Stereo System Install/Discussion
I have a feeling Santa is bringing a shiny new stereo system for the obs and wanted to start a thread for questions and display.
What will be going in is the following...
Deck: Dual 200 watt stereo with bluetooth, ipod compatible hands free calling
Subs: 2 12" Rockford shallow mounts dual voice coil 4 ohm
Speakers: Front:kicker 6.5" back: Kicker 5x7
Amps:Quantum Audio that i have had for a while, using this for the speakers
Boss r6002 1200 watt two channel with a nifty bass control
the subs are going into sealed boxes and the kit is being wired with 12 gauge speaker wire 12 gauge RCA (set for each amp) and 4 gauge power wires(true copper)
Now for the question!
On the system i had in my previous truck i only had one sub and didn't have to worry about impedance and all that stuff, now on these two subs there is a few different ways of wiring them up.
Should i wire the subs for 2 ohms 4 ohms, series or parallel, any suggestions would be appreciated.
Also on a side note, any easy fixes for the arm rests on the door to keep them from flaring out, really bothers me.
Thanks and Gig'em
