Hi folks :D ,

Speaker wiring advice for 2001 Seicento please.

I have fitted 2 mid/bass and 2 tweeters on the rear shelf, but I used a 'jump off' feed from the front speakers to power them.
The Sony HU on late model Seicentos has a 4x50 watt amp, so are there another pair of dedicated rear speaker outputs on the back that Fiat didn't use? (I know I could take it out and look for myself before anyone says, but to save me having to do it, I wondered if anyone else had wired their rear speakers differently?).

How I have it works fine, but obviously the fader doesn't do anything as all the speakers are fed from just 2 channels and I'd prefer to utilise the 4 channels as they were meant to run, plus I'm only using half of the amp's power, which is obviously not ideal.

Cheers for any info (y)

just look on the iso plug and you should see the wiring for rear speakers.
im sure it was an option on sei's so should be there :)
however dont think your pumping out 4x50 watts on the onboard HU amp.thats absolute peak power and is just a number they stick on to look good ;)

Cheers custard (y) , I'll have a look over the weekend. I've since learned that the very last Seis did have rear speakers, so you're right, there should be provisions for them. Yeah, the 4x50 will be a 'look good' figure, the actual RMS output will probably be a quarter of that!

my sei had the sony stereo but didnt have the wiring in place for rear speakers. however yours been a MS it might be there.

if not, get an ISO extension and use that to snip into, saves snipping the factory wiring!
