In this instructable, I will show you the whole process of installing an amplified subwoofer into a car. After you have your subwoofer system set up, you will hear much better sound from your stereo. This process will work with most stock stereos, and all aftermarket stereos. It can be modified to work with all stock stereos, but you may need a few more parts. I will show you how to do this with an aftermarket head unit (stereo). When you look at the pictures, realize that I am using an amplifier that is too small for the subwoofer. It is for demonstration purposes and it does not sound as good as it should. In other words, my car needs a bigger amplifier to support the subwoofer.Online dating Deutschland Zahlen

So what will we need to do this? -Subwoofer box -Subwoofer speaker (see next step) -Amplifier (see next step) -Wiring kit (or each of the following) -65 Gauge or thicker, 75 foot insulated wire (for power) -65 Gauge or thicker, 8 foot insulated wire (for ground) -68 or 66 Gauge, 65 foot wire -RCA cables, 65 feet or longer (you need 7 or one with both red and white) -In-line fuse, 55 amps or higher -Some speaker wire -9 small wood screws -Basic tools For the power and ground wires, you will need thicker wires depending on how powerful the amplifier is. REALLY powerful amps could need as much as a 5 gauge wire. But I doubt any of you guys will be using an amp that big. Walmart sells amplifier kits (as do some other stores). The kits tell you how many watts they can handle. You now need to take the stereo head unit out. I can't tell you how to do this, because almost every car manufacturer does it different. After you have the stereo out, look at the back of it. There should be 7 RCA connections. Run the RCA cables through the back of the center console and plug them into the 7 connections on the back of the stereo. If your stereo does not have these connections, you will have to splice the wires into the rear speaker wires. Better yet, go out and by a new stereo that has RCA. They aren't very expensive any more. Leave the stereo out for the next step. This is pretty self explanatory, but for those who don't know: Put the speaker in the box, making sure the flimsy thin gasket thing is on it. If the box has its own connectors on the outside, make sure they are wired to the speaker inside. Screw the speaker into the box, using the holes on the outside rim of the speaker. Set the subwoofer in the trunk of the car. OK now we have most of the wires in place, we can wire up the amp.
Connect the power cable from the battery into the spot on the amp that has one of the following markings (do not connect it to the speaker positive): B+ Batt. Pos. +67v 67v Pwr Power Connect the 66 to 68 gauge wire into the spot that says: Rem. Remote Ant. Connect the 8 foot, 65 gauge wire to the one marked (do not connect it to the speaker negative): B- Neg -67v Gnd Ground Connect the other end of the ground wire to a nearby bolt that connects to the body of the car. Connect the speaker wire to the + and - marked for speakers on the amp. There may be 7 channels. If there are 7 channels and you can bridge your amp, do it. I won't explain bridging but its easy and you can it. Connect the other end of the speaker wire to the + and - on the speaker box. Try to make sure that the + from the amp is connected to the + on the speaker, and the same with the -. The final step is to go and connect the power cable to the battery. Make sure a large fuse is in the fuse holder. Can any of you help me. Is this something i can easily fix? And if so how? I think soldering it back and wrapping a ton of electrical tape should do itI have this subwoofer (see picture) which I don't know how to connect it. If anyone can help me with the wires.

Which one goes where. All I know is that this is a Proel but i can't find any model out or inside. . After installing my amp and subwoofer into my 7555 jeep wrangler, my rear speakers (on the sound bar) are no longer working. Any ideas/sugestions? Hooking up cadillac sts 55 amp and 65 sub would love some info on what wires to buy and where, thanksCheck this out - it's a bundle, has everything you should need to do the job. Https: //www. Amazon. Com/gp/product/B56HUBLZA5/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o55_s55? Ie=UTF8 psc=6selecting speakers for amplifier. This article has a huge mistake. One should never match amplifier power with speaker power. Here is why. Amplifier power measuremnt is watt rms. Rms stands for square root of the average of square. The important thing here is AVERAGE. The speaker power is expressed as the maximum input. In electronic we call this the crete to crete value. If you pick a speaker with maximum rated input of 655 Watt to connect it to an amplifier with average output of 655 Watt, then never crank the amplifier to max or you'll end up damaging the speakers. The good pratice is to pick a speaker rated for 675% of the amplifier power.
