  • newbie wiring question

    Ok i am installing two full range boxes in a truck, each with a speaker and 12" sub. I also have two different amplifiers (one is a 400w visonik other is a 200 jenson, each is 2 channel 2ohm stable). My question is how can i wire these 2 amps to both boxes? Would the attached diagram work?

    blah mixing & bridgin amps FTMFL
    fullrange?...?

    my best suggestion with that equipment would be 1 amp per sub or just use 1 amp period on both subs.

      it sounds like he's making a 2-way speaker cabinet like home audio. Personally i wouldn't do it but ifyou really want to then i'd on chan to a woofer, the second chan on the same amp to the second woofer, then on the other amp wire one chan to the 'fullrange' speaker and then the other chan from the same amp to the other fullrange speaker.

                  I hope the OP wasn't run off.

                  On a constructive note. If the two speakers are going in the same box, seperate the enclosures. Make it so that the sub has it's own enclosure and the full range speaker has it's own as well.

                  Wire up the sub amp ONLY to the subs and the full range amp ONLY to the full range speakers.

                  Since its in a truck, I'm guessing he's looking for some more volume as most trucks a very limited on the number of speakers...especially if it's a single cab and it's an older truck.
