Bose tends to use low impendance drivers (1-2 ohms). Without knowing the impedance of the Bose speakers there is no way to know your final load.They are wired parallel. No cross overs to these as rears. The 4 ch is 2 ohm stable and I could not make a definitive conclusion after reading the article enclosed previously.
I cut power to the original amp, ran 12ga through the vehicle to the 4 corners of the sound stage. Focal something components which are 6.5” and 1”. I blew the focal tweets and replaced them w hertz 1”.
Rears are also focals in a 6x9 configuration but added back in the Bose 3.5” in parallel.
Rf t400x4 which can deliver 85wx4 at 4ohm. This is close to the speakers recommended input, same w the fronts. 75-80 front 90-100 or so to rears.
Before adding the 3.5s I could turn volume all the way up w no distortion. 5v preouts on the jvc kwv960.
Sounds amazing, just curious after reading the first post of this thread.
The Bose 6.5s and 6x9s are 2ohm. I’ll have to assume the 3.5s and tweets are as well as I cannot mm them w out removing the rear deck and pulling the speakers. Plus I can’t find the tweets in my garage.
1.33 ohms is the final load of a 2 ohm + 4 ohm speaker run in parallel. I assume you have one 6x9 (4ohms) + one 3.5" Bose (2 ohms) hooked up to each of the rear channels. If that is correct, then you have a 1.33ohm load on each of your rear channels.Is 1.33 the load presented by all 4 speakers on the back deck?
Good luck. Keep in mind if the 6x9s are free air, then you're going to cancellation. You may want to block that 3.5" hole.Yeah that’s all making sense now.
Imma pul that Bose out.
That’ll leave an escape hatch for the sub pressure to escape through.
Grassy ass amigo.
Free air means the 6x9s are not in an enclosure.Will that outweigh the potential benefit of venting those 2 12s that swallow 800w each at 2 ohm? Or maybe I should be concerned of blowing the bottom out of the 6x9s?
I do have the 6x9 regular rings too if what you’re saying is an issue. I have no idea if those 6x9s are free air..