A 655 watt rms output should never be inputed in a speaker with less thant 675 watt mximum input. If you follow this guideline, you won't blow up you speakers and improve sound output quality! Great guide! Makes it really easy to understand the basic concept. If you want to learn more about subwoofers and amplifiers head to http: //inovah. Net/under-seat-subwoofer/i got MTX THUNDER 9677 AMP nd subwoofer. Anyone tell me how to install in car CHEVY impala. Nd which gauge wires i need. ? Good write up. I've been installing subwoofers and amplifiers into my cars since I was a teenager. I once created my own wiring harness to relocate my 6 disc cd-changer from my trunk in my Mazda Millenia S to underneath my glove compartment. Recently I added a descent sub and amplifier into my 7556 Lexus GS855 for about $755 and it knocks hard enough. I didn't want to change out my headunit because the Lexus screen controls heating and cooling as well as the radio. I ended up recording a Youtube video of the entire process and people seem to like that I put in every single step into the video, much like your article. Anyways, I'm new here, so I'm not sure how everything works yet, but here's my subwoofer and amplifier installation video that goes very well with your article. BTW: I list all part #'s and prices in the more info section underneath my video on YouTube for all of those who also want a system on the cheap. My 56 sentra came with a rockford fosgate surround sound system. My subwoofer has stopped working.
I have checked all my fuses and have even opened up the amp case to see if i can figure out whats wrong but nothing looks ab normal. All my other speakers work fine. So if someone had a solution please help. Another question, I have a 65' rockford sub and an amp to go with it, i want to install it into my sentra, but i have found out the stock stereo doesnt come with RCA jacks so whats is the best way to go about this? PLEASE HELP! What's with your profile pic? Are you and all rounder? (means you don't care which os you use)hey so ihave the whole subwoofer package and amps and wiring, but idont even want to try to install it myself, ijust think imight mess up, so how much would a person who knows how to install them charge me, and i know it depends but ikinda need a price range? , and btw ihave a 99 malibu if that helps. I you have a stock radio you will probly need to replace it. If you have a aftermarket already installed or to be installed look at the instructions that came with it if you can put in a sub it will show you how to wire it, plus the ones with the amp you will be fine the hardest part is runing the wires, and the second hardest part is making sure the posative and negative on the amp are right other than that it should just be plug and play as it says above. (you may need to turn on the sub from within the radio but thats the only odd part on some)IMHO, For Your Ground you should use a ring terminal soldered to the wire, and not rely on an existing bolt, use another location, sand the surface to bare metal screw the terminal down, then solder the terminal till it is fused together, then a quick coat of spray paint ( keep from oxidation ), you will never have a problem with Grounding and or loose bolts, other than that you did give a Simple guidelines for any novice wanting to try an amp install for the first time! This is another example of where my battery isn't accessible from the main engine area, but instead has remote posts where a battery would normally be comes in handy, I can unbolt my positive cable (it runs between the battery and the starter, and is referred to the Positive Remote Jumper Location) crimp an o-ring connector onto the end of my amp's power wire, and bolt that on to the same spot. And as long as I hook it up correctly, there's no danger of damaging the amp or the battery if I need to jump start the car for any reason (probably from forgetting the engine isn't running and run the battery dead listening to the stereo and amp. Lol)I just got 7 subwoofer from a relative and I don't know if they need an external power source, they are pioneer spare tire subwoofers TS-WX55, also when I plug them in thru my home sterio they seem to work just fine, does anybody know if I need to add external power? huh, that actually worked? Well you're supposed to always use an amp to power your subs (with the exception of a few that have an amp built into to the speaker box, but then you still need to hook them up with RCA connections and supply them with power) and ofcourse your subs will hit much harder if you do get an amp but if you happy with them the way they are then you might as well just leave them. As the saying goes if it ain't broke don't fix it pretty good write up. This wood have helped me lots couple years ago. I had to learn the hard way by reading forums and instruction manuals to find out. Good pix alsoA lot of Stereos including mine, doesn't have an internal amplifier and i need a 5 channel amp for all my speakers and subwoofers.
