Can I wire front and rear speakers together?
It doesn’t work that way. It would be HIGHLY INADVISABLE to “combine” the outputs. Parallel wiring the positive & negative wires from two separate output channels will more than likely destroy your output stage.
Can you splice together speaker wire?
There are a couple of ways to splice speaker wires. One way is to twist speaker wires together and use electrical tape. But tape wears out over time, and the smallest tug on the wires can easily separate the connection. The better option is an in-line electrical crimp connector (also known as ‘butt’ connector).
How do I hook up my amp to my front door speakers?
There are 3 basic ways to get a signal to your 4 channel amplifier:

- Connect a line-level adapter to the radio then use RCA cables to the amp.
- Connect your radio to the amp using RCA cables directly.
Can you connect more than 2 speakers to a stereo?
Summary of Connecting 2 speakers There are only really two ways to connect 2 speakers to one amplifier – either in parallel or series. If each speaker has an impedance of 8 ohms or more, then you can generally connect them in parallel.
Why does speaker have 4 wires?
So, why do speakers have 4 terminals? Speakers have 4 terminals to allow for bi-wiring connections. Speakers with 4 terminals offer split connections, which creates two sections. Compared to speakers that have 2 terminals, the varieties that have 4 are capable of bi-wiring.
Is it OK to solder speaker wire?
Don’t even mess with soldering it. There is simply no need. It doesn’t matter if it’s stranded or solid. As long as you have enough gauge(16) you are golden.
Can you run 6 speakers off a head unit?
Re: 4 channel headunit powering 6 speakers A constant 2 ohm load placed on 2 of the 4 channels of your head unit could kill it unless it’s rated for this, most are not. If you connect two 4 ohm speakers in series the result is an 8 ohms load on your head unit.
How can I add more speakers to my stereo?
Wire a two core speaker cable from the amplifier out to the first pair of speakers, then wire from the first pair of speakers out to the second pair of speakers. You should have two speaker cables at the amplifier, two cables at each first speaker and one cable at each of the second speakers.
What kind of radio wire does a VW Jetta use?
Installing into the standard Volkswagen radio system is much easier than the premium models, as you’ll see in our car audio wiring guide.

Where are the speakers located on a Volkswagen Jetta?
The rear Jetta speakers are mounted into the rear panels for this early generation and build of Volkswagen. The next generation of Jetta had multiple stereo types, depending on the build.
Can you put a double DIN stereo in a Volkswagen Jetta?

There’s changes to the single DIN layout of the Volkswagen in this generation. There’s more space than the previous year Jetta, so you can install a double DIN stereo if you need to.
What’s the best way to splice a speaker?
This is hands-down the most reliable way to extend & splice speaker as when done properly soldered wire is extremely strong. To begin, follow the wire cutting & stripping steps from the first section (using crimp connectors). Cut & strip the speaker wire (at least 1/2″ length of bare wire is needed).
