I have 2 mtx 4500 series that come stock in a Camaro they have a pigtail that comes out of the back of the box that leads to the amp inside of the box I can't figure out how to wire this to my car without having to purchase the wiring kit online I wanted to try and cut the wires and wire it myself but I don't know which wires go to wear and I also don't know how to convert straight wires over to AV to plug in the back of my head unit I have a video detailing the whole box I wanted to try and hook it up to a stock 2001 Chevy cavalier I have a box on the back speakers to push a Av off of it to the amp but I'm trying to figure out how to get it from the speaker in the back of my trunk to the sub box I also have no wiring diagram so I don't even know where to get one I tried to look it up but can't find anything I'm at a loss and I really wanted to try and get these guys hooked up I know the subs work but I don't know if the amp works I'll just have to worry about that once I wired it thank you guys for all your help
Okay, so I have been doing some research on running a 14v or possibly a 16v system for my sub stage. I have found a lot of useful information, but I still have a few questions.
My plan would be to keep my factory alt and 12v battery for the factory electrical components, and then run two 270a alts externally regulated to charge at 14v or 16v (Undecided). I know if I do this I will need a bank of batteries at decided voltage (14v or 16v).
The amp I will be running is the Incriminator IA40.1, which can handle up to 19v. I will be running 6 Sound cubed HDS3 12s, which are rated at 1200rms a piece, Roughly 7200rms total.
I have found out my 12v and 14v or 16v system can share a common ground with no issue. So I guess my main question is, will running a higher voltage system cause added strain on the amplifier or alternators. I have read that higher voltage systems can be unpredictable, but from what I picked up this was only if you were to try to run a single system with step downs etc. and not have two isolated systems.
Basically what I would like to know, is what are the cons of running a 14v or 16v system over a 12v system. This will be my daily.. (kind of, I have a back up truck) but it is not a competition vehicle.
So I happened upon this clean blue beauty and for a price of almost half of all the others of similar year and mileage, I snatched it up.
My build plans with it are to move my current system from the explorer into this since i will no longer own the explorer in a short time. The equipment being:
HU- Pioneer DEH-80PRS
Subs- Two SoundQubed HDS312D2's
Amps- SoundQubed Q1-3500.1; AudioQue 90.4
Mids & Highs- CDT CL61A
Wires- All Sky High 1/0, RCA's, 12ga speaker wire
Power- Haven't decided on an alt yet, gotta contact singer, see what he's got. I don't think I'll go with anything over 300A on the alt. I'll have a D3400 under the hood, and I've got a D4700 i had bought for a cruze that I'll keep by the amps.
Hopefully I can get started on transferring it all this weekend. I've got duty saturday so i'll have all day sunday to knock it out. The only things that need bought are the D3400 and the alt. I'll post pictures as i go through the install.
edit: fixed the pictures
Alright so finally got around to "finishing" a build in one of my vehicles haha. I say "finishing" because it's as close to done without having the new alternator or battery racks built but it's sooo close lol. "Fighter Jet" reasoning will be shown through pictures, hopefully you get the meaning haha. Here are the stats:
2000 Ford Explorer Limited 5.0 AWD
Custom switch/gauge panel
SHCA RCAs, fuse holders, ring terminals, heat shrink
SHCA Green and Black 1/0
DC AUDIO 5K DC AUDIO 10k
4- Soundqubed HDC3 10s 4 - 18" DC Audio Lvl 6 18s, full Carbon fiber option
Anyone want to see some pictures?
