Hey everyone i have 4 4x6 inch speakers at 60watt rms and 4 ohms, and also a set of 6.5 inch compenents at 90watts rms and 4 ohms what kinda sub should o get 4 channel or what and how would i wire 6 speakers to a 4 channel amp or do they make 6 channel amps? any input would be welcome
you can wire 2 pair in parallel off of one channel, but you'll have to add an 8ohm resistor to keep it at 4 ohms. i'd think it would sound funny though. theres an example on the jl web site unter tutorials.
jl makes a 6 channel amp, but its only 45 watts X 6 at 4 ohms. thats the only 6 channel i know of.
are you trying to make is a true 6 way system or are you just looking for loudness?
well i dont really know this is how the truck came when i got it, i added my subs and there is already and amp to the 6 speakers but it is only 2x 30watts and i am upgrading and would like a little more bang to keep up with my subs if you know what i mean, i was thinking may be i should wire the four 4x6's together and have the component set by itself may that will work.
You can buy 4 channel amp that's 75w - 125w rms. Most of them are 2ohms stable in stereo mode, so you will be able to pair up the 4x6 speakers with channels 1 and 2. Then power your other 2 speakers with channels 3 and 4. If you're into sound quality, then look at Zapco/Arc Audio/Xtant/US Amps/Orion/JL/PPI brands. If you're trying to save money, then try Audiobahn/MTX.
