Can the BTA6100 be mounted inverted to the bottom of the rear shelf found in most sedans?
I don't want to take up floor space in the trunk with a subwoofer.
I have the base stock four channel stereo. I've replaced the stock speakers with Polk Audio DB6501s in the front and DB651s in the back doors. The DBs are 4 ohm. If I install a BTA6100 which is 2 ohms per channel what is this going to do to my impedance matching for the rest of the system? I am thinking I will reduce my impedance for the rear doors, which is where I was going to get the signal for the BTA6100, to something less than 2 ohms. Will this give me an imbalanced sound stage?
Sorry for the long winded post, but I want to make sure I am doing the right thing.
Thanks for any and all help!
Welcome to the Bazooka Forum. Before you decide on a mounting location for the Tube, you will want to make sure that you are fulfilling the corner loading requirements of the Tube, if not, output will suffer.
Installing the Tube does not change the impedance of the existing speakers. You are not powering the Tube off of these speakers, only creating a signal source.
Please post back with any questions you may have.
