Hey

I have a 1990 Ford Ranger.

Im doing all the speakers in the truck Alpine.

2 Alpine 6 1/2's
2 Alpine 6 x 8's

Now, I have alot of bass from 2 solo barrics, but I want SQ too.

I was on crutch field and found this..


And found this for it...



Now, Im wondering.

Ill have 4 brand new speakers....so now with this Ill have 6 and 2 tweeters right?

Or so I put 2 new back ones and put the new ones for the component and only have 4 and 2 tweets?

Also, how do these hook up?

Can someone explain

:cool: ,

Dw

I could do that to....since theres no rear seats anyway, thats where the 2 solos go...so your saying hook the components up (2 spekers and 2 tweeters) and the regular 2 speakers?

Ok, Ill do that than.

Can you explain how?

Ill run an amp is I have to for the components...

nope the 6.5s are int eh door right? and the jbls are 5.25" right?

anyway the componets use 2 wires to go into the crossover buy only one leaves so its the same as hooking up one speaker.

then since you have 4 channels on your deck (left 6.5, right 6.5, left comp set, right comp set.) hook em to that

So you have a separate amp for speakers aside from your head unit?
If you have another amp, I'd run the 6 x 8's and the 6 1/2's off of your deck, and run the components off of the amp in the kick panels. Hookup instructions should come with the component speakers

You guys are tortuering me. Hey what you could do is go to www.onllinecarstereo.com and buy you a set of Diamond 5 1/4, okay this component sets have what is refered to a rear fill. A regular component set crossover has 6 outputs (2 for input, 2 for MID, 2 for tweeters), okay the Diamond crossover has 8 outputs(2 for input, 2 for mids, 2 for tweets, 2 for rear fill. Okay what is rear fill, well rear fill allows you to hook up those 6 X 8's, normally for a balanced system that would not be a good thing, cause most of the sound would come from the back and destroy you front imaging(okay maybe in a truck that is a mood point), but what it does is makes those 6 X 8's play 3 db lower than the front speakers. :thumbsup: Then you can hook up your Kick panels, and you rear fill, then all you have is the factory location which you run off the other side of a 4 channel amp. For a system you need this because you will fry your deck if you try to run Kick panels and factories. Lastly you can run 2 channels of a 4 channel amp for 6 speakers. Okay here is goes. Buy the Diamond Audio component set, which is 4 ohms, then buy 2 8 ohm 6 1/2 mid bass speakers and run them in parrel which will show a 4 ohm to 4 ohm load which parreled to itsef will give you a two ohm imp for the first 2 channels, then bridge the back channels and you got something for your subs. Or just buy a 5/6 channel amp and you got it. This was how my system was set up, but I went with a 6 channel, along with a 2 channel mono, cause I had some Focal tweeters in the dash, and those things take power. Good luck
