    ok. another n00b question. how to hook up a 6 channel?

    Headunit kenwood kdc 895

    I'm looking at picking up that audison LRx 6.9 and maybe those old mb quarts 6.25s.

    I have no idea. I've never used a multi channel amp before.
    I would be hooking up 2 tweets, 4. Coaxials and 2 components. (I might add more components)
    I might change that up. I don't know. I just figured since I maximized my sub stage. I'll go crazy with the front stage.
    But what RCAs would I need? Sleeze said I would run a 4 channel rca or 2 2 channels.


    Ok. I see that my HU says it has 6 channel pre amp outputs. But 2 of them are for sub...so should I safely assume that a 6 channel amp is used for full range speakers + sub?
    Can I use the audison 6 channel like a 4 channel?


    Thanks for the help. Feel free to rip on me for the question haha

    I just need to know if I should be looking at a 4 channel or if I can make use of that 6 channel. Can I hook it up to my HU?

    Kenwood Excelon KDC-X895 CD receiver at Crutchfield Outlet

    it says my HU has 6 channel pre amp outputs.
    but 2 of them are for the subs?


    I guess what I am looking for is a simple answer.

    is a 6 channel amplifier used to power all full range speakers? or is it meant for full range + sub?

    Yes, get 2 Y-splitters to make the 4 front and rear channels 6. I had to do that with my JVC sub channel thats a mono.

    You can use the Audison's 5-6 channels as either a sub bridged or as another set of fronts/rears.

    ok. Thank you SO MUCH. I have a sub amp. So. I would like to use the Audisons 5-6 channel as front/rears.
    To do that. I need to...

    Run 4 channel RCA's? or 6 channel RCA's with 2 the Y splitters?
    Can explain it. I am sorry. I just really am having a hard time with this. Subs are easy. But this whole front stage is the hard part.

    Not sure about the pass through, but if you use the y splitters you will need to run 6 rca's to it, another 2 for the sub amp.

    I already have the Sub RCA's run. The car is done. Just looking to upgrade my front stage from HU to amp.
    do what mylow said, run a set of 4 channel rca's to the front/rear, then a small rca run from the out to the other 5/6 channel in.

    I'm out so I don't give you more dumb advise on amp outs, lol

    No. Its quite ok. Thank you for the advice. I really didn't know what to do. I am going to PM sleazebagger to see if the audison has out's. Since I can't get a image of the RCA's by searching.
