Happened to me, i also had a metallic/iron smell coming from my sub... i pronounced it dead. had to buy a new one and it worked fine... if you believe its not dead then your amp is not getting enough power and most likely shutting off (protection mode), you can try buying a cap, farad 2 or better will work and is suggested for larger subs anyways

SOURCE: I have a JL Audio 12 ich subwoofer rated at 8 ohms. also a mono block insignea amplifier at one ohm stable 1-4 ohms. how to i wire it safley? possible?"

Your amp based on what you say would have no problems whatsoever with an 8 ohm load, not even if it actually has dual 4 ohm coils and you wire them in parallel giving a 2 ohm load (don't know your particular sub).

Every good car amp has protection circuits to prevent itself or the speakers from damage from too low loads so it shouldn't be a problem even if you screw up with your calculations. A good amp should even be capable of dealing with a dead short on a channel, zero ohms, activating protection of course.

Good luck and don't worry!

SOURCE: jl audio w7 13 subwoofer system 3ohm driver bridge it 2 ch amp

How much is your speaker max wattage?
If it is 750 or below, it can only be used on one channel, either the right or the left.
If speaker can handle 1500 watts then hook the positive speaker wire to R+
Hook black negative speaker wire to L-

Now it is bridged

I am wondering what amp i would need for 2 JL Audio W3v3 - 2ohms. I am looking for something around 200. SHould I go with the Mono block and how many watts?


well you can go a couple different directions. you can wire them parallel or in series. parallel will get you down to about 1.3 ohms at the amp and series will get you close to 4 ohms. you need an amplifier thats stable at either of those impedances. the lower the resistance (impedance) the more power your going to get to the subs. I manage an electronics store and specialize in mobile audio/video. we are a 'Signature JL Audio Dealer' so i like to say i know the product line very well. JL makes an amplifier that is stable from 1.5 to 4 ohms and will put out the same amount of power at any impedance in that range which is really nice. Its called their 'Slash Series' you are looking for a JL Audio 500/1 amplifier. Grab an 8 gauge amp kit (4 gauge would over do it) and wire 'em up. Enjoy!

I have two jl audio 12 w6v2 running with a jl audio 1000/1 and at high volume they make a poping noise does any one know y


That popping noise is your speaker telling you to turn it down, and that your amp is too powerful for your setup. The speaker cone is moving beyond its limits of excursion and on it's way to malfunction/blown. Basically the voice coil will fry.

Which amp goes with 2 jl audio w3v3 4 ohm


Choosing a amp isn't always easy but it first begins with what you want.

--RMS of the speakers is what you want to use to find your amp.
That's going to tell you what watt's your speakers can REALLY handle @ 4 ohms.
--Also what you want to spend $$$ will determine how clear it sounds.
--I prefer a Rockford Fosgate amp for base and kenwood for highs.
--Also look at the RMS watt's rating to find the proper power and go a bit beyond what you want so that the amp performs with ease.
--Last but not least you chose the amp for how many speakers you are going to connect to that amp. For example if you are using 2 JL audio 12" for subs, then a mono amp is perfect. But if you are connecting 4 speakers, you should begin to find the amp with four channels so that you obtain left, right , front and rear sound.

Popping sound! please help - jl 500/1 and two jl w3v3 2ohm subs


no connection are good + to + -to - thats all that matters. either the speakers are blown or you need a stronger amp. since you already tried speakers probably need bigger amp. definitley not the box. no such thing as a break in period, are the subs 10 12 inch or what. you could try to bridge them too that means hook both up to the same +-terminals, 2 wires per screw. it usually isnt the way they hook them up, its the wires fuses etc that cause problems. what guage wires is the speaker wire, the power line etc. if you give me these guages i might be able to get somewere
