Default Amp/speaker question.

I just bought a Pioneer 760 watt amp. I was wondering how I would hook it up to my 6x9'* so that it drives the subwoofer part of it. There are four wires that come out of the 6x9s. I'm not really sure what wires to hook up to it, and how to bet more bass out of the speakers. Any suggestions?

you need to firs tell up how hamy channels the amp is and see if the amp is TRI mode capable. I wouldnt do it, because the RMS out of each channel is prolly low already, and will rob too much power and might give you a weird ohm load

It'* a two-channel amp. What is TRI mode?

Sorry, I'm an audio noob.

Are you nuts??? Those 6x9s are gonna be toast after a few minutes of music
You do realize they are rated at maybe 20 watts? right??

380watts x2 is a little outta there power handling. Why don't you upgrade them and then amp the new 6x9'*?? Get a good set of Infinity'*. They sound incredible when hooked up to a good amp.

Forget to finish your sentence?

The speakers handle 80 watts RMS, the amp puts out like 110 RMS. I'm not sure if that is pushing it too much. I could keep the levels down until I get some subs.
