    Is there anywhere where I can get a instruction manual/diagram or something for wiring subs to amps etc..

    Also.. What is the best combination to have speakers wired into the Head unit or amp, I have:
    2 'fly' 6 1/2" 120W

    (plan to have)
    2 190W 6 1/2" in doors

    and
    Clarion 600W (Dual Voice Coil)12" Subwoofer

    Try THIS it might help ya...

    Usually with the amp I think you usually get an installation guide...Failing that, I think I have an Cadence Amp manual that shows ya stuff in PDF form...

    Combo wise...I would get a 4 channel for the speakers and a monoblock for the sub.

    Depends on the amp really, how many channel etc.

    I've got 4 6" running off my headunit and 2 subs running off my single amp. Not a problem yet.

    Well.. I went to Autobarn this afternoon to see how much all this would cost me.. and had a big shock. Salesman told me:

    Sub
    Box
    Amp
    Wiring

    All in a kit for $429
    talk about :eek: but instead of another fortnight for the gear, give it another couple of months lol

    i would wire it up like this

    1. run the fronts off of the head deck
    2. buy a 4 channel amp and run your rear speakers off 2 channels (1 each)
    3. with the spare 2 channels bridge them and run your sub.

    cheers
