Depends on the amplifier if you have a mono block amp or a regular 2 output amp if it is 2 output make sure to bridge and that means the negative to one output and positive to the other output then need to find out the rms on the speaker. the amp should have the ability to adjust it you might want to get a digital multimeter set it to watts and make sure you only set it to the RMS of the speaker because max handling should be the 1800 and usually the RMS is half the max so it should be 900 w again it depends on the amp and were the adjusting knob is and or if it has one

How do I hook up my adiobahn immortal awis12p quad coil in parallel and in series


Parallel would be + to + and - to -. The end result is that the ohms of each voice coil add together. So 4ohm+4ohm+4ohm+4ohm would be 16 ohm final load. Series is +to -. And the ohms drops. With 4 voice coils you have alot of choices as to how to wire it..all of which is determined by the amplifier you are using.

Can I wire 2 dual 2ohm subwoofers to a 1ohm load and yes my amp is 1ohm stable I want to get the max rms from my amp


King Chambers,

It would be optimal to have subwoofers that are Dual 4 Ohm. However I am going to tell you the most optimal way to hook up the combination you have to extract the most power out of your amplifier.

You will need to wire each subwoofer in series by taking the positive from one coil on the subwoofer and connecting it to the other voice coil on the same subwoofer; then take the left over positive and negative and hook that to your amplifier.

You will do the same with the other subwoofer. This will give you a 2 ohm load. If you had dual 4 ohm coils then we could get you down to a 1 ohm load.

Got 2 woofers, 2ohm stable each. If I get 1ohm stable monoblock amp, will it split that 1ohm equally in 2ohms for each speaker, or would I have to buy another 2 speakers that r 1ohm stable each?


Connecting the two 2 ohm speakers in parallel will create a 1 ohm load. Connect the positives of both speakers to the plus output of the amp, both negatives of the speakers to the minus output of the amp.

What is the Specs for Digital starsound 12" ssw-f1-1242?


Starsound 12" 2000w Subwoofer
- 700rms
- stamped slim steel basket
- dual 4ohm 2" ASV voice coil
- 40 oz magnet structure
- rubber gasket ring
- silver push terminal
Not that good of quality speakers. You would be lucky if they lasted a couple months pushing 700 watts rms.

How do you hook up the speaker wire to the ab sub out and what is the best way to hook them up at what ohm


Not sure what you mean by AB but being that this is a monoblock or 1 channel amplifier you can only hook it up 1 way. Verify the polarity from your speaker box. + to + and - to -. As far as your impedance is concerned this amp is stable to 1.5 ohms but for this case we will assume you have two 4 ohm subwoofers. When you parallel these together you will have a total effective load of 2 ohms on the amplifier. This is a stable operating impedance for the amp.

Other impedance options are:

two 8 ohm speakers = 4 ohm load
three 8 ohm speakers = 2.66 ohms

If you have dual voice coil subwoofers then parallel the coils on each sub + to + and - to -. Depending on the impedance of each sub you may then have to wire the individual subwoofers in series. Here is an example.


2 dual voice coils with 4 ohm taps

Each subwoofer with the coils in parallel would be a 2 ohm load if you were to then parallel the two subwoofers together you would have 1 ohm total load on your amp. This is BAD for your amp. Your option is to run the subwoofers in series.

To run the speakers in series is simple. The + from one speaker and the - from the other will be connected to the amp. The other + and - from the speakers will be connected together.

Here is a wiring diagram from kicker.

Can i power 2 12 subs a rockford punch z and a xplode with this amp i found all this **** in my garage and i need to know if it will power all this


First of all. Using two different kinds of sub woofers, is not an option, as these two sub woofers have different specifications and you should never mix sub woofers. Now the better choice from the 2, would probably be the Rockford. (cant be sure without knowing the models, power handling is also a factor in how well either of the sub woofers will play, but Rockford as a rule makes better sub woofers than Sony does) In my opinion, both the sub woofers deserve a better amplifier than what Boss has to offer. However to connect either of these sub woofers, you would need to determine how many voice coils it has and how many OHM the voice coil/s are. If it is a DVC (dual voice coil) and each voice coil is 4 OHM or 2 OHM, then you can connect one voice coil to one channel of the amplifier and the other voice coil to the other channel of the amplifier. If it is a DVC 2OHM you can also connect it wired in Series/Series to give a 4OHM load and should be connected to the BRIDGE dedicated speaker outputs of your amplifier. If it is a SVC (single voice coil) and it is 4 OHM, then you can connect the sub woofer to the designated speaker outputs of your amplifier that states BRIDGE. DO NOT run the amplifier in BRIDGE mode at 2 OHM as this will probably damage the amplifier. dreamsystems

What is the best adjustment for a Nitro BMW 481 with one 12" Memphis subwoofer?


First you need to determine what kind of subwoofer it is and by that i mean, is it a dual voice coil subwoofer or a single voice coil sub woofer.
Dual voice coil(DVC)
Depending on how many Ohms each voice coil is you will have the amplifier drive a specific load (4OHM stereo (75 RMS x 2) 150RMS total power / 2OHM stereo(100RMS x 2) 200RMS total power) Connect each voice coils separatley to each speaker output of the amplifier for this configaration. Always making sure that the + & - of each voice coil go to the coresponding location of the speaker outputs of your amplifier.

If your sub woofer is a single 4OHM voice coil then your cables should be connected to the coresponding location on your amplifier which states "BRIDGED" It is marked clearly on the speaker outputs of your amplfier.

If it is a 2OHM then do not connect it to the amplifier. The specific amplifier is not stable at 2OHMS bridged and will most likely get damaged if you try to operate it at that OHM load.

IMPORTANT:
On the side of the amplifier where the adjustments are there is a switch that indicates X-OVER. (LPF/HPF/FULL) Make sure to set it to LPF (Low Pass Filter). (not doing so can damage the subwoofer)
On the left hand side of the X-OVER there is the adjustment for the LPF (30-250) the best setting would be at the same frequency that your speakers stop
(example):
If your speakers have a frequency response of 60Hz to 20KHz then setting your LPF to roughly 70 to 80 will be ideal. The rule is that where one speaker drivers frequency ends, the other must continue in order to complete the full range of audible frequencies.

if you have any more questions feel free to ask.
Respectfully

Does anyone haven a wiring diagram for a quad 4ohm voice coil subwoofer?


Basic wiring dictates that with a speaker with 4 voice coils all at 4 ohms each is meant to be wired in parallel. This will put the load at a 1 ohm total load on the amplifier. Wiring in parallel is positive out from amp to pos. to pos. to pos. to pos.. And neg. out from amp to neg., to neg., to neg., to neg..
