This thread possibly should be in the incar entertainment forum I guess but Utes are different kettle of fish when it comes to speakers.
I just replaced my CD player with a Pioneer MP3 and was playing with speakers and noticed the Pioneer 6" dual cones in doors are not working properly .When I faded them from the 4"spks in dash I had to turn volume up to 60 (max)to hear them.Does this mean they are shorting out somewhere??or maybe pos and neg wires are crossed?previous owner did a boggy wiring job and all wires have stripes.
Has anyone installed a similar system in their ute?? should I just use the 6"spks and disconnect the 4"dash??or maybe reverse them .(as you can see im no electronic geek )Any advice will be appreciated thanx guys .
I kept my original head unit 6 stack had a Phoenix Gold amp connected to it with Phoenix Gold & Precision Power speakers and tweeters all done by DB fever in Brunswick. All buttons on steering wheel is the same everything has been retained...you might want a 2nd AMP if you want to run a sub...
How about running splits, and mount the tweeters on top of the dash at the base of the A pillars, with 6" speakers in the doors.
HI JOHN i did Precision Power speakers 6 1/2 inch with the tweeters in the top pillar were the standard ones were bit those pillars cover for the splits come on the premium or prestige package only..can be bought for about $20 each i think..
OK guys have the problem solved.(I f in doubt consult ya friendly Autobarn techhead).Pioneer headunits have this nifty feature called *F.I.E. which when selected cuts high and mid range frequencies from rear spks.only. Low range frequency is allowed thru in rear spks.(god only knows what benefit that is ) F.I.E. cannot be turned off using the remote (as I was trying to do ) I t can only be turned off from the head unit switch.(and here is me thinking I had an excuse to justify buying an amp)
