Re: Setting amp gain with OEM HU

You should set it right before the point that the head unit starts to distore. If you don't have an oscilloscope, then a sine wave recorded to CD should do the trick. 1000hz for components or middle...

My S600s tweeters are at -2 and I like them. Try it out. It's easy enough to change back if it sounds worse.

It is and you did it. You couldn't wire the two speakers together to get an overall load of two ohms, however.

It's fine, but your stuck with whatever crossover point (or a lower one) they chose for the stock subs. I don't know what the subs are crossed at so it might not affect your setup.

I think the consensus is that if you're going to buy new speakers, then you should buy a new amp. The factory amp has built-in crossovers.

I checked and it'll handle 2 ohm fine, so wire them in parallel. If that amp is overrated, then you might actually want a better one since the speakers can handle 250 RMS.

Series has more resistance so you get less current and power. This will keep your amp cool. However, parallel will give you more power, a lot more. 2 ohm to 8 ohm is a big difference. Read up on...

Your diagram is mostly right. Just twist the ends of your two positive wires together and plug those into the positive terminal of your amp. Do the same for the negative.

I'd say you answered your own question. If you can't tell the difference between the two positions, then it must be the same SQ for both to your ears. Place it however you want.
