Hi guys,

Well I got my subs done, running 2 off a monoblock.

It was my birthday, and got a pair of 180w and 280 splits along with a 4ch amp.
I have a 4 gauge wiring kit, is there anything else I need for the install due to there already being 1 amp running 2 subs?

Cheers

Nice score, should sound good!

What power is the MonoBlock and what wiring do you have running to it already?

Depending on what you already have, you could either run a distribution block to both amps off a single run from the battery, or use the 4g wiring as a second run for the mono or 4 channel.

I would suggest at least 4 gauge for any Mono up to 1500W RMS, over that your looking at 0 Guage and need the battery power to back it up....so if your Mono is already wired up ok, use the 4 Gauge as a second run...

Make sure EVERYTHING is fused properly, nice and close to the battery

Cheers mate,

Subs (900w/300rms) are running off a 1200w/600rms mono.

So all up I'll have 2 subs, 2 amps, 1 set of splits, 1 pair of 2 ways.

So I'm looking at doing the 2 sets of speakers and adding the new 4 channel. Is there anything extra I should be adding to do this? Or do I just need wiring?

Cheers for the reply bud.

Sorry for the late reply, been travelling for work...

Yeah mate, sounds like you have it all covered....Have you got 4 Gauge to your Mono already? Another run of 4 gauge wont hurt...it all helps feed nice power to the amps

Also, how many RCA's are running off your head unit? Ideally 3 sets so you can tune it nicely off the head unit for SQ...but you can still tune it nicely off the amps and using high/low level converters

Hey mate, yeah the current wiring is 4 gauge.

Not sure how many RCA's my h/u is but it's a http://www.clarion.com/au/en/products/2 ... 21640.html
And I don't see anything about RCA's?

Cheers for the reply mate!

ok, looks like you have one set of RCA's for your 4 channel (may have to get splitters into the 4 channel to run your front stage and rear fill), and another sub output RCA for your mono.

Should be pretty easy to hook up...plus all 4 gauge, will sound good
