Okay, I am going to be adding this sub/amp combo
(MTX Bass Package RTP202 2-channel amplifier TCE4512A enclosure with one 12" subwoofer at Crutchfield.com
) to my 2001 Limited WJ.
I have read a lot on this and other forums and still have a few questions.
I will be using the PAC SNI-15 line out converter (PAC SNI-15 (sni15) - Line-Out Converters - Sonic Electronix
According to this forum (WJ Sub Install - Stock Head Unit w/ Infinity Amp + New Amp Added - JeepsUnlimited.com Forums
), it says to wire it like this...
Attach from the LOC to the correct wires on the smaller connector on the infinity amp.
Attach Right + From LOC to Pin 1
Attach Right - From LOC to Pin 2
Attach Left + From LOC to Pin 6
Attach Left - From LOC to Pin 7
All that makes sense...according to http://www.wjjeeps.com/radio_ampdiag1a.jpg
the wires are easy to find.
Here are my questions...
1. Is there a signal wire on the LOC or just the 4 speaker wires? From the photo, it looks like there are 2 gray, 2 white and 1 brown. The gray and white go to the speakers, but what about the brown? In the jeepsunlimited link, it looks like his "extra" wire goes to pin number 3 on the small connector, is this correct?
2. In the past, when installing the mtx amp, it has had a blue remote wire that connects to the head unit to be turned on and off when the HU does...do I still need to connect that wire to anything or will having the LOC do the same thing? If I need the remote wire, where do I connect that to?
3. This might be a long shot, but since my tweeters in the dash are bad, could I rewire the front door speakers to where the tweeters plug in on the amp to get highs from the front and then splice in the LOC to where the front door speakers are on the amp to get the lows for the sub?
I'm not super familiar with how all this is set it, this jeep is only a couple weeks old to me so I might be way off here. Just curious cause right now I get no highs up front of the jeep since the tweeters are out. Or I could just keep it simple and replace them lol.
4. If I remember correctly, the new amp has 2 +/- so would it be possible to run one to the sub and one to the front door speakers so I can pick up highs and lows from it, or would that be too much power for those speakers to handle?
Thanks for any help, I know that was a lot.
