boz word of caution is to be heeded. with 2x2 ohms per speaker, you can only use one, with the voice coils ran in series to increase the resistance to 4 ohm . take a single driver, and use the series wiring on with both of the 2 ohm voice coils.
wire positive from the amp into positive of one voice coil, then the negative of that voice coil to the positive of the second voice coil 9bridging with 6 gauge or so, as was also mentioned by a previous user), then lead the negative of the second voice coil back to the amp's negative terminal.
the best way? hmm. i would start off with some wire. Keep in mind that you will need to separate the positive (usually red or has a stripe or marking on it) from the negative (Black usually is the common color for this wire) and hook the up according to your amps positive and negative hook ups / terminals following your sub-woofers terminals. then depending on your sub woofers Voice coils (Duel or single voice coils) yours are duel or quad coils but i\'m sure they are duel (2 of each positive and negative equaling a total of 4 posts on each sub-woofer). figure out your amps ohm load handling and does your amp run hot (1,2 or 4 ohm stable some are even less like 0.5 or lower) i would run at a 1 or 2 ohm load as that is usually standard on 1 channel amps. make sure to check your wiring and if your not sure about ohm loads just Google wiring for sub-woofer ohm loads such as 0.5 ohm, 1 ohm, 2 ohm or 4 ohm loads. also make sure your box is not sealed do to the fact they are siht and cant produce sound like a vented / ported enclosure keep the size as big as you can fit in your car or truck the bigger the better. i had one 8\'\' sony sub pounding like a 15\'\' sub real loud . Also MDF particle board is garbage it causes port noise and absorbs water
There are 4 connectors on each side of the
Problem with the Lanzar 15'' 2000 Watt Dual Voice Coil Subwoofer Driver for Small Enclosures Car Speaker.
how do i wire it so i can put the sub in the box so i can connect it to my amp?
That would suggest a short between the pos and neg on the amp, it shouldn't get hot, if the surge light came on it must be a dead short, if you've got a multi-meter check the resistance on the voice coil make sure its not high (like above 1Mohm) or below 4 ohms, Normally the sub will have an impedance of 4 ohms. Have you got another speaker you could test on the amp, any should do, does it get hot with nothing connected? (that would suggest a fault on the amp) is it new?
your running too low impedence, and yes its cuz of your sub wiring. How to wire it depends if its 2ohm dual voice coil, or 4ohm dual voice coil, so i'll explain both. O.K. first of all i hope its 4 ohm so you can get max power from your sub. If it is 4 ohm dual voice coil connect + to +, and - to - on your speaker, then to connect it to your amp, splice a wire into the wire running from + to + and connect it to your amp's + terminal. Do the same with your - wire. If its a 2 ohm dual voice coil, connect the + from one set of terminals on the speaker, to the - on the other terminal. Then to connect it to the amp, plug a wire from the open + terminal on the speaker and connect it to the + plug on the amp, and do, connect the empty - to the - on the amp. Good luck and if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask...
On the Sub you have 4 connectors, 2 for each voice coil... Run a jumper wire from One side of the sub to the other. Positive to negative so that now you have one set of connectors free. Doing this will make the sub able to handle more cause you're using both voice coils. Thats how i've always hooked mine up when i have duel voice coil and they always last a long time. If you're gonna bridge the amp, make sure its turned down for about 5 or 6 hours to let the sub break in.
In short yes. And is very common even has its own term called bridged. Taking two channels and making them one. I would hope that you are running a cap. that's going to put out a lot of power and stress on your battery
