Hook up 4 ohm subs

Hook up 4 ohm subs

The high-pitched sounds are guided through the crossover to your tweeters, while the low-pitched sounds are guided into your subwoofer. Connect the ends of the long speaker wires to the positive and negative output terminals of the crossover, placing the wire with the white stripe in the positive terminal as before.

If your subwoofer was not connected, skip this step. Finally, run speaker wire from the negative terminal of channel four to the negative terminal of subwoofer two. In hi-fi we have always impedance bridging. Tanks man nice instructions.

It's relatively easy

There will be four speaker wire terminals, or channels, which consist of both a positive and negative terminal with a screw-down clamping system to hold the speaker wire securely in place. An amp that is bridged sees half the impedance load to each channel. They are being run by a Crunch Powerzone amp.

By tugging on the wire, the insulation is stripped off and bare metal is exposed. Either get a different amp, a different sub, or live with getting only half the amp's maximum power.

Only has one speaker output. Tip Keep in mind that when bridging an amp, the resistance load measured in ohms is effectively cut in half. And it doesn't give me hole lot power. Connect the other ends of the speaker wire the input terminals of the crossover. Twist the exposed ends of the wire into tight spirals.

Subwoofer Wiring Diagrams

It's relatively easy to bridge a four-channel amp as long as you have a very basic knowledge of car audio wiring and how to connect an amp to your car's audio system. Place the white wire in the positive terminal, and place the other wire in the negative terminal. Both a tweeter and a subwoofer can be hooked up to the same amp.

Place this wire in the positive terminal and the negative into the other. The speaker wire consists of two connected wires.

If not, then you'll need a multimeter to measure them. Strip the insulation off the wires using the wire strippers. Disconnect the subwoofer from the amplifier by unscrewing or unlatching the speaker wire from the positive and negative terminals of the amplifier. Very high power levels may overheat the amp, but at normal volume it should be fine. This is to help ensure that you're not feeding the speakers distorted sound.
