^^^^ they are not the hi energy like the front

one sub

now my prob is my head unit has two rca outs
one front
the other is rear or sub out

im using the crunch to play front doors and rear doors

how do i hook up the sub amp without a cross over??


the whole reason for this is my old Eclipse headunit died
it had 3 rca outputs one just for the sub amp

this is already installed in my monster 4runner --im just trying to fig this out --and im short on coffee

got the kenwood headunit for free so its what i have to use as of now unless i break down and buy a high end headunit with outputs


any links or clues

thx guys

looking at the specs of the head unit it has built in crossover. So just hook up the RCA from the rear out to the sub amp. Then do the cross over setting in the head unit.

or
You can Y the front outputs but you will loose front to rear fade. But this is good cause it gives you the ability to adjust volume of the sub via the front to rear fade in the head unit.
Thats the cheapest way.


The way I would do it, cause I want to be able to fade, I would buy a good cross over that has 1 in and 2 outs low high pass
something like this
