Hi, Can I hook up a 2 channel amp with no headunit by combining the front left and right speakers, and the back left and right speakers and running them into the amp that way? I was given an old jensen 2 channel amp so I would like to use that. Also what is the rca part used for? I was going to just run wires from the headunit harness since its not being used anymore into the trunk for the amp.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. And I did search but everyone seems to be using 4 channel amps.
Wholly crap thats alot of equations but least now I know the difference. The amp I have is the jensen a82. On the back it says, "12v negative ground . Use 2, 4 or 8 ohm speakers." It also says, " Do not connect right speaker negative to left speaker negative or to car body (ground). So I guess that throws out the idea of putting them in parallel right? If I put them in series will I be ok?
THanks again and if I had 20bux to give you I would just go buy a 4channel amp hehe im poor
Edit: I found out from ready on vwvortex that the stock speakers in my jetta are all 4ohm each. I also have tweeters will those pose a problem? The amp is a 40Wx2 stereo amplifier.
By doing so I would only be able to change the balance left to right not the fade from front to back, am I right? I want to hook them up to control the fade from front to back. forgive my newbiness.
I dont want mono sound that would suck. I thought if it was done that way I could have the sound set in the middle in windows ie not all the way to the left or not all the way to the right, thus I would have sound coming out of both the left and right speakers, front and back. I am probably just confused here.
If you conect both back speakers together , than they both get the same sound.Originally Posted by skippy911
Same for front.
If you plug it that way , its techicly stereo, because 2 different sounds. But its mono because we create a stereo effect earing sounds from the side of our heads, not in back and front.
