Alot of times its not just the amp that gives you better sounding bass.. A lot has a to do with a few other factors as well.. first off your subwoofer.. the bigger the subwoofer the deeper the bass. Some woofers exturde, or flex differently depending on the quality and structure of the woofer.. 2nd is gonna be the sub box. different size boxes will give your sub diff. depths of bass. ... general idea is the bigger the box deeper the bass. But if your woofer is not supplied enough power a big box is useless.   With that size amp your best bet is too run a single woofer. Probably a 10inch woofer would sound the best.. but it in.75cub inch. sealed box.. should sound great.

I have 2 12in kenwoods and a 1200 watt pyrimade amp, how can i hook these up to be the loudest


1st have your subs facing inwards towards the front of the car, not facing out the boot, This creates a better bass.

Wire 1 sub to one channel and the other sub to the other channel.

Turn down your gain as low as possible and then power everything up.

turn volume to desired loudness and then start turning up the gain slowly, if distorts a little turn in back down a notch.

avoid using bass boost, I agree it sounds great but it puts more strain on your amp and shortens its life.

after sorting out your gain, tweak all others until sound is bassy and clear with no distortion.

If you would like to use bass boost, turn on bass boost first, then up your gain etc.

I have a 1800 watt amp but the red light is on but it dose sound like the bass works but not it its prime


the red light is for power in protect mode it should be orange and it will not emmit sound if you think you should have better sounding bass or more bass you can try to play with the gains on the amp or possibly if you have the negative or positive hooked up wrong from a speaker to the amp this will cause the bass to be lower and somewhat distorted double check your positive and negative wires from the speaker to the amp and make sure they are correct

Have kenwood mono amp 4,2,1 ohm capabilitie. What is the best sub to run. The amp is 1600 watts, howmany ohms and 1 or 2 voice coils.


Hello pelikant75,

The best answer depends on your budget for the sub(s) and exactly what kind of sound you are looking to get. Your amps RMS output at 4 ohms is 200 watts and at 2 ohms, it's 400 watts. I could not find that it was 1 ohm stable.

If you are looking for the absolute best bang for your buck, I would highly recommend a pair of entry level MTX 10" subs, model 4501-04, currently priced by Crutchfield at $49.99. And if you buy a pair, they throw in a free Bass Slammer BS210S sealed enclosure. The MTX's power range is 112.5 to 225 watts each, right in there with your amps output. 2 of them in parallel give you a 2 ohm load, just right for your amps best power. And they sound great. You simply can't find a better deal for $100 bucks!

If you want a little better SQ, a pair of Rockford-Fosgate P1S410's should be considered. Again, going to Crutchfield, they currently have this one "BOGO" (buy one get one) for $99.99. You will have to provide your own box, though, no free one with these.

Finally, if you want the best SQ, and your budget allows, consider a set of Alpine SWR-1022D's for $179.99 each. These have dual 2 ohm voice coils, allowing you to series the coils and parallel the subs, resulting in a 2 ohm load to you amp just like the MTX's and RF's recommended above. You will probably want a somewhat larger enclosure for the Alpines as well as a fatter wallet. Your amp is right at the lower end for powering them, so they probably will not be as loud. But they will sound good.

One thing we haven't discussed is the box. The enclosure is just as important, perhaps even more important than the sub(s). More accurate bass is generally produced from a sealed enclosure. A ported enclosure will be louder, but at the expense of sound quality. And whether it's sealed or ported, the enclosure needs to have enough internal volume for the particular sub you are planning to use. A sealed box in the range of .75 to 1 cu/ft will be OK for any of the recommended subs. Add about 15-20% more volume for a ported box and keep in mind that the port needs to be specifically sized for the frequency for which it is tuned.

Hope this helps.

220 watt car amp -- 8 or 10 gauge amp kit?


when in doubt go bigger, you might want to get a bigger amp down the road, so its better to not have to buy another wiring kit later.
and the bigger the wire the less line loss you will have so your amp will sound and perform better.

Wiring


Usually an 800 watt peak sub would be a 400 watt rms. Hmmmm. Anyway, just bridge the amp (1x 380) nd keep the gain up enough to stay clean. Watch the sub and turn up gain until it starts to distort, then back it down a hair. Do this with the CD players volume up 2/3 to 3/4 volume with the BASS and treble at zero (bass better at minus 4 or so if you are a bass head! Hope thishelps.

When the bass cut on the speakers cut off


220 watts RMS x 1 at 4 ohms (400 watts RMS x 1 at 2 ohms)
the amplifier may be over-driven. are there red protection lights coming on the front panel? Or a loose wire - power, ground, or speaker.

Hi Trim God,

 

I do not reccommend that you push the Pioneer speakers over 100 watts.  The jenson will already drown the car with bass through your pioneers so much you will want to turn off the bass boost when playing some low bass hip hop songs. It changes from one venue of song to another, so I just keep the jenson bass boost off and use my head unit to adjsut the sound to fit my listening prefences. I am telling you man, you will be blown away .  Hook up the pioneers straight to the Channels,. do not bridge.  I put Subs in my truck though.  I used the Pass output to send the audio to me Jenson 2 Channel 600W amp. I drive one 10 inch enclosed JBL Class A/B Sub. I bridged the output of the 600 W amp to the 10 inch sub  in my Z28.  The pioneers never get drowned out.  I did smoke my 2 channel Amp one time. and also took out a MTD 10inch sub. I am talk shooting flames and smoked the whole car up. I think if you bride the XA4150 to the pioneers, you will have the flaming smoke problem in no time.
