Stupid question as I'm usually good at this stuff but the manual confused me a bit. As the title states I have 4 Rev10's prewired down to my amp and just installed a KS600.2. Amp is two channel but I assume I want to run in 2ohm mode to get the needed 1200rms. Help me wire these since I already have the wires down to the amp.

wire them in parallel. if your pre wired to the amp just run a pair of positives and negatives to each of the 2 amp channels.

still confused... if I only run a pair of positives and negatives to the amp what do I do with the other pairs? connect them to eachother? The more I look the more I get confused. You would think there would be a wiring diagram in the manual for my situation as the 600.2 was designed for 4 tower speakers.

Think I got it. Tower is wired with two runs. Inside and outside speakers basically. So for lets say the inside speakers I will connect a pos. and neg. from each speaker and run the other pos. and neg. to the bridged channel (outside pos. and neg. on amp. Repeat for the other set. Correct?

You should have 4 pair of speaker wires running from the tower to the amps. that is 4 positives and 4 negatives. wire the positives together from say the 2 port speakers to the positive output of the left channel of the amp. wire the 2 negatives to the negative output of the left channel of the amp. Then wire the 2 positves from the 2 starboard speakers together into the right channel and negatives together into the right channel. your amp should not be in bridge mode.

make sense?

If you only have 2 pairs of wires coming down to the amps the speakers may already be wired parallel inside the tower. If that is the case, just hook each wire pair to each channel of the amp.

No. There is a pos and negative for each speaker. So it's as simple as each speaker goes to pos. and neg? Wouldn't this result in 4 ohms at the amp? Not 1200rms?

I have the same set up. Take the left side speaker wires twist the positive leads together then take the two negative leads and twist them together. You now have two speakers connected together at the end to make one lead. Now connect that to the left side on the amp. Then just do the same on the other side. Two 4 ohm speakers wired together gives you a 2 ohm load. The amp will sense the load and put out the proper power it is that easy

Any tips on settings for the 600.2. I see it came with a bass knob... will this work on full range so I can turn down the tower speakers gain?

spend the cash and get a wetsounds 420 EQ .The Bass knob that came with the amp is used when the amp is used to power a sub. Follow the tuning instructions that come with the 420 EQ and you will be set Other than that set the amp to high pass and the freq. about 80hz
