I picked up a 30ft roll of speaker wire today for really cheap from one of my friends.. he had it left over from his build, so i picked it up. All in all, is 30 ft of wire enough to run from BOTH front speakers to the amp in the trunk? I remember reading it is approximately 15ft for each?
When I wired mine up, I used one piece that was about 20 feet long (passenger side speaker, across the firewall then back to the trunk) and one that was 15 feet long (driver side speaker to the back). There was plenty of slack back there for my set up with my 4 channel amp on the drivers side of the seat back. 30 feet total would have done that location if you were very careful, but I'm not sure if the amp is mounted on the other side.
Protip: If you don't know what you're doing, don't do it.
30ft was about 5ft too short lol. Oh well... bought more wire. After taking the day and installing my 4 channel amp (bridged) to my front speakers, i got finished and fired them up. NO SOUND. of course. My amp is getting current according to the multimeter, but i get no sound from my front speakers.
i double checked grounds, power wire connections, speaker wire connections, solder connections, EVERYTHING. only thing i have not checked was the back of the HU b/c i didnt feel like taking off the dash again... My other amp and subs work and draw current obviously, but i am baffled by getting no sound from the speakers up front.
