This amp is 2ohm stable, but if you use a dual sub setup and use both sets of output terminals it is automatically wired parallel at 2 ohms if you then have 2 subs that are dual voice coil and the voice coils of both are wired in parallel then the load become .5-1 ohm and the amp is unstable (solution) wire 2 dual voice coil subs individually one from each terminal, and then wire the voice coils in series rather than parallel

With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp (not on the point where the ground wire connected to the vehicle), touch the red lead alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. If the voltage drops below ~11 volts on either terminal when you drive the amp hard, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is dropping too low.

How do I connect my nitro 1000 watt amp to get thr most bass .i have two 15 vx kickers


If you have the Nitro bmw-482 running it at 2 ohms will give you the max output (its not 1ohm stable so don't run it that way). First run your two dvc speakers parallel (run both negative out puts together and both positive out puts together on each speaker). After this you should have 1 positive and 1 negative wire from each speaker (4 wires altogehter). This will give you a 1 ohm load which your amp can't handle, so you have to run the 4 wires in series to create a 2 ohm load. Now take the positive wire from 1 speaker and connect it to the negative wire from the opposite speaker. Thats how to run in series. Now you should have 1 positive wire from 1 speaker and 1 negative wire from the other speaker which is 2 ohm load. Your amp sould be bridgeable, so connect the positive wire into the correct terminal of your amp and the negative wire into the correct terminal of your amp according to where to bridge it (positive into left positive, negative into right negative) . That will give you a 2 ohm load bridged which is the most power you can get out of your amp 300 watts. Medium quality amps are over rated so you will never acheive the 1000 watts as advertised.

I have two audiobahn aw1206t 12in. subs in a box hooked to a 100.1 american bass amp its 1000 watt mono block. i also ran a capacitor due to my lights dimming. but for some reason my amp keeps kicking over...


This could be caused due to the impedance load being to low. Your amp is stable to 2 ohm load however its very possible that you have your subs wired to a 1 ohm load that would cause the amp to go into protect mode. The subs you have are dual 4 ohm voice coils and would need to be wired in series/parallel. I've included a link that will show you how the subs should be wired.

How do i wire a single sub at 4 ohms? which speaker terminals would i use?


If your single sub is a 4 ohm sub, you just connect + and - on the amp to the corresponding + and - terminals on the sub.
If it's a dual voice coil sub, it would have to be 2 ohms per voice coil or 8 ohms per voice coil to be able to achieve a 4 ohm load.

This will show you exactly how you'd need to do it:

How do I hook up my infinity 1600a at 2ohms with 2 4ohm speakers?


Placing the speakers next to each other face down, you will notice that the connection points run in sequence +- and +-. Now connect the - (negative) from the one speaker, to the + (positive) of the other speaker. Now connect the open + from the one speaker and the open - from the other speaker to your amp. Your amp should have a bridging indication. On the connection points of the amp, you should see a mark pointing to the first + and the last -. That will be your bridge and thus utilizing the full potential of your amplifier

Cuts out at high volume.


and that's fine with the ohm load. But if you have them wired all together or in parrelel it changes the ohm load. You need to wire them all together in parreallel or in series to get the correct ohm load. Check the wiring diagram at www.the12volt.com to see what your options are. the mrp amps are at a 2 ohm load smallest stable so makesure they are wired above or right at

12 w 3 v3 2 cut off


Again as I have stated in my other answer to you. You can not wire two SVC 2 ohm subs to acheive a 2 ohm load. more than likely you are running your amp at 1 ohm mono and this is why it is clipping and shutting off.

Amp Issues


1) Make sure a bridged load of no less than 4 ohms is applied.
2) make sure both the left & right channels are working.

Hi JJerky,

I suggest we go for 2 ohm to preserve the amp and not heat things up so bad.
Your Subs are Dual Voice Coil(DVC) and 2 ohms each coil. I am going to tell you the wiring to insure you get balanced response from both Subs. We will wire the Subs Voice coils in Parallel to make them 1 ohm each. Then we will wire the Amp to the subs in series to make the total load on the amp 2 ohms. When you have series to both subs each sub gets the same current.


Example of my coding :SUB1VC1+ = Subwoofer 1 Voice Coil 1 Postive terminal.

SUB1VC1+ to SUB1VC2+
SUB1VC1 - to SUB1VC2-

SUB2VC1 + to SUB2VC2 +
SUB2VC1 - to SUB2VC2 -

AMP + to SUB1VC1 +
SUB1VC1 - to SUB2VC1 +
SUB2VC1 - to AMP -

This should give you a good repsonse.

Adjust your Bass Gain down very low at first. Also cut you LPF to about 60 hz. Crank up the volume on a bass test Audio track, Adjust the Bass Gain up unitl you get distortion. The turn it back a little. This is proper setting for your Gain.
