Why Four phono sockets? There are only 2 (red and white) on my amp?

They are front left/right and rear left/right.

I would only have to use the Red and white ones then?? As my sun is only 2 channel and all four speakers run off it.

Left (channel 1) front left & rear left
Right (channel 2) front right & rear right

also how does this sub out work, is this for the Sub woofer?

Yes that would be right. But you would lose the ablility to fade front/back, but that might not be a problem. Looking at that cable I would guess the Sub out is for subwoofer as you say.

That lead looks right..

Has the head unit got bass management? (internal x/o?)

If yes I'd personally give a think to using the head units own amps for mids/tweets, and your amp for a sub (or 2 ) in the boot....


Sub out-

I'm assuming the head unit has its own x/o and will send a sub bass signal out of socket A, to allow you to either use the speaker outs for mains, +1 amp and sub for sub use, or the pre outs + amps for mains, + amp and sub for sub.....

Re-read the manual as I'm not familier with this unit...

I'm guessing you don't have subs..

Usually they give you the sockets with a 'standard' connector at the other end when you buy the unit..

If you got them all you can just hack them up, or spend 20 ish to get the adaptors....

My system is the following.

I have the Front Speakers Running using the wires from the back speakers. The front Speaker wires are currently running the Subwoofer.

The Speakers are running on a Alpine MRP-T130 50Wx2Ch RMS The subwoofer is running on a Alpine MRV-T707 70Wx2ch RMS

The sumwoofer is running on 2 channels as its running off the two front speaker wires. As all the normal speakers are running from the rear speaker wires coming out of the head unit.

What about the crossover? - are you using the sub out from the head unit, or the front speaker out with no filtering?

My advice looking at your pics is:

buy the first lead and connect the front left/right to your Alpine amp, and your front left/right speaks...

Do you need rear speakers? - I only use a pair of infinity 6 1/2" in the front, and with a sub this is plenty - I've always found that rear speakers mess up the sound rather than help.

If you want rears, use the rear left/right speaker connectors from your head unit, and the fader to keep them quieter than your fronts.....

Then buy a lead for the sub out and connect that to your sub amp, and your subs...

If your head unit has a built in x/o then use it! - set it as low as you can, according to how loud you want to go and how loud your front speakers can go..ie: my infinitys are loud enough crossed at 90Hz, but my old kenwoods needed to be crossed higher as they distorted in the bass more at lower volumes..

If your head unit hasn't got a x/o then you really need to look into buying one...

x/o = crossover.....

Either your amps have these built in, or your head unit or you need to buy one......

You need to filter the bass from your mids/tweets, and your mid/tweets from your subs.....
