    Sound sytem diagram needed! Electro buffs help me!

    Hey guys i need a diagram drawn up for my new sound system.

    I have the following items

    2 x amps
    4 x speakers
    1 x head unit
    2 x 12 subs in 1 box

    i am just using the stocktweaters in the door.
    My car is a astra 1.8 2003

    I would really appreciate any diagrams or discussion.

    many thanks.

    you will need the fused power cable form the battery to the amps either 2 seperate cables or split the cable in the boot so you only have to run the one.(for cable sizes you will need to work out power wattage, etc)

    two sets of RCA cables from the head unit to the amplifiers

    the remote lead from the headunit to the amp split in boot then to the 2 amps.

    you will need to ground both amps off

    then run the speaker cables from the amp to the speakers and the same with the subs

    Hope this helps.

    IMO it will sound rubbish with 2 sets of tweeters in the front
