I am fitting a 1000w Kenwood mono amp in a 2015 Lancer

Customer Question
Hi I am fitting a...
Hi I am fitting a 1000w Kenwood mono amp in a 2015 Lancer Evolution Final Edition, can I splice directly into the rear speakers as doing it this way it turns the amp on and off via signal sensing. They didn't manufacture the car with a rockford system, just the 6.1 touchscreen radio which Im happy about cos the Rockford head unit is RUBBISH!!

Are you referring to the input of the amp? You would wire the pre-outs into the amp. You can connect two subs either in parallel or serial, depending on the impedance of the individual speakers. If you do them in series, you are multiplying the impedance. If you wire them in parallel, then the impedance is the same as each speaker.
