Full Range Speaker Installation

This page is dedicated to Main Full Range Speaker Installation. This include 3.5", 4'', 5",  5.25", 6.5", 6.75", 7",  4x6", 5x7" and 4x10". The installation process is basically the same for all sizes of speakers. Unless it's a custom install in a location where the speaker is bigger or smaller than the hole it's being mounted in. Wiring will still be the same.

When it comes to speaker installation, the basics apply to all sizes. Such as wiring and mounting. Not only are there different sizes, there are also diffeent styles/kinds....... coaxial (which include a mid/woofer and tweeter, where the tweeter is mounted on the mid/woofers axis).  3 way (which can include a woofer, midrange and tweeter or super tweeter)  and 4 way (which usually includes a woofer, midrange, tweeter and super tweeter) all of which are still a coaxial design, the extra drivers are still mounted on the woofers axis. There are also component sets. These include separate mid/woofers, tweeters and crossovers. Some even are of a 3 way design, consisting of a separate woofer, mdirange , tweeter and crossover. These component sets require mounting the woofer, mid, tweeter and crossover separately and will also need more area/space to do so. You can also purchase these component woofers, mids and tweeters separately. Most speaker manufacturers that offer component systems also sell the components separately.  Most Mobile speakers have a 4 ohm rating, although there are some that have a lower impedence (ohm) rating.  These have popped up in the last few years.

4"x" Plate

Wiring speakers is pretty simple. Just make sure when connectiog the wires that you connect + to + and - to - . The longer you run the speaker wires, the thicker the gauge (lower numeric number) the wires needs to be, to prevent signal loss  and unessessary amplifier resistance. Normal size for main speaker wires is 16 gauge.  Again, the longer the wires are ran, the thicker the wire needs to be. When I install systems, I usualy use at least 14 gauge wire for the main speakers and at least 12 guage for subwoofers. If the customer wants bigger wires, I will use bigger wires. 14ga and 12ga will usually suffice for most systems.




Stay tuned, more to come!!!!
