Trying to help out a friend.
They have a 2006 Mini Cooper Vert
It has the factory H/K sound system
We replaced the factory rear speakers with Infinity Reference 6.5" and the rear is super low?
The factory speakers did have 2 sets of wires going to them, which I just figured the factory speakers were dvc. So I only used one set from each to power new speakers.
They are pretty dissappointed with the sound qaulity and want to see if there is anyway to get better sound out of them?
Do I need to hook up all 4 wires to the speakers?
Thanks for your time
One more question
Does it matter which speaker wire I used from the factory amp to power the new speakers?
Remember there were 4 wires going to factory and now I am only using 2 of them
ha ha that might be corny but it made me laugh, cheers.
On a more serious note you might be better putting the HK's back in. HK has an amp that is tuned for that car and those speakers. Not only does it need 2 ohm speakers but one set of connections is for the midrange and the other set is for the tweeters. I doubt if you will get high frequency from the Infinity's connected like that. If the Infinity's are components you could ditch the crossover and wire the tweeters direct after you have confirmed which set of wires is which. If you are lucky the original crossover point (in the amp) will be close enough to the Infinity's crossover point that it will work. To check which wires are which connect the spares to the mid. You'll get no bass if they are the tweeter wires. Don't connect the midrange wires to the tweeters you may frazzle them.
