Re: EL Ghia premium sound system

the yellow RCA should be the one for the sub, I believe it's usually plugged into the 3rd channel input, are you positive the subs workin?? Try plugging the RCA into input 3 and see what happens...

Umm perhaps the back speakers a running straight off the HU and the subs running bridged off channel 1 & 2?? Usually the back speakers run off channel 1 & 2, while the sub runs bridged off 3 & 4. I'm thinkin whoever had the car before you might have rewired the system to get more power into the sub and just run the back speakers off the HU. That's my guess anyway...

Re: EL Ghia premium sound system

Traditionally A/V triplets have red/white/yellow groups...

The red and white's are the audio and the yellow is the visual? Is everyone sure it's not some sort of visual RCA for a Nav system or something?

Re: EL Ghia premium sound system

the back spks are workin and the subs work coz i have put my kenwood sub on the amp when i unplug the red or white one of the back spk stop work and the sub is not as loud there must beed a link in the amp to link ch 1 and 2 to 3 and 4.

are the rcas a low level output or high level output coz i mite put in my kenwood amp and use that insted of the ford amp. just need to know what output the h/u has.

Re: EL Ghia premium sound system

becuase the 3/4 channels are bridged, there is no need for the 4th channel RCA to be plugged in, after ripping out the whole interior from an EF Ghia thats what we concluded :)
I'm wondering how it'd go powering a single 10" sub.
