    Adding 2 speakers to my original 2 speaker setup?

    Hi guys,

    Basically i have an old car with only two front speakers and no rear speakers in. Ive update the head unit so it now has 4x50w outputs. Two outputs are linked to the front two speakers. How do i wire 2 more speakers from the amp? I want to use the 2 free outputs available but I'm not sure how i connect them as the head unit as a special adapter with all the plastic casing and stuff around it. I don't want to wire them in series with the front two speakers.
    I hope this makes sense

    thanks

    You don't have 50x4 you have 8-12x4

    It can say what it wants. That a max spec, it don't exist. The best head unit only put out 12-15

    Yes but it's a gimmick. A made up number to make new people think they are getting something they are not.
