This is pretty self explanatory, but for those who don't know: Put the speaker in the box, making sure the flimsy thin gasket thing is on it. Now loosen the three power screws on your amp. The speaker power is expressed as the maximum input. Remember to twist red wires with red wires, and black wires with black wires. You will then connect the remaining positive terminals of each woofer together with a lead extending off the final terminal to be fed into the amp.
Plug the power supply into the wall and switch it on. Do not use a battery charger as these can damage your equipment. A custom build subwoofer or speaker box such as fiberglass etc I'll emphasize each later. Secondly if u run a car sub thru your home amp a u need to make sure the impedence is the same all aus home amps r 8 ohm and car is 1-4 ohm so u need 2 4ohm subs in series for home amp. You're far more likely to spend the bulk of time than actually plugging in a pair of cables. Generally you just need to upgrade your alternator, and the Big Three, wire to the alternator.
Connect the wires to your subwoofer and the care amplifier. Installing powerful subwoofers into an older vehicle puts a big strain upon the metal panels of the car, and the welds holding the panels together. Keep in mind that rooms in the home, especially large ones, will not have the same effect as a car.

Connect the 3 foot, 10 gauge wire to the one marked do not connect it to the speaker negative : B- Neg -12v Gnd Ground Connect the other end of the ground wire to a nearby bolt that connects to the body of the car. Congratulations on the enthusiastic hard work of both the author and the many contributors to this instructable.
You can connect them to the brackets underneath the terminals on each appliance. If your receiver or amplifier has enough variety, you should be able to handle most any subwoofer out there. It is a fact of life that under the carpets of most motor cars is moisture, brought in from the outside atmosphere and trapped by the carpet. Is it possible to somehow adapt a car subwoofer for use with a home speaker system? The good thing is that the amplifier used in most active subwoofers is not very good; therefore, a cheap car amplifier is more than adequate to replace it. You can also choose to use a.
In general, they also deliver more power into four ohms and can be used with a single four ohm woofer other combinations are possible. Amplifier power measuremnt is watt rms. I have a 4 Gauge Wire and a Volfenhag Capacitor. For a truly intense surround sound experience, you need 2 speakers on the left, 2 speakers on the right and 1 in the middle. Now stick one end in the main power connector's green wire hole and stick the other end into any black wire's hole.
You could also easily blow a fuse by using the little ones the fuse box has. Then sand the fiberglass and put some bonds and sand that. Just basically how the image provided by Maxi explains it. But I can think of only a couple of stereo receivers, integrated amps and preamps that have a built-in crossover. A single woofer of eight ohms or with dual four ohm voice coils will also give the needed load. Also I ran mine off a Pioneer 100 watt Stereo house recvicer. Install it so that when your get your wires to it, it will be ready.
It usually requires you either take off the front of the center console, or you use a tool to slide the stereo out of special clips. This wire tells the amp that the stereo has turned on, and that the amp should too. Bigger ones like 15+ inch ones, are very loud compared to smaller ones at the same wattage, but have slow response, and make the sound more mushy. Strip the insulation off of the wire at the end where the battery is. A speaker or amp can only be run on the peak power for about a minute before it goes bad or overheats. This is video guide How to easy way connect car amplifier or active car subwoofer in home yours. The bigger ones also handle lower frequencies better too.
