    Default Question!!! cabin amp and speakers

    Hi there guys,

    I have 6 beautiful db651's ready to be put in and also a pioneer 760 2 channel amp. I have decided after talking to a few of you that i am going to be running the rear 4 speakers off the amp and the bow speakers off the hu. will this be a good install? How should i go about wiring the speakers?

    Thanks!!

    Although a 4chnl would be optimal for running 6 in-boats, if it were I, using what I had, I would run 3 speakers per chnl wired series/parallel. This would be a 2.6 ohm per chnl load, and net each speaker about 60+ watts each.

    That's less then the a pair per chnl will receive, but IMO, better then leaving a pair on the head-unit.

    is that 60 rms to each? or max?

    If i looked at the right 2 chnl Pioneer, then yes, 60 watts rms to each speaker.

    so that should be good for the db651's then. correct? i am a complete door knob when comes to wiring audio equipment. is there any way you could make a diagram in the paint program or any other program and post it?

    thanks a ton!

    That's good respectable power across the board for 6 in-boats.

    I probably have one somewhere, but I could probably redraw it quicker then I could find it

    3 speakers per chnl: 2 wired in series, then they are wired in parallel with the 3rd.

    MLA,
    How would you address the inequity in power as distributed to the speakers so that you would have equal amplitude from all six speakers? Seems like the bow would play louder than the cockpit.
