Question by NeedAudioCarHelp: Car audio stuff!?
A very useful lad answered my previous question..but I don’t understand…
“THE HEAD UNIT WATTAGE DOESNT MATTER, WHATS MORE IMPORTANT IS THE VOLTAGE OF YOUR PRE OUTS,
THE POWER OR SIZE DEPENDS ON WHAT KIND OF SOUND YOU ARE AFTER.
ASK THE GUYS AT YOUR SOUND STORE FOR A DEMO THEN YOU DECIDE.
YOUR HEAD UNIT
CONNECTS TO YOUR AMP VIA YOUR PRE OUTS(AND TO YOUR 6*9S IF YOU HAVE A MONO BLOCK AMP)
YOUR AMP CONNECTS TO YOUR SUB (AND 6*9S IF YOU ARE GOING TO USE A 4 CHANNEL AMP),
IF YOU BUY A NEW AMPLIFIER MOST COME WITH FITTING INSTRUCTIONS THAT MAKE IT DEAD EASY TO UNDERSTAND.”
That was his answer.. my NEXT QUESTION is:
Whats the pre out he refers to in part “CONNECTS TO YOUR AMP VIA YOUR PRE OUTS(AND TO YOUR 6*9S IF YOU HAVE A MONO BLOCK AMP)”
Answer by Gurman S. Sandhu
Okay bro that guy is confusing but let me lay this out for you
im guessing you’re hooking up your car’s amp to a sub and your head unit?
Okay well you connect your headunit (deck) using RCA cables which go into your PREOUTS (the red and white plug holes int he back of your headunit). Then the other end of the RCA cables goes to your AMP and then your amp hooks up to your subwoofer with Speaker wire.
If you are hooking up the amp to your speakers.. same thing except instead of hooking up your speaker wires to the sub you hook them up to your Speakers (not recommended unless you have Aftermarket speakers that can handle your amp)
Hope i helped.
