The large blade is the + or positive terminal but so long as the left and right speaker are wired the same way it doesn't matter as it is the phase that matters -it's an AC signal so there really isn't a positive or negative voltage. If the speakers are not wired the same then they are out of phase which results in cancelling out frequencies like losing the bass and sounding 'tinny'. ~Steve Medley

If you hook what is now the left speaker does it work on the right hand channel? If not the cable to it is defective or the connections or the Amplifier is defective.

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..

How do wire my 15'' to 1ohm


If each voice coil is rated at 2-ohm, then wire it in "parallel". This will make a 1-ohm total load.

amp pos. out to coil 1 pos. to coil 2 pos.

amp neg. out to coil 1 neg. to coil 2 neg.

If the they are dual 4-ohm, the rating would be 2-ohm in parallel.

Speaker wire not colour coded


You can gently tap a nine-volt battery to the side of the wire pair that will be connect to the amplifier. When you've got the loudspeaker connected in proper phase, the speaker will push out, instead of pulling in.

I bought a 500/1 jl audio amp and also a w7 10 sub


if its cutting off and right back on then check your ground and your power wire makes sure both are connected good and none of your fuse's are blown, either that or you got a wire hooked up backwards in the sub.. but my guess is that the sub is hooked up wrong... that sub should be hooked up in a series or in parallel,

ok if your running just one speaker, it should be hooked up like this and 2 speakers are a different way...

this is parallel :pos to pos , neg to neg, then one wire coming from pos on sub to pos on amp then neg on sub to neg on amp but bridge the amp on your amp should be 2 pos and 2 neg in two different channels take the pos off the sub into the pos on 1 channel and then the neg from sub to the neg on the other channel,

this is series : on the sub it will go pos to neg then the other neg and pos will go to the amp, but make sure the pos and neg r on different sides of the sub, dont hook them both to the same coil

if your need more help give me your email and ill send you a pic of how to do it...
