    help wiring crappy scosche 10" subs

    Kind of piggy-backing off another thread I started, however I ran into a new problem..

    I just bought 2 of these:

    Amazon.com: Scosche SW1004 10" 450 Watt subwoofer: Electronics

    I also bought a sub enclosure made to fit 2 10" subs,
    the enclosure itself has 2 easy quick connects on the back for running pos and neg speaker wire to it. However the 10" subs themselves has some weird looking metal bracket mounted where the speaker wire is sautered on. It's shaped like a U with 2 tiny holes through the arms. they are easy to bend. The speakers came with absolutely no wiring instructions, and I want to know how I am going to attach the wire correctly to the speaker.

    The inside of the enclosure has some sort of metal arm similiar to the ones on the speaker, but almost looks like I could crimp a spade connector to a wire and slide it over, then bend it.

    Sorry, best way I can describe the scenario.

    Never wired speakers to this type of connector, i'd almost be tempted to just twist the wire around the brackets, and just bend the arms in with needle nose pliers, but there has to be a neater way.


    thx.

    you either need the connecters crimped on the wires then plugged onto the sub or go the better route and just solder them on.

    Re: help wiring crappy scosche 10" subs

    here is the sub wires i made - you can see the installation of the female disconnect terminals. you'll need a speaker wire pair for each sub to connect the sub to the terminal inside each side of the box. i recommend 14awg wire which will work with the blue female disconnects.



    solder is your friend


    heat shrink is your friend


    split loom is also your friend







    secured to the subs



    have you been helped by me? i'd love to know. shoot me a PM.

    Re: help wiring crappy scosche 10" subs

    nice pics hope... How do the blade terminal connectors stay on the terminals? The just slide over and then bend them with pliers? Sauder them together?

    The connections on the inside of the sub enclosure are definitely for those blade connectors, but the ones on the subs themselves, are definitely not! They are very wide and not shaped the same, almost like two separate posts, connected at the bottom in the shape of a "U"
