I need to wire up a rockford fosgate punch hx2 12" subwoofer to a 500 watt single channel amp and i need to know how to wire the dual voice coil properly ??


Wire it in a series. One wire from amp positive to one positive speaker terminal. One wire from amp negative to negative speaker terminal. This should leave one positive and one negative termianl on the sub. Use one additonal wire to connect these two, this wire should not be connected to anything else other than the two remaining terminals. This will allow you to have the music up louder with higher amp settings without having to worry about blowing the speaker as easily.

You probably have too much hooked up for the size of your power supply which is presumably a small car battery. You either need to get:

A) New, better bigger battery.
B) Capacitor in series with battery.
C) Both of the above.

Your speakers aren't strong enough to handle the current from the amp, 8" speakers connected to an 800 watt amp? You need MORE SPEAKER than that.
