Default Audio help please

I have a 2016 F350 dually with the Sony premium audio. That being said I need help, I have sync 2 with the Sony system. I bought a Kenwood KAC-5206 amp and two Kenwood 12s in a box from a friend who was upgrading. I also have a LC7i to integrate. I have no and I mean NO audio knowledge at all. All this ohms amps, wiring parallel or in series, one channel two channel three channel or four, just all this has driven me crazy trying to learn it. Ive watched everything, read everything and it just makes me more crazy. Can some of you fine guys/gals help me out. I want to keep my amp to run everything and the Kenwood amp to run the two Kenwood 12s. Can anyone in dummy terms and when I say dummy, I mean dummy. Pictures and/or video would be great. I dont know if the speakers are wired right for what I have, if everything is doable, nothing. Please please help....

https://www.the12volt.com/

that amp is only rated 4 ohms 60W x 2/2 ohms 75W x 2/Bridged 150W x 1. It would help more if i knew the model of subs you have.

when i started out, that site was a very big help and still use it. This forum was more helpful then also but i guess it's lost it's edge but I know i need to start gaining interest again. To calculate the ohm load your amp will see use this calculator. R1/R2/R3 ofcoarse will be the resistance of each speaker terminal(voice coil).

pm me if you need anymore help but youtube and google are very good references. If you want to know the nitty gritty of it all. Go here.. Basic Car Audio Electronics

Default Regarding your hookup

Sounds to me like you have just about everything you need for a substantial improvement in your sound system, without having to hack up any of your factory setup... But if you don't know what you're doing, I highly recommend learning yourself or finding someone who does.

My buddy did something similar in his truck . What he did was cut the speaker wires behind the radio since in his case it was too hard to trace the wires to the door speakers. He ran new wires to the lc7i and hooked his amp up from that.

lol yes Im about to agree with you there. This audio stuff has never been good to me or me to it. killeen is in Texas about 45 minutes North of Austin. I was really hoping I could go out with a bang and finally do one job myself. But if I did Id be afraid Id would really go boom. Lol. But in the real I clearly no nothing about this stuff.
