It’s especially easy to learn how to unplug a speaker plug from an Alpine PDX 4.100 since many compact car audio amplifiers feature quick disconnect plugs for easy installation. This model is 60% smaller than previous models and outputs the same amount of power with its maximum output rated at 100W x 4 (RMS). It also has a 4/3/2 channel operation and sports a stackable installation design. You can easily install it without sacrificing space, power, or performance.
To unplug a speaker plug from an Alpine PDX 4.100, you will need:
- Hex wrench
- Wire cutter
- Wire stripper
- Be careful with speaker wire connections. Before connecting the speaker plug into the Alpine PDX 4.100 unit, you’ll need to insert the speaker wire into the speaker plug. Check that the speaker wire gauge for this unit is AWG8-AWG16, and that the wire stripping should be between 7-10mm (9/32”-3/8”). Now you’re ready to start the process. Loosen the speaker plug’s hexagon screws using the small hex wrench that should be supplied with the package. At this point, fully insert the speaker wire into the terminal hole. Check for the positive or negative signals on the speaker plug and tighten the hexagon screws.
- Locate the speaker output sockets. Take a look at the back of the Alpine PDX 4.100 unit. You’ll find four speaker sockets. Each should be labeled as follows: CH-1, CH-2, CH-3 and CH-4. These speaker sockets are located between the “FUSE” section and the RCA input jacks at the back of the unit.
- Unplug the speaker plug. When you insert the speaker plug into the unit, do so firmly to avoid a poor connection. Take into consideration that the speaker plug can be connected either way, regardless of the polarity indication. It’s very important to note that you must connect the speaker leads together or to chassis ground. To unplug the speaker plug, simply pull it away from the Alpine PDX 4.100 unit and then loosen the hex screws using the hex wrench. Disconnect the speaker wires, and then tighten them again using the hex wrench.
