Ok so I'm confused....I've never had a sub before so bear with me here.
I bought the Pyrimid 6.5 on Amazon and need some help making sure I'm wiring it up right.
I've got a red/black and a brown/gray that came off the factory. It doesn't seem to matter which wires I use on the Pyrimid, all make the new sub make sound.....am I missing something? Do I just use 2 of the wires? Does it matter which two and where? Seems all make sound but so is there a correct combination that I'm missing here.
Ok so wen you touch the wires too the sub one is negative and one is positive... to find out the correct way you want it wen u connect the sub cone it should be moving outwards not inwards, if its inwards the setup is backwards... hope that helps.
That helps a LOT. Shows how little I know about subs.
So it seems that theirs a positive/negative for the black/red and brown/gray wires.
Do I just pick any two and tape up the other two or does it matter as long as I get + to + and - to -?
+ to + and - to - be careful when wiring speakers like that sub. I am a home theater specialist so not sure about cars but with some subs just hooking them up wrong like that and turning them on would break them which can be an expensive mistake. If you don't know what your doing just ask around for help that's why the forum is here best of luck
Ive got a question on here, Im going to buy this same sub to replace my blown factory one,,,, now the way it hooks up through the amp is thru the factoy wiring harness. Now it seems that wiht my new head unit the SUB does not do anything I can turn it all the way up or all the way down and nothing changes. Im no audiophile but Im guessing this is because its not wired thru the red and white cables on the back of my stereo that say SUB . Is this true or did I hook it up wrong, It would be great to be able to adjust the sub from the head unit!
You sure you have the head unit wired correctly? One way to check is turn on the radio and see if you get any sound from the sub, then put in a cd (or plug in the ipod to the AUX). If you get sound with radio and not with cd/aux you need to switch the blue wires in your harness.
Sub isn't controlled by the sub out on your head unit, however I'm sure you can wire it that way but would have to hook the factory amp up to the head unit. As you can see from the above post I don't know enough about this to give you an educated answer but since I just did the install I can tell you how I did it.
