2016 Armortek audio system speaker question

Post by John Grima » Thu Jun 22, 2017 7:33 pm

While working on two tigers (an 2004, and 2016 early) Both of these models are using the current 2016 audio / electric motion package. I see on the module that there are only outputs for one speaker. Is this system designed for one speaker, or are the two speakers patched into the same output?

I.E. Red to Red, Black to Black?

Hi John , you will need to wire two of the Armortek/Tanoy speakers (or similar ohms value) in series using the single twisted pair, observe the polarity regards Phil

Both the Benedini and the amplifier are mono, so only one set of speaker connections.

You can wire two in parallel but watch the overall impedance.

Hello,

Hi John, i just see that the new Armortek sound module have only
two wires for the speakers, one green and one yellow ( older module have 2 pairs of wires ).

Adrian: so you have to connect the yellow and green wire to one of the speakers?
And put a separate wire between the two speakers ( connect - to - and + to + )
is that correct?

Is that also correct that there are only 2 modules now in the option packs?
I have only the sound and motion mudule.

Regards Yves
