I looked up the correct way to wire my JL 13.5W7 1.5. Therefore it said to wire it in parrallel. I understand this will put it at .75 ohm. As I start to turn it up it sounds great, very loud but once the...


1000/1v2 Class D Monoblock Subwoofer Amplifier Specifications:
  1000/1v2

Rated Power:
1000 W RMS @ 1.5 ohm - 4 ohm (11V-14.5V)

THD at Rated Power:
<0.05% @ 4 ohm

S/N Ratio:
>95dB below rated power (A-weighted, 20 Hz - 20 kHz noise bandwidth)

Frequency Response:
5 Hz - 250 Hz (+0, -1dB)

Damping Factor:
>500 @ 4 ohm / 50 Hz


According to the chart your amp is only stable down to 1.5 Ohms, so running at .75 Ohms the noise you are hearing is the amp clipping (running more power than it can handle at low ohms)
I would suggest wiring it in series, or you could adjust the gain on the amp until the popping goes away.

Hope this helps.

My 13w7 pops loudly when i turn it up. it is in a 2 cu ft sealed box. what do i set my amp at to fix this? the amp is a 1000/1 jl


If your Subwoofer is popping it could possibly be blown. when your radio is off slightly push in on your speaker if it kinda crackles it is blown. If you are using a sealed box put it in the middle of the box. if it is ported it needs to be on the opposite side from the port

check your bass leval on your amp and make sure it is the same leval as your other amp. Also you w7 can be repaired they just change the coil. cheeper than buying a new one.

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

Wireing problem


You should run the voice coils in series so you would load your amp with 3 ohms.
