    Icon14 What Is The Best Way To Wire These?

    Ok guys new to the forums, but very familiar with audio stuff. I have an 05 Silverado single cab with a Pioneer headunit, I'm currently installing Kicker KS series component speakers. I just wanna get your thoughts on wiring them up? Let me word that better, I am putting one set in the doors and another set in the kick panels with Q-forms. I want to wire them the easiest way possible without putting too low of an ohm load on my amp (600 watt 4 channel) the speakers are 4 ohm. I hope I gave enough detail to get a good answer! Thanks in advance guys!

    Couldn't you just wire one set to each of the 4 channels?

    Don't see why this wouldn't work...

    Re: What Is The Best Way To Wire These?

    Is the amplifier rated to run at 2 ohm?

    Well there you go, just wire two sets to each channel then you'll be running each channel at 2 ohm and will be getting 150w.

    derp derp

    Re: What Is The Best Way To Wire These?

    Thanks man, now if you don't mind how about wiring them into the door? I want to wire the kick panel speakers into the door speakers, if I just tap into the factory door speaker wires will this affect the ohm load, sound quality or any of that?

    Re: What Is The Best Way To Wire These?

    I would definitely recommend running new speaker wire, don't use the stock wiring bro...

    Re: What Is The Best Way To Wire These?

    Stock wiring ***** huh?? I've put thought into this before but now I may have a good reason to do it, just cut it off behind the head unit and run some new stuff to the doors??

    No reason to cut the stock speaker wire. You'll be sending signal to the amp via RCAs. From there, you'll just run new speaker wire to the speakers. Can just leave all stock stuff in place.

    Re: What Is The Best Way To Wire These?

    You shouldn't be near that wiring anyway, you should have RCA's going from the HU to the amp, then the speaker wire goes from the amp to the speaker.
