Default SX4 ICE - Subwoofer Install?

Getting my SX4 this week. Does anyone know if the ZXi variant has a preout to connect a subwoofer amp? problem is I already have an amp which does not have speaker level inputs.
Any info is appreciated. Thanks,
Manish

Not sure, That info would have really helped, thats why asking the forum gurus if anyone has any info. Also went throu the SX4 forum (SX4 Forums), but couldnt get much details there either. The US model (4x4) has a slightly diff HU but I guess the connector pinout should be pretty similar

1KW...

The SX4 has a Nippon / Kenwwod OE unit which is actually a single DIN unit with a 2DIN facia. Yes it has a single pair of full range preout.

You can use a electronic crossover which will take his single RCA input and then split the signals for front rear and sub with a requisite HPF and LPF for all the different channels. Also this crossover has individual gain settings.. If it is to be used only for a subwoofer then u can use only the sub out of the same and use the high level output for the fronts and the rears and later you have an option to add another amp for the front and the rear..
If you choose the use all the outputs of the crossover then u need to have a minimum 5 channel amp or then 2 amps .. one which is a 4 channel for the front and the rear and a 2 channel amp for the subwoofer..

Another option is that you use this single low level (RCA) output to drive only the subwoofer amp. Most amps have built in cross over for HPF or LPF. And use the high level output from the amp of the HU to drive the front and the rear speakers..

Cheerss

Exactly.

The player is average as build quality goes. Cant comment on the sound as I wasn't really expecting much from the OE speakers and didn't Thankfully it does have a pair of preouts so thats good. Beyond that it has MP3/WMA playback and thats about it. No more features s such. If you want to replace this unit and install a regular DIN/2DIN HU get the SI2228B Kit from Scosche.

If I replace the stock HU with a new HU, will the audio controls on the steering wheel work ?

You dont need an interface for Nippon. Only if you change the HU you need an interface for the steering remote buttons to work properly.

Thumbs up SX4 ZXi - Integrated HU Audio Thread!!

I would like to get my speakers upgraded on my new SX4 Zxi which comes with an OE HU (Nippon). I am not sure whether I should go for components both at the front and back or Components at the front and coaxials at the back. Please shed some light on how should I go about this. The Dealer informed me that teh 4 OE speakers are of 6" and fitted on the doors with the 2 tweeters at the top of the front doors. I just want the factory fitted speakers to be replaced with the new ones. I am also wondering about the placement of the Crossover unit without visibly protruding inside the cabin.

Can you also please suggest some mid level (price) comps and speaker units.

Thanks in Advance for all your help!

the crossover can be hiddeninteh dash or in the door.

a good starter budget would 10K for 4 speakers. quite obviously the sky is the limit.

Hi Navin and low_bass_makker,

Thanks for the replies. Budget is not a problem as long as it sticks to my conditions. No extra cutouts, subs and amps. Is it better to go for comps at both the front and back? If so what is the advantage?

Thanks again.
