your only choice is to run the amplifier at a 4 ohm mono load - this will not reult in the amplifier making much power.
Positive on sub to Positive on amp.
Negative on sub to Negative on amp.
This is your only possibility.

Adding a second sub in the same fashion will result in a 2 ohm load, and your amplifier will run at its rated potential.

The best thing to do would be to get an amp installation kit, at an auto stereo store or Wal-Mart automotive department. It will have the wiring and connects that you'll need to wire everything up.

Easy, you grab a dual wire cable (like the one in the back of your amp that runs to the speaker) and stick each wire on one end to the positives on your amp. Then, on the other end, twist both wires together to form one wire. Hook it into your positive connection on the sub(s). Repeat on negative side.

I have JBL GT5-S644 ,4chnnel,800 watts, bridgeable car amplifier.Is it possible to pair this amp with 2 pioneer 900 watts subwoofers working with 12 volt adapter at 80 amps in 240 volt in home ?


Hello
yes it is possible but you will find that the amp is going to be under powered to drive all three subs, will have to look at getting a stronger amp later. hope you enjoy rattling the house apart.
Enjoy

Can i wire one speaker to the other speaker inside the box so that i only have one positive and one negative cable wire coming out out of the box and to the amp


Hello... I can help you with this question. Yes it is possible to do this, but you will have to use a 2 ohm stable mono block amplifier in order to do this. By connecting both positives together and both negatives together, you will be running a 2 ohm load. So if your amp is a monoblock amp, connections will be simple as tieing all the positives together and the negatives together and just hook to the amp. If you are using a 2 channel amplifier that is bridgeable, then you will need to series the subwoofers to an 8 ohm load and then bridge the amplifier to 1 channel. The way you series the subwoofers is take the positive wire in the box and hook to the positive on subwoofer #1. Take the negative wire in the box and hook to the negative on subwoofer #2. Then take a piece of wire and hook the negative from subwoofer #1 to the positive connector on subwoofer #2. Then hook the wires to the amplifier. To bridge the amplifier (if it is a 2 channel bridgeable) would be to use the left positive and the right negative, but check the amplifier for markings to confirm this. If you have any other questions, feel free to let me know and I will help you out! Hope this helps!!

Kenwoodxw1000f shut off after 10 sec


the problem sounds like your new sub is drawing to much power and your amp can not handle it. bridging the amp is a good way to get the full power out of your amp. But it isnt always suggested, my solution is to get a bigger amp. I install stereo systems for a living, and i tell my customers that it is smart to get an amp about 100 more watts then the rms rating of your subwoofer.

They are not wanting to play like they should


Hello again debrahood196,

Your KAC-5204 amp is only rated to put out 60 watts per channel and really cannot push very hard. If your subs are the KFC-W110S, they are 8ohm subs and you will get better power from the amp by using the bridged connections, positive (+) on the left channel and negative (-) on the right channel. Wire both positives and both negatives from both subs to the bridged connections and the output will be 150 watts into 4ohms. Giving each sub 75 watts should make them push a little harder.

I have two 15 inch L7 Solo-Baric Subwoofers and need an amp


I would recommend a brand named class D amplifier.
Connect both woofers in parallel (Positive to positive, and negetive to negetive) in a sealed enclosure. Make sure you have no air leaks. By connecting them in parallel the combined impedance will be two ohms. Make sure that the amplifier you choose can handle a load with that low of a resistance. Any high end amp should do this. Buy as much power as you can, but I would say a minimum of 1000W RMS. Beware of cheaper amps advertising "peak power". This can be considered half of what the RMS power would be (1200W peak = 600W RMS approximately).

Next, Run very heavy gauge (zero guage if you can) power line directly from the battery. Protect the wire where it passes through the body with a rubber grommet or otherwise something to keep the metal from cutting into it, and PUT A FUSE IN. I cant stress that enough. Put an 80 amp fuse in line incase you have an accident. Otherwise your car could very well burn!

Want even more punch?
Back at the amp, install the largest stiffener capacitor you can afford 1 Farad or bigger. Install this in a space where it would be protected in the event of an accident (on the inside of the strut tower or somewhere above the axle). There is a whole lot of energy stored in there that you don't want unleashed on you!

If you have any other questions please ask away!
