no, not mud flaps on the back, the little things on the front of the wheel well. "air diverter"

sorry to resurrect a dead thread. just got a 21 silverado. how did these plugs hold up long term? i see the sharp truck ones say they don't work on the back, and another thread said they were too short for the back. Wondering if they fell out over time or anything wonky. thanks!
Got the second one in. Definitely adds to the system. Still not the 12 I was used to in my last truck, but I just need to realize with where I want these speakers placed, this is what I have! Thanks again for all the help. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
Thanks for the response. I thought with this screen we could BT somehow Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
Thanks for the response! I've done some more research on my equipment. The speaker is DVC wired in the box to 4ohm. I also dig deeper into reviews of my amp where people with more equipment and knowledge than me tested the amp and got about 120 watts out of it. So with all that. I should be able to lower the output on my amp (tune well) and "daisy chain" 2 Identical speakers. This would keep the amp 4 ohm to match the speakers and not over power them. The second sub will be in tomorrow, so we'll see!!! Amp: BOSS Audio AR1500M Armor 1500 Watt, 2/4 Ohm Stable Class A/B, Monoblock, Mosfet Car Amplifier Speakers: Pioneer TS-SWX2002 8" Shallow-Mount Pre-Loaded Enclosure I know it's not a killer system. But it's affordable and with one speaker it is about the bass of the bose system. 2 should be all I can handle. I have one in the center console now, and will put the second under the back seat. Thanks again to everyone that helped! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
Thanks. I think that's where I screwed up with this. RMS of the amp is 563w at 4ohm. 1125w @ 2ohm. Speaker is only listed as 4ohm, now rms listed, but nominal is only 150w. Guess I'm grossly over powered. I just read 600w speaker and amp had 563w rms. Keep in mind these pioneers come in a sealed box, and they are very tight. So I don't want to risk losing the seal by popping the speaker out to check the coils. Especially if I am about to return it because it's just too weak to handle the amp. My whole goal of the thread was to see if even hooking a second identical speaker to the amp was possible without damage. Thanks for all the help. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
I have the 2.5 RC lift/level. I figured it was my trail grapplers and 20's that gave the rough ride. Makes me want to get a legit 4" lift more now Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
Before I got my set I used some plastic spackle/drywall tools. They would break a lot, but never scratched anything. Just a thought if you are having trouble finding them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
They are the cheap pioneer down fires. I would assume they are SVC. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
So the speaker I have and the one I want to add are both 4 ohm, 600w max. I'm just trying to not blow them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
I did. But I'm still not sure about it. I don't want to run the amp at 2 ohms and every diagram I saw, adding a speaker did that. I'm not great at this stuff, so just want to be sure I don't slam 1500 watts to a 600w speaker Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
How did it come out? Did you make the 12 work? Just a thought I turned my downfire sub up in my previous truck. Sounded better that flapping the weather techs. Could maybe try that with yours Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
I need some help from the electronic gurus. I have a monoblock amp, runs 1500w @ 2 ohms, 750w @ 4ohms. I have one 4 ohm sub hooked up. The sub came mounted in a box, and I would like to add an identical one on the other side of the truck. To do this properly, how would I add the speaker? Run a second set of speaker wire from the single channel on the amp? Connect the 2 speakers to each other and run a common wire to the amp? Direct wire one to the amp, then "jump" to the second speaker from the first? Sorry for my ignorance in this. Just don't want to burn up the amp or the voice coils. Thanks!

Anyone tried to get a USB Bluetooth receiver and see if you connect your iPhone to that, would CarPlay work? The phone has a Bluetooth option on carplay, but the truck only allows "projection" through the USB. Just a thought to cut the cord on those short trips. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
