Your component set should have outboard crossovers, each with woofer/tweeter inputs, and an amplifier output. You run the + and - from the amp out on the XO to the + and - of channels 1 and 2 of your amp. Then run the + and - from each dash speaker to the + and - on channels 3 and 4 of your amp

    Yea I wanna run them both.. I was planning on getting a 4 channel amp for just the front but I can't afford it right now... Is it that bad of an idea to put all the speakers on 2 channels??

    Yes....keep the original impedance of the speakers. If theyre 4 ohms, run them at 4 ohms. Don't wire 2 pairs of them together for a 2 ohm load.

    Ok one more question! I would use my 4 channel for my 6x9's and doors. Now if I wanted to use my pos 2 channel amp I got should I just go from the output on the 4 channel to the input on the 2 channel?? only thing with that is i couldn't control that fade from front to rear right???

    Correct. That's the biggest benfit of having front, rear, and sub outputs.
