Changing speakers in 11 speaker model

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have the 2016 mkz with the 11 speaker (base), and I found out the rear speaker amp is just for the rear deck speakers and it is a monoblock amp. The speakers are also 2ohms so if I swap them out and from the amp connect leads to a subwoofer would it work? Could anything really go wrong if I try it.

Hello, Jakevandee what size subwoofers.

If I just hooked the amp up to a 12 inch subwoofer.

I have the same system and I really don't think it will move the subwoofer.

The way I did mine was to connect a high low converter on the rear deck wires and connect an aftermarket amp.

Id assume the amp is at least 200 watts. And if it’s the same bass level as the stock ones that’s fine it’s just they don’t have very good dynamics and really fall off around 40 hz which is where the bass notes in my music tend to be.

Do you have a wiring diagram for the stock amplifier?

Yes, I do but I moved to a new hose and most of my stuff is still boxed and stacked so I really don't know where they're at now.

Do you know how many watts the amp is or any of the specs other than it is a mono block and 2 ohms?

The OEM amp is 700 watts total for all speakers.
