The magnet size only matters for low tones, i.e. base, the larger the magnet the deeper the bass note, so no magnet size is not a factor with these used for mid range sound frequencies. The main thing is that the speakers are good quality brand with platic cones is prefered, a 4 ounce magnet will do the job

I have a 1984 glstron boat wit a 70 hp motor with a 13x15 pitch prop. and have to play with the power trm to get boat to plane out. How do I know if I have the right pitch prop.?


You do not tell us the size of your boat. I sounds as if you have the motor set too high in the transom. Does the motor just rev up and not move the boat or does it lug down and not seem to have enough power? More info, better ideas.

My mids and highs have cut off but my subs still work


are mids and highs amped? if so check fuse. many people forget about fuses. if running off head unit only, then the internal amp in the stereo in probably burnt up. if this happened you can run an external amp from the front rca outputs and problem solved with better sound than before!!

How much air space is need for a sealed encloser


are you sharing the air space or building a divider to give each driver its own air space

these speakers or not made for low end bass these woofer are meant for mid bass high bass
  • 6.5'' High Power Subwoofer
  • Non-Press paper Cone
  • Specially Treated Foam Edge Suspension
  • 1.5'' High Temperature Aluminum Voice Coil
  • Magnet Weight: 40 Oz
  • Impedance: 4 Ohm
  • Fs: 80Hz, Qms: 4.05, Qes: 1.3, Qts: 1.2, SPL: 87(dB), Vas: 6.8(Cuft)
  • Mounting Depth: 3"
  • Rubber magnet Boot Cover fers are
  • there is only 3 " of mounting depth needed i would build you door pannel out fiberglass a door pod and mount them on the door if you have a factory speaker there . then run to the amp and turn the x-over on to high pass and them use them as a mid bass driver up front for the front sound stage for get about them as a subwoofer get the lanzar 10's or 12's

    i mounted a set of ma audio 8" subs on my 03 s-10 door the speaker fit in the 6.5 location had to trime the door metal and space them out a little cause the 4.75 mounting depth.it worked and then i ran the them in 2 ohm stereo to my 4 channel amp and used the high pass crossover to run them as a mid bass driver works great for me . ma audio 500 watt dual 4 ohms 8" subs each i had 250watts to each sub.

    you could build a small enclosure just big enough to fit the 6.5 woofer you could build a dual camber enclosure like 8wx5dx8h internale air space would be 0.18

    15 wx5dx8h would give you 0.347 share the air space this is internal air space

    I have 4 wires, red (power(, black (ground), green (speaker), gray speaker...the stereo has these same color wires...so I connect the corresponding color. The boat has NO yellow battery wire that is on the...


    (http://inform3.kenwoodusa.com/manuals%5CKTSMP400MR.pdf )
    Here's a link to manual and wiring on page 30 on the PDF file.
    Yellow is constant power from battery, for memory etc. Red should be to switched source.If need be, you can connect both to battery, but remember, you'll have constant power draw on battery when stereo left on but switch turned off, and will draw battery down, if you forget to shut it off, and leave the boat. Speaker negatives to black should work but I would advise hooking my 2 right and 2 left + speaker wires from stereo together, then to one of the speaker positives,right or left for better sound. Fronts will usually supply higher ( high and mid range), and rears will supply lower sounds (woofer) Joining them together will give better sound usually, when only using 2 speakers, on a 4 speaker stereo. You may want to test with them joined and not, to see what sound you like better.

    Powering 4 6x9 speakers, need amp


    Hi firstof all your deck isnt really putting out 52 watts x4 more like 17-22w rmsx4 ,companies like to throw out some crazy numbers it seems. If your into Kenwood try out a KAC-8404 4-channel on the mids/highs that will put 50 w x4 rms at 4 ohms or if you wanna go a lil louder try the kenwood x600f that will throw 100w rms on each 6x9 at 4 ohms no problem. My system is very similar to yours but running 4 pioneer 5x7's in all the doors and powering it with the 8404 its loud and clean ,fan cooled and no problems at all. My subs are a pair of 15's soundstream t-4's powered by an Alphasonik pma2500a its throwing 800w rms on each sub running in stereo at 2 ohms.It can drown out the mids if i set it that way but my mids /highs cant take as much power as your kenwoods can or else id step up to the x600f too.

    2 channel amp to 6-6x9 wiring diagram


    Hello magoocsl,

    Yes, with the use of 2 high-pass and 1 low-pass crossovers, that Kicker amp will operate in what they call stereo and mono simultaneously (SAMS). You'd run 4 of the 6X9's in mono. Wire them in series-parallel with a low-pass crossover on the positive leg to the amp. The amp would see a 4ω load. The other two 6X9's would be wired as stereo, one to each channel with a high-pass crossover. Again, the amp sees a 4ω load.

    Here's a link to the appropriate wiring diagram. The diagram is on page 5. Just substitute your 4 6X9's wired in series-parallel where they show the "mono" speaker.

    http://www.kicker.com/sites/default/files/02KX300_400_500_800_2AmpManual.pdf

    Hope this helps.

    Proper mode settings


    Hi bongodboss

    The user manual for this amp has good instruction on how to connect it. You can download a copy from here.

    Page 9 has info about using the amp for "bi-amping" The amp is only a stereo unit, so to do a 3-way system, you will need at least 1 amp mono in bridge mode for lows, and other stereo amp for mods, and another stereo amp for highs. You could use the internal low pass filter for the bottom end, and a 2 way crossover for the mids and highs. Much simpler doing a 2 way system with composite bins for mids and highs, and subs for lows. You only need the 2 amps and use the low and high pass filters inside the EP2500. If you need anymore help on this, I am happy to talk to you more.

    regards

    Volume turned up, kenwood shuts off briefly...


    I had this same exact problem when my last older Kenwood Marine stereo cooked itself while I had it up loud for a few weekends on the lake. (smelled like it had burned inside). I went out and bought a new Kenwood KMR-550u stereo deck. (I do not have an additional amp). I hooked it up to the exact connections where my older Kenwood stereo unit had been hooked up, as I never had a problem with this for the past three years until it failed after smelling of burning elelectrical. I had chalked the problem up to heavy rain we had one day. Every time I turned up the volume, sometimes up to 27 out of 35 possible, or 29, or 32, the stereo would suddenly shut off as if I had turned it off. After a few seconds the stereo would come back on, but unless I was quick enough to turn down the volume it would do it again right away. Of course on a boat, we were beached in a cove and the engine was not running when I encountered this. I searched the internet finding hundreds of similar complaints and several dozen theories of all types, but only a couple that pointed me towards the power (voltage) idea as the problem. I put a volt meter on the positive & negative wires powering the stereo. I watched as I gradually turned up the volume, the voltage on the power wire gradually decreased from 12.5 volts, down into the 11 range, and as it hit 10.9 or 10.8 volts it shut off typically around a volume of 32. The red power wire in my boat that never seemed to have an issue with my old stereo until it fried was determined to actually be inadequate for the power flow for the new Kenwood, and probably was the culprit of my failed older unit. I offer this sound advice: Run a new pair of positive & negative wires directly from the battery (with an appropriate fuse of course (the deck has a 10 amp fuse in it's back so I would use that at the battery) to the stereo. Check the voltage as you turn the volume up into the high 20's and low 30's to ensure you are still getting voltage in the mid to high 11-12 volt range. The stereo is designed to require a minimum of 10.8 volts to operate, and when it drops below that it protects itself and shuts down.
