    Default Wiring an Amp for Rear Speaker And Sub

    atm ive just got a standard cd30 setup in my vectra and am missing the sub at times i had in my corsa ive got it sitting here (actually is my sisters but never mind lol) it accepts both high and low level inputs so i can either wire it to the amp to direct or via a converter box but what i was wondering is that i want to bridge the rear output for a sub (a feature of the amp) but then that only leaves the front outputs to run the rear speakers off of(thinking bout possibly being a right chav and putting some 6x9's or somehting somewhere lol. what i was wondering was that if i wire the wires for the front high level input to the rears aswell as the rear inputs it would still operate correctly and therefore give me rear speaker signal tot he front channel on the amp?


    i know this is a crap setup but im trying to do it as cheaply as possible as im skint but am missing some bad boy bass from time to time lol

    Default

    While I imagine that might work, I do imagine that it would majorly limit the output of the standard speakers as you're only looking at about 25w per channel normally, so 12.5w if split between two channels.

    Give it a go though, you never know

    im not gonna gonnect the second et to the stereo output its going through the amp so power wnt be an issue and yh mate i looked at those i can either go with those or make my own tail up to use the high level inputs already available on the amp , not sure yet, i just wanted to know if there was a problem with having the rear speaker signal going to both the front and rear channels on the amp if you get my drift

    sup it all depend how far you want to go with it you could just run the speaker wires to the amp or amps and back out to the the speaker ie 2 1 amp for the doors and 1 amp just for the sub

    im not looking to spend much in the way of money tbh so am just trying to use what i have, what i want to do is bridge into the rear speaker wires and then lead them to the amp and connect the rear left to the front left and rear left high level inputs on the sub and so on for the right had side so i can use the rear output on the amp bridged for the sub and use the front speaker outputs to run an extra pair of speakers at the rear giving me 4 door speakers powered by the head unit and 2 speakers and a sub powered by my 600w amp. when i get some money i want to run uprated speakers in the doors powered by their own amp and a sub ( either in a box with an amp or an active box, maybe even a double lol) with a decent head unit but i cant afford that atm
