ASSUMING that the amp is OK with a 2ohm load then you "set it up" by the configuration of the speakers you use. Two 4 ohm speakers if parallel will give you a 2 ohm load. However, if you are bridging the ouputs then a single 4 ohm speaker bridged between the two outputs will put a 2 ohm load on each channel. Be very careful if you are bridging the outputs that you know what you are doing. On average, when bridged wrong (too much load) the amp will last about one month before it fries. Get some help if you are bridging. Be sure not sorry.

I have 2 different subs in one box, a 12" MTX thunder and a 12" Kicker CVR. the kicker is a dual voice coil while the MTX I dont believe is. Can I use one amp for this set up? And how would it be wired?


im guessing both speakers are 4 ohms ..mtx 4ohms and kicker dual 4ohms..now if your amp can go down to 1 ohm wiring the kicker dual coils in parallel (2ohms) and the mtx connected together (4ohms) should leave you with a final impedance between 1 and 2 ohms ...i suggest you use one or get another

Can i run a 4ohm.dvc & a 3ohm.svc off of a mtx te 801d


if you wire the 4 ohm sub voice coils in parallel you will have a 2 ohm load for the Image Dynamics sub, the JL sub only being single voice coil will of course be 3 ohm.
You cannot connect them both to the amp you specified as when connected the total load will be less than 2ohms and the amp will either trip it's protection circuit or could damage the amp, My suggestion is to try each sub separately and decide on the one you like the most or obtain a matching pair for the 4ohm DVC.

I have 4 mtx 9500 12in subs 2 of them is on a mtx 92001 and the other is on a mtx 4001d . would it be better to run all four on the mtx 4001d. for more power and a better sound or how should i run this set...


NEVER mix different power amps. Depending on the ohms of your subs, sell one of the amps, up to you. The 4001 has more power, but either amp will do the job, the amp needs to see a 1 ohm load, so your subs have to be dual 2 ohms, or single 4 ohms to do this. If your subs are dual 4 ohms then you will have to run your amp at 2 ohms which would be have the power, or a half an ohm, (Not Recomended) and be at double the power. You may be able to do a competion sound off and just "Burp" the subs, but at a half an ohm, dont expect to listen to it to long before it goes into protect and shuts down.

When i plug the phonejack style bass controller in all the bass quits and as soon as i unplug it the bass come back instantly. also, next to the spot where you plug the bass controller to the amp there is...


I am guessing the bass control is just a potentiometer that you plug in. It could be open and that is why the bass dies. As far as the switch goes, I am not familiar with the amp but it sounds like a crossover between low frequency and subsonic frequency.

The car is all wired the power is good the ground is good the amp work and i have the sub turned on with the nob but the sub doesn't work it has a 800w rms amp and two 400w rms subs mtx 7500


You could have the subs wired in the wrong ohm. It might be turning off the amp and check to make sure that you rca cables from the head unit to the amp are connected right.

i would go with the 801.And ithink u meant the 4501 not 4051.Both super power amps. competition stuff.your woofers are 4ohms dual voice coils.so you can series the coil on eaach woffer and use the two channels on the amp.they play at 2ohms.I think if you drop it down to 1 ohm you really be taxing you alternator that is series power.Yioou would need a special alternator.Even with them running in 2 ohms you better hav eat least a 2 farad cap.OR two batteries.. ! more thing don 't pump it up with window s closeed .you'll pop them.serious dbl. you be pumping.I'm jealous.Rating please and enjoy.
